Frequently Asked Questions


SHR treatment can be performed on all skin types. The SHR technology of low energy pulses allows for the successful treatment in both dark and fair skin types alike, even tanned skin.

For SHR to be successful, at least 6 sessions is needed. However, the number of sessions vary across individuals and may be less or more. Our experts will discuss this with you during the consultation, after assessing the areas of concern.

While SHR is said to offer permanent hair reduction by destroying the hair follicles, it is not uncommon for some clients to experience hair regrowth post-treatment (usually after 2 – 3 years) that may occur due to body, hair cycle and hormonal changes. Hence, we strongly recommend our clients to come back for touch-up sessions in order to maintain their results.

In order for the treatment to be as successful, here are some steps you can take to prepare for it:

  • Please ensure the area to be treated is free from ALL topical solutions

  • Shaving is required 2-12 hours prior – any sooner can result in heightened sensitivity during the process

  • Avoid exposure to the sun for a minimum of three days before treatment

  • Cease use of tanning creams two weeks before treatment

  • Avoid bleaching, plucking, waxing, epilation and any other forms of hair removal for 4 weeks prior

  • Do not use essential oils 48 hours prior

  • Depilatory creams should be avoided 1 week before treatment commences

  • Cold sore medication can be taken five days before and five days after treatment

  • Should you be on antibiotics it is recommended to leave a two week gap between taking them and starting treatment
