22 Aug What is Soprano laser hair removal and why is it so popular?
Waxing, creams, IPL, shaving, even tweezing – there’s so many ways to go for hair removal – especially over the Summer – how do you know which is best for you? At Vita Hair & Beauty we were tired of the tedious nature of many hair removal techniques that often comes with the desire to want silky smooth skin, so a while ago we implemented a new technique altogether – Soprano laser hair removal – and we fell in love.
Our Soprano laser hair removal is virtually painless. The lasers very safely lightly heat the targeted area to effectively remove any unwanted hair – and the good news is that it’s suitable for sensitive skin too! Goodbye post-shaving redness and itchiness. Using pulses of infrared diode laser energy, the technique targets the area ever-so-gently until the follicles no longer produce new hair by killing the growth cells. Pain free and hair free…for good.
Using the technology developed by our partners Alma, the Soprano technique does not cause any irritation like IPL treatments. Imagine being completely hair-free without the hassle and pain of other hair removal methods, and without having to keep making numerous trips to the salon once the treatment has ended – for both women and men. True liberation. We currently have a Soprano special offer – book 5 treatments and get the 6th absolutely free, as well as up to 25% price cuts for individual sessions. Have a peek at our price list where we offer incredibly competitive prices, particularly for London!
IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments have often been compared to the Soprano laser method, and use light technology to similarly heat and destroy the hair follicle to prevent hair growth. However, the difference between this treatment and Soprano is that IPL can often leave clients feeling like they’ve had a sunburn or can even discolour the skin if used on darker skin tones. Unlike Soprano laser, which has just one specific wavelength emitted from the diode, IPL uses multiples that then scatter within the skin. Dermatologists believe that IPL is less effective as the energy is produced by a small light bulb-esque lamp and the range of waves means it is more diffused and less powerful. This also means it is often limited to being used on fairer skin, too.
Although Vita still offers waxing using wax enriched with aromatherapy oils, Soprano laser removal is more suitable for long term hair removal over larger areas, and has ultimate precision – plus, it comes without the pain. Waxing actually pulls the hair out of the follicle in a swift (though often quite painful) movement, with removal lasting between 4-6 weeks – although it can grow back quicker due to hair being on different growth cycles. Comparatively, Soprano burns the follicle to stop it from growing new hair at all in the future – so there’s long term results, with no pain or damage to delicate skin.
If all this has peaked your interest, you’re not the only one – Soprano is becoming increasingly popular and has gained a huge following within the beauty industry. If you do try it let us know how it goes, or if you’re curious feel free to give us a call to chat to one of our therapists about it some more, or if you’re around Earls Court you can always pop in. We’d be more than happy to see you!
