Soprano ICE Laser Hair Removal
The Cindy Knight Clinic is pleased to be able to offer you the latest technology regarding pain-free hair-free skin utilising our Soprano Ice Super Hair Removal (SHR) system.
- Suitable for all skin types including tanned skin
- Suitable for all hair types
- Virtually pain free
- Treatments can be taken all year round
The Soprano ICE™ laser machine is the latest development for permanent hair reduction from Alma Lasers, the world’s leading developer of laser, ultrasound and RF technologies for aesthetic, dermatology and surgical procedures. A proven method of effective and virtually pain free hair removal, Soprano ICE™ laser can safely treat all skin types, including tanned skin and all hair types including thin and red hair, all year round. In addition Soprano ICE™ with SHR Technology is clinically proven to have the industry’s highest coverage rate which to our clients means faster treatment times. For example, treatment for full leg rather than taking hours can be done in just 30 minutes. This is due to the In-Motion technique which collectively heats up and deactivates all the hair roots within a grid, as opposed to seeking individual chromosphores at the hair root.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ’s:
Where can I have the treatment?
Patients seek hair removal treatments for almost any body part, from facial or bikini line treatments to leg, arm, neck or back hair removal. We also treat ears, nostrils and the dreaded mono-brow.
What will happen?
You can expect results from a series of relatively short sessions. (The actual time depends mainly on the size of the area you are having treated.) Leah and Diana are our aesthetic technicians who have extensive training and years of Soprano hair removal experience who will perform each treatment and you are free to return to normal activities immediately after each session.
How does it work?
Soprano ICE works by using pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of skin until they can no longer produce new hair. Using unique, IN-Motion™ technology and a patented DualChill™ treatment tip, the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable. The sweeping motion also eliminates any skipped or missed spots common to other types of laser hair removal.
Is it Safe?
Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers. Soprano® XL family of lasers has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.
How many treatments will I need?
There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you’ll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Typically, it will require 8 - 10 treatments or more to permanently reduce the number of regrowing hairs by more than 80%, six months after the last treatment.
Will my hair ever grow back?
The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may be only stunned and will need to be retreated. Also some issues regarding hormones may cause regrowth.
