Laser Hair Removal with Soprano ICE Platinum
Safe Hair Removal (SHR) is Alma Laser’s proprietary hair removal method used in clinics around the world. It is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless.
The Laser Hair Removal Process
The Soprano ICE Platinum 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 motion technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while ICE technology cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually painless yet highly effective hair removal.
As lasers target the melanin pigment within the hair follicle, ginger, white or grey hair will not be affected by the laser, therefore treatment is unsuitible. The more melanin in the hair, the more effective the treatment tends to be. Very fine hair (vellus hair) may also not be the best candidate for laser hair removal because hair lacking sufficient density may not contain enough melanin for an effective result.
The Soprano ICE Platinum offers the combined benefit of the three most effective wavelengths for hair removal:
- Alex Technology: 755nm wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption making it ideal for the widest range of areas.
- Diode Technology: 810nm is the classic wavelength to offer deeper penetration of the hair follicle and high average power.
- YAG Technology: 1064nm wavelength offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle making it optimal solution for darker skin types and thicker, darker hair.
