What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that is performed by directing a concentrated laser beam at hair follicles. The laser works by converting light energy to heat, which inhibits the hair follicles’ ability to grow hair or delays future hair growth.

For the vast majority of our patients, laser hair removal becomes a true game changer in terms of saving time and money over waxing, sugaring, electrolysis, etc.

Treatment Options

Koniver Aesthetics offers Soprano ICE™, the most complete and effective hair removal system available today. Its variety of wavelengths (755, 810 and 1064) and cutting-edge technologies allow us to treat a wide range of patients and skin types and customize a laser hair removal plan to achieve our patients’ specific goals.

The system works by gradually heating the skin to the temperature required to treat the hair follicle in order to prevent regrowth. The hair follicle is treated by targeting the pigmentation (melanin), which absorbs the light of the laser.

Suitable for all skin types, skin tones and body parts, the Soprano ICE™ Laser system is as effective on lighter hair as darker hair. The Soprano ICE™ Laser system even works on tanned skin. A facial tip applicator facilitates precision hair removal on the face, including inside the ears and the nostrils.

The award-winning Soprano ICE™ system uses Alma® Laser’s Super Hair Removal (SHR) technology, which is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless with a proven safety record.

What to Expect

The area of the body or face being treated will be washed and your provider will apply a soothing gel to the skin’s surface. Repeated, gentle sweeping motions with the applicator gradually heat the treatment area with a high frequency of short pulses. The laser applicator is large enough to make treatment relatively swift.

Soprano ICE™ technology cools the surface of the skin to increase patient comfort, prevent superficial burns and allow for virtually painless, yet highly-effective hair removal. Treatment time varies, with some areas completed in just two minutes.

There is no downtime after the treatment and you can resume your normal activities when you leave your appointment. We do ask that you refrain from unprotected sun exposure for 48 hours.

Treatment Guidelines

Pre-Treatment Instructions:
You may not be treated within 3 months of being on Accutane.

Please ensure your treatment area is completely clean shaven 12-24 hours prior to your appt. If you arrive with hair, we may have to reschedule your appt or charge you a shaving fee.

Avoid sun for 48-72 hours prior to and after your appointment and apply sunscreen daily to the treated area. We can treat tanned skin with our device but will not treat over a sunburn. Ideally we are able to treat your skin when it is as close as possible to its natural color so that we can ensure you get as much energy as your skin type can handle.

Avoid self tanner for 5 days prior to appointment.

Call to reschedule if you have taken photosensitizing drugs within the last week.

Refrain from waxing, tweezing, and chemical depilatories for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment and while undergoing your treatment series. You can ONLY shave during this time period.

Call to reschedule if you are or become pregnant. You may be treated when you are breastfeeding but we are unable to numb the treatment area. As such, some wish to refrain from treating sensitive areas (e.g. Brazilian) when nursing.

If you are prone to cold sores, please treat preventatively prior to treatment. Should you have questions on what this entails, please contact our office.

Results

Laser hair removal is a process that takes more than one visit in order to capture and treat the hair at its most receptive phase of the growing cycle. The number of treatment sessions will differ from person to person, but the average is six to eight sessions. Treatments are performed on areas from the neck down every six to eight weeks, after which, typically, there is a 90% clearance rate on 90% of patients, with the patient having a touch-up every year or two. Treatments are performed on areas from the neck up every four weeks. Since everyone’s hair growth rate is different, as the patient moves into later weeks in their treatment plan, sessions may be spaced further apart as warranted.

Disclaimer: Every patient is different, and results may vary due to a number of factors. During your consultation, we will discuss with you the results you can expect and create a custom treatment plan that’s right for you.

Laser Hair Removal: FAQs

Is there a difference in treating dark and light hair?

Yes, but because the Soprano ICE offers multiple laser wavelengths (755, 810, and 1064), we are able to treat the widest range of hair types and color, quickly and painlessly, all year round, even on tanned skin. This breakthrough technology lets us customize the treatment for each person. During your sessions, we may be working with different wavelengths depending on the various treatment areas. The only caveat is that the hair must be darker than the surrounding skin, so very light peach fuzz on the face, for example, will not be able to be treated.

Can you guarantee 100% hair removal?

We cannot guarantee 100% hair removal because the laser is only effective when the hair is in the anagen growth phase. Hair can remain dormant for years at a time. We tell our patients to expect 90% hair removal assuming they adhere to their recommended treatment sessions and schedule. The treatment schedule is extremely important to outcomes.

How does pricing work for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is priced according to the size of the area being treated. For example, the lip/chin is extra small, the bikini area is small, a Brazilian is medium, a half leg is large, and a full leg is extra large. Please give us a call for current pricing.
