The Soprano ICE uses Alexandrite wavelength technology. The Alexandrite wavelength is a type of light energy emission that is transmitted through an alexandrite crystal. When the light energy is emitted through the Alexandrite crystal, it allows for better energy absorption by the melanin chromophore.

What can you expect?
Before The Treatment
During a consultation, you will discuss your skincare goals with your practitioner, as well as discuss the technology that we use, any health concerns that you may have, and all questions you’d like answered. Please be mindful that there are contraindications for laser hair removal that you’ll need to make our medical professionals aware of should they apply to you. For instance, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have Psoriasis, blood disorders, severe reactions to histamines, vitiligo, or have had procedures such as chemical peels recently. Ask our medical aesthetician and be sure to ask your doctor if you think you are pregnant or are breastfeeding.
We recommend shaving the area being treated before you come in for your appointment. With that being said, we do offering shaving services at an extra cost. Inquire about pricing before your treatment if this is something you’d like in addition to your treatment.
During The Treatment
Both you and our trained medical professionals are required to wear protective eye-wear during all laser treatments, including laser hair removal. During a laser hair removal treatment, you can expect to feel a warm sensation as the medical aesthetician uses the Soprano laser on the area being treated.
After The Treatment
1-2 weeks after your treatment you will notice that less hair will grow in than before. However, clients typically won’t see full results in one treatment alone, which is why we offer packages of eight treatments. After your first treatment, you can expect to wait four weeks until your next treatment. We highly recommend waiting four weeks in between each treatment to allow for one full hair growth cycle to occur.
