Laser Hair Removal

How many times have you wished you no longer had to shave, pluck or wax unwanted hair?  Now there’s a comfortable way to permanently eliminate regrowing hair.  Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers with a number of devices currently on the market using different technology. 

Although all areas of the body can be treated,  common areas include bikini, underarm and legs.  Many women experience  increased facial hair due to hormonal changes and this can be addressed by this  treatment.  Men may choose to have hair reduction rather than hair removal -  needing only 1 or 2 treatments.”



What is the Soprano Laser Treatment?

Thousands of patients worldwide have enjoyed a life without unwanted hair thanks to a procedure designed specifically to remove unwanted hair quickly and comfortably. This laser treatment gently heats targeted hair follicles with gentle pulses of laser energy.  The laser machine is constantly in motion and many patients say the treatment feels similar to a ‘hot stone massage’. Treatments are virtually pain-free and quick (usually under one hour) and you can return to normal activities immediately.  The results are long-lasting and effective for all skin types, including tanned skin, as well as different hair types.  The treatment is perfect for any area of the body - including more sensitive areas like the face, neck and bikini line


What will happen if I decide to have the treatment?

You will need to complete a medical information form to ensure you are suitable for treatment.  During the initial consultation with our specialist practitioner, your expectations will be discussed and the practitioner will tell you if these results are achievable.  If so, you will then be given a patch test - a small area on the area(s) to be treated will be shaved, a gel smeared on and the small handpiece of the laser machine will be moved back and forth across the area for about one minute.  If after one week the patchtest is fine, then you can proceed with treatment.


Do I need to shave before the treatment?

The area to be treated needs to be shaved 24 hours before treatment.  If treatment is under the arms, avoid deodorant or anti-perspirant. Do not tweeze, wax, bleach or use depilatories for 3 weeks before treatment.


How many treatments are needed?

The treatment is safe and you can expect lasting results from a series of relatively short sessions.  A session of up to 6 treatments is recommended as the hair grows through  several cycles.  We do find that some clients require an occasional ‘top-up’ treatment once the initial course is complete.


Who should not have hair removal treatment?

Clients who are pregnant or suffering from cold sores in the area to be treated or who are on certain photosensitive medications. Also clients who have an active tan or who are at the time using fake tan creams and those currently undergoing treatment for cancer.


Are there any side effects?

Skin redness and slight itching are quite common but usually clear very quickly.  Occasional crusting of a small area.  Blistering, scarring, hyperpigmentation are all very rare.
