Humans are fairly hairy creatures, but many people prefer a well-groomed, meticulous appearance that doesn’t include much body or facial hair. People spend significant amounts of time and money on shaving, painful waxing, or smelly depilatory creams to achieve a hair-free look. You can remove unwanted hair for good at Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics.
The Soprano ICE Hair Removal Laser
Hair follicles exist in 3 phases: dormancy, transition, and active growth. The Soprano ICE laser hair removal system targets active hair follicles through dual wavelength technology. Targeting the base of the follicle at its base, Soprano ICE delivers low energy at a high frequency to gradually heat the hair, damaging its structure and thereby preventing its growth. The Soprano ICE handpiece is not uncomfortable to the touch, with a cold metal housing surrounding the laser window for maximum patient comfort and minimal heat directly to the skin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
In the past, not all lasers were effective for everybody because the lasers targeted the pigment within the hair. Soprano ICE is effective for a wide variety of skin tones, types, and hair colors and thicknesses. The laser’s super hair removal technology can target even light hair or dark or tanned skin. As such, many patients qualify for Soprano ICE laser hair removal treatments.
What Can I Expect During and After Treatment?
The length of your treatment depends on the size and number of areas being treated, but treatments are fast. Even the largest areas like the back or chest and abdomen can be treated in less than 12 minutes. For several weeks following your Soprano ICE treatment, hair will gradually fall out at the root, replaced by sparser, thinner new hair growth. The body responds to the lost hair by kicking the inactive and transitioning follicles into the growth phase, which is why patients typically require 4-6 treatments spaced between 4 and 6 weeks apart. Once all the follicles have reached the growth phase and have been treated, the treatment area should be smooth and hair-free. No more need for smelly creams, lengthy morning shaving routines, or painful and expensive waxing treatments.
Laser Hair Removal Consultations Available
Pain is a frequent concern, and Soprano ICE is one of the most comfortable laser hair removal systems out there. Patients may, however, experience mild swelling and redness after treatments, but these typically resolve within a few hours. Sunscreen and minimal sun exposure is critical during the entire treatment protocol to keep your skin as healthy as possible and healing properly.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
According to RealSelf.com, the average expense for laser hair removal is $875. Prices differ depending on practitioner expertise, location, size and number of treatment areas, and number of treatments required. The range varies widely, from $25 to $3,000, with the low end reflecting the price of a single treatment of a small area, and the high end including multiple treatments of a large area.
Laser hair removal requires persistence and patience to see it through.
