Increased hairiness is a problem that many women and men are struggling. Most often it represents a cosmetic problem, which also has a strong psychological impact on the person. Brushes, wax or depilation cream have become an integral part of the life of any woman who wants to keep the skin smooth and without hair. But modern and increasingly advanced methods allow you to solve them forever, using special lasers!
Thanks to innovative, most advanced technologies integrated in Alma Soprano ICE epilation lasers, treatments for the removal of unwanted hair are painless, faster than before, safe for all skin types at any time of the year and allow the removal of even shiny hair.
Alma Soprano ICE model 2017
- It has probes that generate laser beams in multiple wavelengths of Alex 755 nm and Speed 810 nm, which enables the treatment of all types of skin at any time of the year
- Soprano ICE uses the SHR method of Alma Laser. The dermis penetrates a large number of short laser pulses to cumulatively achieve the required temperature for the removal of hairs, while not producing pain as it does not warm the surrounding region and tissue
- Special ICE ™ technology, integrated into Soprano ICE, strongly and efficiently cools the surface of the skin, which prevents the pain and surface damage of the skin and burns
- In-motion technique implies the repeated movement of the applicator over the treated area, which enables better coverage of the epileptic region itself, and additionally makes the treatment much more comfortable than the technique used by the previous lasers.
ALL THIS DIFFERES ALMA LASERS FROM COMPETITIVE LASERS; DOING THREATS FREE AND EFFECTIVE AS ONE TO THE USA
To achieve this, the laser energy must penetrate several millimeters in the skin to reach the root of the hair. In the moment when it comes to melanin (pigment) in the hair, the light is absorbed, and it turns into a heat that destroys the hairs.
The hair is darker, thicker and denser, it is the absorption of the larger. Only the hair in the growth stage is destroyed, so it is necessary to repeat treatment 4 to 6 times to achieve a complete treatment result.
The result of the treatment also depends on the possible endocrine problems and the client’s genotype. In order to achieve as much efficiency as possible, it is important to arrange a treatment plan with a specialist, depending on your skin and hair type. Occasional maintenance treatments may also be required. Lasers are usually treated with legs, blisters, upper lip, beard, bikini area, intimate zone and hands. However, unwanted hair can be removed from almost any part of the body, except for the lids and the area of the eyeball.
PREPARING THE PATIENT
• Shave your hair 12 hours before treatment.
• Avoid skin tanning. If you have darkened, either by exposure to the sun or by means of self-denial, wait 7-10 days for you to regain the natural shade before you are subjected to treatment.
• Avoid cellulite treatments up to 4 weeks before treatment. Furthermore, antibiotic treatments for inflammatory acne are also a contraindication, and at least 4-6 weeks have passed since discontinuation of therapy.
• Do not tweak the hair, nor wax them with a wax or electric epilator 4-6 weeks before treatment. Such hair removal treatments may disrupt hair follicles and affect permanent laser removal.
• Remove makeup and deodorant.
• If you are treated with a hyaluronic filer, laser treatment can accelerate the absorption of the filler.
• Cancer, in particular skin cancer; autoimmune diseases, skin diseases
• Pregnancy (including IVF) and lactation
• Use of photosensitive drugs
• Illnesses that can be stimulated by light
• Long exposure to the sun or artificial darkening 3 to 4 weeks before and after treatment
• An active herpes simplex infection in the area to be treated
• The history of keloid scars
• Fragile and dry skin
• Hormone disorders (which are stimulated under high light) or corticosteroid therapy, as well as taking hormonal and protein supplements
• Use of anticoagulants
• History of coagulopathy
• Treatment on tattoos and permanent makeup items should be avoided
Note: Laser hair removal treatments can alter the appearance of tattoos and permanent makeup. If you have a tattoo on the part of the skin you want to treat, you should avoid the tattoo area!
After application of the hydrogel, the laser handle is applied to the skin and moves over the area to be treated. The permanent depilation treatment is very pleasant thanks to the skin cooling system that is embedded in the laser.
You may feel mild warmness or burning during treatment.
It is important to undergo treatment several times in the 4 week interval for face treatments and 6 to 8 weeks on other parts of the body for a reason, because the hair grows in certain phases, and the melanin containing the base of the hair is associated with the root only in the growth phase.
The different types of hair at this stage are always at different times. Which means that the person depends on how much laser depilation treatment is needed and whether it should stop treatment after a year.
Treatment of a small area, such as the upper lip, may take only a few minutes.
Treatment of a larger area, such as the back, may take longer
ADVERSE EFFECTS OF TREATMENT
The following risks exist:
• Serious or prolonged erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) 2-24 hours after treatment, which may last for several weeks.
• Irritation, itching, mild burning or pain (similar to burns from the sun) can occur within 48 hours of treatment at the treated site.
• Plagues or erosions of the epidermis may develop and remain visible for several days to a few weeks after treatment.
• Damage to eyes from glare or long-lasting, unprotected exposure to laser light. Protective goggles (suitable for wavelengths) must always be worn during treatment to prevent eye damage.
POSSIBLE NEGOTIATIONS OF TREATMENTS
• Discomfort when the laser impulse is activated – some patients experience varying degrees of discomfort. Some patients describe the feeling as a stinging, while others compare it with a crack of a rubber or a sting that can last up to one hour after treatment. Most patients tolerate the feeling during treatment, but some patients may require local anesthesia.
• Damage to the natural texture of the skin – in some cases, it can form scabs or blisters. It is necessary to follow the usual procedure for wound care.
• It is important that all people present in the room during the treatment (patients and medical staff) protect the eyes by wearing the recommended Alma Laser protective glasses.
CARE AFTER TREATMENT
• Cold (not frozen) packaging should be used immediately after treatment to cool the treated area, in order to reduce the island and alleviate the symptoms. Previously cooled gypsum boards 10×10 pre-soaked with water can be used.
• Care should be taken to prevent traumatization of the treated area for the first four or five days after treatment: avoid hot baths, aerobic exercises, massage, etc.
• Exposure to sunlight – patients should use a high sun protection factor (SPF> 30) and protect the treated surface from exposure to direct sunlight at least one month after treatment. Sunbathing after treatment can increase melanin regeneration, which can lead to hyper-pigmentation.
• Makeup – can be used the day after treatment, unless there are dandruffs or scabies. Since the skin is sensitive during this period, special care must be taken when removing makeup to avoid skin damage, which can cause infection in the area of treatment.
• If the area of treatment is exposed to dirt, it should be covered with cloth (clothing) for the next 10 days. Coarse sports or similar activities should be avoided a few days after the treatment, until the skin returns to normal.
