BREAK UP WITH YOUR RAZOR & DARE TO BE BARE
At L. Marcel Body Studio we use the Soprano ICE Platinum the latest generation of the award-winning Soprano laser hair removal system. ... The Platinum edition combines 3 laser wavelengths into a single innovative hand piece, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths as well as anatomical structures within the hair follicle.
WHY SOPRANO ICE?
Traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking, and waxing, achieve only temporary results. Until now, the only semi-permanent way to remove hair has been by electrolysis, which can be painful, time-consuming and is limited to small areas. Scarring, allergic reactions, and ingrown hairs are common side effects of all these hair removal methods.
Laser hair reduction reduces the amount of unwanted hair in a specific and targeted area. A laser sends beams of light through the skin and the heat is absorbed by the color in the hair. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle but leaves the surrounding skin unchanged. Think painless waxing laser, but more permanent. This meticulous selectivity helps to protect the skin, while effectively treating the unwanted hair. The skin is further protected during treatment by a dynamic cooling process in which the tip of the laser is as cold as ice on the skin to cool the upper layers.
This precaution provides another protective measure of comfort and ease for our patients.
Since hair grows in cycles, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy all the hair follicles. After each treatment, you can expect to see up to a 50% decrease in hair growth. With repeat treatments, it is possible to destroy about 80% of the hairs. If any new hairs grow, they will be noticeably lighter and finer. Treatment can be administered every four to eight weeks.
IS SOPRANO ICE PLATINUM PAINLESS?
Soprano ICE Platinum 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 SOPRANO ICE PLATINUM SAFE FOR DARK SKIN?
Yes. While the melanin in dark skin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment, Soprano ICE’s SHR method has been clinically proven to be the safe for dark skin types. Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to skin with a high melanin count, SHR gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This makes SHR the safest laser hair removal option, including for dark skinned patients.
CAN SOPRANO PLATINUM BE USED DURING THE SUMMER AND 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?
While Soprano ICE Platinum 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.
