Laser Hair Removal
Soprano XL Laser Hair Removal by Alma is one of the top technologies in the world for providing safe, comfortable, effective, and long-lasting hair removal. Soprano®’s innovative technology is effective for all ages and skin type.
How is Soprano® XL Laser Hair Removal different?
Soprano uses pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of skin until eventually, the hair can no longer grow. With the combination of IN-Motion™ technology and a patented Dual Chill™ treatment tip, the surface of your skin remains cool throughout the treatment.
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Men and women of any age looking to rid themselves of unwanted hair! The Soprano® system can safely and effectively remove hair from virtually anywhere on the face and body. The Soprano can treat all skin types, hair types, and most hair colors.
What to expect?
Hair reduction is gradual, most patient’s start to see the reduction after one session. The number of treatments varies on the area being treated. The treatment itself is very comfortable and usually takes less than an hour.
Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair permanently by targeting and damaging the root of the hair. The laser itself is attracted to pigment or color. Assuming there is a good contrast between the skin and the hair, the laser damages the root and leaves behind a small stem. Over the next 2–3 weeks, it will appear as if the hairs are growing when actually the skin is naturally pushing this stem up and out. If you were to pull at these hairs with your fingers (not tweezers) 2–3 weeks after the treatment these hairs slide out with no resistance at all. Once these hairs fall out there will be a period where there is very little hair. With a new cycle of hair growth approximately 6 to 8 weeks for the body and 4 to 6 weeks for the face, you would be coming in for your next treatment.
The reason why you would require more than one treatment is there are different cycles of hair growth. Ideally, we want to be able to attack the hair during the active stage of hair growth (anagen stage) which is when the hair follicle has a full root. Because we don’t know which hairs are in right stage at one time, that is the only reason why you would need more than one treatment. Normally 5–8 treatments are required for best results.
Popular treatment areas include underarms, legs, the bikini area, the upper lip, chin, and men’s backs and shoulders to mention a few. Laser hair removal generally works best for areas where the hair is dark and/or coarse. The number of laser hair removal treatments varies based on ones’ ethnic background or skin type as well as the area treated. We recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to give you realistic expectations and to determine whether you are in fact a good candidate for this popular procedure. There is absolutely no obligation with the complimentary consultation.
Botox Injection is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments proven to be effective in turning back the clock. Wrinkles can be minimized effectively by having an expert inject an extremely small and weakened amount of botulinum toxin (a.k.a. Botox) into specific facial muscles. This will relax the muscles and the wrinkles, giving you smooth and youthful skin. Muscles injected with Botox will no longer contract as much as before, letting wrinkles smoothen out and eventually disappear.
How Botox exactly help me?
Keep in mind that Botox is not a type of facial filler and is not something that is added to your wrinkles to remove it. It will only paralyze small facial muscles to prevent wrinkles from forming.
How long does Botox injection take?
The procedure usually lasts around 10 minutes, depending on the service. It does not require anesthesia so be prepared for small pricks in your skin. It is advisable to avoid aspirin a day before the appointment to avoid a risk of bruising on the treated part.
When can you see the Botox’s result?
After 24 to 48 hours, or even a week, you’ll begin to notice changes in your face. Wrinkles in the forehead, eyes, and mouth will gradually disappear. Your face may look and feel stretched but the muscles are actually more relaxed, giving you a smooth and youthful-looking complexion.
When should you come back to get next Botox injection?
Botox treatment will last for four to six months and repeated exposure to Botox will make your wrinkles appear less severe as your facial muscles will get used to the relaxant. It is a good alternative for those looking for a way to achieve youthful beauty but does not want to take the cosmetic surgery path.

What to Expect From My Laser Session?
There can be some anxiety as the appointment draws near. To help alleviate those fears, it is a good idea to learn what happens during the treatment. In many cases, a simple knowledge of what is to come will relieve anxiety, so the treatment session is as pleasant and painless as possible.
Laser hair removal treatment typically is done in a sequence of sessions that take place in four to eight-week intervals. There may be three to five appointments scheduled, depending on the area that will be treated and how effective the treatments are. The first appointment consists of a consultation with the laser specialist who will be performing the procedure. At this meeting, the patient will precisely learn what to expect from the treatment and have the opportunity to ask questions about the laser hair removal process.
At the next appointment, the area that will be treated may be shaved, and an anesthetic cream is applied to alleviate any possible discomfort. In many cases, a cooling device is attached to the laser to increase the comfort level for the patient. After the procedure, the treated area may be slightly red and swollen. This will go away fairly quickly with gentle cleansing, but a topical ointment can also be provided to ease the discomfort.
Prepare Yourself For Your Laser Treatment
1. Stop Tanning at Least a Month Before The Therapy
Avoid tanning for at least four to six weeks before you go for your laser treatment. A reasonable precaution is to always put on sunscreen lotion during this period. The reason for avoiding the sun is because the sun helps your skin produce melanin. Melanin is what makes your skin change its color; Melanin also happens to be what the laser is targeting your unwanted hair. Why? It is because melanin absorbs the laser energy and converts it into heat. If enough heat is produced, the hair follicle is destroyed. If there is too much melanin in your skin, most of the laser energy will instead be absorbed by your skin. This means that only the leftovers will be absorbed by your hair which in turn means that not enough heat will be produced in your hair follicle to destroy it.
2. Have the treated area of your skin free of cosmetics, creams or lotions
Your skin need be free of any moisturizing creams, lotions or cosmetics, at the moment of treatment. You should clean the body part to be treated. In case you might have used any antiperspirant, eliminate it before the operation.
3. Avoid supplements, discuss it with your cosmetic specialist before
Go easy on vitamin A supplements as well as ingested Beta Carotene. Ingested Beta-Carotene can usually be found in vegetables such as carrots and squash. The reason why you should avoid going easy on Beta Carotene is that it happens to change your skin color to a subtle orange or yellow color, which means once again that more melanin is produced in the skin, therefore diluting the power of the laser energy that is targeting the hair follicle.
4. Shave the body part 24 hours before the appointment:
Shave the body part to undergo the procedure 24 to 48 hours before the going for the treatment, or as directed by your specialist during the pre-procedure discussion or consultation. Just keep in mind, laser works better on smooth skin, and unlike waxing, the longer hair doesn’t help the procedure.
5. Put on loose-fitting clothes
On the day of laser hair removal, go to the clinic in loose-fitting clothes that give treatment area an exposure or can be quickly removed to reveal the part of treatment.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Do I need?
The length of time for hair removal and the number of treatments will depend on the area being treated, the skin type, hair growth cycles, skin tone, hair coloring and the coarseness of hair are all variable that helps determine how many hair removal treatments will be needed. You would need more than one treatment. Normally 5–8 treatments are required for the best results. The sessions are spaced 5–6 weeks apart depending on the area and individual.
