At Infinite Wellness & Aesthetics, our cutting-edge Soprano® ICE system provides long-lasting results for the many men and women that seek improved aesthetics and comfort through effective, virtually painless hair removal. Your results are considered semi-permanent because the hair follicles are always in flux and may continue developing to some degree. You can expect to lose a significant majority of unwanted hair follicles throughout your treatment regimen. And any that remain may be sparse or degraded to the point that they’re less visible, weaker, and easier to get rid of.


So if you’d like to ditch the shaving and creams while flaunting smoother skin, please get in touch with us in Yarmouth, ME!


Should I shave before my laser hair removal treatments?


It is recommended that patients shave the day before a laser hair removal treatment. For best results, the laser’s energy must be absorbed into the skin to reach the follicles, but having a layer of hair above the skin may deflect or prematurely absorb some of that energy. The timing is also essential, and it’s suggested that patients shave12- 24 hours before their treatment to give the skin a chance to heal and recuperate after the stresses of shaving.


One of the most significant advantages of Soprano ICE is its modern mode of action, which yields effectively painless results. Traditionally, hair removal has been an uncomfortable and not-so-very-effective process. However, technological advancements have made it possible for you to enjoy exceptionally smooth, silky, and beautifully hairless skin or complexion with as little discomfort as possible.


In fact, patients are consistently surprised by the ease of their treatments — they may feel a slight pulling sensation and a bit of heat. However, the Soprano ICE features a cooling system to ensure patients feel the utmost possible comfort.


What else makes Soprano ICE such an effective hair removal system?


The Soprano ICE platform offers such gentle and effective hair removal that most people are great candidates for this state-of-the-art treatment system. Generally, great candidates want to rid themselves of body hair or hair on the face without going through an inconvenient, painful procedure.


This easy and comfortable hair removal option can help you say goodbye to traditional, less desirable alternatives, including shaving, waxing, plucking, or depilatory creams. Good overall health is another relevant factor, though we can ascertain your candidacy when we see you for a consultation in Yarmouth, ME. We’ll be more than happy to discuss your expectations, go over your essential personal aspects, then help you choose a treatment course based on your needs and goals.


Because even though this is a wonderfully effective treatment, multiple sessions will be needed due to the natural growth pattern of hair. As mentioned, hair follicles are in flux and may be in different stages at any time. For example, when some are growing, others are resting. So we schedule the treatments across several weeks to target as many follicles as possible while they’re in their growth phase. Follow-up treatments can eliminate new growth or stragglers.
