Skin Rejuvenation FAQs

We use the clinically proven Skinpulse e motion method for skin rejuvenation. Safe, immediate and low impact  with a proven track record we are delighted to offer it for skin treatments.

What skin issues can SHR treat?

SHR can:

  • Treat broken veins and capillaries
  • Reduce redness caused by broken capillaries and Rosacea
  • Eliminate spider veins
  • Treat imperfections from sun damage and photo-ageing age spots
  • Even out skin colour for a more youthful rejuvenated look
  • Decrease fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne

What SHR machine do you use?

We use the Skinpulse e-motion machine. This machine is manufactured by Cosmedico Medical,  a global aesthetic medical device manufacturer with over 45 years’ experience in the development of innovative light therapy devices. This particular machine has been around for about over 10 years now so has a good proven track record to deliver high demand treatments for all skin types with unmatched efficacy and safety.

Research has shown that a slower, but longer heating process is considerably more effective for permanent hair removal and skin rejuvenation, than high short level bursts of energy.  Therefore the SHR is passed over the skin 6-10 times (in motion) using low energy but with a high rate or repetition instead of using the traditional method with single high-energy impulses. Thus, the melanin as well as the tissue of the stem cells is heated with low energy at a slow pace and over a longer period of time (90 seconds) to a comfortable temperature of 45 degrees Celsius.  SHR therefore  stimulates the cells beneath the skin’s surface, and triggers the body’s response to eliminate injured tissues and dead skin cells, and promotes collagen production.  In addition to improving uneven skin colour, sun damage, facial redness (Rosacea), and pigmentation, the heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface, firming and rejuvenating the skin. After a series of SHR treatments skin will appear more luminous, brighter and smoother.

SHR treatments are typically administered in a series of 4-6 treatments performed at intervals of a minimum of 4 weeks. Spreading the treatment over this period provides a gradual improvement of the skin, and preserves the important “no downtime” feature of the program.

Is SHR the same as IPL?

What are the differences between the two? For starters, SHR is much safer and more effective as compared to IPL, due to the less intense heat used to target the hair follicles and or skin tissue.

Despite its effectiveness in targeting melanin, IPL is not advised for those with darker skin tones due to their increased sensitivity to the laser’s heat. Here is where SHR completely outperforms IPL – the treatment works great for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin and tanned skin.

Possible side effects:

Discomfort – a hot sensation may occasionally  last for up to an hour after treatment. A cold compress or ice pack may be used if desired.

Blistering – there is always a slight possibility of developing a crust or blister, this is superficial and does not result in any scarring.

Change of pigment – hypo (lighter) or hyper (darker) pigmentation occurs when there has been exposure to sunlight before or after treatment. This must be avoided 3-4 weeks before and after treatment.

Excessive swelling – immediately after treatment the skin may swell temporarily and should subside within hours but can last up to 7 days.

Fragile skin – the skin at or near the treatment site may become fragile – avoid makeup and do not rub the area.

Bruising – a bruise may appear on the treated area and can last from 5-15 days.
