HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE?
Hair follicles have growth cycles and the follicle must be in the anagen phase of its growth cycle in order to kill it. Not all follicles will be in the same phase of the growth cycle at the same time, which is why multiple treatments are required. This varies depending on the person skin, hair type, and hormones. Results are seen after the first treatment but to seek permanent hair reduction it will be following 6 to 10 treatments and expect 8-10 treatments in the more hormonal areas. Once the series of treatments are done we recommend maintenance touch ups once or twice a year as needed.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO COME IN FOR A TREATMENT?
Consistency is key with laser hair removal. Once you decide to start your hair-free journey, you will need to come back for a treatment every 4-6 weeks depending on the body part until the hairs are significantly reduced or you are no longer shaving anymore.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
We advise you to please ONLY shave all areas you would like treated by the laser the day prior to your appointment. The hair needs to be in the follicle in order for the laser to treat the hair. (Please do not wax or tweeze throughout the laser process)
If you are doing a treatment on your face, you will need to avoid any retinol, retin-a, or topical creams 1-2 weeks pre/post treatment.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
The treatment using the Soprano Ice laser is virtually painless. We have been told it feels similar to a warm stone massage with slight tugging on the hairs.
WILL THE LASER WORK IN THE SUMMER ON TANNED SKIN?
Yes! The Soprano ICE works on all skin types even tanned! As long as your are not sun burnt then we are able to treat you.
HOW LONG SHOULD I PLAN FOR RECOVERY AFTER MY LASER TREATMENT?
For most of our clients there is no down-time after the laser treatment and for the very few there is a slight redness which goes away in about 15-30 mins after the treatment.
You can come get your treatment during your lunch break and go back to work right after!
WILL THE HAIR BE GONE FOREVER?
Laser hair removal's true definition is permanent hair reduction. Once you have completed your treatments you may go weeks to months without shaving but will still have light hairs that you may need to touch up before the beach or pool. As for laser touch ups most people will need a touch up once or twice a year as needed to maintain the results.
