Permanent hair removal: from IPL devices to SHR diode lasers
Permanent hair removal is a cosmetic, apparative procedure that permanently removes unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, armpits, back and other areas of the body. It is an increasingly popular solution for those who have to put up with the daily hassle of waxing and shaving. The most common techniques for permanent hair removal are light & laser treatments.
Light treatments mainly include the IPL method. IPL is the abbreviation for “intense pulsed light”. In this procedure, individual light pulses with very high energy are applied to the skin area to be treated. The hair melanin, i.e. the dye, has the task of transferring the light energy to the hair papilla and destroying it. The darker the hair, the higher the melanin content and the more effective the permanent hair removal.
Conversely, this means that IPL hair removal is not very effective for lighter hair colors. In this context, it is also important to consider the respective skin type or skin color. This is because the high light energy can also inadvertently focus on the skin’s melanin. In other words, if the skin is darker than the hair, then there is a risk of skin injuries or burns. Thus, IPL devices are not suitable for every type of client.
Based on these findings, the laser or diode laser technology for permanent hair removal was developed. In this procedure, multiple laser pulses per second at lower single-pulse energy are glidingly applied to the skin (SHR). This is the great advantage that the energy is not only directed to the melanin in the hair (and thus all hair colors and skin types can be treated), but through the SHR multi-pulse gliding procedure a moderate subcutaneous heating is generated, as a result of which the proteins at the hair roots are destroyed. Further hair growth is henceforth excluded.

Things to know about Permanent SHR Diode Laser Hair Removal
For whom is permanent hair removal suitable?
Permanent SHR diode laser hair removal is suitable for anyone who wants to permanently eliminate annoying hair growth. Thanks to the latest hair removal technologies, especially by means of SHR laser or SHR diode laser, all skin types and hair colors can now be treated. Thus, permanent hair removal of the present is possible without restrictions for both women and men. However, the person concerned should be at least of age to ensure that there are no (pubertal) hormonal changes at the time of treatment that could affect the treatment outcome.
What are the notable methods and technologies for permanent hair removal in general?
A distinction is made between IPL devices and SHR lasers or SHR diode lasers for permanent hair removal. Although electro-epilation procedures are also accessible on the market, IPL devices and laser technology as their successor have proven to be the most sustainable in recent decades.
SHR diode laser hair removal uses special wavelengths of high-frequency light that are sent specifically to the hair roots. Alexandrite, diode or Nd:YAG lasers (now also combined as triple technology, known as 3-wavelength SHR lasers or 3D hair removal lasers) are the most commonly used and ensure permanent removal of unwanted hairs by converting energy into heat, which obliterates the follicle and thus leads to the death of the hair. A renewed formation of the hair root is usually no longer possible afterwards. With only a few days after the laser treatment, the treated hairs fall out and henceforth also do not grow back – a long-term success without pain or skin irritation with professional application.
This method is particularly suitable for the painless treatment of sensitive areas of the body, such as parts of the face, as well as many other areas of the body.
However, to achieve a completely hairless result, it takes about four to eight sessions within a period of one month between each treatment session to ensure best results.
Unlike the SHR diode laser method, which emits a single, focused wavelength (or in the case of 3-wavelength diode lasers, three focused, bundled wavelengths) at a high concentration, IPL permanent hair removal devices use a high-energy flash lamp over a broad, unfocused wavelength spectrum of the xenon light source.
Unfortunately, this method is not suitable for people with light or gray hair; only with dark hairs and light skin color good results can be expected. In addition, this method is quite painful, as it uses single pulses of light at high energy.
The user selects suitable parameters such as wavelength, energy density and pulse duration/sequence individually for each patient according to their skin/hair condition – therefore an expert should always be consulted.
Laser hair removal devices for home - Does it make sense?
In a nutshell: No. If you want a really permanent hair removal, you should definitely visit a professional hair removal studio that also works with a high-quality and powerful device – ideally with a SHR laser or diode laser. Because in order to achieve success in permanent hair removal, the correct fine-tuning of the hair removal device in relation to the respective customer is essential. In the case of self-application in one’s own four walls by a layman, the tuning to one’s own skin & hair types, logically, cannot be carried out in a targeted manner.
In addition, in the field of permanent hair removal, it is equally important that the device used meets certain performance standards, so that targeted heating of the hair follicles or subcutaneous tissue can be ensured. Due to the size of certain technical components, such as the energy generator or even the cooling system, promising hair removal lasers cannot be designed as a small handheld device – like the majority of home devices.
Will I receive training at WELLCOTEC when I purchase an SHR diode laser?
Yes, we will train you intensively in theory and practice when you buy or lease a SHR diode laser. Because it is of course our concern that you can work professionally and purposefully with our hair removal device – also in the sense of your customers. The training can take place at your site, at our site or partly online. Your entire team can participate in the laser training. We have been training in permanent hair removal for over 20 years.
Does WELLCOTEC also offer NiSV training for the SHR diode lasers in the area of "optical radiation"?
As a distributor of apparative cosmetics or SHR diode lasers, we are prohibited by law from offering NiSV training courses for them for reasons of unfair competition and lack of (device) neutrality. Therefore, in the interest of our customers, we have endeavored to enter into an intensive cooperation with BAGA, the largest and most professional provider of NiSV training in Germany. Thus, our customers have the opportunity to book discounted NiSV training courses through us at BAGA on the one hand, and on the other hand we offer interesting and financially lucrative NiSV equipment packages for the specialist module “Optical Radiation”.
Can I lease or finance the SHR diode lasers from WELLCOTEC?
Through our various financing & leasing partners, you can conveniently pay off our SHR diode lasers in monthly installments at the most favorable conditions. Installment payments can be made without a down payment and for various terms, from 36 to 60 months. Upon request, we will be happy to provide you with a free and non-binding leasing & financing offer.
