ALL ABOUT BODY HAIR
Hair grows in different phases mostly evenly spaced. There are three phases of growth: the growth phase, the transition phase and the rest phase. Since the hair must be in contact with the hair root for successful treatment, only hairs that are currently in the growth phase are suitable for treatment.
Via the hair's pigment, melanin, the light impulses are transmitted to the hair root and the hair's nutrients, e.g. proteins, are attacked, damaged and thus permanently removed. This leads to the permanent removal of the treated hair during the growth phase.
THE HEARTY IPL METHOD
In classic permanent hair removal (IPL), short individual pulses with a very high energy density are emitted. The hair follicle absorbs the entire energy, is briefly heated to 70 degrees and thus destroyed. The energy reaches the hair root exclusively via the melanin.
Since the skin and also red blood vessels also contain melanin, they also absorb the energy, which is actually not desired.
Therefore, the treatment with IPL is often perceived as painful and unpleasant, there is a risk of undesirable side effects.
THE NEW SHR METHOD
With the new SHR technology, the experience of laser technology is combined with the advantages of the pulsed light method. Instead of single pulses with high energy, the SHR technology delivers multiple pulses with relatively low individual pulse energy. It also combines two different modes of action in parallel for the destruction of hair follicles.
The energy is conducted on the one hand via the melanin contained in the hair and on the other hand via the skin to the stem cells of the hair. In addition, the treatment is carried out using the "in motion" method. The tissue is treated with low energy but a high repetition rate (6-10x). The energy is conducted to the hair follicle via the melanin as well as via the skin.
Furthermore, in addition to the melanin-containing hair root, the protein of the stem cells is also heated and thus the blood supply to the root is disturbed, which eventually leads to hair loss and non-regeneration. Lighter and finer hairs can now also be removed more successfully or sun-tanned skin can also be treated.
The stem cells are slowly exposed to a low energy of up to 45 degrees Celsius over a longer period of time. The built-in contact cooling (water tank and sapphire handpiece integrated in the device) ensures effective cooling of the top layer of skin during the treatment. Today it is known that the slow and long-lasting heating leads to a significantly better and permanent hair removal without unnecessary stress on the skin.
WHAT ElSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Per treatment, 6-10 passes are recommended, the handpiece is moved vertically and horizontally (in serpentine lines) over the treatment area under light pressure. Due to the high repetition rate (several pulses per minute), the hair follicle is heated slowly and steadily. One should not go to the solarium 1-2 days before a treatment and apply a high sun protection factor when staying in the sun in order to preserve the protective layer of the skin.
The hair should not be plucked, grown or epilated from six weeks before the treatment. This ensures that a large number of hairs are in the active growth phase (the anagen phase) and thus an optimal amount of hair can be permanently removed during the treatment.
In each case, 20 to a maximum of 70% of the hair is in the anagen phase at the same time. This depends on the person to be treated and the respective body region. With SHR technology, hair can also be treated in the telogen phase. In this phase, the stem cells are geared towards growth. In the other phases (transitional and resting phase) the hair within the hair root pushes itself upwards, the root can only be partially destroyed and is therefore capable of regeneration. Between the treatments, you should also not remove the hair with epilation.
The duration of the treatment for permanent hair removal with SHR depends on the size of the area to be treated. The time required varies from 10-15 minutes for a smaller treatment area to 1 hour for a treatment of the entire legs.
AFTER TREATMENT WITH SHR.
The natural sun protection of the skin is greatly reduced after the intensive light treatment. The client should therefore apply a high sun protection factor when going out in the sun (at least SPF 30) for some time after the treatment in order not to put additional stress on the skin! The hair does not fall out immediately after a treatment for permanent hair removal, but usually only after approx. 2 - 3 weeks. Since everyone reacts differently, it is also possible that the hair will fall out at a later time.
Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others and in some cases the skin may become red. This redness usually disappears after a few hours, sometimes more quickly, but can also have the intensity of a sunburn and remain for a few days.
Experience shows that approx. 6 - 10 treatments at intervals of approx. 4 - 6 weeks are necessary to achieve the desired result. It is recommended to carry out the treatment in intervals of 4,5,6,4,5,6 weeks in order to cover all possible growth phases of the hair. However, the number and the result of the treatments always depend on the hair and skin type.
Due to the individual condition of the person being treated, it cannot be avoided that the results may vary. Very fine, light as well as grey hairs are very difficult to get rid of and need significantly more treatments.
CAREFUL OF "CHEAP OFFERS"
Attention: There are countless private/cosmetic studios that offer SHR hair removal treatments. The prices are also very different. Often, however, cheap devices/copies are used for hair removal that have not been properly tested by the manufacturers in Asia and also only provide a fraction of the performance that a professional device can provide.
In addition, the settings are often not individually adjustable and the beautician works with default settings that are not adapted to the skin type. Since the devices can only emit a certain number of flashes, in many cases the flash frequency is set very low for cost reasons and the regions to be treated are not sufficiently flashed. Thus, not all hairs in the growth phase are reached, which leads to a longer session duration.
We work with the very high-quality IE-15. It has an output power of up to 2000V. The settings (frequency, pulse width and energy Joule/cm ) can be individually adjusted and adapted to the skin type. A sapphire glass in the handpiece ensures optimal cooling. In addition, a water cooling system is built in to ensure continuous cooling during the treatment. The machine is a high-performance device that guarantees absolutely optimal results.
SHR treatment is carried out at your own risk. The liability of Fünf GmbH and vicarious agents is limited to intent and gross negligence. Withdrawal from a subscription or refund of treatment costs is not possible.
