FAQs

What is Soprano ICE?

Soprano ICE is the latest generation of the award-winning Soprano laser hair removal system. It is the most complete and effective laser hair removal system available today.

Is hair removal with Soprano ICE really painless?

 

Soprano ICE uses Alma Laser’s SHR method, which is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The unique heating and energy delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle while preventing injury and pain to the surrounding tissue. At the same time, integrated ICETM tech cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain.

 

Is laser hair removal safe?

 

Absolutely. Soprano ICE’s SHR method has been proven in multiple clinical studies as the safest method of laser hair removal for all skin types. With SHR, hair follicles are damaged not by a single pulse of high energy which can injure the skin, but by repetitive short energy pulses. These pulses produce heat build-up which gradually raises the temperature of the dermis to the level needed for preventing hair growth, while minimizing the risk of burns.

 

Can Soprano ICE be used in the summer and can it treat tanned skin?

 

Yes. Soprano ICE’s SHR method affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin. Furthermore, sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following SHR treatment.

 

How long are treatment sessions with Soporano ICE?

 

While Soprano ICE offers the fastest laser hair removal solution available today, the duration of treatment can vary depending on the patient’s skin color, hair type and the area being treated. Treatment time can range from a few seconds for a small area such as above the upper lip, to 8 minutes for the entire back.

 

How many treatments do patients typically need in order to see results?

 

Depending on the patient’s skin and hair type, full results are typically seen following  6 to 8 treatment sessions. With Soprano ICE most patients see noticeable hair reduction after the first treatment.

How do you prepare for Laser Hair Removal session?

 

To prepare for laser hair removal, avoid plucking, waxing, and tanning for six weeks prior to your first treatment. In the days before treatment, avoid taking medications such as blood thinners, NSAIDs, and pain relievers. Take a shower and shave right before your treatment, but don’t apply any lotions, moisturizers, or sunscreens to the skin.

Can I get laser hair removal treatments while I’m pregnant?

 

The answer is NO. It is not recommended. Breast feeding mother are allowed to do Laser treatments for all body area except than breast while they are breast feeding.

Can I Get Laser Hair Removal if I’m on Medication?

Laser Hair Removal is only affected by a small pool of medications; those drugs which are considered ‘photosensitive'. Avoid taking photosensitive drugs before starting Laser treatments.

A photosensitive drug is one that is affected by exposure to UV light. The extent to which people taking these types of medication will be affected by UV exposure will differ depending on the amount of photoreactive (light-sensitive) agents contained within the drug, as well as the natural sensitivity of the user’s skin.
