Everyone knows about IPL hair removal, but few people know about OPT SHR Laser. This post will help you know the difference between OPT SHR Laser and IPL. It is very interesting.

What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for low energy density non-exfoliating hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatments. It can emit a broad spectrum of 400-1200 nm. Its longer wavelengths result in a significant improvement in photo-damage and aging of the skin and hair removal. Its shorter wavelengths are for the treatment of pigmented and vascular skin lesions.

Therefore, IPL has a very wide range of applications, such as hair removal, vascular therapy, acne therapy, skin rejuvenation, wrinkle removal, etc. This machine is popular with beauty lovers.



However, with extensive clinical use, the shortcomings of the traditional IPL technique have become increasingly evident. The energy is in a decreasing pattern and is not controllable. The energy is high at the beginning, which tends to burn the skin, and too low at the end, which makes the treatment ineffective.

Therefore, there is an urgent need to solve this technical problem. After years of research and development and numerous clinical trials, BVLASER has developed a new generation of IPL machines – OPT SHR Laser.

What is OPT SHR Laser?

Optimum Pulse Light (OPT) is an advanced and improved version of IPL. OPT SHR Laser is a new technology for permanent hair removal which is having a sweeping success.

The machine is heating the dermis to a target temperature gradually, at that target temperature, it damages the hair follicles and prevents their re-growth effectively, meanwhile avoiding to injury the surrounding tissue around the hair follicles.

The cooling system can make sure that treatment more safe and painless. It would be fair to say that you will require at least 4 -6 treatments, one month apart, to obtain the best results.


Advantages of BVlaser’s OPT SHR Laser

High-quality rectangular light waves, perfect pulse technology

  • Safety: Elimination of the energy spike at the start of the pulse
  • Effectiveness: eliminating end-of-pulse energy decay and improving clinical efficacy; Uniformity: Uniform “square waves” are evenly distributed; Consistent energy for each sub-pulse; Ensuring repeatable and controllable treatment

Micro-pulse technology:

  • A single pulse with a number of micro-pulses
  • One single pulse = 10 subtle pulses

Conventional pulsed intense light shows a decreasing pattern, which makes the clinically effective energy for treatment very close to the energy that causes skin damage. The energy is not easy to control and can burn the skin if you are not careful. However, Micro-pulse technology can successfully address this technical barrier.

A single pulse is divided equally into 10 sub-pulses, each with the same energy. The laser emits quickly and repeatedly without any influence, maintaining a stable and safe energy output.

Equipped with 7 filters (5 standards + 2 optional) for a wide range of treatments:

Filter Wavelength Functions
480 420-1200 nm Acne therapy
530 515-1200 nm Pigmented skin disorders, skin rejuvenation
560 560-1200 nm Pigmented skin diseases, vascular diseases, skin rejuvenation
590 590-1200 nm Vascular diseases, skin rejuvenation, hair removal
640 640-1200 nm Light epidermal hair removal, skin rejuvenation
690 690-1200 nm Medium-depth hair removal, skin rejuvenation
750 750-1200 nm Hair removal and rejuvenation of coarse dark hair

Low voltage output, high safety:

  • Low voltage output reduces post-treatment side effects. However, most photonic devices on the market, with an input voltage of 480V-520V, output too much energy.
  • With the technical upgrade, BV’s IPL averages 300V-350V for low voltage input, effectively handling energy properly and safely.

In a word, the new version of OPT SHR Laser is a good choice to go for permanent hair removal. If you want to know the price, please contact us to get the best discount.
