Laser Hair Removal Using Soprano XL Treatment FAQ's
Any medical laser procedure can be a bit intimidating at first. Learn more about Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ here, so you'll feel completely comfortable with the procedure.
How It's Different
The Soprano Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ laser 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 you stay comfortable.
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 laser technician performs each treatment and you are free to return to normal day to day activities immediately after each session.
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'sSoprano®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."
If you find it otherwise, talk with your doctor or laser technician.
