Frequently Asked Questions
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The procedure involves use of broad-spectrum laser light, which passes through the skin and gets absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This light is specifically designed not to damage the surrounding skin but to selectively target the hair. The heat generated by the light targets only the hair follicle and disables it, therefore eliminating the hair and its potential re-growth to achieve the desired effect.
Who is the ideal candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Anyone with excessive body hair, who is tired of shaving, waxing or having hair in the wrong place is most likely a good candidate for laser hair removal, which includes teenagers and elders. Traditionally, permanent hair reduction has been difficult to achieve on darker skin types, however the Soprano ICE, we can offer this treatment for all skin types and all hair colors.
How many treatments do I need to see results?
Clients will typically need 4-6 treatments (in some cases up to 10) every 4 to 8 weeks depending on the area of concern. Facial, chest and back hair in men is often denser and usually require more treatments. Very light and fine hairs are more stubborn and might need additional treatments to ensure permanent cessation of growth.
During your consultation with your doctor, it’s important to mention any medical conditions. Certain conditions, such as hirsutism (excessive hair growth seen in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or hormonal changes might need further treatments.
Does the hair grow back?
A laser will only work on the hair follicle in its active growth phase. That particular hair will be permanently destroyed during the session. However, hair that might have been dormant during previous laser hair removal sessions can re-enter a growth phase. This is why multiple treatments are needed until all the hair in a growth phase is removed.
Which body areas can be treated?
Laser hair removal can be done on just about any area of the body where there is a need for unwanted hair to be removed.
