Celebrating 10 years of award-winning success, Alma Lasers is proud to present Soprano ICE Platinum, featuring trio clustered diode technology. The Platinum edition combines 3 laser wavelengths into a single innovative handpiece, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths as well as anatomical structures within the hair follicle. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, along with the treatment coverage, comfort and low maintenance of the diode laser, Soprano ICE Platinum achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today.
3 combined wavelengths covering the optimal treatment spectrum
Proven safety record
All skin types, even tanned skin
How does this machine differ from others?
Soprano ICE is an advanced hair removal platform that incorporates multiple laser wavelengths and technologies. It offers power and versatility that allows the treatment of the widest range of patients and hair types all year round. It has a cooling tip on the applicator, keeping the skin cool and protecting it from burns and heat injury, this also ensures comfort of the patient. Throughout the treatment the therapist will be consistently moving the handpiece in a gliding motion over the desired treatment area, this will help ensure that all the follicles in the area are targeted and heating up to the desired temperature for denaturation of the hair follicle and thus leading to hair removal.
Is hair removal using this machine really painless?
Soprano ICE Platinum uses Alma Laser's SHR method, which is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The unique heating and energy delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle while preventing injury and pain to the surrounding tissues. At the same time, integrated ICETM tech cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain.
Is hair removal using this machine safe?
Absolutely, Soprano ICE Platinum's SHR method has been proven in multiple clinical studies as the safest method of laser hair removal for all skin types. With SHR, hair follicles are damaged not by a single pulse of high energy which can injure the skin, but by repetitive short energy pulses. These pulses produce heat build-up which gradually raises the temperature of the dermis to the level needed for preventing hair growth while minimising the risk of burns.
Can we treat darker skin types?
Yes. While melanin in dark skin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment, Soprano ICE's SHR method has been clinically proven to be safe for dark skin types. Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to the skin with a high melanin count, SHR gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This makes SHR the safest laser removal option, including for dark skinned patients.
Can we treat skin that just tanned? E.g during summer?
Yes. Soprano ICE's SHR method affects the melanin of the skin sing a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin. Furthermore, sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following SHR treatment.
What is the treatment duration like?
While Soprano ICE Platinum offers the faster laser hair removal solution available today, the duration of the tratment can vary depending on the patient's skin colour, hair type and the area(s) being treated. Treatment time can range from a few seconds for a small area such as the upper lip to 8 minutes for the entire back. Either way, it is extremely quick.
How many treatments do I need?
This is completely dependent on the patient's skin and hair type, results are typically seen following 6 to 8 sessions.
