While you’ve undoubtedly heard about the perks of laser hair removal from friends, TV, and social media, you may not know these three facts about the procedure.

Grow Your Hair, Then Shave  the Day of Treatment

Laser hair removal systems like the Soprano ICE by Alma Lasers work their magic by targeting the pigment, or melanin, in each hair. As the melanin absorbs the laser’s heat energy, hair follicles become severely damaged and unable to continue the hair growth cycle. It is for this reason that experts recommend letting your hair grow in the days and weeks leading up to your laser hair removal appointment.

The less that you interfere with the hair growth cycle, the better the chances that the laser can effectively target hair follicles. Though it’s impossible to zap every single hair follicle during the first treatment since hair naturally grows in varying cycles, letting your hair grow can improve efficiency. However, you do need to shave your hair on the day of treatment so that the laser energy can focus directly on hair follicles and make the most progress.

Look Forward to a Few Appointments

Since laser hair removal delivers results by gradually reducing the amount of hair that grows onto the skin, more than one appointment is necessary to achieve your desired outcome. While smaller, more delicate areas of the body like the face or the armpits might respond more rapidly, larger targets like the chest and legs will likely require a few more appointments to fully wipe away unwanted hair. The good news is that with advanced laser systems like Soprano ICE, treatments are lightning fast, painless, and surprisingly simple. You won’t need to inconvenience yourself or your schedule to get the results you want.

Laser Hair Removal Can Work on All Skin Types

Some lasers only work on light skin that has dark hair, but more advanced laser systems such as Soprano ICE use sophisticated wavelength technology to generate better energy absorption by the melanin chromosphere, allowing a wide range of hair types and skin colors to respond effectively to laser hair removal treatment. No more limitations!
