1. How often do i have the laser done?
Since the laser only treats the active stage of hair growth one considers the duration of the hair cycle.
For ultimate results we recommend:
4 – 6 weeks for smaller body areas (underarm / upper lip / bikini)
6 – 8 weeks for larger body areas (legs / back / chest)
2. How does it work?
The Soprano XLI Pain-Free laser hair removal, Hair-Free™ laser system gradually heats the hair follicles in the sub dermal layer of your skin using pulses of infrared Diode laser energy (810nm) and is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) found in the hair root. This raises the temperature to a level sufficient enough to destroy the targeted hair structures, thus preventing hair re-growth.
3. Is it safe?
Laser is light and not radiation!!! Research has shown no links to laser as a cause of cancer.
Laser hair removal has been excessively researched in the aesthetic medical industry. Soprano pain-free, hair-free™ laser has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.
The settings are customized to each person’s individual skin type making it safe for darker as well as tanned skin.
4. Is it permanent?
Lasers have been performed experimentally for about 20 years before becoming commercially available in the mid-1990s. In 1997 the FDA approved them for “permanent hair reduction” for the medical aesthetics.
Diode lasers (810nm wavelength) have proven to eliminate 90% of hair re-growth.
The hair follicles that are treated are eliminated, however some hairs could have been missed due to their dormant stage during the treatment.
Hormone imbalances (e.g. polycystic ovaries) and changes (e.g. puberty, menopause or pregnancy) can stimulate dormant hair follicles to become active; in this case one would need a touch up treatment.
