Laser Hair Removal 

Laser Preparation:

  • Physical exam. Have the clinic practitioner examine you, review medical history and discuss expectations.

  • Tanning. You should avoid tanning beds, and also fake tans for at least 2 weeks prior to hair removal treatment. Tanning products contain high levels of melanin.
    Though the Soprano laser is considered safe for tanned and darker color skin types we recommend not overwhelming your skin.

  • Perfumes. Please refrain from using irritant substances on the treatment area prior to the treatment and after it.

  • Waxing, dying, bleaching and threading. Avoid those prior to treatment to improve your chances to achieve permanent hair reduction.

Besides, why bother waxing when you are going to your laser appointment?

Please advise the practitioner whether you have received any cosmetic injections in the treated area in the past 6 months.

  • Medication. Some prescription drugs such as certain antibiotics are photo-sensitive. This might cause hyperpigmentation is some cases. Therefor you must notify the practitioner if you are taking such medicine. To find out whether it is safe please refer to your physician.

  • Shaving. You should shave prior to treatment. Why is that? Experienced practitioners in leading laser clinics point out that if there is some stubble left the exposed hair tips can make the area heat much quicker. Also, laser clinics practitioners who use the Soprano mostly utilize the "in motion" technique. If the treatment area is not shaved, the should be virtually pain-free. Some areas might be a bit more sensitive, however if you feel too much pain you should notify the practitioner. The technician can easily adjust energy levels.

  • Treatment time. Your session can take from 10 min. up to a full hour. That depends first on whether you are treating a specific area or several ones.
    The new hand-piece on the Soprano Titanium laser enables quick coverage of large areas reducing treatment time in half!

  • Redness and swelling. The hair follicle might swell and the skin around it might be a little red which is normal and resides within 24 hours.

  • Sunscreen. We recommend using a SPF 30/50 sunscreen on the treated area for
    no less than a week after treatment. That is important in order to protect your skin which will be more sensitive to sun damage. Especially if directly exposed to damage. Especially if directly exposed to sunlight for an extended amounts of time (mostly in summer).
