What You Need to Know About Hair Removal Devices
When it comes to the world of hair removal, it is fair to say that some devices are simply better than others. For example, diode laser hair removal systems by Alma Lasers far surpass the capabilities of at-home hair removal devices. In fact, we highly recommend using any system by Alma Lasers over at-home technology, as the results have proven to be much more effective and safe. We also suggest working with a highly trained professional to conduct your hair removal treatments as training and education will ensure that you get the results that you want, without potentially damaging your skin.
The Soprano ICE™
The Soprano ICE™ is a multi-wavelength platform that includes 810 diode and Alexandrite laser technology. With many years of clinically proven effectiveness, this technology is FDA cleared for skin types I – VI and tanned skin. The Soprano ICE™ offers fast, cool, and painless treatments thanks to its cooling and IN-Motion™ technology. This light is one of the few hair removal devices that we stand behind 100% as it offers permanent reduction in long-term hair growth measured at 6, 9, and 12 months after completion of treatment protocol.
Why at-home hair removal devices and systems aren’t the best option
The Soprano ICE™ offers superior technology and results that at-home hair removal devices simply can’t match.
At-home hair removal products, such as creams and gels are often messy, full of chemicals, and don’t offer permanent results.
Laser or light at-home devices are discouraged unless you are a certified medical aesthetician or a cosmetic nurse. There are contraindications for these types of treatments, depending on which method you choose. For example, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not have any laser or intense pulsed light treatments until after pregnancy and breastfeeding has ceased.
Furthermore, there are side-effects caused by some hair removal devices. If an untrained individual is conducting laser hair removal treatments, the person receiving treatment is at risk of enduring burns, scabbing, and hyperpigmentation. We strongly recommend booking an appointment for a free consultation with one of our highly trained, professional staff members to learn everything you need to know about hair removal devices and treatments before you make the decision to move forward with treatments.
Why is diode laser hair removal better than IPL for hair removal?
Diode laser hair removal is more effective than IPL treatments, especially for those with darker skin. If the pigment in your skin is too dark, or, if the melanin is too light, IPL (intense pulsed light) often won’t pick up on the hair. Diode laser hair removal using the Soprano laser system is highly effective at picking up on and destroying the follicle for any hair colour and any skin type.
