Laser hair removal is the best way to remove unwanted hair, so you no longer need to shave, pluck or have painful wax treatments. The Soprano XL uses patented cooling technology to keep the surface of your skin comfortable. With the sweeping motion, there are no areas of hair that are missed.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a focused beam of light or laser to heat hair follicles so that they are damaged and can no longer grow hair. The laser targets the pigment in the hair, so it is more effective for dark hair and not so effective for red, white or blond hair.
In the past, the treatment was more successful for people with dark hair and light skin, but technology has advanced to make the treatment also effective for people with darker or tanned skin.
Hair grows in stages, and laser hair removal needs to be done during the growth stage. Since all the hairs are not at the same stage at the same time, several treatments are required to target every hair.
If you are considering laser hair removal, we will:
• Study your medical history including any prescription medication you may be taking
• Talk about the benefits and outcomes of the procedure with you, so you understand any risks and have realistic expectations
• Design a treatment plan to help you achieve smooth, hair-free skin
It may be necessary to avoid an electrolysis treatment, pluck or wax your hair for at least a month before the laser treatment. These hair removal methods disturb the follicle, and the Soprano XL laser needs a healthy follicle to be effective. Shaving is all right and even recommended because it leaves the follicle intact while reducing the amount of hair that is above the skin.
Before the treatment, the trained technician may trim your hair. You’ll also be given special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser. If necessary, the technician may apply a topical anesthetic to the skin to reduce any discomfort.
However, the Soprano XL uses the latest technology to cool your skin and remove the hair with little or no pain. The treatment may take a few minutes for the upper lip or an hour or more for a man’s back.
