Say Good-Bye to Unwanted Body Hair
Are you ready to say good-bye to unwanted body hair once and for all with laser hair removal in Chicago? That is great! At Natural Beauty Med Spa, you can enjoy a pain-free treatment using state-of-the-art technology. The Soprano ICE laser hair removal system is a preferred solution because it eliminates undesirable hair without causing the discomfort of similar treatments. We understand you have plenty of questions about the procedure before you are ready to commit to it. We have the answers you need to make the right choice.
How are the hair follicles destroyed?
The system uses a pulse of concentrated light energy to target hair follicles. The handpiece moves the laser between each pulse until the entire treatment area has been covered. Unlike other laser treatments, the Soprano ICE uses a lower amount of pulsating energy, which allows it to kill the actively growing hair follicles without causing unnecessary discomfort.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Traditional systems tend to cause some pain. Many people report it to feel like a rubber band is being snapped on your skin. You can skip the discomfort with Soprano ICE. The pulsating laser emits less energy to be virtually pain-free. We can also customize the treatment to accommodate your tolerance level, which is not possible using other laser hair removal systems.
How many treatments do I need?
Your hair grows in cycles. Not all hair follicles are in the same growth cycle, so you will need more than one treatment to achieve the results you want. On average, you can expect to need 8 to 10 sessions to see as much as a 90% improvement in your unwanted hair. The amount of sessions needed varies depending on several factors, such as the thickness and density of your hair.
How long does each treatment take?
The duration of your session varies depending on the size and location of the treatment area. Small areas, like your underarms, may only take 15 minutes; whereas, your entire back may take 60 minutes.
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
Our medical spa in Chicago uses the Soprano ICE system because it offers the widest advantages when compared to other equipment. Among one of its many benefits is the fact it is safe for nearly all skin and hair types. You will need to schedule a consultation to ensure you are a candidate for laser hair removal and to create your customized treatment plan.
Is it safe?
The Soprano ICE system is approved by the FDA to be used on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is the safest and most effective laser available in the world. You can rest assured you are making a wise choice to eliminate your unwanted body hair.
