Laser Hair Removal / Reduction Featuring the Soprano™ XL LaserBy Houston Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Mark A. Schusterman, MD, FACS
Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal/Reduction
Basically anyone with unwanted hair is a good candidate for laser hair removal/reduction. Although the most dramatic results occur in patients with light skin and dark hair, it is possible for patients with darker skin to receive benefit from the procedure. Other factors can influence the treatment process and are evaluated during your initial consultation.
Both men and women can find excess facial or body hair a nagging concern. Many find depilatories, shaving, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis uncomfortable, time-consuming and yielding only temporary results. Laser therapy on the other hand is gentle, safe, long lasting and non-invasive. With the use of the industry leading, Soprano™ XL laser, Bella Rosa's personalized beauty procedures can safely and effectively treat areas of unwanted hair, leaving your skin silky and smooth.
With built in DualChill™ technology, the Soprano™ XL laser emits a beam of laser light that safely and gently removes the hair and prevents re-growth. The treatment can remove unwanted hair from the legs, arms, back, shoulders, underarms, upper lip, and the bikini area, regardless of your hair or skin type. Laser hair removal is a thoroughly tested, clinically-proven method of hair removal/reduction, quickly removing unwanted hair and leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
The Laser Hair Removal/Reduction Procedure
The laser removal/reduction procedure can take from several minutes to several hours, depending on the area of the body involved. A gentle beam of laser light heats the dermis, instantaneously and permanently disabling a percentage of hair follicles with each treatment. By using the Soprano™ XL laser, generally no analgesics or cooling gels are required because of the DualChill™ technology already built in to the laser.
How Many Treatments are Required?
Laser therapy is an ongoing process that requires multiple sessions. Hair grows in cycles, and the laser affects hair only when it is in the early-growth phase. The laser will disable follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment. At any time, some hair follicles are dormant. Repeat sessions will treat these follicles when they re-enter the growth phase.
After the Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Following a laser hair removal treatment, patients may occasionally experience a temporary, slight reddening of the skin or localized swelling. Sunscreen is recommended for any treated areas exposed to the sun. Otherwise, there is no down-time associated with this treatment, and you can return to normal activities immediately.
