Discover Multi-Functional SuperLUX for Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation!
SuperLUX is an industry leader in IPL technology that uses rapid low energy light waves to painlessly target and heat hair follicles in half the time of traditional IPL services.
From The Global Beauty Group, SuperLUX offers multifunctional complimentary treatment modes for skin rejuvenation, pigmentation correction, vascular therapy and acne management.
SuperLUX works by delivering rapid successions of low energy pulses onto the skin, gradually heating hair follicles. This allows patients to benefit from swift, painless treatments with no discomfort or downtime.
The intense light wave technology also works to treat skin conditions such as vascular therapy and pigmentation correction. The light disperses hemoglobin in the vessels while fragmenting melanin pigments. The broken-down components are absorbed by the body, treating vascularisation and pigmentation.
The light waves also address acne management by reducing large pores, improving oiliness and controlling break outs.
SuperLUX comes with audio mode skin laxity treatment that utilises radio waves to penetrate the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin, immediately contracting collagen fibers for visible skin tightening. This firms up loose skin, reduces wrinkles and fine lines and smoothens skin texture.
IPL SHR (Super Hair Reduction) FAQs
How is SHR IPL hair reduction different?
SHR technology is a breakthrough innovation in IPL treatments. The difference between IPL SHR and other IPL machines is that SHR scans the treatment area with up to 10 flashes per second. This gradually heats the targeted area for painless hair reduction, instead of high intensity shots that can cause discomfort, experienced with traditional IPL.
Is IPL SHR hair reduction suitable for me?
Treatments are suitable for a wide range of skin types and hair colours. Your clinician will discuss your expected results during your consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on your individual hair type. Most clients require 8-10 sessions to achieve optimum results though hair will reduce and become finer with each treatment. For some, maintenance treatments may be required to achieve a lifetime of smooth skin. This will depend on a range of factors, which your clinician will discuss during consultation.
How long do I have to wait between treatments?
Treatments must be conducted at regular intervals. These vary depending on the area being treated. As an example, the face may be treated at 2-4-week intervals, while the chest, back and legs may be treated every 8 weeks.
What can I expect after my SHR IPL sessions?
Facial hair will take 7-10 days to fall out while body hair may take 2-3 weeks. Individual results will depend on your skin type, hair coarseness and natural growth cycle. Your clinician will be able to provide more information on what you can expect based on your individual situation during your consultation.

How long do IPL treatments take?
Your Intense Pulsed Light treatment takes around the same amount of time as a wax treatment for the same area. The first visit will be around 30 minutes to perform as we need to do a patch test and ask you some questions.
Why do I have to have many IPL treatments for hair reduction?
IPL targets the hair compound called melanin, this give hair the colour (pigmentation). Melanin is most prevalent in hair during the early-anagen phase of hair growth, and hairs in this stage of growth are the ones most responsive to Intense Pulsed Light. Ongoing treatments are needed to catch each hair as it passes through this early-anagen stage of development, that may result due to hormonal fluctuations though out your life-time.
Why are IPL treatments costly?
This simple reason for this is due to the high acquisition cost of machines, maintenance and the materials used during these treatments, are also very costly. However, when you consider the cost of waxing over the years, in addition to the time it takes out of your busy day – the benefits outweigh the initial upfront cost.
Will I have to come back for repeat skin rejuvenation treatments?
In relation to pigmentation – If you have skin that is easily sun-damaged (freckled) and pre-caution is not taken to protect your skin, by using sunscreen daily, in addition to a Vitamin c Serum to inhibit melanin from developing, it is likely you will need “top-up” treatments.
In relation to vascular lesions – It will depend what the trigger was. In some cases, you may only require a few treatments and no follow up, on the other hand, skin conditions such as Rosacea, will need on-going maintenance and home care for the best possible results.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Generally any part of the body can be treated. Exceptions include areas in close proximity to the eyes, the inner ear and nose.
The most popular areas for hair removal are the underarms, bikini, upper lip, chin, face, legs, back & chest.
The most popular areas for skin treatments are the face, arms, hands, décolletage and legs.
