The ELITS EPIL808 is an innovative SHR laser for permanent hair removal with medical approval – developed & produced in Europe for use in beauty salons, medical & medical practices. The EPIL808 SHR hair removal laser convinces technically not only by its extreme durability & power, but also by its exclusive design – a real eye-catcher in every beauty studio. 

For many years, permanent hair removal has been one of the biggest topics in apparative cosmetics. The awareness of a hair-free, smooth body is equally pronounced in both women and men.

While in the past mainly IPL devices were used for permanent hair removal, the SHR laser, also known as SHR diode laser, has now established itself as the newest, most effective & most gentle technology.

The ELITS EPIL808 SHR laser, developed & produced in Europe, is considered an innovative & efficient hair removal laser – with medical approval.

Compared to the original IPL device technology, with the EPIL808 SHR laser and its dual-focused mode of action through the SHR glide technology, permanent hair removal is possible from as few as 4 treatments – and for almost every hair & skin type.

The ELITS SHR laser convinces with its longevity: with up to 25 million pulses, the European hair removal laser enables many treatments. In addition, the SHR laser applicator is particularly lightweight, which makes treatment over a longer period of time completely carefree for the user.

The powerful skin contact cooling system on the applicator, with a cooling strength of up to -7°C, ensures that the patient feels particularly comfortable during treatment.

A special feature of the SHR hair removal laser is the almost silent operating volume, creating an all-around quiet & relaxed treatment atmosphere.

The laterally integrated accessory storage compartments, the modular housing composition, the oversized rollers, which ensure special stability, and also the high-quality installed & customized components round off the aesthetic concept of the SHR laser – and make it a real eye-catcher in every beauty & cosmetic studio.

Interesting facts about EPIL808 SHR LASER

Every skin & hair type! The innovative process enables permanent depilation for every hair and skin color.

A “permanent hair removal” is not necessarily life-long, but rather defined for a longer period of life. Why is this so? In the skin there are always inactive cells of the hair, which could not be detected during the treatment period. Over time, these cells can become active in isolated cases and thus stimulate hair growth. Likewise, pregnancies or hormonal fluctuations (e.g. menopause) can cause new hair cells to be formed and hair growth to resume.

Laser hair removal can be applied to the whole body.

No, the treatment is painless. Only a “tingling” warming effect is felt.

With the innovative diode laser hair removal, permanent depilation can be achieved in just 4 to 5 sessions. The duration of the treatment always depends on the body area to be treated and can be between 10 minutes and about 3 hours.

After a treatment for permanent hair removal, a soothing depilation after-treatment cream should be applied as a preventive measure. You can obtain this directly from us. It is also important not to expose the treated skin to sunlight. A sun blocker is therefore essential.

The IPL device technology is considered the first method of permanent hair removal, which works via light application. “IPL” is the abbreviation for “Intense Pulsed Light” and translates as intensely pulsed light, which is applied to the skin and hair without being bundled.

IPL device technology works with single, high-energy pulses of light that are applied to the skin unbundled, spot by spot. The IPL method uses short pulses with a duration of 2 – 300 milliseconds, which, however, generate high energy of up to 120 joules per cm².

The applied IPL energy is absorbed to the hair papillae via melanin, the pigment of the hair. Melanin has the crucial property of being able to absorb photons (light particles). The hair in turn transmits this light energy to the follicle, where a heat of up to 72°C is generated. As a result of the heating, the hair root is destroyed, so that no new hair can grow.

At the same time, however, the IPL device technology also brings with it limitations: because with IPL, primarily dark hair – ideally on light skin – can be permanently removed. Because in dark hair, the pigmentation and thus the melanin content is most pronounced, so that the light absorption and consequently the permanent hair removal can take effect at all. Lighter hair, e.g. white or grayish, on the other hand, has only a low melanin content and can therefore absorb light energy only weakly or not at all.

In order to counteract this problem and to enable permanent depilation for as many different hair and skin types as possible, the IPL device technology was supplemented by the SHR glide method. Meanwhile, the SHR technology is mainly represented in the field of innovative high-power laser hair removal – as SHR laser or SHR diode laser.

“SHR” is the abbreviation for Super(-fast) Hair Removal and refers to the glide technology of the laser applicator, with which permanent hair removal is possible much faster than with original IPL systems.

The SHR laser technology works with several, low-energy and bundled laser pulses, which are applied to larger areas of the skin in a gliding movement of the applicator.
larger areas of the skin. The technology utilizes up to 15 pulses per second, which causes the skin layer to be evenly & moderately

As with IPL technology, the applied SHR energy is absorbed by the hair papillae via melanin, i.e. the hair’s pigment. Melanin has the property of being able to absorb photons (light particles) and transmit them. 

On the other hand – and here lies the difference to the IPL device technology – at the same time a direct denaturation of the stem cell proteins takes place at a target temperature of 45°C, so that the nutrition supply to the hair root is cut off and it is consequently obliterated. Thus, the SHR technology uses two ways for permanent hair removal.

The advantage of SHR hair removal is that due to the dual effect technology every skin & hair type can be treated. In addition, the relatively lower heat release not only reduces the risk of skin burns, but also guarantees a completely painless treatment.

The SHR laser technology uses an optimized filter with a light wavelength of 808 or 810 NM for permanent hair removal, in order to
to penetrate directly & focused into the skin layer where the hair roots are located. This allows maximum & highly efficient results to be achieved.

After successful hair & skin analysis, a special gel is first applied to the skin or the body area to be treated, which primarily contributes to the cooling function. Now the SHR laser handpiece is “driven” several times over the skin area to be treated & emits several laser pulses.

In total, about 6 – 8 treatments per body part are needed to achieve permanent hair removal.

The SHR laser technology can only develop its full effect if the hair is treated in its growth phase. Because only in this phase is the hair connected to the hair root, so that the light energy absorbed via the melanin can also be transmitted to the hair root – and thus ultimately obliterate it.

At any one time, only about 20% of the hair is in its growth phase, as this phase is different for each hair. Consequently, several treatments are necessary to achieve permanent hair removal.

Meanwhile, small home IPL devices for self-dehairing are very much in vogue – but such hair removal is strictly warned against, among others, on the part of the Ärztezeitung.

Because there is on the one hand the risk of the Unterdosierung, which leads to a Ergrauen instead of removing the hair. On the other hand, there is the risk of overdosing, which in turn causes burns, light damage and also an increased risk of skin cancer.

Permanent (laser) hair removal should therefore always be performed by trained personnel. This is the only way to ensure maximum success without (skin) damage.
