SHR And Sensitive Skin: Here’s What You Need To Know

Hair removal by itself can be a bothersome and frustrating event for most ladies – but it’s far worse when you sensitive skin.

It doesn’t help that sensitive skin easily reacts to almost everything, i.e., the sun, chemicals and heat – resulting in unpleasant rash breakouts that deters one from feeling their absolute best.

While tweezing and shaving can lead to annoying ingrown hairs, depilatory creams can be too harsh on sensitive skin and waxing is undeniably a painful experience.

Thankfully, there is now Super Hair Removal (SHR) that offers the ideal solution for all skin types, especially those with sensitive skin! Here is why:

What happens during SHR treatment?

Prior to your first treatment session, our specialists would have already consulted you in regards to your specific skin type, as well as address any concerns that you may have – including your suitability for SHR and what you can expect out of your treatment.

Especially for more sensitive areas such as the facial region and Brazilian hair removal, undergoing hair removal at these parts can prove to be even more painful if you have sensitive skin. However, our specialists are well-trained to handle a variety of skin types; tailoring the wavelengths in order to minimize any pain and redness after.

In addition, our SHR machines contain in-motion technology to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience for painless hair removal!

What about the side effects?

The most common side effects of SHR is redness or minor swelling in the treatment area, which typically goes away in a couple of days.

For the ladies with sensitive skin, there are ways to help with the recovery, including limiting your sun exposure, ensuring your skin is moisturized daily, and putting an ice pack to help with the redness and swelling should there be any.

If you are interested in laser treatment for hair removal but can’t stop worrying about the possible side effects, our unique Princess Gel™ can help! Offering a cooling effect when applied on the skin, we have had many customers raving about this gel that also contributes to smoother and fairer skin!

Always remember to do a patch test

If there is one big takeaway from the article, it is this: it is vital to do a patch test prior to starting treatment in order to see how your skin reacts to the laser.

If you are getting it done, make sure to let us know about your skin concerns during your first consultation, as well as request for a patch test before you begin your body hair removal.

The reality is that SHR is the ideal solution for those with sensitive skin, since you won’t have to deal with the pains of shaving regularly, or handle the inconvenient and harsh depilatory creams that can really hurt your delicate skin overtime.

You are in good hands even with sensitive skin when you undergo hair removal. With the extra precautions and right care, there is really nothing to worry about!
