The latest generation of the award-winning Soprano laser hair removal system, Soprano ICE is used by advanced hair removal clinics and leading physicians around the world.How does it work?
Soprano Ice uses Alexandrite and Diode laser technologies to produce a concentrated beam of light that has a specific target: the melanin in the hair follicle. The melanin absorbs the light, heating up the follicle and destroying it. It is important that all hairs are caught in their growth phase so a minimum of 6 treatments are necessary to achieve a significant reduction in hair growth.
Soprano Ice uses ‘in-motion’ technology to treat large areas of skin quickly, whilst the ‘Ice’ technology cools the skin’s surface – preventing superficial burns, allowing for virtually painless, yet highly effective hair removal. The result is a cutting-edge hair removal solution that delivers superior results for all skin types- including dark skin. All areas of the body can be treated with Soprano Ice, from the under arms or bikini line, to ears and nostrils!Contraindications:
Hairs are not vaporised by the Soprano treatment. The hair follicles are killed by the heat but the hairs remain in the skin and often becomes attached to the epidermis. They will fall out after 1 to 4 weeks as the epidermis is renewed. During this period, it will seem that the hairs are growing as the epidermis pushes them out.How long does the treatment take?
The facial treatment can take as little as 10 minutes whereas both legs and/or an entire back take approximately 30min.How many treatments are necessary?
Only hair in the growth phase can be treated. The number of hairs in this phase varies from 10% to
70% depending on the body site. The lengths of the growth cycles also vary. For most patients
(unless there is a hormone imbalance) up to eight treatments is sufficient to remove virtually all
hairs on the body.
Facial hair may require more treatments. After the first treatment most patients get a significant reduction in hair density also new grown hairs tend to become finer. It is important to know that the first treatment is believed to synchronize the anagen (growth) phase of the non-anagen hairs. This may cause what seems to be re-growth but which is actually just the sleeping hairs starting to grow at the same time (new growth). This in turn makes the next treatment(s) more effective.
Patients should avoid tanning 1 month ahead of and during the entire treatment scenario to avoid excessive discomfort and complications from excessive light absorption in the epidermis. Immediately after the treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for 4-5 days.Please do not apply deodorant, perfumed products or aromatherapy products on treatment day.
