So what is SHR? (Super Hair Removal) with In-Motion Technology?
It's not like traditional IPL hair removal - it's faster, more efficient and produces better results. Using a patented diode laser technology, SHR permanently destroys hair follicles by using low fluence, repetitive light pulses, targeting the susceptible hair follicles.
Compared to IPL and laser light-based hair removal systems, which fire around 2-4 high powered shots into each hair follicle, the SHR fires a minimum of 20-30 shots into each follicle. This can be described as the difference between the speed of an automatic machine gun using SHR, to a single rifle shot using traditional IPL.
This new technology progressively heats the deeper layers of the skin where the hair follicle is growing, while keeping the skin surface cool using Crystal Contact cooling.
The In-Motion technology means that the whole area is covered as the applicator 'sweeps' over the treated area several times, ensuring that nothing is missed, unlike traditional IPL treatments. The applicator stays in constant contact with the skin rather than lifting off after every flash, which means faster and more accurate treatments.
The latest and most complete treatment system for successful and permanent results is now available at our clinics. Using a powerful combination of the most up to date technologies, we can improve your figure and face like never before.
Until quite recently, the only way to permanently remove stubborn fat and cellulite was by surgical methods, leading to bruising, swelling,
having to wear special garments post-operatively, and a longer recovery time.
We are delighted to introduce our 4D treatment system.
What is the 4D treatment system?
It's a powerful 4 dimensional alternative to liposuction. The 4D is an advanced treatment combination, targeting fat reduction, cellulite elimination and skin tightening.
How does the 4D work?
4D combines the latest technology, ultrasound cavitation - which is widely recognised as one of the most effective cellulite reduction and localised fat loss techniques available - with radio frequency, Laser lipolysis, and vacuum therapy. This powerful combination is proven to break down stubborn fat and cellulite quickly, and eliminate it from the body to produce permanent results.
Why is 4D combined technology better than other non invasive treatments?
Ultrasound cavitation, which we have been working with in our clinics for a number of years, is widely recognised as a highly effective method for permanent fat and cellulite reduction without surgery. Research now shows that when ultrasound cavitation is combined with radio frequency and Laser lipolysis with vacuum therapy, the ultimate body sculpting and lifting results are achieved.
What if I have loose skin but don't want to lose weight?
With the 4D system, that's not a problem. We can apply radio frequency without any of the other technologies, to ensure you get lifting and tightening of your skin without fat loss.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on what you want to achieve; everyone has different requirements, therefore we will prescribe a personal treatment plan that is tailored for you. A series of treatments - around six - will usually be required to achieve the desired results. Our practitioner will advise you on the best treatment programme for you following a thorough consultation and assessment.
How often will I have a treatment?
Treatments are spaced at weekly intervals for best results
Do I need to exercise or diet during my course?
It's not necessary to exercise to burn off broken down fat with the 4D system, however, we always advise clients to lead an active lifestyle for good health. Clients are advised to drink plenty of water, reduce alcohol, sugar and processed foods, and adopt a healhier eating plan during the treatment course to maximise results.
