SHR stands for Super Hair Removal. It’s a huge step forward in permanent hair reduction and is the most advanced way of removing unwanted hair. SHR is faster than traditional IPL and Laser, it’s safer and its pain free in comparison.


SHR is a revolutionary approach. Rather than bombarding your skin with high amounts of Joules (energy), SHR fires multiple shots but at low Joules. This gently heats the hair follicle to the heat needed and the most you will feel is warmth and a tingling sensation. SHR also utilises In-Motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion on the skin.


SHR is suitable for all skin types, even tanners, this is achievable because of the technology and techniques utilised. Unlike traditional Laser and IPL, SHR can be had all year round without having to hide from the sun.

New Technology Ideal for LIGHTER and WHITE HAIR


To fully treat the area you may require 6-10 treatments at four week intervals. A four week regime is important to maintain so that the SHR treatments get the hair at its four week re-growth. Near the end of the treatments, 6-8 week intervals will be needed to finish off your course.


Absolutely pain free, this is achieved by SHR technology and In-Motion techniques, to give pain free treatment for body hair removal.

Further Information

The benefit of IPL hair reduction (as opposed to waxing) is that you’re working towards a seriously decreased growth of hair. Depending on your skin colour and hair colour will depend on your result! Therefore results are extremely individual and this is why a full consultation is required, we at Petries Cottage can actually give you an estimate of the result in the consultation.

Also cost!! Even though the initial outlay of cost for IPL hair removal will seem quite a lot. Compared to on-going waxing cost, it is actually more cost effective than waxing!

Hair removal with IPL or laser uses heat from light rays to target hair roots, incapacitating it from ever growing again. Depending on the growth phase of the hair follicle, only approximately ten percent of the hair is successfully disabled each time. This is the reason why multiple sessions are required to achieve an acceptable level of hair removal. Most clients will see results after 6 – 8 treatments on the proviso that treatment appointments are strictly adhered to. This is intended to capture as many hairs as possible during its growth phase.

Other factors affecting the number of treatment sessions required are the area being treated, skin type, hair colour, age, gender, hormones and metabolism. Medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) will experience poor result and clients should consult their doctors before undergoing hair reduction treatments. This is due to hirsuitism which is excessive hair growth on the face due to hormone disruption; a symptom of PCOS.

While there is some immediate hair loss, the more common result is for hair to continue falling out over the next two to three weeks. Over the course of the six or seven treatment sessions, clients can achieve a significant amount of hair reduction in the treatment area. Subsequent maintenance treatments are only required once every six to twelve months.

With SHR technology only a slight warmth is felt during this quick treatment. You have to feel it to believe it.

Do you suffer from or have had HORRIBLE shaving rashes, ingrowns and excrutiating waxing experiences, this is amazing, hair reduction from your first treatment, minimal discomfort and virtually painless. I will never wax again!
