We say a lot about hair removal lasers and laser hair removal. As regular readers know, we’re obsessed with both. It’s always best, however, to hear from the professional who use our hair removal lasers day in and day out. Therefore we’re happy to present a guest post from Beauty Blogger Maureen Hayden. Here’s what Maureen had to say about laser hair removal and the Pain-Free, Hair-Free laser hair removal treatment from Alma Lasers:
“Well, what can I say about this Soprano hair removal laser. A lot – it’s been fantastic. Speaking from my own personal experience on both sides of the laser it’s just been brilliant. I have raved about this machine in particular on my blog for a while now and I would say the Soprano has been the best laser hair removal machine I have used.
Now I do tend to get carried away when talking but allow me to state a few things so you can see where I’m coming from. I’m an Aesthetician and I’ve used various other lasers including IPL’s.
When training on a new device, I always ask, “Is it suitable for darker skin?” I’ve often found that the technology isn’t suitable in the first place. If it is, there’s usually more pain involved and poor results. This is a real shame so I was very happy to learn that the Soprano was suitable for darker skin. In fact it’s suitable for any skin type. Note that I say I was happy, but still skeptical.
I must admit I didn’t jump in and start having the treatments done myself straight away. It still took some time for me to try it out for myself. I liked the fact that the Soprano’s setting can be adjusted and, with me being a bit of a chicken, I opted to turn it right down. I was then pleasantly surprised because it didn’t hurt. It felt a little prickly sometime where I had coarse hair, but it was not painful.
At this time, I have had four treatments on my legs and other treatments on smaller areas. I’ve timed the treatments more or less consistently every four to five weeks apart. I only shaved between treatments as recommended and then I have had one treatment in March of this year as a touch up.
Usually a course of six treatments is recommended for optimal results but it worked so well for me I was happy with five and just shaving every few months to keep stray hairs at bay. I have only touched them a few times since. I do still have hairs but they are so few and so fine that I don’t notice them and barely feel them at all.
I’m glad I have had treatment as it just means for myself that holidays are hair free. It feels more comfortable and I’m very smooth indeed. Not a lot of clinics use this laser. It’s one of the latest technologies to come out in the ‘hair removal market.’ I would advise anyone to have this done and anyone that has dark unwanted hair is perfect. Any skin color which is one of the big plusses for me including it being virtually pain free as mentioned earlier. If you are thinking along the lines of having a more permanent option of hair removal then this is the laser to research. Where I work, Medizen, my clients travel from afar to have this particular machine used.
I do hope this has encouraged some of you who are thinking of having this done. I’m now thinking of having another area done. It’s just addictive. Why have unwanted embarrassing hair when you have soprano FOR ALL SKIN TYPES!
