What You Need To Know About Diode Laser Hair Removal
We use The Soprano laser at all locations, in Markham, Mississauga, Milton, Oakville, and Waterloo in Ontario, and in Orlando, Florida. One of the features that sets LightTouch Med Spa™ apart is our superior technology.
One key feature of The Soprano laser is that it provides a painless hair removal option, even for those with sensitive skin. What makes The Soprano laser far less painful than other hair removal options such as electrolysis or waxing, is its IN-motion™ technology. A combination of this technology and the cooling ICE tip allows our team of highly trained professionals to deliver high levels of energy without overheating or burning the skin.
Different skin types, colours, and hair colours will require varying degrees of energetic frequency. This is why it is important to have a trained professional treat you when it comes to laser hair removal.
SOPRANO™ LASER TECHNOLOGY
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.
We recommend booking a free consultation with a Medical Spa Director at any of our locations in Mississauga, Markham, Milton, Oakville, or Waterloo. 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 the like. Please be mindful that there are contraindications for laser hair removal that you’ll need to make our staff members 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 staff and be sure to ask your doctor if you think you are pregnant or are breastfeeding.
We require that you shave the area being treated before you come in for your appointment. We highly recommend shaving one day prior to your treatment.
Both you and our staff members are required to wear protective eyewear during all laser treatments, including laser hair removal. During a laser hair removal treatment, you can expect to feel a warm sensation as we use the Soprano laser on the area being treated.
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.
Does it hurt?
Laser hair removal using the Soprano system by Alma Lasers is pain-free. The energy levels are easy to adjust so we can tailor treatments to your comfort level and satisfaction.
Is laser hair removal safe? When should I avoid laser treatments?
Yes. Laser hair removal treatments by the Soprano Laser have been approved by Health Canada. With that being said, there are some contraindications such as: breastfeeding, pregnancy, sun exposed skin and sunburns, some medical conditions and medications, skin cancer, tattoos, and keloids. Please contact your family physician if you have any of the above conditions or are taking medications.
Are the results permanent?
For the most part, laser hair removal is a permanent solution. With that said, every individual is different and aging, side effects to medications, and hormonal changes can cause new hair growth in some cases.
What if I stop treatments?
If you decide to stop treatments before you’ve had eight sessions, you may find that you experience new unwanted hair growth.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, clients see best results after eight treatments. The number of treatments may vary from patient to patient.
Can I be treated if I’ve been in the sun?
If you’ve recently had direct sun exposure or you currently have a sunburn, we highly recommend waiting until you no longer have tanned skin or a sunburn until your next laser hair removal treatment.
Can I go in the sun after treatment?
We highly recommend avoiding direct sun exposure after your treatment for a few days up to a week to avoid sun damage.
