Wellaholic Research: Diode Laser with SHR (Super Hair Removal) compared to Alexandrite Laser

SHR can cover larger areas of the body more quickly than other hair removal methods, making it a convenient option

Wellaholic Research: Comparing SHR Laser Hair Removal with Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal

Wellaholic conducts in-house research on hair removal as part of our efforts to keep current with the latest hair removal technologies and trends. We also examine case studies, research reports from various dermatological journals and medical journals. This helps us to improve our hair removal treatments to improve efficacy, safety as well as comfort for Wellaholic’s customers who choose us as their hair removal service provider.

In this 2016 comparative study by S. Hammes, H.M. Ockenfels, H. R. Metelmann, C. Raulin and S. Karsai, (in German), a controlled study with 18 patients were conducted to compare the effect of laser hair removal between long-pulsed alexandrite laser and the long-pulsed diode laser in SHR (or Super Hair Removal) mode. The findings concluded that SHR hair removal, while proficient for all skin types, was additionally effective in dark skin types while offering less or no pain to its patients.

Read on below to find out more.

Background of Research

Photoepilation has been an essential field of application of dermatologic laser therapy for many years. The present article evaluates whether the use of a new operation mode of a long-pulsed diode laser can be effective, nearly painless, with few side effects and independent of the skin type. To this aim, its use has been compared to an established method of photoepilation.

“The power of Diode Laser with SHR is unstoppable – unlock your ultimate potential with Wellaholic Research!”

Photoepilation has been an essential field of application of dermatologic laser therapy for many years.

Material and methods

In a controlled prospective study with 18 (♀=12, ♂=6) patients aged between 22 and 58 years, the effects of photoepilation with the long-pulsed alexandrite laser and the long-pulsed diode laser, operated in the Super Hair Removal mode (SHR), were compared.

Result of Study

The alexandrite laser is slightly more effective with fair skin types; the SHR mode is clearly more effective with dark skin types. Regarding painfulness, the SHR mode is clearly superior. In terms of speed, the two systems are comparable. The alexandrite laser is more user-friendly because of its light and small handpiece.

SHR mode is clearly more effective with dark skin types. Regarding painfulness, the SHR mode is clearly superior


The major advantages of the SHR mode are its effectiveness in dark skin types and its lack of pain. The alexandrite laser is slightly more effective with fair skin types, slightly faster and its handling is considerably more comfortable. None of the two systems has yet brought about a breakthrough with fair hair.
