What is ‘Soprano Ice Laser’?
Ice laser is a hair removal treatment, performed in a clinic using the Soprano ICE Platinum device. The machine gradually heats the dermis to a temperature that effectively ‘kills’ the hair follicle and prevents hair growth. The part of the device that comes in contact with the skin is ice cold, to keep the skin’s surface comfortable while it targets the follicles.
What is the difference between ‘Ice laser’ and other laser devices?
1. The cold tip: It really is very cold when it first comes in contact with the skin, so it takes a long time for you to even notice it’s heating up.
2. A gel is applied and there’s constant contact with the skin: Each area is prepped with a clear gel (similar to an ultrasound), and then the device is placed on the area to which the technician glides it over the skin in quick motions until the treatment of that area is completed. Unlike other laser device techniques, where it is lifted in between each jolt of laser and they can’t go over the same area, the ice laser covers the entire area multiple times and is very thorough.
3. Less painful: Traditional IPL can feel like you’re being flicked with a hot rubber band, but with ice laser the main thing you feel is heat. It’s kept quite comfortable and warms up slowly.
4. It can be used on most skin and hair types: Yes, even tanned skin. While previous types of lasers have preferred light skin and dark hairs for optimal treatment, the Soprano ICE can be used successfully on deeper skin tones, as well as finer, lighter hairs.
