Soprano

Painful laser hair removal is now a thing of the past!

We are delighted to offer the latest generation of the award-winning Soprano laser hair removal system, Soprano ICE.

The Soprano ICE platform represents a new era in laser hair removal technology and treatment methods. By incorporating multiple laser wavelengths and technologies, Soprano ICE allows us to treat the widest range of patients and hair types quickly and painlessly, all year round.

So whether you are pain intolerant, suffering with hormone induced hair or have been told lasers are not for you this is all about to change.

Using a diode laser combined with ‘in-motion' technology and a sophisticated cooling system the advanced Soprano laser hair removal technology is:

  • Virtually painless
  • Proven safety record
  • Available for all skin types
  • Highly effective with successful results
  • Fast and efficient
  • FDA approved

How does it work?

The Soprano laser light safely and gently passes through the dermis allowing the laser light to be absorbed into the hair root destroying the cells so they can no longer produce hair. Though hair re-growth has been prevented the laser does not injure the surrounding skin and the Soprano laser system procedure is totally pain-free.


How does the Soprano laser system differ from traditional laser technology?

All laser technology previously available emits laser light using a pulse method.

This process can be painful, time consuming and may not work on all skin and hair types.

By contrast the advanced Soprano pain free hair removal system diode laser technology uses low fluence, high average power and repetition rate so the application of light is constant. This allows for the ‘in-motion' technology to be quick and efficient as it is delivered in a sweeping paint brush motion over the skin as opposed to the pain-staking and time consuming pulse method.

Furthermore, the superior Soprano system cooling head that is used means there is only a warming sensation during the procedure as opposed to pain and discomfort from traditional laser technology. The Soprano hair removal system treatment does not need to be started and stopped because of discomfort and there have been no reported adverse side effects.

Does the Soprano laser system hurt?

No not at all. You will experience a warming sensation but no discomfort.

Is the Soprano laser system safe?

The Soprano laser technology is approved by the FDA (the Food and Drug Administration) in the USA for laser hair reduction. Advances in technology means laser hair reduction temporary side effects are incredibly rare.

How many Soprano laser treatments do I need?

During your consultation your hair and skin will be assessed and you will be recommended a tailored programme that will offer you the best results for your needs. On average we recommend 3-6 sessions. Occasional maintenance treatments may be required.

Does the Soprano laser treat all hair types?

New technology enables us to reduce hair types which previously could not be done. Your hair will be assessed during consultation. If you have been informed your hair is too light in the past, we recommend you are re-assessed.

How do I remove the hair in between treatments?

Your Soprano laser treatment will retard the hair growth at some points during your treatment course. It will also ‘fall out' approx. 3 weeks following treatment. You can shave any hair that appears but you must not remove the hair from the follicle (i.e. waxing or plucking).

Is there anything I should do before and after a Soprano laser treatment?

Do your best to minimise a suntan to the area being treated: this could make the Soprano laser treatment less effective. This includes sun-beds and tanning products. Skin preparations such as retinol, glycolic or acne preparations should be avoided.

Certain medications will make the skin sensitive to the laser light. Check with your practitioner.

How much does the Soprano laser treatment cost?

Soprano laser treatment costs will vary as per the number of treatments required for your hair removal course.

At consultation we will establish how many treatments you will need and the cost of your course.
