Laser Hair Removal

What is Soprano Laser/ How does Laser work?
Epilite use the Soprano Xli which is a true laser to provide permanent hair reduction. The laser is absorbed by pigments in the hair which heats up follicles and destroys them without damaging surrounding skin.

Is laser right for me?
Soprano XLi removes hair more effectively than existing methods such as IPL, electrolysis and waxing. It removes in grown hairs and has helped people improve confidence. It is suitable for all skin types,including patients with very dark skin.

Is Soprano laser hair removal permanent?
Yes. It will permanently destroy hair follicles that are in the growing phase on the day of treatment. It will not affect follicles without hair hence we recommend
a series of treatments.

How many laser treatments will I require?

We suggest that you will require a minimum of 6 treatments on each area, however this may vary. For further information please book a free consultation and talk to our specialist.

How much is Laser Hair Removal?

Is Laser as good as IPL hair removal?
In most cases laser is able to remove a larger variety of hair and treat all skin types.

How long is an Laser treatment?
Small areas can take as little as 10 minutes, larger areas take longer.

What are the side effects of Laser hair removal?
A patch test will determine the correct setting for you to ensure no side effects. If your skin is sensitive to heat treatments a slight pinkness may occur but this will disappear within hours.

Can Laser burn the skin?
In rare cases it is possible to cause a mild reaction similar to sunburn. The trained operator will always perform a patch test, so no problems should occur.

Does Laser hurt?
Some laser systems can be painful, our Soprano Xli system is virtually pain free and less painful than waxing and electrolysis.

Laser e-Lipo Treatment

How many treatments will I need?
We recommend 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks.

Can I have more than one course?
Yes but it is essential to have a two week gap between courses.

Can I have more than one area treated at one time?
Yes if you are prepared to do more cardio vascular exercise.

Will the inches stay off after a treatment?
Yes, but only if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.

What actually happens to the fat?
The fat cells are undamaged, but due to the reaction of the laser light on the cell it will empty the contents. The contents consist of Water, Glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment the Glycerol or sugar is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids, through the lymphatic system, through the kidneys and are then passed out of the body in your urine.

Does the treatment hurt?
No. There is no pain at all.

Will I have to keep coming back to keep my results?
The answer will be dependent on your lifestyle.

What exercise should I do following an inch-loss treatment?
Any cardio-vascular exercise adjusted for your fitness level, such as; running machine, swimming, power walking, etc. It is important that the right exercise is chosen for your age and fitness level. Whichever exercise is chosen must get the heart rate up to the point of perspiring.

Why do some people achieve better results than others?
All Laser e-Lipo Inch-loss treatments are not a miracle cure. However we achieve fantastic results more so with the clients that follow the advice of a sensible diet in addition the more exercise you can do the better the results.

How can I monitor my results?
At every session you will be weighed and measured and you will be photographed before your first treatment and following your last.

Treatments take between 10 and 40 minutes dependant on what system is being used. All systems work equally.
