Pain Free Hair Removal.
ARIA’s CW-diode technology ensures homogeneous distribution of energy across the entire pulse. The uniformity of the delivered energy leads to better clinical results, milder discomfort and little or no skin damage. The SHR mode protects the epidermis and no analgesics are required.
What makes ARIA SHR the choice in hair removal?
ARIA SHR defies conventional technology by using low peak power, high average power, higher repetition rate and multi-passes to remove the hair through homogenous heating of the area surrounding the hair and the hair. The ARIA SHR provides effective hair removal because it safely and gently heats the dermis to a temperature that damages the hair follicle and prevents re-growth. The SHR protects the epidermis, and no analgesics are required. ARIA SHR works in motion, with a sweeping technique that eliminates a common problem of missed or skipped spots. The comprehensive coverage means smooth legs, arms, backs and stomachs without the pain.
How often do I come in for treatment?
We recommend waiting 6-8 weeks in between treatments until your desired result is achieved.
Can I expect fewer sessions than if I opt for IPL?
Yes with AFT laser treatment, we start with an average of 6 sessions unlike IPL treatment which requires an average of 8-10 sessions. This means clients who undergo AFT as a means of permanent hair removal will save a lot of time.
Hair Removal in Motion.
The ARIA SHR utilizes a series of low fluence, high repetition pulses to increase the temperature of both the hair follicle, and the surrounding, nourishing tissue to 45° C. This more gradual, in-motion heat delivery uses the chromophores in the surrounding tissue as reservoirs to effectively heat up the hair follicle. This, along with the heat energy absorbed directly by the hair follicle, damages the follicle and prevents re-growth. The SHR mode protects the skin and provides a virtually painless treatment.
What does AFT Hair Removal feel like?
Unlike the rubber band snap of conventional IPL and lasers, the ARIA SHR is pain free.
How long does the treatment take?
The AFT system is able to treat areas of the body at a much faster rate than most lasers – cutting treatment time in half. Hair removal of the lip can take as little as 30 seconds whereas a treatment on your full legs will take up to 30 minutes. It depends on the area of the body being treated.
What areas can be treated with AFT?
All areas of the body may be treated but we stay away from the eye area. Requests for lower legs, underarms, the bikini line, upper lip and the Brazilian are always very popular.
