Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular method of getting rid of unwanted hair and managing excessive or abnormal hair growth. Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
Soprano Ice Laser Hair Removal
The Soprano Ice Platinum is one of the most advanced laser hair removal systems on the market and is extremely popular due to the comfort of the treatment and the effective results achieved by the machine.
The melanin pigment in the hair attracts and absorbs the energy released by the handheld device, as it is passed over the treated area. The gradual and precise build up of heat damages the structures of the hair, which will fall out over 2-3 weeks after the session. The hair follicles’ ability to grow hair has been compromised so hair growth in that certain follicle will not reoccur.
