Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures for effective unwanted hair removal. If you are not happy with shaving, tweezing or waxing, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.

Soprano XL

Our laser hair removal machine is a pain free laser that is specifically designed to remove unwanted hair fast and comfortably.

Women especially put a lot of effort into getting their skin irresistibly smooth, through waxing, shaving and plucking, but, investing in laser treatments to slow down body hair growth helps everyone stay smoother for longer.

Surprisingly, many men opt for this hair removal treatment as it’s becoming increasingly popular in both female and male grooming regimes.

Laser treatments is one of the most effective and safe, long-term solution for stopping excessive hair growth and removing unwanted hair.
Excessive and unwanted hair growth is a common problem for men and women and normally down to inheretied genes or due to hormonal changes. Laser hair removal is a suitable method for treating areas of both the face and body.

Plus, after a full course of treatments the rate of hair growth will be dramatically reduced; eventually leading to lasting removal in the treatment area!

About Soprano® XL

While there are many methods to eliminate unwanted hair (shaving, waxing and plucking) very few can eliminate hair regrowth without harming the surrounding skin.

The Soprano XL laser specifically targets cells responsible for regrowth. It passes light through the skin and directly to the regrowth cells. The light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft and causes the root of the hair to die.

Our laser gently and safely heats targeted hair follicles until they can no longer produce new hair.

The gentle pulses of laser energy damages the hair follicle and prevents re-growth without injuring or damaging the surrounding skin. The hair falls out, and leaves you hair-free in the treated area.

This treatment slows the rate of the hair growth as it targets the direct source, rather than just trimming the hair on the surface. The Soprano XL laser can treat nearly any part of the body, and best of all, it’s pain free.

The Hair Growth Cycle

The growth of Human Hair occurs near enough everywhere on the body.

Hair grows from the follicle, or root, underneath the skin. The hair is “fed” by blood vessels at the base of the follicle, which gives it the nourishment it needs to grow.

Each hair passes through four stages, which are; Anagen, Catagen, Telogen and Exogen. Every hair is at a different stage of the growth cycle.

Image of the stages of hair growth on the body

Stage 1: Anagen (Growing Phase)
The Anagen Phase is known as the growing phase. It begins with the papilla and it determines the length of the hair.

During this phase the cells in the papilla divide to produce new hair fibres and the follicle buries itself into the dermal layer of the skin to nourish the strand.

Stage 2: Catagen (Transition Phase)
The Catagen Phase is known as the transitional stage that lasts about ten days. The hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla.

Stage 3: Telogen (Resting Phase)
The Telogen Phase is known as the resting phase. Whilst the old hair is resting, below a new hair begins the growth phase in replacement of the previous hair strand.

Stage 4: Exogen (New Hair Phase)
The Exogen Phase is known as the part of the resting phase where the old hair sheds, or you shave/wax/pluck the hair you can see on the surface of the skin, and new hair slightly underneath still continues to grow.

The Procedure

Before your treatment, any hair that is too long will be trimmed shorter, and strength of the laser will be adjusted to the setting required. This will depend on the colour, thickness and location of the hair being treated as well as your skin colour.

The technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings are used and to check for bad reactions.

Eye protection may be required for you and your technician during your treatment. However this will depend on the strength the laser is set to. A cold gel may also be applied in sensitive areas for extra protection and to help the laser light penetrate the skin.

Once the procedure is complete, your technician may recommend an anti-inflammatory cream or cold water to take away any discomfort. You can then schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later.

Treatments will continue until hair stops growing in the treated area.

Please be aware: Laser hair removal is more than just zapping away unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform.

This treatment is carried out by our fully qualified Aesthetic Practitioners who have been specially trained in performing laser hair removal treatments.

After each laser hair removal session the rate you hair grows will be reduced in the treated area. Hair will take longer to grow back, and if you continue with your treatments, the hair can stop growing.

Results can last a year or so, however, having long term treatments can result in hair removal.
