ELight/SHR Hair Removal

From 20€ (VAT included)

Our hair removal treatments are carried with two different technologies, E-Light and SHR, for maximum results.

E-Light is a technology combining Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with Radio Frequency (RF) and outer skin cooling which minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

Using E-Light hair loss can be seen even after the very first session.

The treatment acts on the hairs that are currently in the growth phase, which will typically fall out in the days to weeks following treatment. Other hairs not in the growth stage continue to grow normally, but will be affected on subsequent sessions. Eventually, after a number of treatments, there will be no more visible hairs remaining

An important advantage that E-LIGHT hair removal technology has over traditional laser is that it is the only method that is effective for blond, brown and dark hair. Suitable for All skin types.

SHR (Super Hair Removal) is the latest technology in laser hair removal. SHR treats all hair type, colour and skin type. It is virtually pain free.

As for all methods of permanent hair removal, SHR works by killing the hair growth from an individual follicle. However, certain hormonal changes, medication, disorders can stimulate new follicles to grow. A hair follicle successfully treated by SHR will never grow hair again as SHR destroys stem cells.

This technology is considered the best hair removal treatment to date.

Hair removal treatments required for a normal hair growth approx. 8 treatments.

Treatment interval:

  • Face 3-4 weeks
  • Body 4-6 weeks

 

A full consultation is required for Laser/E-light/SHR treatment - patch test required.
