REVIEW: Laser Hair Removal using the SopranoXL
SopranoXL laser system versus IPL hair removal:
– Highly effective on all hair and skin types including lighter hair and dark skin types.
– Relatively painless treatment as laser energy is used to heat up hair follicles gradually.
– Faster than traditional laser system as it uses a sweeping technique over larger spots instead of focused pulses on small areas.
– Safe, with low-risk of side effects and zero recovery time.
I tried out the SopranoXL laser system (considered the next-generation laser system) at IYAC Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Clinic. Tired of removing the hair on my lower legs with an epilator, I wanted a more permanent solution that was fast and affordable.
First, my therapist rubbed aloe vera gel on my legs before shaving them. A cold gel was applied then she used the machine head emitting laser energy to make big sweeping motions on my lower legs. The procedure felt like a warm massage and I almost dozed off during the treatment. On the few occasions when I felt the machine getting hot, I simply informed my therapist and she would either stop or apply more cold gel. I was wiped down with a wet towel to remove all cold gel and another application of aloe vera gel was applied at the end of my session.
I was recommended five sessions in total, every two or three weeks, for the best result. However, good results can usually be seen after the second treatment. Watch out for my update in the next few weeks!
