Laser epilation

Increased hairiness is a problem that plagues a large number of women, as well as men. It is most often a cosmetic problem, which also has a strong psychological impact on a person. Laser epilation – hair removal is a medical procedure in which unwanted hair is removed with a laser, which creates an intensely pulsating beam of a precisely determined wavelength. Razors, wax or depilation cream have become an integral part of the life of every woman who wants to keep her skin smooth and hair-free. However, modern and increasingly advanced methods allow you to get rid of them forever, with the use of special lasers!

Thanks to the innovative, most advanced technologies integrated into Alma Soprano ICE hair removal lasers, treatments to remove unwanted hair are painless, faster than before, safe for all skin types at any time of the year and allow the removal of even lighter hairs.

Alma Soprano ICE model 2017

  • It has probes that generate laser beams in multiple wavelengths Alex 755 nm and Speed 810 nm, which enables the treatment of all skin types at any time of the year
  • Soprano ICE uses the SHR method of the Alma laser. A large number of short laser pulses penetrate the dermis, which cumulatively achieve the necessary temperature for hair removal, and at the same time it does not cause pain because it does not heat the surrounding region and tissue
  • Special ICE™ technology, integrated in Soprano ICE, strongly and effectively cools the surface of the skin, which prevents the feeling of pain and surface damage to the skin and burns
  • In-motion technique implies repetitive movement of the applicator over the treated area, which enables better coverage of the region being epilated, and additionally makes the treatment itself much more pleasant than the technique used by earlier lasers.


To achieve this, the laser energy must penetrate several millimeters into the skin to reach the root of the hair. As soon as it reaches the melanin (pigment) in the hair, the light is absorbed and turns into heat that destroys the hair.

The darker, thicker and denser the hair, the greater the absorption. Only the hairs in the growth phase are destroyed, so to achieve a complete result, the treatment needs to be repeated 4 to 6 times.

The result of the treatment also depends on possible endocrinological problems and the client’s genotype. In order to achieve the greatest effectiveness, it is important to agree on a treatment plan with a specialist, depending on your skin and hair type. Occasional maintenance treatments may also be required. Legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, bikini area, intimate area and hands are most often treated with lasers. However, unwanted hair can be removed from almost any part of the body, except for the eyelids and the eyeball area.

Preparing the patient

  • Shave the hair 12 hours before the treatment.
  • Avoid tanning. If you have darkened, either from exposure to the sun or self-tanners, wait 7-10 days for your complexion to return to its natural shade before undergoing the treatment.
  • Avoid anti-cellulite treatments for up to 4 weeks before the treatment. Furthermore, antibiotic treatments for inflammatory acne are also contraindicated and at least 4-6 weeks should pass after the cessation of therapy.
  • Do not pluck the hairs, or depilate them with wax or an electric epilator 4-6 weeks before the treatment. Such hair removal treatments can disrupt the hair follicle and affect permanent laser removal.
  • Remove make-up and deodorant.
  • If you have been treated with hyaluronic filler, laser treatment can accelerate the resorption of the filler

General contraindications

  • Cancer, especially skin cancer; autoimmune diseases, skin diseases
  • Pregnancy (including IVF) and lactation
  • Use of photosensitive drugs
  • Diseases that can be stimulated by light
  • Longer exposure to the sun or artificial tanning 3 to 4 weeks before and after treatment
  • Active herpes simplex infection in the area to be treated
  • History of keloid scars
  • Fragile and dry skin
  • Hormonal disorders (which are stimulated under bright light) or therapy with corticosteroid drugs, as well as taking hormonal and protein supplements
  • Use of anticoagulants
  • Epilepsy
  • History of coagulopathy.
  • It is necessary to avoid treatment on tattoos and areas with permanent makeup.

Note: Laser hair removal treatments can alter the appearance of tattoos and permanent makeup. If you have a tattoo on the part of your skin that you want to treat, you should avoid the tattoo area!

Course of treatment

After applying the hydrogel, the laser handle is placed against the skin and moved over the area to be treated. Permanent hair removal treatment is very pleasant thanks to the skin cooling system built into the laser. You may feel a slight warmth or burning sensation during the treatment.

It is important to undergo the treatment several times at an interval of 4 weeks for facial treatments and 6 to 8 weeks on other parts of the body for the reason that hair grows in certain phases and the melanin that contains the base of the hair is connected to the root only in the growth phase .

Different types of hair in this phase are always found at different times. Which means that it depends from person to person how many laser hair removal treatments are needed and how often
