Laser Hair Removal – Soprano XL

pain_free_logoPain-Free, Hair-Free is the next-generation of laser hair removal. It’s an effective and permanent hair reduction solution that is simple and easy. This breakthrough technology has been described as one of the most comfortable laser hair removal options available. The Pain-Free, Hair-Free treatment can free you from daily shaving, painful plucking and expensive waxing to give you silky smooth and beautifully bare skin – permanently.

Who It’s For

Pain-Free, Hair-Free is for everyone. It’s safe for all skin types, hair types and most hair colors. It can even be used on tanned skin. The bottom line is, if you have hair where you wish you didn’t, Pain-Free, Hair-Free is for you.

The treatment process is permanent, predictable, and virtually pain-free. You’ll go through a series of office visits to see the full benefits.

Where It’s For

Patients seek treatment for almost any body part, including legs, arms, bikini line, backs, stomachs, face or neck.

What You Can Expect

You can expect results from a series of relatively short sessions. (The actual time depends mainly on the size of the area you are having treated.) A trained doctor, nurse or laser technician performs each treatment and you are free to return to normal activities immediately after each session.

Because of Pain-Free, Hair-Free’s unique technology, treatment sessions can be virtually pain-free. Other benefits include:

  • Complete coverage with no missed spots
  • Fast treatment times
  • Few side effects
  • Return to normal activities immediately (no recovery or “down time”)
  • Safe for all skin types, including tanned skin

How It’s Different

Pain-Free, Hair-Free breaks the mold of previous laser hair removal systems. The system’s unique IN-Motion™ technology, along with the sweeping motion of the laser, safely and gently heats the targeted area under your skin while the surface of your skin stays cool throughout your treatment.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is it safe?

Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers. Pain-Free, Hair-Free’s Soprano®XL laser has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

How many treatments will I need?

There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you’ll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Typically, it will require 4–6 treatments or more to permanently reduce the number of regrowing hairs by more than 80%, six months after the last treatment. 

Will my hair ever grow back?

The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may be only stunned and will need to be retreated.

Do I need to plan for time off, for the treatments?

No. Pain-Free, Hair-Free requires no “down time” or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

How do I know it won’t hurt?

Most people find Pain-Free, Hair-Free very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage”. 

PRE-APPOINTMENT INSTRUCTIONS

  • Shave ONLY the area to be treated – DO NOT wax, thread, pluck, or have electrolysis performed one month prior to the treatment.
  • Do not wear make up, sunscreen, deodorant, perfumes or lotions to your appointment.
  • Avoid using any tretinoin (Retin-A) type products, microdermabrasion or dermal planing of the skin 3 days prior to the treatment.
