Here at The Buff Day Spa, we strive to use only the finest products and technology! We will only introduce a new treatment or product brand that we love and know will deliver much sought after results for our clients. This is why we are so excited to introduce the first machine of its kind in Ireland from Cosmedico, delivering Super Hair Removal and Super Skin Rejuvenation!
SHR stands for Super Hair Removal, the latest technology in Permanent Hair Removal that gives you PAIN FREE Hair Removal which is truly unique!
Super Hair Removal can effectively treat ALL skin types, even tanned skin! SHR treats ALL hair types!
SHR technology combines IPL technology with pulsating light which allows us to achieve Pain Free Permanent Hair Removal. Super Hair Removal gives you pain free treatments compared to traditional Laser & IPL while also giving superior results and being gentler on your skin! Because SHR works differently than traditional laser or IPL machines, this technology is gentler to the skin which means we can treat all skin colours!
Super Hair Removal is proven to effectively treat:
- ALL Skin Types and Ethnicities
- Tanned Skin
- All Hair Types
- Blonde Hair
All Skin Types, All Hair Types
SHR uses new technology that gradually heats the skin until the required level of heat/energy is delivered directly to the hair follicle, all without causing trauma to skin that contains high pigment count or dark skin types! This unique method also allows for increased treatment results in fair skin and blonde hair.
The unique way that SHR affects the melanin directly in the hair follicle allows for treatments at any time of year – even on naturally tanned skin! SHR is truly unique in this capability! (Fake Tan must not be applied to the skin 2 weeks prior to SHR treatment).
Imagine never having to wax, shave or pluck again, never having to deal with stubble, re-growth, ingrown hairs or razor rash! Call us on 01-6774624 to book your free consultation today.

Q & A
What is the difference between Laser and IPL hair removal to Super Hair Removal?
Both laser and IPL use high amounts of energy in short bursts, sending a large amount of heat into the skin to target the melanin in the hair. Research has shown that a slower but longer heating process is considerably more effective for permanent hair removal than high but short levels of energy into the skin.
By using SHR technology to heat the area more slowly but for longer, we target the hair melanin as well as the tissue of the stem cells giving permanent hair removal and the successful treatment of blonde hair. An optimal intensity for treatment can be achieved as the same area is treated multiple times with low energy impulses. The treatment is more comfortable and the skin better protected than with conventional hair removal methods.
How are different hair and skin colours affected?
Super Hair Removal is unique that it can treat ALL skin types! ALL hair colours can be treated with results proven even on blonde hair!
How many treatments are necessary?
As standard, we recommend a course of 6 to begin with as this is adequate for many but other people may require 8 treatments. It is rare to require more but maintenance sessions will also be required in order to treat new hair growth.
How long does each treatment take?
Each treatment time would vary depending on the area you are having treated. However, a standard guide would be that it takes the same time to treat an area with Super Hair Removal as it would take for you to get the area waxed meaning it is very quick and handy to get done on your lunch break or after work.
What do you feel during the treatment?
Treatment with SHR is practically pain free compared to conventional permanent hair removal. On most areas you will feel absolutely nothing. However, if there is an area of dense hair growth or some hairs haven’t been removed fully before the treatment, you may feel some of the impulses but still to a lesser extent than IPL or laser. Be sure to fully remove all hair by shaving thoroughly prior to each treatment and you should experience a PAIN FREE treatment!
What do I need to do before I start treatments?
The first step for you with us is to come in for a consultation and patch test. Your consultation will be one of the most important stages of your treatment as this is when your therapist can assess your hair, skin type etc. You consultation will allow you and your therapist to discuss the treatment, ensure there are no medical concerns that would interfere with the treatment and answer any questions you may have. Please ensure there is hair present in the area at the time of consultation so your therapist can complete the consultation correctly.
We hope that after your consultation you are equipped with all the information you need to decide if a course of SHR is for you.
A patch test must be performed on each area you would like treated as part of your consultation and there must be a hair free area where we can complete the patch test. This must be completed at least 48 hours before your first treatment. Although this patch test is to test for skin sensitivity, it also gives you a chance to feel how the treatment would feel.
BEFORE STARTING TREATMENTS
How do I remove hair before I start a course of SHR?
We recommend you stop waxing, threading or plucking at least 6 weeks before your first SHR treatment. We need hair to be in a certain growth stage for effective treatment and this is why this is very important. Shaving is perfectly fine prior to treatments and in fact you need to shave between 2 to 12 hours before each treatment to remove any visible hair.
How long should the intervals between treatments be?
Your therapist can advise you during your consultation. An average for many would be every 4 weeks but can range from person to person?
Do I need to stay out of the sun during my course of treatments?
Super Hair Removal is truly unique in its ability to treat tanned skin meaning there is no need to avoid a suntan during your course! You do need to avoid the sun for 72 hours before a treatment however to avoid too much heat in the area and the treatment would not be possible if there was any sunburn present?
Can I shave between treatments?
Absolutely! You can shave frequently between sessions. In fact, we need you to be freshly shaved for each session. If you have a quite sensitive skin you would be best to shave the day before your SHR treatment but if you have quite fast hair growth, it may be best for you to shave the day of the treatment.
Can I wax or pluck between SHR sessions?
If you wax or pluck a hair, the hair is completely removed from the follicle and disrupts the hair growth system we need for effective permanent hair removal. We advise you to wait 6 to 8 weeks after waxing or plucking before having SHR.
Does hair grow back once it has been removed?
As for all methods of permanent hair removal, it works by killing the hair growth from an individual follicle. However, certain hormonal changes, medication or disorders can stimulate hair growth but this would be from a new follicle showing new hair growth. A hair follicle successfully treated by SHR will never grow hair again.
Will I need maintenance sessions?
Yes. As hair growth can be stimulated by hormonal changes, medication etc. it is always possible for new hair follicles to be stimulated resulting in new hair growth. How many sessions will vary from person to person depending on the factors affecting their hair growth but we would expect people to need a couple of maintenance sessions per year.
