Getting rid of unwanted hair is an age-old issue, with long-term hair removal being particularly challenging. People who suffer from excess hair used to go through painful and long hours of waxing and plucking. Alas, these methods have become quite obsolete with modern laser technology.
The equipment we use utilizes ground-breaking technology to offer a simple, one-stop solution for truly effective hair removal. Our unique gradual heating method effectively damages the hair follicles while avoiding injury to the surrounding skin. The sweeping In-motion delivery technique keeps the laser in constant motion ensuring full coverage of the treated area. The improved coverage helps avoid unwanted results such as “Zebra stripes” associated with older, stationary methods.
Most hair removal devices use one specific type of laser wavelength. The most common ones are the 755nm, 808nm and 1064nm laser wavelengths. Each of these has unique characteristics and different absorption levels in Melanin. Melanin is the chromophore that determines a person’s skin and hair color. Alma’s newest Soprano ICE Platinum combines all of these wavelengths simultaneously which makes our treatments suitable for all skin types.
