Remember no-pain, no-gain? It doesn't have to apply to laser hair removal. Alma's Soprano ICE offers the right benefits that culminate in a treatment that minimizes the chances of negative side effects and maximizes patient comfort.
FDA cleared for all skin types (Fitz I - VI) and tanned skin safe to treat patients all year round.
Soprano ICE is the most complete and effective hair removal solution available today. By incorporating multiple laser wavelengths and technologies, Soprano ICE allows practitioners to treat the widest range of patients and hair types all year round, administer treatments quickly and comfortably and achieve the best possible clinical results.
Soprano ICE uses 810-nm diode laser technology, the GOLD Standard in laser hair removal since its introduction in 1988. Unlike earlier systems, however, Soprano ICE energy penetrates deep into the dermis (where the hair follicle is located). By combining the benefits of the Alexandrite wavelength with the advantages of a solid-state laser, Soprano ICE offers the cutting-edge in hair removal technology and treatment methods.
The Alma Laser Soprano ICE SHR Hair Removal at the Medical Aesthetics locations provides a new level of effectiveness and convenience with long lasting results. Lasers are the fastest and most efficient system for hair removal. Laser hair removal uses light energy to disable hundreds of hair follicles with each flash of light. Laser treatments are less painful and less costly than other alternatives. And you can return to normal routine activities instantly. It's easy to see why laser hair removal has gained extensive acceptance and is now the treatment of choice for both men and women.
Soprano ICE features Alma’s unique Alex Technology which combines the high absorption benefits of the Alexandrite 755nm wavelength with the treatment coverage, comfort and low maintenance of the diode laser. Advanced ICE technology cools the skin during treatment for longer periods of time, minimizing the risk of burns while maintaining heat within the dermis where hair follicles are treated. The result is a cutting-edge hair removal solution that delivers superior results for all skin types- including dark skin.
Together, the Soprano ICE platform offers the most complete and effective hair removal system available to date.
If you've answered "YES!" then laser hair removal might be the right decision
How does SHR ( Super Hair Removal) laser hair treatment work?
SHR works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicle and prevents re-growth, while not injuring surrounding tissue. Called IN-Motion, SHR combines high average power, low fluence, and a high repetition rate; gradually increasing the temperature of the hair follicle by stacking the laser pulses as the handpiece is continuously moved over the treatment area.
SHR gradually heats the skin until the required cumulative energy is delivered to the hair root. By not exposing the hair root to a single high energy pulse, SHR doesn't cause trauma to skin with high melanin count, making it one of the most reliable and effective laser hair removal options for dark skinned individuals. Furthermore, SHR treatment can be performed any time during the year, as sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following SHR treatment.
