Laser Hair Removal Machinery

At Este, we use the Soprano Platinum and Soprano Titanium laser hair removal machines. They work in a way that heats up the dermis layer of the skin to a temperature that destroys the hair follicles. Once the hair follicle has been destroyed, no more hair can grow. However, for the process to work, the hair follicle must be in its active growth phase, and this is why multiple laser removal sessions are needed.

Hair grows in stages, so while one follicle may be in the active growth phase, another could be in a resting phase. For this reason, you will need multiple sessions, and in general around 6-8 sessions are needed over a number of months. Depending on the size of the site you are having treated, your session may last anywhere between 15 minutes and an hour.
