A Study in Decreasing Pain, Laser Hair Removal

Chances are, anyone looking for IPL or laser hair removal does a bit of homework on the subject. Correct? It may be challenging, however, to separate fact from fiction when gathering IPL and laser hair removal information. Some hair removal providers may tell you, for example, that all IPL and hair removal lasers feel the same to clients and that they all pretty much make people cry. Look, we know that pain is subjective and that some folks have higher pain tolerances than others. We also know that the facts are a result of scientific studies conducted under controlled circumstances.

Dr. Chris Zachary recently presented the findings of one such study. He compared the virtually painless laser hair removal technology from Alma Lasers against another hair removal laser.

Here’s what he had to say:

At Spectrum when it comes to IPL machines and hair removal machines, we are passionate to the point of being obsessed. We are even more passionate about the clinics results and end-users treatment.

The latest technology uses low fluence which heats the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. This technology is called Super Hair Removal (SHR).

Super Hair Removal (SHR)

SHR is a unique technology that gently heats the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. A high repetition rate of short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, with virtually no pain. The in-motion technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while the cooling system cools the skin surface preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually painless, yet highly effective hair removal.

Most conventional laser hair removal technologies utilize massive amounts of heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent reduction. SHR, on the other hand, is a unique technology that delivers low heat levels at a fast delivery. By utilizing low heat, SHR decreases the pain and minimizes the risk of side effects. Best of all, the high speed of SHR delivery creates a short treatment; 5 to 15 minutes on a small body part and 20 to 30 minutes on the average man’s back.

Spectrum have introduced two new machines into the Australian Market that utilise SHR technologies:

 

Alma Beauty Remove:

The combination of Alma’s 810 nm diode laser with patented SHR technology makes Remove the safest, most reliable and most effective laser hair removal solution available today. Aestheticians are now able to treat all skin tones and the widest range of hair types, 365 days a year.

 

Alma Beauty Rejuve:

Provides a wide range of treatments for face and body. Treatments are suitable for all skin types (I-VI) and are completely safe for thin and delicate areas. Treatments include vascular and pigmented lesions, pore size reduction, tightening and contouring, permanent hair reduction.

The World of Laser Hair Removal and IPL Machines

Laser hair removal machines and IPL machines – what makes one different from the other? Even more important, what makes one better for consumers than others? It’s a topic we think about all the time. We’re passionate about laser hair removal machines and IPL machines. That said, we know there’s a lot of machines on the market. Laser hair removal has grown in popularity and is offered all over the world, after all.

But let’s face it, not all laser hair removal machines are created equal! Some provide the laser client with a number of advantages. Contact cooling, for example, can protect the skin during treatment. In addition to this important protection, it can help to create a more tolerable treatment.

With Spectrum’s technology the client’s comfort is a top priority. We’re proud to offer contact cooling as part of patented technologies on offer. There’s more to it than that, of course. The laser hair removal machines that provide virtually Pain-Free employ contact cooling plus innovative technology to create the virtually painless laser hair removal experience. It’s this combination of technology and patient concerns that makes people say, “…It’s like a hot stone massage.”

Remember, you can find laser hair removal machines anywhere, but you can’t find Spectrum machines just anywhere.

Laser Hair Removal, What Consumers Say

Many places offer laser hair removal. However, only those with equipment including Spectrum and Alma Lasers offer virtually painless laser hair removal. Recently a member of Alma’s marketing team attended a customer’s open house. Awesome feedback was received.

One client had this to say about her laser hair removal treatment:

“I had laser hair removal done and it was the best thing ever. I did not feel any pain! That is what is so surprising to me. I thought it would hurt but it didn’t! It was worth it! I’ll never have to shave again. I used to shave everyday and the hair was still never completely gone! This procedure has completely changed my life and I will recommend it to my closest friends.”

It’s such a great review; we couldn’t help but share it. Will virtually painless laser hair removal completely change your life? It depends. One thing is for sure, though. If you want to experience old fashioned hair removal lasers that can hurt, sting and bring tears to your eyes, go anywhere. If you want to experience Pain-Free laser hair removal find an authorised provider with a laser from Spectrum and Alma Lasers.
