Laser Hair Removal
Effective Laser Hair Removal at DrBK using the state-of-the-art Soprano Ice Laser.
The Soprano ICE Laser removes unwanted hair effortlessly and without any pain. Unlike other IPL lasers used for hair removal which can be quite painful, this laser has a cooling mechanism that prevents any discomfort whilst still maintaining the necessary heat for the hair follicles.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser head moves smoothly over the skin gently warming the area at the same time. The heated area is targeted with gentle pulses of laser energy which penetrate the hair follicle killing off the unwanted hairs at the root. As the follicles absorb the laser energy they are disabled and unable to produce a new hair.
The Soprano ICE Laser system uses the best technology currently available for hair removal anywhere on the body, offering outstanding results on the widest range of skin tones.

How many treatments will I need?
Clinical studies indicate that typically 6-12 treatments at intervals of six weeks apart are required to achieve optimum results. This is because all hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth.
Laser light only affects the follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment. Resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated.
Will my hair ever grow back?
In short, no. Once the hair follicle has been damaged it cannot grow a new hair, the removal is permanent. However there are invariably a few follicles that may escape the full force of the laser and occasionally these individual follicles need to be retreated. Everyone is different and will need to be treated for more or less sessions.
Is it safe?
Our laser hair removal system is FDA cleared on skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI and tanned skin). We will carry out a routine patch-test to ensure you are suitable for treatment. Unlike many other laser and IPL machines which can cause quite severe discomfort and for some even very painful treatments, the Soprano ICE™ laser machine (from Alma Laser) is clinically proven to be virtually pain free.
