What is Laser Hair Removal with Soprano ICE Platinum?

By targeting the hair follicle with various laser wavelengths when the hair is in its active phase of growth, the heat energy from the laser destroys the hair follicle, while reducing blood circulation to the hair follicle making this extremely effective. There is no damage to the surrounding tissues.

At Health & Aesthetics, we use the FDA approved, world leading Soprano ICE platinum. This combines the benefit of three wavelengths in one handpiece giving it a superior efficacy and treatment for all skin types. As different tissue depths are targeted, the Soprano ICE platinum targets various structures of the hair follicle, causing damage and preventing hair re-growth.

Soprano ICE platinum uses ICE technology which cools the skin effectively to prevent burns, pigmentation and pain meaning it is comfortable and effective.

This gold standard of laser hair removal combines three wavelengths (alexandrite, diode and Nd-yag) to gradually heat the skin while not damaging the surrounding tissues. The average person reports an 80% lasting reduction after 6-8 treatments which require 1 or 2 maintenance treatments per year.

Before & After Gallery

“Friendly & Professional”, Female Patient (48)

“I would highly recommend my therapist, Charlotte, who maintains a professional persona whilst managing to be personable during a very intimate procedure. I wanted to change my appointment the other day due to car problems and was offered a different appointment with another therapist. I did not take this option and it made me realise how comfortable Charlotte makes me feel. She has the right balance of being friendly/professional and although I don’t usually fill out surveys I wanted to say a big thank you to her.”

“Professionally run”, Female Patient (32)

“The clinic is so professionally run and everyone makes you feel so welcome. They are also very accommodating when you need to move appointments around. Bianca was fantastic, extremely professional and very knowledgeable!”

Frequently Asked Questions

At Health & Aesthetics, we typically recommend between 6-8 treatments however this depends on your skin and hair type. After the treatment course is complete, we recommend patients have a 6 monthly maintenance session to prevent any new hair growth.

Staying out of the sun and using a high-quality SPF is essential for those undertaking Soprano ICE Platinum. This reduces the risk of pigmentation. Avoid heat treatments for 5 days after the treatment to prevent any damage to the skin.

The average person will see an approximate 50% reduction in hair growth after three laser hair removal treatments and up to an 80% lasting reduction after six to eight treatments.

However, results vary between individuals.
After you have completed a series of six to eight treatments any remaining hair will usually be finer in texture and lighter in colour. Most patients will then require one or two maintenance treatments per year.

Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and best researched laser treatments. The Soprano ICE Platinum laser is safe, successful and approved by the FDA.

The short answer is no. Once we damaged the hair follicle, it cannot grow new hair. However, there will inevitably be a few hair follicles that manage to escape the laser during each treatment. We suggest periodic, occasional maintenance treatments for optimal long-lasting results.

It is essential to use a broad spectrum SPF after any laser treatment to reduce the risk of pigmentation. This is available for the body with ColoreScience products and ZO Skin Health by Dr Zein Obagi.
