Laser Hair Removal

At Luminous Skin and Laser Tampa, we use Alma Soprano Lite -- the gold standard in laser hair removal. Alma Soprano is the latest technology in hair removal, with a track record of proven efficacy at safely removing unwanted body hair.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by delivering energy to the treated area in the form of light, selectively targeting the pigment in the hair follicle without harming the surrounding tissue. This way, the light absorbed by the hair follicle gets converted to heat, which destroys the hair follicle. Follicles damaged by laser hair removal cannot grow back, resulting in lasting hair removal results.

The Gold Standard 810 diode wavelength is backed by years of clinical proven effectiveness. Combined with Super Hair Removal (SHR™), you can offer virtually painless hair removal without sacrificing efficacy or patient comfort.

With a wavelength range of 780-950 nm, Speed AFT puts tremendous capabilities into your hands. Using the large 6.4 cm spot size, providers are able to perform more treatment sessions in less time. Larger body areas may be treated faster without sacrificing efficacy.

Speed AFT further helps providers rise above their competition with enhanced contact cooling, making sure your patients enjoy a comfortable treatment that they’ll tell their friends and family about.

* Permanent reduction in hair regrowth defined as a long term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing when measured at 6, 9 and 12 months after the completion of a treatment regime.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The hair growth process can be broken down in four main stages that occur between hair starting to grow until it naturally falls out. It’s called the hair growth cycle. At any given area in the body, there will be hair growing at different stages. Because hair follicles can only be eliminated at a specific phase of their growth cycle, multiple sessions are required to assure all hair in the target area is treated correctly and evenly removed.

When Will I Notice Results?

Most patients require between 4 to 12 sessions to see peak results. However, a dramatic reduction in the amount of hair growth and thickness can be seen from as little as two sessions.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for this Procedure?

Alma Soprano Lite’s advanced technology can safely treat the skin of all types. However, laser hair removal should only be performed on healthy skin. Inflamed or irritated skin should be restored before attempting laser hair removal.

Is There Any Downtime to this Procedure?

You can resume your normal activities on the day of your hair removal treatment. However, there are a few indications you should follow to ensure you make the most out of your hair removal treatment. Physical activity and hot showers should be avoided in the first 24 hours, as heat from the laser will still be trapped underneath your skin. Direct sun exposure should also be avoided in the first week following your treatment, as your skin will be especially sensitive to the sun during this period.

Is Treatment Painful?

The levels of discomfort experienced during laser hair removal vary from patient to patient, depending on their pain tolerance. Some patients describe it as feeling like being gently slapped with a tiny rubber band. Other patients report hardly noticing any sensation at all. The procedure is generally described as tolerable and quick.

Alma Soprano Lite also has an oversized handpiece that allows your therapist to work faster, treating larger body areas more quickly without compromising in effectiveness. This will also result in less discomfort for you.
