A virtually pain-free diode laser hair removal machine Laser hair removal is the #1 non-invasive aesthetics treatment available today with an estimated growth rate of 18%. With nearly 3.1 million laser hair removal treatments performed in 2006 alone, hair removal is a fantastic way to inject profit into your practice. While there are many methods to eliminate unwanted hair, very few can eliminate hair regrowth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. And photoepilation is quickly becoming the most popular. Lasers and light sources use the principle of selective photothermolysis to eliminate hair and its potential regrowth without damaging the surrounding skin. During a laser hair removal treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for regrowth. The attributes of the light (wavelength, pulse duration and power) are chosen to ensure damage to these cells and not to the rest of the skin.
Technology in use
SopranoXL uses 810-nm diode laser technology, the gold standard in laser hair removal since its introduction in 1998. Unlike earlier systems, however, SopranoXL energy penetrates deep into the dermis (where the hair follicle is located) with high average power and a rapid 10 pulse-per-second repetition rate.
Using CW Pulse™ technology allows homogeneous distribution and more effective fluence to be delivered with improved patient comfort. The unique pulse structure of SopranoXL incorporates two discrete pulses. The first is a preheated long pulse that safely heats the tissue; the second short pulse effectively destroys the hair follicle and its surrounding vasculature.
Gold standard 810-nm laser diode
Soprano Family uses an 810-nm diode laser technology, the gold standard in laser hair removal since its introduction in 1998. Unlike earlier systems, however, Soprano energy penetrates deep into the dermis where the hair follicle is located, delivering high average power and a rapid 10 pulse-per-second repetition rate.
Introducing the Soprano ICE
Alma reinvented laser hair removal with its Soprano XL and Soprano XLi systems. Now the best is even better. We’re proud to introduce the Soprano ICE, everything you asked for in a hair removal laser. Soprano ICE allows practitioners to treat the widest range of patients and hair types all year round, administer treatments quickly and comfortably and achieve the best possible clinical results.
SHR technology has been the subject of numerous white papers, peer reviewed articles and other professional studies. In studies comparing SHR to other laser hair removal technologies, SHR was found to be eff¬ective in dark skinned patients.
