How does Laser hair removal work?
Laser light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.
How is treatment carried out?
The Laser light is aimed at the body area to be treated and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The Laser is then moved to the adjacent area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Most people are suitable. Best results are seen with people who have light skin and dark hair. Dr Leah Clinic offers the Alexandrite Soprano Ice Laser which is effective in treating fairer hair types. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
Is laser hair removal a lasting treatment method?
The Soprano laser hair removal system can offer significant, long-term results.*
Is laser hair removal safe?
The Soprano laser hair removal system is clinically proven to be both safe and effective.
Do you use IPL hair removal?
The Soprano hair removal system is not an IPL system – it is a superior machine and the best on the market for effective hair reduction.
What does laser treatment feel like?
The Soprano ICE is a state of the art procedure, a Diode laser specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, more comfortably, and with fewer visits than ever before. It gradually heats the hair follicle whilst the handpiece is passed over the same area constantly. It is said to feel like a hot stone massage.
How long does it take?
The Soprano Ice is the fastest laser available with treatment taking as little as 5 minute on smaller areas.
Are there any side effects of laser hair removal treatment?
The skin can appear slightly red after treatments and the hair follicles which have been treated may appear raised or bumpy for up to 48 hours. Itching can occur in some individuals several days after treatment which tends to be mild and subside. Other side effects are rare.
How many treatments are required?
Treatment is conducted every 4 weeks on the face and 6 weeks on the body. The required number of treatments differs from patient to patient, generally 6-8 sessions are needed for optimum results.*
