FAQ:

How does laser hair removal work?

The Soprano Ice laser gradually heats the dermis to a temperature that effectively kills hair follicles, but causes no damage to the surrounding skin. Either a 755nm Alex laser or a 810nm Diode laser is used to specifically target the pigment in the hair. The pigment heats up and destroys the hair follicle, then hair will be naturally lost and will not re-grow.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Soprano Ice uses SHR technology and cools the skin as it gradually heats the deeper layer of the dermis where the hair follicles are being treated. The Ice Tech cold sapphire tip minimises any risk of burns, and cools as it works. Laser hair removal with Soprano Ice has been likened to a hot stone massage.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally you will need 08 treatments to target all the hair follicles at the optimum cycle of hair growth. We offer a package of treatments, with 4-6 weeks between visits for facial hair, and 6-8 weeks between visits for the body.

How long does it take?

Treatment time varies depending on the size of the area being treated; appointment times can be as short as 15 minutes.

What’s it like?

Rest assured that everything will be fully explained at your consultation, and you will be able to ask any questions that you want to. Basically, you will need to shave the area the night before. At the appointment a gel is applied to the area. The Ice Tech tip is then passed over the area for a set time, and you will feel a gradual warming of the area – it is often likened to a hot stone massage.

Can anyone have laser hair removal?

All skin types can be treated with Soprano Ice – even tanned skin. Best results are seen with light skin and dark hair, but with Soprano Ice’s Alex hand-piece, it is also effective for lighter hair types.

What’s the difference between laser treatment and IPL?

Laser and IPL are both used for hair removal, but are very different light based treatments. It is important to know how the treatments are being performed and what it is you’re actually paying for. Both Laser and IPL treatments can be used for hair removal, skin rejuvenation, vascular lesions and pigmentation, but the results are very different. Laser machines produce a single wavelength of light (pure light consisting of one colour and form), which has a very concentrated beam and a specific target (in this case, the melanin in the hair follicle). The colour of your hair and skin type will determine the settings of the machine and will be discussed with you during your consultation. Laser machines are tuned to emit the exact wavelength required to treat your hair. Laser machines create more heat directed towards the hair follicle than IPL systems, hence achieving better results. The heat is absorbed by the follicle and not the skin, therefore there is a decreased risk of burning when using Laser machines – this also makes laser a safer option for darker skinned individuals.  Additionally, our Soprano Ice Laser has a unique cooling tip to cool the skin as it works, bringing you the most comfortable hair removal system available.laser-vs-ipl

Can I be treated for ingrown hairs?

Laser treatment is recommended by dermatologists as the best way of preventing ingrown hairs, together with the associated pain, discomfort and unsightliness.

Ingrown hairs arise when a new hair growing curls in on itself and becomes trapped in the follicle. Inflammation causes redness and localised swelling and infection can ensue. This occurs most commonly in areas where hair is coarse or curly or where frequent shaving occurs; in men, on their chin and neck ( causing razor or shaving bumps) and in women, in the pubic area, underarms or along the bikini line.

If you are prone to this problem, then laser treatment is the hair removal method of choice, as the laser energy targets the hair follicle to prevent new hair growth.
