Benefits of SHR Diode Laser for Hair Removal

Why more Singaporean men are opting for laser hair removal

In my years working in the aesthetics industry, I’ve noticed a growing trend among Singaporean men seeking laser hair removal treatments. Many of them come to me with questions about the best methods and technologies available. As the Aesthetic Director at Wellaholic, I always recommend our Super Hair Removal (SHR) diode laser system for male clients.

The SHR diode laser is specifically designed for safe and effective hair removal on male skin types. It uses gentle yet powerful pulses of laser energy to target and disable hair follicles, preventing future growth.

In the rest of this article, I’ll explain why the SHR diode laser is an excellent choice for Singaporean men looking to achieve smooth, hair-free skin.

As the aesthetic industry evolves, so does the pursuit of personal grooming among Singaporean men. The rising trend of laser hair removal is no longer a secret, and it’s not just about vanity. It’s about embracing change, seeking improvement, and striving for a polished look that exudes confidence.

The Different Types of Laser Hair Removal

As an aesthetic director with over a decade of experience, I’ve seen laser hair removal technology evolve. Let me break it down for you.

ND: YAG lasers are great for darker skin tones. They target melanin without damaging the surrounding skin. SHR or Super Hair Removal uses low-energy pulses for gradual, painless hair reduction. It’s safe for all skin types.

Diode lasers are effective on darker hair. They use longer wavelengths to penetrate deeper into the skin. Alexandrite lasers work best on lighter skin tones with darker hair.

The right laser depends on your skin tone and hair colour. During your consultation, we’ll assess your needs to recommend the best option. With the latest technologies, laser hair removal is safer and more comfortable than ever before.

Male therapists who specialize in hair removal for men typically have a strong understanding of male anatomy. This knowledge is important because male hair growth patterns can differ from those of females.

How laser hair removal works

I’ve been in the aesthetics industry for over a decade. Let me share how laser hair removal works.

Laser hair removal uses concentrated light to target and destroy hair follicles. The laser beam passes through the skin and gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. This heat damages the follicle to inhibit future hair growth.

Most clients need 6-8 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. The laser only treats hair in the active growth phase. So multiple sessions are needed to catch all the follicles in their growth cycles.

After the initial sessions, you’ll only need maintenance treatments once or twice a year. Laser hair removal provides long-lasting hair reduction. But it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal for everyone.

There are many benefits to having a male therapist for hair removal. They are stronger and can handle the pain better, they have steadier hands, and they understand the male body better.

The benefits of laser hair removal for Singaporean men

As an aesthetic director, I often get asked about laser hair removal for men. It’s a popular treatment that offers great results. Let me share some benefits.

Laser hair removal is a long-lasting solution for unwanted hair. The laser targets and destroys hair follicles, preventing future growth. This means less time and money spent on shaving or waxing. Many men opt for laser on the back, chest, and other areas prone to excessive hair.

The treatment is safe when done by trained professionals. We use advanced lasers that minimize discomfort and risk. Most men find it tolerable, like a rubber band snap. The results are smooth, hair-free skin that looks and feels great.

I always remind my male clients that consistency is key. Multiple sessions are needed for optimal results as hair grows in cycles. But in the end, laser hair removal saves time and boosts confidence. It’s a worthwhile investment for the modern Singaporean man.

What kind of laser hair removal is available for Singaporean men?

Laser Types for Hair Removal: Matching Skin and Hair Color

There’s a range of lasers used for hair removal, with the choice largely determined by an individual’s skin type and hair color. Generally, an Alexandrite Laser (755nm) is used for those with fair to mid-toned skin and medium to coarse dark hair. The ND: YAG Laser (1064 nm) is often chosen for darker skin types with coarse hair, while a Diode Laser (800-810 nm) is suitable for fair to mid-toned skin, as well as dark fine hair.

Wellaholic’s SHR Hair Removal: A Diode Laser Approach

At Wellaholic, we utilise Super Hair Removal technology, also known as SHR, which is a type of diode laser hair removal. As a newer technology compared to IPL, SHR was developed by Alma Lasers. It amalgamates 755nm, 808nm, and 1064nm laser wavelengths, making it versatile enough to target all skin types.

Along with simultaneous contact cooling to prevent burns, it ensures a more comfortable treatment experience. Ideal for all skin and hair types, this method causes minimal irritation. With Wellaholic’s SHR Prestige plan, clients can undergo hair reduction treatments on all body parts.

Individual Needs and Professional Consultation

It’s important to recognize that the optimal choice of laser may vary based on individual needs and the clinic providing the service. For this reason, we highly recommend consultations with a qualified healthcare professional or technician. They can guide you towards the most appropriate laser for hair removal, considering your specific skin type and hair color.
