Laser Hair Reduction

Laser Hair Reduction is recommended for  dark hair anywhere on the body.

To be hair free for the long run, laser, particularly the Alma Soprano XL, plays a central role in hair removal with superb results. Painless hair removal, fast, and effective are how clients report time and again their experience after being treated with the Soprano XL.

This revolutionary new diode laser provides effective laser hair reduction as it safely and gently protects the epidermis while destroying the hair follicle, all without topical pain preparations.

The Soprano XL works in motion, with a sweeping technique that eliminates a common problem of missed or skipped spots. The comprehensive coverage means smooth legs, arms, backs and stomachs quickly and without the normal pain associated with laser hair reduction.

How Laser Hair Reduction Works

Laser hair reduction works by directing the laser light to a group of hair follicles, using enough power to disable or destroy the root without harming the surrounding skin. This process is called selective photo thermolysis. It is selective because it targets only the hair and not the skin. Photo means light and thermolysis means destroying with heat. The surrounding skin is cooled.

What to Expect

The result: a 50-80% ( or better ) reduction in unwanted hair. Hair is natural to your body and it grows in three different stages. At any given time, not all hairs are growing and lasers are only effective in targeting the growing hairs. In practice, no laser destroys all of the hair follicles. Some follicles are destroyed, while others are reduced to fine hairs or shocked into prolonged dormancy. Multiple treatments provide the best results.

Is Laser Hair Reduction Permanent?

Hair is natural to your body and it grows in three stages. At any given time not all hairs are growing. Lasers are most effective at targeting growing hairs in the anagen stage. In practice, no laser destroys all of the hair follicles. Some follicles are destroyed, while others are miniaturized into fine hairs, and others are shocked into prolonged dormancy.

Multiple treatments are needed for best results, and the best interval for retreatment depends on the hair cycle growth patterns in that area of the body. It is possible that with a sufficient number of treatments true “permanent hair reduction” can ultimately be achieved, but not for every single hair present in a given area.

Be advised that both the FDA and the TGA cleared lasers for permanent hair reduction and not permanent hair removal, which is advertised by many clinics.
