With so many choices out in the market, narrowing down the option that best suits your needs can be hard. To help you in your decision, we have compiled a list of hair removal methods that might just do wonders for you!
Shaving is a classic option that many women can do in the comfort of their own homes. All you need is a razor with fresh, clean blades, warm water, and a quality lubricant. Some popular options for lubrication include shaving cream, coconut oil, or even conditioner for a smooth, friction-free experience and moisturising properties.
While shaving can be done quickly at home on almost all parts of your body, you may risk getting razor burns. Razor burns are temporary but often cause great discomfort. The affected area of your skin may also feel itchy with a warm burning sensation. And when it isn’t done properly, it can result in pesky ingrown hairs.
For those who wish to remove their hair without worrying about potential discomfort and a shoddy job at hard-to-reach areas like the back and pubic area, you can consider other hair removal methods.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL hair removal has been increasingly popular among women who wish to remove their hair safely with longer-lasting results. A flashgun is used to deliver multiple wavelengths of extremely concentrated light rays to target the area of hair removal. After multiple sessions, the hair follicles are destroyed and regrowth is minimal.
IPL hair removal can be done on almost all parts of the body. From the upper lip and chin to even your feet and toes, IPL treatment is an effective way to remove hair in even the most unexpected places. However, the intense light rays increase the risk of getting burns, so always ensure you get it done with an experienced professional. Those with darker skin tones may also find themselves unsuitable for IPL hair removal treatment.
Super Hair Removal (SHR)
If you have tanned skin or a lower pain tolerance, you may still be apprehensive about trying IPL hair removal. Fret not, as there is a similar alternative that may deliver even better results! Like IPL, SHR is a form of semi-permanent laser hair removal that uses concentrated light to destroy hair follicles.
However, SHR is an even better option than IPL hair removal, since it uses technology low energy but high-frequency light to directly target hair follicles. Hence, it is much gentler and more efficient than IPL.
IPL also struggles to distinguish between dark hair follicles and melanin pigments. Therefore, if you are a tanner customer, you may experience more discomfort during IPL than your fairer counterparts. That being said, SHR laser treatment is a gentler and more efficient method of laser hair removal that can be customised according to your exact needs and preferences.
In comparison to IPL hair removal, SHR is the smarter and more superior technology that will reduce discomfort and maximise your results from each session. Underarm and Brazilian hair removal has never been easier with the development of SHR!
With plenty of benefits to shout at, SHR treatment is one of the best hair removal methods in the market right now. It is one of the most popular methods for painless hair removal, so if IPL hair removal hasn’t been working for you, consider signing up for a trial session with us to experience the benefits for yourself!
