Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal remains one of the world’s most popular aesthetic procedures. Anyone with excessive body hair or hair in the wrong place is most likely a good candidate for laser hair removal. Hannah London is equipped with the new Soprano ICE Platinum system, an award-winning laser hair removal system featuring trio-clustered diode technology, combining three laser wavelengths into a single applicator simultaneously treating different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicles. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, along with the treatment comfort and virtually pain free treatment of the diode laser, Soprano ICE Platinum achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today

What is the technology behind Soprano ICE Platinum and how does it compare with other Laser hair removal methods on the market?
The Soprano ICE Platinum offers the synergistic benefit of the three most effective wavelengths for hair removal:
- Alex Technology: 755nm wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and colours, especially lighter coloured and finer hair.
- Diode Technology: 810nm is the classic wavelength to offer deeper penetration of the hair follicle and high average power.
- YAG Technology: 1064nm wavelength offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle making it a optimal solution for darker skin types and thicker, darker hair.
Each wavelength penetrates a different depth into the skin to damage different parts of the hair follicle, root and bulb resulting in drastically reduced hair growth. Other lasers, including the standard Soprano ICE only emit 1 laser wavelength. This means that the Soprano Ice Platinum treatment is more effective in reducing and eliminating hair growth than other laser systems.
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is Alma Laser’s proprietary hair removal method. It is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. It utilizes a high repetition rate of short pulses delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, with virtually no pain. This method is safer and less painful than the old fashioned ‘shots’ method.
How safe is it?
The Soprano Ice Platinum system is one of the safest on the market, as rather than delivering all the laser energy in shots such as with traditional laser systems, the applicator is passed back and forth over the area to be treated so that energy and warmth builds up over a few seconds. There is an extremely low risk of complications when our experienced practitioners operate the laser for a given skin type following the correct treatment protocols.
What does the treatment involve?
Laser hair removal will only treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth, roughly 10-15% of the hair in any particular area will be at this phase at any time. Each treatment, 4-8 weeks apart will treat different hairs at this stage of their life cycle so you should see a roughly 10-15% reduction in hair per treatment. Most people will go for 6 to 8 treatments per area, possibly more for more resistant areas such as the face or private area.
Apart from shaving, avoid any other hair removal method such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks prior to treatment and throughout your course. Avoid sunbeds or any kind of fake tan for 2 weeks and normal sun exposure for 1 week prior to treatment. You should shave areas to be treated or patch tested around 8 hours before your visit. We will discuss any medications in detail at your consultation.
After treatment you may experience mild redness or slight sensitivity. Aloe Vera gel is excellent to calm and soothe the skin and works well straight from the fridge. For any areas treated that are exposed to sunlight, you should protect your skin with a factor 30-50 SPF sunscreen. We stock sunscreen that will protect your skin after treatment.
After the laser treatment avoid heat such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam rooms. Avoid vigorous exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation. Our team is always available to provide continuing advice and support even after your final session is complete.
It is necessary to shave any area to be treated with laser to ensure the session is safe and effective. The optimal time to shave is around 8 hours before your appointment time. This allows your skin time to calm down and any redness to fade while still leaving a smooth surface for the laser to treat.If hair has not been shaved, the laser will mainly attack hair outside the skin. This will not be comfortable and could present an increased risk of side effects. This will also result in the treatment being ineffective or less effective.
Am I suitable for laser hair removal?
The Soprano Ice Platinum is suitable for any skin type including skin that is tanned (wait 1 week after sun exposure). Our system uses 3 different laser light wavelengths to target the widest possible range of hair colours and textures. However as lasers target the melanin pigment within the hair follicle, ginger, white or grey hair will not be as significantly affected by the laser. The more melanin in the hair, the more effective the treatment tends to be. Very fine hair (vellus hair) may also not be the best candidate for laser hair removal because hair lacking sufficient density may not contain enough melanin for an effective result.
