Laser hair removal is effective for people of all skin types. It typically takes multiple laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments shall be needed thereafter.
While shaving and waxing are both popular hair removal methods, the biggest difference with laser hair removal is that it can reduce hair permanently from the body.
The effectiveness of the treatment depends upon several factors:
- Skin colour
- Hair colour
- Hair thickness
- Depth of the hair in the skin
Alma Laser’s Super Hair Removal (SHR) technology is the world’s most popular and widely used method of laser hair removal.
As one of the best selling systems for hair removal, Harmony Lite is on a new platform for aesthetic treatments. Providing multiple cosmetic solutions including the most popular SHR (super hair removal) technology.
SHR (super hair removal) is the only clinically proven method of laser and AFT hair removal that causes virtually no pain. SHR works by gradually heating the skin to a temperature that effectively suppresses the hair follicle and prevents re-growth, while not injuring surrounding tissue.
The sweeping In-Motion technique of moving the handpiece repeatedly over the treatment area virtually eliminates pain. Patients show up for a quick treatment, and are back out the door within a few minutes.
All hair and Skin types
By not exposing the hair root to a single high-energy pulse, SHR doesn’t cause trauma on dark skin, making it the safest laser hair removal option for dark skinned individuals.
SHR has been proven in multiple clinical studies as the safest method of laser hair removal for all skin and hair types; as the melanin in dark skin types is exponentially more sensitive to the heat in laser treatment.
Hair follicles are damaged not by a single high-energy pulse, but by repetitive application of low fluence pulses - removing the sensation of pain.
Furthermore, the individual pulses do not cause any burning to the skin, as it is the multiple pulses that raise the temperature of the skin to the level needed to prevent hair growth.

" The use of SHR in patients with dark skin types may substantially reduce pain or discomfort and minimize severity of blistering, scabbing, crusting and hypo/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 long pulses with high repetition frequency, together with a skin surface aircooling, results 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."
