- No downtime
- Virtually pain free
- Works on all skin shades
How it works:
Through our laser’s SHR Mode the specific wavelength of 810 nm penetrates into the dermis where the hair follicle is located. Consistent, high average power capabilities facilitate the 10 pulse-per-second repetition rate for “hair removal in motion” that allows for a virtually painless procedure.
The laser wavelength is attracted to the hair follicles, using enough power to disable or destroy the root without harming the surrounding skin. This process is called selective photothermolysis. It is selective because it targets only the hair and not the skin.
What to expect:
Fast, effective and virtually pain free-hair removal. At most, you may feel a warm sensation or a “prickly” spot here and there as the laser penetrates to the hair follicle. Mild temporary rosiness of the area, as well as a short “hairless” period in the early stages of your treatment series before the next phase of hair grows in (the hair cycles through growth and non-growth phases, making it necessary to get a series of treatments to affect all of the hair in an area).
You can expect a 90 – 95 % reduction in unwanted hair after an adequate series of treatments *results may vary. Hair is natural to your body and it grows in stages. At any given time, not all hairs are actively growing and lasers are most effective at targeting the growing hairs. Some follicles are destroyed, while others are reduced to fine hairs or shocked into prolonged dormancy.
It is possible that with a sufficient number of treatments, true “hair removal” can ultimately be achieved, but not for every single hair present in a given area. Age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, medications, hair follicle concentration, and hormones all play a role in the location, resilience, and thickness of hair. It is difficult, to predict how many treatments each individual will require to achieve the best long term benefits. However, it has been our experience that 6 to 8 treatments four to six weeks apart is the most effective schedule.
Please note that IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and different forms of IPL are very commonly used for hair removal in other facilities, but these are NOT lasers. Intense Pulsed Light has a difficult time penetrating to the depth of the hair follicle and lacks the specificity of a single wavelength laser device. That is why some people who have done hair removal with IPL may be disappointed in the results.
The Soprano XL 810 nm diode laser with SHR technology stands tall as an effective and comfortable way to get results in hair removal.
