Soprano Ice laser Hair Removal

The Soprano Ice Laser Hair Removal system is virtually pain free. Most clients only experience a gentle warming sensation in the area being treated with some feeling a very mild pins and needles sensation. Other laser systems have differing levels of pain associated with them from mild to Ouch!

6 to 8 treatments are recommended to achieve optimum results with some stronger hair growth areas such as the face and private area possibly needing more treatments. Facial laser hair treatments should be every 4 weeks for the first 4 treatments then every 4-6 weeks thereafter. Body laser hair removal treatments are performed every 6 weeks for the first 4 treatments then every 6-8 weeks after that.

Laser hair removal will only treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth, roughly 10-15% of the hair in any particular area will be at this phase at any time. Each treatment, 4-8 weeks apart will treat different hairs at this stage of their life cycle so you may see up to 10-15% reduction in hair per treatment. Most people will go for 6 to 8 treatments per area, possibly more for more resistant areas such as the face or private area.

Apart from shaving, avoid any other hair removal methods such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks prior to treatment. Avoid sun exposure, sunbeds or any kind of fake tan for 2 – 8 weeks (depending on laser model).  It is necessary to shave any area to be treated with laser to ensure the session is safe and effective. The optimal time to shave is around 8 hours before your appointment time.

It is important to patch test before a laser hair removal treatment even if you have had laser hair removal at a different clinic before. The procedure allows the laser therapist to check that your skin is suitable for laser hair removal and will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. A general inspection of your skin will take place and then a small area of each part of your body you would like to treat will be exposed to the laser light. In addition to ensuring no adverse reactions occur, this also provides the clinic with the opportunity to tailor the machine’s settings to your personal requirements to ensure safety and treatment comfort.
