What is Laser Hair Removal?
Say goodbye to unwanted hair with laser hair removal. This safe, effective, and less painful method of removing hair is fast and effective and removes unwanted hair permanently. New hair growth is rare after the laser permanently stuns the hair follicle. LifeHope Healing Med Spa offers laser hair removal services in areas such as arms, legs, back, chest, and face using Soprano ICE Platinum by Alma lasers.
Laser hair removal is the most popular hair removal method because it is fast, effective, and less painful than other methods of removing unwanted hair. The Soprano ICE Platinum laser hair removal system combines all the best features of laser hair removal. We are pleased to provide this comprehensive hair removal service at LifeHope Healing Med Spa in Alpharetta, GA.
Laser treatments are designed to target and destroy the hair follicle, typically located below the skin’s surface in the dermal layer. The hair follicle contains cells that produce hormones, oils, and proteins that contribute to our human body’s growth cycle. In this treatment, heat is used to remove the hair from the follicle, which needs several sessions to be successful. The more heat is applied to the hair during its growth cycle; the less hair grows from the follicle. You will probably need more than one treatment session to achieve the best results. To successfully target every follicle in your treatment area, we schedule your sessions a few weeks apart to accommodate your natural hair growth cycles. It may take up to six appointments for most patients to see results, but it may take longer for those who want to depilate a larger area.
How does it work?
Laser hair removal targets hair follicles. The laser converts light energy into heat energy as soon as it finds a root, which quickly destroys the hair follicle’s base. When the root dies, it can no longer produce hair. As a result, the remaining hair will fall from the root base.
The Soprano ICE Platinum hair removal device is a safe, quick, virtually painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. Soprano ICE Platinum by Alma lasers uses a new technique that combines cutting-edge technology with its simplicity and ease of use to provide a single-stop solution for hair removal that is genuinely effective. Using a unique gradual heating method, SHR can damage the hair follicles while avoiding injury to the surrounding skin.
With the sweeping In-motion delivery technique, the laser is kept in constant motion ensuring full coverage throughout the procedure. Short pulses are delivered at a high repetition rate deep into the dermis, generating high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up with virtually no pain. Soprano ICE Platinum laser combines three different wavelengths, resulting in a fast treatment that works on a wide range of skin types and hair types. As a result, these wavelengths simultaneously penetrate different skin depths and target multiple levels of hair follicles.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
The laser hair removal process is efficient and effective and provides a long-term solution for removing unwanted hair. We can treat any area of the body experiencing unwanted hair. The treatments are much faster than you might expect; treatment sessions are super-quick and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Treatments are not painful, but may feel uncomfortable.
As a result, you no longer need to buy razors, shaving cream, and waxing appointments. Laser hair removal is more cost-effective than shaving, takes less time, and results last longer.
Laser hair removal can also prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs are the result of the hair shaft curling back on itself and growing into the skin. The treatment can get rid of these ingrown hairs for good by removing them from below the skin’s surface. Also, laser hair removal is an excellent option for people with sensitive skin who experience skin irritation after shaving or waxing.
How much does Laser Hair Removal cost?
Laser hair removal pricing can vary depending on the part of your body being treated. We recommend a quick consultation to determine the cost of your hair removal treatment. You can discuss treatment details with our providers to obtain the results you desire.
LifeHope Healing Med Spa adheres to the highest standards. Your treatment will be tailored to your needs, and the cost will vary. With our team’s expertise, we can create a customized package that suits your needs and provide you with a more accurate treatment cost during your consultation.
How safe is laser hair removal?
The Soprano ICE Laser has an extensive history of research behind it and proves to be a great option for many people. It does a great job, but safety is its top priority. We are happy to let you know about an easy hair removal technique, but we also understand the need for transparency. If we determine this will not be the right fit for you, we will work together to find an alternative that will better suit your needs.
How many treatments will I need?
The majority of patients require four to six sessions. In most cases, patients will see results after three to six visits. Additionally, individual hairs grow in cycles, so treatments are spaced about every six weeks.
Can I get laser hair removal while I have a tan?
Laser hair removal should not be performed on tanned skin. One week prior to treatment, you should stop using sunless tanners. Please let us know if you would like some guidelines when using a tanning bed around the time of your laser treatment, since you may want to avoid the tanning bed for a couple of weeks following each appointment.
Does it work on all types of hair?
Soprano ICE Laser is an excellent laser for treating a wide variety of hair types, something that hasn’t really been seen in a single laser before. When considering whether this is the right treatment for you, it’s important to keep in mind that this laser isn’t as effective on light hair. We are more than happy to offer alternatives.
Is laser hair removal safe for darker skin?
Yes. In spite of the fact that melanin in dark skin is exponentially more sensitive to laser heat, Soprano ICE’s SHR method has been clinically proven to be safe for dark skin types. SHR gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicles instead of exposing the hair follicle to a single high-energy pulse. Because of this, SHR is the safest laser hair removal option, including for patients with dark skin.
