Tired of shaving and waxing? The Soprano ICE Laser Hair Removal System offers a safe, quick and painless alternative for permanent hair reduction with virtually no downtime. It is clinically proven to remove unwanted hair and it is available for all areas of the body, and all skin types. To achieve smooth, hair free legs, underarms, bikini line and to remove unwanted facial hair, laser hair removal can be an ideal way to avoid daily or weekly waxing, shaving or using depilatory creams.
Laser Hair Removal helps to reduce the incidence of ingrown hairs that can arise from shaving or waxing. Ingrown hairs can be painful and embarrassing and can cause pigmentation. Laser Hair Removal is also a way of combatting unwanted or embarrassing hair growth and we will work with you to find the best treatment programme of laser hair removal to achieve your desired outcome.
The Soprano ICE gently heats targeted hair follicles with gentle pulses of laser energy, and thanks to the in-built cooling systems you stay comfortable throughout the treatment. Nearly any part of the body can be treated safely and comfortably without pain, including the face, neck, legs, bikini line, underarms, arms, back and stomach. It is also very effective for all skin types as well as different hair types for both men and women.

How does laser hair removal work?
The Soprano ICE uses Laser technology at an 810nm wavelength with an advanced IN-MOTION™ method for virtually pain free hair removal. This advanced technology can reduce hair growth by gently raising the temperature within the hair follicle (the melanin in the hair follicle attracts the laser energy) which causes damage to the follicle’s germ cells but without damaging the skin surface or surrounding tissue.
The sweeping IN-MOTION™ technique ensures that the laser is in constant motion, ensuring full coverage and a speedy treatment.
In addition, a patented DualChill mechanism for cooling ensures that the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout your treatment. This is an excellent advantage of this system, resulting in a smooth treatment.
Although you’ll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs after your first treatment, we typically recommend 6-8 treatments to permanently reduce the number of re-growing hairs by more than 80%. The best package of treatments for you can be discussed at your consultation.
What is involved during the Soprano ICE treatment?
Your Aesthetic Therapist will first perform an in-depth consultation and your medical history will be taken, to ensure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent form at this time which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated.
Your Aesthetic Therapist will then perform a patch test on the area that you would like to treat so you can feel the sensation of the treatment and so we can make sure there is no adverse reaction. Your first treatment will then be booked in the diary for a convenient time to suit you. (You only have to wait 24 hours after the patch test of Soprano ICE to go ahead with treatment.)
The procedure will start with a cleanse of the area to remove any impurities on the surface and your therapist will then apply a cool gel over the area to be treated. The Soprano ICE hand piece will then be gently applied to the area working in-motion and in sections. The gel will then be removed and the area cleansed. If the face has been treated we will apply aloe gel and an SPF. For all body areas just aloe gel is applied to soothe and calm the skin.
Can all skin types be treated?
Yes, the Soprano ICE can be used on all skin types, all year round, even with an active tan, and can be used on most hair types. Patch tests must be performed to ensure that you have no adverse reaction to the laser hair removal.
Does it hurt?
The Soprano ICE treatment is pain free and most clients report it as being a relaxing treatment. The advanced technology and in built cooling system means that the skin does not overheat and cause unpleasant sensations.
What is the skin appearance after the treatment?
The skin can appear slightly flushed straight after treatment, but this will generally fade after a few hours of treatment. We apply aloe gel post treatment to calm any reaction and soothe the skin, making sure that you are comfortable.
When will I see results?
You will start to see results about 2 weeks after your first treatment and the results will improve over the course. During your consultation, your therapist will explain the process of how the hair removal works and what to expect. It is also a chance for you to ask any questions.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a course of 6 treatments, at 4 – 6 weekly intervals. Top up treatments may be need after the course is finished, but this varies from person to person.
‘This machine is amazing! My bikini line was full of ingrown hairs (and scars from picking them) and after a course of Soprano XL it looks as through I’ve never had an ingrown hair before. I can swim without having to think about shaving or waxing and I wonder how I ever found the time before – thank you to the Jill Zander team.’ - T.M, Hampton Court
‘I have tried different machines in the past with no results and felt like giving up. I’m so glad I tried the Soprano XL , I haven’t shaved in months!’ - K.F, Hinchley Wood
