I’m interested in laser hair removal and I’ve noticed that there are lots of different machines out there that are used. What machine is used and what are its advantages?
There are an enormous amount of machines which are used for laser hair removal. Each machine uses a different wavelength of laser light and perhaps a different way of delivering the laser energy. We have found that the Soprano XL with SHR technology is the quickest, safest, and most effective laser available today for laser hair removal in skin types I-IV (all skin types except for the darkest of skin types). The hair removal laser is a diode laser which is the gold standard of laser hair removal. The laser energy is delivered so that the heat energy builds up over several passes to the skin where you desire the hair to be removed from rather than one single shot of laser energy. The total laser energy that is delivered to the hair follicle is the same, but, when it is delivered slowly, the procedure is significantly more comfortable which is the real advantage of the Soprano XL laser.
