Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What are the advantages of Soprano ICE laser hair removal?

Imber Medical uses the most advanced, effective treatments, and the Soprano ICE all-in-one laser hair removal system is award-winning and virtually painless. It offers superior results with shorter treatment times and can be used for hair removal over large or small areas.

Whether you have dark or light skin or coarse or fine hair, this laser system allows for safe, quick, and comfortable sessions with a noticeable reduction in unwanted growth.

How can I prepare for laser hair removal?

Avoid all types of hair removal for four weeks before your first treatment (and for the duration of your treatment). Keep out of the sun and away from tanning beds for at least two days before your treatment.

Shave the areas of unwanted hair 12-24 hours before the laser hair removal appointment, keep your skin clean, and come to your session wearing no deodorant, creams, or perfumes.

Expect your session to take 10-45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area, or longer if you need multiple areas treated. The Imber Medical team will schedule your appointments every four to six weeks during your treatment.

How should I care for my skin after laser hair removal?

Following your treatment, avoid saunas, swimming, or prolonged sun exposure for a few days, and apply sunscreen if you must be outdoors. Be gentle with your skin, with no at-home hair removal, including waxing or plucking, and steer clear of harsh soaps or exfoliants.

Your skin recovers quickly, but for the first 24 hours, avoid using lotion, moisturizer, deodorant, or makeup. If the area itches or swells, you can apply a cold compress or aloe vera to soothe it.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

You’ll need multiple sessions to destroy the unwanted hair follicles gradually. Most patients require six to eight sessions for a 95% reduction in hair growth. Your treatment needs will vary based on your hair color, hormone levels, amount of hair, and so on.

That being said, you will see encouraging results long before completing six or more sessions. Within 30 days after your first treatment, the treated hair will begin to shed.
