Laser Hair Removal

Instead of shaving, waxing and tweezing, laser hair removal is fast becoming the number one form of hair removal around the globe. After all, who doesn’t want a body/face, minus the bumps and irritation caused by other forms of hair removal and more importantly, after a course of treatments, virtually no hair! Celebrities are also putting down their razors and opting for laser hair removal. The likes of Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Victoria Beckham have been very vocal about their appreciation and love for laser.

HB Health of Knightsbridge use the latest technology in Laser Hair Removal in the form of the Soprano Ice Platinum system that delivers the results that you expect; dramatic reduction of unwanted hair.

What is Laser Hair removal?

Laser hair removal involves administering highly concentrated light into the hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light, creating heat that damages the structures that create hair – the hair bulge, bulb and vascular supply. Once these structures are sufficiently damaged hair stops growing. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, arms, underarms, bikini line and anywhere else unwanted hair may appear. Protective goggles are worn so really the only part of the body that cannot be treated is directly around the eyes. Lasers selectively target dark the melanin within hair while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Why is the Soprano Ice Platinum the best?

The Soprano Ice Platinum employ  a sapphire contact cooling system, which is the most effective method of constantly cooling skin during treatment. This is more effective than the cold air device employed on other laser hair removal systems.  The Soprano Ice Platinum also deploys a SHR (Safe Hair Removal) technique to treat the rather than the traditional ‘shots’ based treatment. The Saprano Ice uses the SHR technique; whereby the treatment applicator is passed back and forth over the treated area while the laser flashes on 10 times a second at a lower intensity, allowing energy and heat to build up gradually rather than instant painful ‘shots’ as delivered by traditional laser systems.
