Soprano Laser Hair Removal
Do you hate shaving, tweezing, plucking or waxing regularly to remove the unwanted hair on your skin? If you dream of a life free of unwanted hair, then Soprano Laser Hair Removal treatment is an option you must consider.
Medical Cosmetics Clinic in Nottingham offers Soprano Laser Hair Removal treatment for pain-free hair removal on all types of skin.
What is it used for?
Soprano Laser Hair Removal is used for removal of unwanted hair as well as hair reduction in the long-term. The treatment of removal of dark hair is far more effective using this procedure than for fair or grey hair. The dark hair contains a large amount of dark melanin. Light can be absorbed by dark objects more efficiently than light objects; so laser energy can be absorbed by melanin in the hair with more speed and intensity compared to fair or grey hair that lacks melanin. Less melanin means less generation of heat, which less probability of permanent destruction of the hair follicles. The grey hair has no melanin, and therefore cannot be adequately treated.
How is it carried out?
An applicator is used in this process which is placed in direct contact with the skin surface. The device is moved across the skin as laser passes from it. Static shots of the laser across the targeted areas of the skin as an alternate method for hair removal. The facial procedure takes around 10 to 15 minutes to complete. The hair removal treatment for back and legs may take close to 2 hours.
The Soprano Laser system heats the hair follicles in the dermal layer of the skin without damaging the surface. The heat energy is delivered through an infrared diode laser pulse to the follicles area until they can no longer produce new hair. Cooling heads are used to ensure the procedure is painless. The laser is in continuous motion which allows the wide area to be treated more quickly. The sweeping paint-brush used in this laser hair removal procedure significantly reduces the duration of the process, minimises discomfort, and negates the probability of missing any areas which can be commonly seen in other types of hair removal procedures.
What areas can be treated?
The most preferred areas for hair removal for men are chest, back, and abdomen. For women, the popular treatment areas are the upper lip, underarms, standard bikini lines, and legs.
This unique laser hair removal procedure can be used to treat:
- Small-areas such as the chin, fingers, feet, hands and nipples.
- Medium-areas such as neck, beard line lower arms, and shoulders.
- Large-areas such as back, beard, and neck.
- Full face including upper lip, chin, side of the face, and forehead.
Is it safe? Does it hurt?
The Soprano laser is pain-free. Apart from very mild discomfort, you will not experience any severe pain. The hair removal process through laser is widely recognised and considered safe in the aesthetic medical industry. This process was given a clearance by the FDA in 2005 and has provided permanent hair removal and reduction solution to thousands of patients worldwide.
