Though removing unwanted body hair has been a practice in different cultures for centuries, it became popular in American culture in the 1920’s. Plucking, shaving, waxing, depilatory creams have all been common ways to remove hair, but none offer long term benefits. Laser Hair removal was first approved by the FDA in 1964, but did not come into the market as a long term solution until 1997. Since then, laser hair removal technology has evolved leaps and bounds and is now an affordable and viable solution for unwanted hair.

One of the most advanced laser hair removal systems available today is the Alma Soprano Ice. With so many laser hair removal devices out there, what makes the Alma Soprano Ice stand out as one of the most popular machines available? Let’s find out.

What is Alma Soprano Ice?

The Alma Soprano Ice utilizes diode laser technology to target the pigment in your hair follicles, firing a pulse of energy to destroy the hair follicle to slow and prevent future hair growth. Unlike traditional laser hair removal methods, the Soprano Ice has state-of-the-art technology that allows us to offer a safe, effective, efficient and comfortable treatment for anyone who is wanting an alternative to traditional methods.

1. A Comfortable Treatment

For many years, laser hair removal had a bad reputation for being extremely painful, and there was a time when it was just that!  Technology has come a long way and the Alma Soprano Ice is at the forefront in advancements. The Alma treatment is a comfortable, virtually pain-free experience. The Alma’s hand piece has a built-in cooling tip that ensures your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout the procedure. Laser Hair removal is a much more pleasant experience compared to past lasers and other laser hair removal methods available in today’s market. 

2. Alma is a Laser for All Skin Types

Many lasers (hair removal and other) are not safe to use on darker skin types and if used improperly can cause burns and pigmentation. The Alma Soprano Ice laser is specifically designed with safety in mind and also with the ability to be effective for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Alma’s innovative technology precisely targets the pigment in your hair follicles while minimizing damage and sensitivity to the surrounding skin.

3. Customized Treatments that are Safe, Fast and Effective

One of the things that make the Alma Soprano Ice unique is the hand piece which offers two ways to treat.

SHR – The in-motion treatment method allows us to treat a large area quickly and efficiently. With its large spot size and high repetition pulsing rate, the Soprano Ice hand piece glides across the treatment area targeting the pigment from hair follicles and sending a pulse of energy precisely where it needs to go to destroy that follicle.

HR – The Stamping method. When treating in a tight spot, in-motion may not be the most effective or comfortable. The HR treatment method allows your provider to hone in on smaller areas or areas that may not be flat.

Using both treatment types allows us to create a customized laser hair removal treatment that is effective, comfortable and safe.

4. Long-lasting Results

Unlike temporary hair removal methods like shaving, plucking, waxing, or depilatory creams, Alma Soprano Ice laser hair removal offers long-lasting results. After a recommended series of six treatments, most patients experience a significant reduction in hair growth, with many achieving a 90% permanent hair reduction. In some cases additional treatments are needed to obtain a patient’s desired results, but most move into a “maintenance” treatment plan. It is important to continue with maintenance treatments which can be every couple months to every 6-9 months and generally have longer spans between treatments over the years.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

To ensure the best outcome for laser hair removal, it is important to be well prepared and to have an honest discussion about any sun exposure, medications and updates on how your treatments are progressing between every session.

Here are some things you will want to do to prepare for your laser treatments:

· Shave within 24 hours prior to your laser hair removal appointment.

· No direct suntan, tanning beds or spray tan for 2 weeks before laser removal appointment.

· No waxing, bleaching or use of depilatory creams (Nair) while undergoing laser hair removal treatments.

· Make sure all lotions, creams and deodorants are removed before treatment.

· Avoid use of photosensitizing medications (I.e. Retin A, Alpha Hydroxy, Antibiotics or Glycolic acid) one week prior to appointment.

· If you have a history of Herpes Simplex Virus infection type 1 or 2, the risk of complication may be reduced if a prescribed antiviral medication is taken prior to and after each treatment.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

During the treatment, we use ultrasound gel to help glide the Soprano Ice hand piece over the treatment area. This gel also acts as a conductor to deliver controlled pulses of laser energy to the targeted follicles. The hand piece feels cold and will keep your skin comfortable. Most patients describe the sensation from the laser as a mild warmth or tingling and sometimes a flash of heat. Your provider will check in with you throughout your session to make sure you are comfortable and not experiencing extreme pain or discomfort.

Post Care is Important

Taking certain measures after a laser treatment is pivotal in a successful treatment and to ensure you don’t experience unnecessary irritation or discomfort.

· No hot showers, baths, hot tubs, exercise or swimming pools for 24-48 hours.

· No sun exposure

· Avoid applying cosmetics to the treated area until redness has subsided.

· Appearance of hair growth or shedding may be evident for 7-28 days post treatment. You can shave this hair between treatments.
