DD Clinical is the first clinic in Chester to be offering the new state-of-the-art laser treatment called the Soprano Ice Titanium Laser. This virtually pain-free laser treatment is the latest advancement in laser hair removal technology from Almas Lasers, and has proven to be effective, safe and provides outstanding results.
The Alma Soprano Ice Titanium laser machine can safely treat different types of skin all year round, including tanned skin and different tones of skin from very fair to the darkest.
This new breakthrough technology with a new cooling system, means the treatment times are much faster so you can visit us during your lunch hour for a session at our clinic in Chester.
The laser hair removal treatment has been medically proven to be the most effective method of reducing and removing unwanted hair in men and women and can be used on nearly all parts of the body.
Waxing and shaving are both traditional methods that provide temporary solutions, but over time it can be quite time-consuming and expensive.
At DD Clinical, we aim to provide our clients with long-lasting solutions so you can wake up feeling great every morning.
If you’ve had poor results from laser hair removal treatments in the past, then come and experience the difference at DD Clinical with the new Soprano Ice Titanium laser machine. Book a consultation today.

A course of 6-8 treatments should result in a permanent reduction of hair growth for the vast majority of clients. A good responder will expect to see a 60-90% reduction in hair growth.
At the beginning of your course, we go through an in depth consultation covering all aspects of the treatment including the results you can expect.
Soprano Ice Titanium emits 3 different laser light wavelengths simultaneously during each treatment. Each wavelength penetrates a different depth into the skin to damage different parts of the hair follicle, root and bulb, resulting in drastically reduced hair growth.
Other lasers, including standard Soprano Ice only emit 1 laser wavelength (and in some cases 2 wavelengths). This means that the Soprano Ice Titanium treatment is more effective in reducing and eliminating hair growth than other laser systems.
As Soprano Ice Titanium is passed back and forth over the area to be treated several times so that energy and heat builds up gradually rather than using the old fashioned ‘shots’ method, this treatment is safer and virtually pain free when compared to other laser systems.
The Soprano Ice Titanium is suitable to treat all skin types from 1-6 on the Fitzpatrick scale and is also suitable and safe to treat tanned skin.
As lasers target the brown melanin pigment within the hair follicle, ginger, white or grey hair will not be affected by the laser. The more melanin in the hair, the more effective the treatment tends to be. Very fine hair will not be the best candidate for laser hair removal because hair lacking sufficient density may not contain enough melanin for an effective result.
Yes. There is an extremely low risk of complications when our experienced practitioners operate the laser for a given skin type following the correct treatment protocols. The Soprano Ice Titanium system is one of the safest on the market, as rather than delivering all the laser energy in shots such as with traditional laser systems, the applicator is passed back and forth over the area to be treated so that energy and warmth builds up over a few seconds. This gives you a measure of control over the heat you experience.
The Soprano ICE Titanium incorporates Alma’s SHR method, ensuring safe and comfortable hair removal. Rather than exposing hair follicles to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to the skin, SHR works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue.
A high repetition rate of short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up. The sweeping In-motion technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while the new and improved Titanium ICE super cooling technology cools the skin surface – preventing discomfort and side effects and allowing for virtually painless yet highly effective hair removal.
The Soprano ICE Titanium offers the benefit of the three most effective wavelengths for hair removal:
It has 2 treatment hand-pieces – the same 2cm unit as the Soprano Ice Platinum system plus a new 4cm hand-piece which shortens treatemnt time by 40-50% when treating larger areas such as legs, arms, chest, stomach, back and shoulders.
Laser hair removal will only treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth, roughly 10-15% of the hair in any particular area will be at this phase at any time.
Each treatment, 4-8 weeks apart will treat different hairs at this stage of their life cycle so you should see a roughly 10-15% reduction in hair per treatment.
Most people will go for 6 to 8 treatments per area, possibly more for more resistant areas such as the face or private area.
Top ups may be required.
It is necessary to shave any area prior to laser treatment to ensure the session is safe and effective. The optimal time to shave is around 8 hours before your appointment time. This allows your skin time to calm down and any redness to fade while still leaving a smooth surface for the laser to treat.
If hair has not been shaved, the laser will mainly heat up the hair outside the skin rather than the root structures as required. This will not be comfortable, presents an increased risk of side effects and will also result in the treatment being ineffective or less effective. Anyone arriving for a laser treatment unshaven may not be able to receive a treatment.
Avoid prolonged sun exposure/sun bathing of the treatment area for 2 days before and after treatment. Use sunscreen SPF 30 or greater at all times throughout the course of your treatment.
After treatment you may experience mild redness or slight sensitivity. Aloe Vera gel is excellent to calm and soothe the skin and works well straight from the fridge. For any areas treated that are exposed to sunlight, you should protect your skin with a factor 30-50 SPF sunscreen. Ask your practitioner for more information on post-care products.
After the laser treatment avoid heat such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam rooms. Avoid vigorous exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation.
The DD team is always available to provide continuing advice and support even after your final session is complete.
