What Is SHR?: Super Hair Removal

When you think of all of the menial tasks that take time and energy from your busy life, what comes to mind? shaving and waxing, for the most part.

According to a 2013 study, women spend an average of 72 days shaving over an entire lifetime! 1,700+ hours are wasted just getting rid of unwanted hair that can be eliminated forever in just a handful of 30-minute sessions. Shaving, waxing, and plucking are rated as the ‘most loathed’ beauty task lists, so it makes sense that laser hair removal is the 2nd most common cosmetic procedure.
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is an innovative laser treatment available with the Harmony XL Pro System by Alma Lasers, which utilizes concentrated light beams to destroy the hair follicles. That means truly removing it from the root. Each pulse of light is an incredibly narrow, specific wave length of energy that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The process gradually heats the melanin and hair follicles with effective heat buildup to destroy the hair for long-lasting results.

How does SHR hair removal work?

By targeting the area under the skin’s surface, your skin is left completely intact and untouched with virtually no visible symptoms. The laser treatment is also paired with an effective air cooling tool on the surface so that your skin feels a little warm and tingly, at most. Unlike other laser treatments and short-term waxing, you won’t experience any superficial burns or pain and there’s no need for numbing or anesthesia.

The Harmony XL Pro uses Alma’s SHR patent for virtually painless hair removal

The hand-piece applicator is kept in constant motion for full coverage and it’s easy to treat large areas of the body quickly. The SHR hair removal treatment is safe for sensitive skin areas and can be used on the face, so you can eliminate unwanted hair on your upper lip, nostrils, and between eyebrows forever. Schedule SHR Hair Removal for your legs, arms, bikini area, or back and you’ll never have to shave or wax again.

How many SHR treatments are required?

Step in for your pain-free procedure and get back to normal life right away. The ‘lunchtime procedure’ can be scheduled any time of year and it’s safe for all skin tones, including tanned skin. After just 6 to 8 sessions*, you will be hair-free forever. Enjoy smooth, soft skin and use your 1,700+ extra razor-free hours for something more meaningful and memorable!
