Why don’t Japan IPL Express do SHR?

Why don’t Japan IPL Express do SHR?

One of the most common questions we have received and it’s time to shed some light on this.

Light-based Hair Removal
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Super Hair Removal (SHR) and Laser Hair Removal works on the principle of light/heat energy being absorbed by our hair, and destroying it. These hair removal methods are collectively known as photoepilation.

What is IPL again?
IPL is a blast of light energy that emits multiple wavelengths that hair follicles can absorb.

What is SHR?
ICYDK, SHR is actually IPL in a fancier acronym.

SHR is an application method, i.e. the “gliding” or “in-sweep motion”.

It is not a newer or more advanced hair removal technology, but a different application method that uses lower energy and multiple glides on an area.

Same-same, but Different

Why Shot-by-Shot?
We believe that precision delivers true efficacy.

Administering Shot-by-Shot ensures the hair follicles are targeted accurately, with equal energy.

As compared to In-Sweep Motion (SHR) which glides haphazardly multiple times, in hopes to gradually heat up and damage follicles to achieve the same efficacy as 1 Shot™ .

Moreover, going Shot-by-Shot allows us to use higher range of intensity to target hair follicle effectively. Whereas if we were to use In-Sweep Motion (SHR) with Shot-by-Shot intensity, it’s most likely that burns may occur.

In-Sweep Motion (SHR) is like a bowl of lukewarm porridge, it may fill you up but are you satisfied? You may see some difference, but are you exactly getting the best out of it?

Shot-by-Shot is our way to go.
Though Express is our middle name, we stand by being meticulous. Even if it may take more time to cover a large area, we would rather do that than to quickly end a customer’s session.

We’ve spent the past 10 years honing our craft, we believe that Shot-by-Shot is the way to go. It is about the precision, accuracy and efficacy of what a Shot-by-Shot can fulfil.

This, coupled with our beliefs in “No Packages, No Appointments”, and no hard-selling policy; we strive to commit an authentic experience to each and every one of you.

Precision or Random Hits? You Call The Shots™!
