Yes. Soprano ICE’s SHR method affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed any time of the year as well as on tanned skin. Furthermore, sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following SHR treatment.

Soprano ICE Platinum uses Alma Laser’s SHR method, which is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The unique heating and energy delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle while preventing injury and pain to the surrounding tissue. At the same time, integrated ICETMtech cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain.

For the best results, we recommend a course of 4 – 8 Laser Hair Removal Treatments with a gap of between 4 and 8 weeks between each appointment.

This is because the hair growth cycle occurs in three stages: growing, resting and transitional and a hair can only be targeted by the laser if it is in the growing stage, so not all hairs can be targeted in a single treatment.

Your practitioner will advise you at your consultation the best course for you to achieve optimum results.

Depends on the size of area treated – underarms or Bikini can take as little as 15 minutes, full body one hour.

Before or in between Laser Hair Removal treatments you are free to shave the area, in fact, we request you shave the treatment area the day before your appointment. We do advise against waxing as this can disrupt the hair growth cycle and make subsequent treatments less effective. Gradually you will notice the hair start to shed in the treated area, it will continue to grow as you progress through your course though this will noticeably reduce the more treatments you have.

There is very little if any recovery time, though you may have some redness following a treatment, this may last between one and eight hours. To help cool skin some patients require ice packs and we also recommend applying a soothing aloe vera lotion or aftersun to the skin following a treatment session.

For 24 hours after your treatment, you should avoid heat treatments, saunas and direct sun exposure, we recommend using sunblock on exposed areas. You should allow around 14-20 days for the hairs to fall out following your treatments, you can aid this process by exfoliating.
