How is the Soprano Titanium different to other lasers?
The Soprano Titanium is the latest in laser hair removal technology as it combines the three most effective laser wavelengths into a single applicator. This means that the laser will damage the hair at three different depths of the follicle simultaneously.
The Soprano Titanium also has an incredible Quattro handpiece. This is the largest applicator head than other device, meaning the time it takes to treat a patient is reduced by up to 40%. Treatment is also virtually pain-free due to the revolutionary ICE PLUS system, which cools the skin while the device disrupts the follicles. This machine, unlike many other laser hair removal options, can be used all year round on all skin types, from 1-6, and can even be safely and effectively employed to remove hair on tanned skin.
What results can I expect with Soprano Titanium Laser Hair Removal?
The result: A 50 to 80% (or better) reduction in unwanted hair. Hair is natural to your body and it grows in stages. At any given time, not all hairs are growing and
lasers are most effective at targeting the growing hairs. In practice, no laser destroys all of the hair follicles. Some follicles are destroyed, while others are
reduced to fine hairs or shocked into prolonged dormancy. Multiple treatments provide the best results.
How many sessions will I need?
We usually advise that 6 to 8 treatment sessions are needed to provide a permanent reduction of hair growth. This is because at any given time some of the follicles in the treatment area won’t be in the growth phase. We spread our treatments out to make sure that hair that it’s treated in one session is affected in the next. Facial hair tends to be more stubborn and may need ten to twelve treatment sessions or occasionally more in very resistant cases. The gap between sessions is usually 4-6 weeks for facial areas and 6-8 weeks for body areas. The number of hair removal sessions depends on various factors, including where the hair is, how thick it is and also your particular skin type and hair colour. For the best results we recommend that you complete the full course of treatment sessions. Our laser practitioners can answer all your questions and offer support. If at any time you want to discuss any part of the hair removal programme, please give us a call at any time of the day.
Will the hair fall out straight away?
The Soprano Titanium laser destroys hair simultaneously at different depths within the hair follicle, but it does not always fall out right away, in fact, treated hair can be slow to expel. You can usually encourage this with gentle exfoliation. The hair will shed naturally in 2 – 3 weeks post treatment.
Which skin types are suitable?
The Soprano Titanium is the only FDA approved laser on the market that can be used on ALL skin types, including tanned skin.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime associated with the Soprano Titanium, and the treatment is entirely pain-free due to the cooling technology used within the device
How do I remove hair in between treatments?
Shaving is the preferred method of removing hairs before and in between the treatments. You must refrain from waxing or plucking the hairs as these methods will remove hairs at their root level, causing the active hairs not to be present for the laser to act on them, making the treatment ineffective.
