How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
In your consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. On the day of your procedure, you will lie in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned. Your technician will utilize a laser beam that will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, preventing the hair from growing back. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to get your best results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. While the laser is relatively gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like a slight sunburn. After your session, you are free to resume your normal routine, but you should refrain from strenuous activities and sun exposure for about 24 hours.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How much does laser hair removal cost?
A laser hair removal treatment with Soprano ICE varies in cost based on the coverage area being addressed on the body, as well as the number of sessions recommended to attain a smooth result. To help you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, think of the time and energy you are spending on shaving, waxing, or other hair removal methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is typically less expensive overall and can save you energy and time. We will develop a custom plan that includes the total number of appointments you need and prices.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting results. While patients can enjoy the results of the procedure for a long time, laser hair removal is technically semi-permanent since some follicles may continue growing. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair will be gone once their plan is finished, and if some hairs are still growing, it is easier to deal with. More laser treatments can also be needed to take care of new growth and any stragglers as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Your hair growth occurs in phases. While some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are resting. Since each follicle is in various stages, multiple sessions are suggested to target each hair when it is active. Getting your sessions over several weeks will help you get the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal with the Soprano ICE hurt?
Your laser hair removal session may cause minor discomfort, but it isn't painful. Patients will feel a small snap as the laser targets and removes each hair follicle. Your technician may apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin before your treatment. Patients who have been getting waxed report that laser hair removal feels much less discomfort than a session of waxing.
