So, how does it work?
Light from the laser is delivered gently and safely to the root of the hair. The root is heated to 45 degrees celcius which damages or destroys the base of the follicle and seals the capillaries so that it can no longer produce more hair. It does not damage the surrounding skin area and is virtually pain-free.
How is it different from previous laser treatments?
Before Soprano Ice, the technology emitted light through pulsing and was painful and more time-consuming. It wasn’t suitable for all skin types and couldn’t be used whilst the skin was tanned, making it more troublesome to complete a course of treatments.
Soprano Ice uses the industry gold-standard diode laser. It uses low fluence, high average power and repetition rate. This means that the application of light is constant, delivered in a sweeping motion across the skin in contrast to the time-consuming pulse method. A superior cooling head is used so that you only experience a warming sensation as opposed to the pain and discomfort associated with older laser technology.
Is it safe?
The Alma Soprano Ice Laser is FDA approved and has successfully provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide.
Which areas can be treated?
All areas of the face and body are suitable for treatment, including intimate areas for both men and women. We can also treat ears, nostrils, between the brows, toes and fingers.
How long does it last?
After each treatment you will have a hair-free period, and as you progress with your treatments these periods will increase. Soprano Ice has an unrivalled track-record in permanent hair removal and your therapist will devise a bespoke programme to deliver optimum results.
What is anagen hair?
The hair grows in cycles called anagen, catagen and telogen. The anagen hair is the active or growing hair which is attached to the blood supply in the follicle. The other two stages are shedding and resting. Only anagen hair can be effectively and permanently destroyed with laser hair removal so your treatments should be carried out at certain intervals to destroy the hair in the anagen stage.
How do I remove the hair between treatments?
Your Soprano Ice laser treatment will delay the growth of hair at points during your treatment course. You’ll find that it will also fall out around 3 weeks following your treatment. You can shave unwanted hair regrowth between treatments, but you must not remove the hair from the follicle. This means no waxing or plucking between treatments.
Does it hurt?
No, it doesn’t. You will feel a warming sensation on the skin, similar to that experienced during a hot stone massage. It’s very comfortable.
Can all skin types be treated?
Yes, with this new technology we can reduce hair types which could not be successfully treated in the past. Your therapist will advise you during your consultation. We can also treat tanned skin, previously unavailable, which means that you are not restricted in the timing of your plan.
How should I prepare for my first treatment?
Certain medications sensitize the skin exposed to light, so make sure you check with your doctor prior to treatment. You should also avoid skin preparations including retinol, glycolic acid and those for treating acne. Following the treatment, some clients may experience a slight warmth or redness in the treated areas however this is rare. Any redness or pinkish skin usually disappears after a few hours.
