What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser therapy is steadily taking over the ritual of hair removal with subscribers endorsing the treatment from pillar to Instagram post, yet many are still struggling to separate myth from fact.
Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
How Does It Work?
The Soprano Ice Platinum is a state-of-the-art laser hair removal device. This machine uses In-Motion technology that keeps the skin protected while destroying the hair follicles.
It uses 3 different wavelengths to target even the deep-rooted hairs.
These wavelengths are not harmful to the skin and due to the constant movement of the head (In-Motion), the treatment feels very comfortable.
The Soprano Ice Platinum also features a patented cooling tip, which cools to minus 3 degrees, comfortably cooling the skin during treatment.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Depending on the skin type, hair type and hair density, the number of treatments needed may range between 6, 8 or 12 sessions.
Hormonal changes can also affect the number of treatments needed.
You can see results after the very first treatment if the hairs are in the active Anagen phase.
It takes 4-6 weeks (smaller areas) and 6-8 weeks (larger areas) for the hair cycles to go through the phases, hence your treatments are spaced every 4-6 weeks to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Do's and Don'ts
