SHR is Alma Laser’s proprietary hair removal method used in clinics around the world with global brand recognition.
SHR works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue.
A high repetition rate of short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, with virtually no pain.
The sweeping In-motion™ technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while ICE™ tech cools the skin surface – preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually painless, yet highly effective hair removal.
WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING
“The use of SHR in patients with dark skin types may substantially reduce pain or discomfort and minimize severity of blistering, scabbing, crusting and hyper/hyperpigmentation. In addition, little to no prolonged epidermal effects such as redness and inflammation of epidermis, and no downtime before (no topical anesthesia) or after treatment makes the SHR more comfortable and safer than traditional laser systems.”
White Paper by Dr. Tania Meneghel, Renaissance Clinic, São Paulo, Brazil
“SHR is virtually not painful due to the excellent isolation of the thermal effects in the tissue surrounding the follicle. The use of low fluences and relatively short pulses with high repetition frequency, together with a skin surface air cooling, result in a well-tolerated treatment by patients, particularly those with dark phototypes.”
White Paper by Dr. Fernando Urdiales, Miramar Instituto Medico, Málaga, Spain
“Treatment with SHR is considerably less painful than with the Lightsheer. Both diode lasers produced long-term hair reduction in excess of 90%… Rapid pulse, constant motion with the low fluence diode laser represents an advance in safety, efficiency and tolerability of laser hair removal treatment.”
