What You Need To Know About Laser Hair Removal
We use painless, fast, and effective technology!
We offer an effective pain-free approach to hair removal using the Soprano Laser by Alma.
In the past many people chose not to get laser hair removal because of the pain associated with the treatments. Thanks to the Soprano by Alma, those days are gone! In fact, our clients describe their laser hair removal treatments as comfortable and relaxing.
The Soprano Laser has become the most popular technology available as it is safe and effective for individuals of all ages and skin types. It is the gold-standard of laser hair removal utilizing cutting-edge technology creating a comfortable laser hair removal option.
What makes the Soprano different from other laser hair removal systems?
The biggest difference is the Soprano’s unique IN-Motion™ technology. Rather than conventional laser machines that utilize a painful ‘stamping’ technique to deliver the energy to the hair, the Soprano delivers the energy in a constant moving ‘sweeping’ motion of the laser tip, resulting in gentle, comfortable heating of the skin. The Soprano ICE also has the added advantage of a patented DualChill™ mechanism to ensure the patient’s skin stays cool and comfortable during treatments.
In addition to IN-Motion™ technology, the Soprano Platinum ICE combines the benefits of all three wavelengths, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicle. Using three wavelengths keeps the treatment controlled, targeted, safe, and painless. Additionally, it ensures that treatments will be effective for those who have a fair complexion and hair colour.

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 aestheticians 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.
Both you and our trained medical aesthetician 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.
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.
