The SHR method included in the Soprano ICE ensures the safety and convenience of hair removal treatments. Apart from preventing hair regrowth, this device also avoids injury to the surrounding skin tissue.

How Soprano ICE Works?

Unlike traditional hair removal methods that are troublesome like waxing or tweezing, Soprano ICE is able to remove unwanted hairs easily. There are several treatment methods: In-Motion, SHR Stack, and Stationery to accommodate various needs.

Soprano ICE transmits laser light energy that penetrates into the skin surface. The light energy that is absorbed by melanin and converted into heat targets hair follicles so that hair growth is inhibited.

The ICE technology incorporated in the Soprano ICE system is designed to reduce the risk of burns while maintaining heat in the dermis where hair follicles are targeted. This device will cool the skin during the treatment for a long period of time.

Soprano ICE is also equipped with SHR which works gradually to cool the dermis to a temperature that effectively destroys hair follicles. The damage to hair follicles is intended to prevent hair growth. At the same time, this device ensures that skin tissue around the treated area is not affected.

As one of the fastest devices, Soprano ICE includes a unique facial tip for reaching hard-to-reach areas. Some of these areas include the ears, nostrils, and glabella.

The treated body area will be cleaned first before treatment. Then, the skin surface where the hairs want to be removed is applied with a soothing gel. After that, the applicator placed onto the skin surface transmits a high-frequency short pulse.

How Many Treatments are Needed?

Prior to treatment, patients need to meet with experienced medical practitioners at an aesthetic clinic. They will examine the skin condition and analyze skin problems then determine the most appropriate Soprano ICE treatment. The patient may be advised to shave the area where the hairs are to be removed.

The duration of a Soprano ICE treatment varies depending on the patient's skin type and condition as well as the size of the area being treated. For example, removing a small amount of hairs on the upper lip takes less than 1 minute. The wider the size of the treated area the longer the duration of the treatment session.

In general, one session takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes. Since Soprano ICE has no downtime, after treatment, patients can carry out their normal daily routine as usual.

Who are The Ideal Candidates for The Treatment?


Soprano ICE is suitable for women and men with any skin types and tones, including dark and tanned skin thanks to multiple wavelengths of 755, 810, and 1064. This breakthrough technology allows us to personalize treatment for each person.

Meanwhile, white or gray hair will not be affected by laser which targets melanin in the hair follicles. The more melanin in the hair follicles the more effective the treatment will be. People wirh vellus hair is also not a good candidate because it doesn't contain enough melanin. Pregnant women are also not advised to get this treatment.

Are The Results Permanent?

The light energy emitted from Soprano ICE will damage hair follicles and inhibit hair growth for a long period of time. However, it does not guarantee 100% the hairs will not come back. Patients will see results after a course of 6 to 8 treatments.

The reason is, laser only works effectively when the hairs are in their anagen growth phase. If the patient is treated properly as recommended by the dermatologist, 60-90% hair reduction can be achieved.

What are The Side Effects of Soprano ICE?

Each patient has a different experience. However, in general, patients will experience mild redness after treatment. This minor side effect usually subsides within a few hours or days. You need to remember, use a 30-50 SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from direct sunlight anytime you go outside.

After treatment, you should avoid hot baths, steam rooms and saunas. In addition, you also need to avoid swimming in the pool because the chemicals in it may cause skin irritation. (Beauté Salon & Spa)
