Soprano XLi is a revolutionary hair removal treatment. During the treatment, hair follicles in the sub-dermal layer of the skin are gradually heated using pulses of diode energy. After several treatments, the targeted areas no longer produce new hair.
Unlike other hair removal treatments, this treatment heats hair follicles very gradually, avoiding pain and prolonged treatment times. The targeted follicles gradually die off.
Not all hair follicles are active at the same time; each treatment session will only kill approximately 20 per cent of follicles in the treated area. You will therefore need to 6 or more treatments to remove most of the hair in a region. The treatments are also spread over a period of several months, to target the hair at its different growth stages.
Here are three advantages of using the Soprano XLi to remove hair on your body.
The treatment is generally painless.
Unlike some other hair removal procedures, such as the IPL, the Soprano XLi laser treatment is pretty much painless, and because the treatment is done over a period of several months, you will notice a gradual decreasing and thinning of the hair in the treated area.
Patients who have undergone the treatment have reported a slight warm feeling during the procedure, which is completely tolerable.
Dr Elias Tam of EHA Clinic, who has over 20 years of medical experience, will apply a cooling gel to help reduce any feelings of discomfort during the treatment.
Do note, however, that the Soprano XLi machine does have different settings, and Dr Tam may request that you undergo sessions with a stronger setting, which may involve some discomfort.
Soprano XLi is suitable for all skin types
Due to the nature of this treatment, you will not need to worry about having a suitable skin type. Soprano XLi has been approved for use on all skin types including tanned skin, making it suitable for anyone regardless of ethnicity.
Soprano XLi has also been approved for use on almost all areas of the body. Commonly treated areas include the legs, underarms, chest, bikini area and forearms.
Besides the treatment for hair removal, Soprano XLi also has a side effect of tightening the skin, by using near infra-red (NIR) technology to stimulate the production of collagen in the treated areas.
Soprano XLi is non-invasive
The Soprano XLi treatment is completely non-invasive and has no downtime.
A non-invasive treatment means that you can return to work immediately after the procedure is complete – there is no need to take an extended leave from work for recuperation.
The time taken for each treatment process may vary, depending on the size of the area being treated.
