  • SHR uses low-energy light pulses to gradually heat up and damage hair follicles, preventing future growth
  • The laser applicator glides across my skin, delivering rapid light pulses around 180 times per minute
  • This light energy targets and gets absorbed by the hair’s pigment (melanin), converting into heat
  • The gentle heat build-up damages the stem cells in the follicle that supply nutrients to the hair root
  • Without nutrients, the hair root shrivels up and can no longer grow new hair strands

Wellaholic’s Professional Observations (with our Customers)

In our personal experience with customers at Wellaholic, we have observed a few interesting points about SHR hair removal.

Firstly, many of our clients are surprised by how comfortable and painless the treatment is compared to other hair removal methods they’ve tried. The gentle heating sensation of SHR is a welcome change from the sharp, stinging pain often associated with waxing or traditional laser treatments. This has made SHR a popular choice, especially for those with lower pain tolerance or sensitive skin.

Secondly, we’ve noticed that consistency is key when it comes to achieving the best results with SHR. Clients who commit to regular treatment sessions as recommended by our aestheticians tend to see faster and more significant hair reduction. It’s important to understand that SHR is a gradual process, and while some may see results after just a few sessions, others may require more treatments to reach their desired outcome.

Lastly, we’ve found that our clients appreciate the versatility of SHR in treating various areas of the body. From smaller, delicate areas like the face and underarms to larger regions like the back and legs, SHR has proven effective in reducing hair growth. This has made it a go-to treatment for those looking for a comprehensive hair removal solution.
