The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs energy from the laser while the hair is in its active phase of growth. The laser energy is converted into heat which destroys the hair follicle without harming the surrounding tissue. The hair follicle is then unable to grow new hair.
The Soprano ICE Platinum, at Health and Aesthetics, uses the benefit of three wavelengths in a single hand piece. Hence, different tissue depths are targeted so that different structures within the hair follicle are targeted. The three main targets are the bulge, bulb and papilla. The different wavelengths are Alexandrite (755nm), Diode (810nm) and Yag (1064nm).
The laser works by gradually heating up the skin to a temperature that damages the hair follicles and prevents hair re-growth and also avoids injury to the surrounding tissues.
The technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area – In-Motion – means that the area is fully covered.
The tip is very cool – ICE technology – cools the skin surface and prevents burns, pigmentation changes and allows the treatment to be virtually painless but very effective for hair removal.
The Soprano ICE Platinum is the gold standard for laser hair removal.
