Laser Hair Removal in Reading, PA

Unwanted hair is a common problem for both men and women. Whether you are tired of shaving your legs or you have embarrassing stray hairs in places like your back or, in women, the upper lip, getting rid of unwanted hair for good is highly desirable. If you have had enough of spending time and money on shaving, tweezing or waxing, you are not alone, and there are other options. Laser hair removal using the Soprano system is a highly effective method of reducing hair growth painlessly.

Soprano Laser Hair Removal

The Soprano laser hair removal system uses the highest quality of laser technology to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair from the face and body. The laser gently heats the targeted areas, destroying hair follicles quickly. Because the laser precisely targets each hair follicle, the surrounding skin remains cool and undamaged. Once complete, hair is unable to regrow from damaged follicles.

How Does Laser Hair Removal with the Soprano System Work?

Hair removal using the Soprano laser is done on an outpatient basis in your doctor’s office. The majority of patients find the procedure comfortable, so there is no need for anesthesia or even numbing cream. Your doctor will recommend that you shave the area being treated within 24 hours prior to your appointment. The skin is cleaned, and your doctor will use the hand held Soprano device to treat the specified areas. The device delivers short bursts of laser energy to the hair follicles in the dermal layer of the skin. You may feel a warming sensation, but it is typically not painful. Many patients describe the experience as being similar to a hot stone massage. Depending on the area treated, your hair color and your skin tone, you may need four to six treatments to achieve full results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a very safe procedure, and the Soprano system is even safer than other laser treatment systems because it uses lower heat settings. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments on the market, largely because they are safe for the majority of patients. Treatments can be performed on people of all skin tones and with all colors of hair. Gray and white hair tend to be the least responsive treatment, and dark hair is the most responsive. If your skin is in overall good health, and you have not recently gone tanning or been waxed, it is likely that you are a good candidate for laser hair removal.

Recovery from Soprano Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal using the Soprano system is painless, and there is no need for downtime. You do not need to arrange time off of work. In fact, you could have a small area treated during your lunch break and head back into the office the same day.
