Laser Hair Removal in Skinmed Clinic
Because not all the Clinics nor the Devices are the same
Let’s talk about the most popular laser treatment in the world…
Did you know...
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The mechanism of action is represented by an association of specific wavelengths for melanin, the pigment which determines the colour of the hair and skin, which are absorbed by the bulb (root) of the hair, leading to the irreversible destruction of the hair follicles. The patented mechanisms by Alma like SHR (Super Hair Elimination) works in movement and cooling during the procedure, thus increasing the safety of the procedure and the patient comfort.
At a moment in time, hair follicles can be in all 3 stages of growth in the same time. There are 3 stages of growth: anagen, catagen and telogen.

The pulsed intense light (IPL) laser has as target chromophores both melanin and hemoglobin, with non-selective wavelength 500-1000 nm and absorption in the dermal hair follicles, but also in the epidermis, with the risk of adverse effects. Laser treatments are adapted to the depth of the hair follicles to destroy the vast majority of them, and absorption in the epidermis is limited,so the risk of adverse reactions is minimal, and can be used for the tanned skin and for light colored strands.
Anyone can perform this treatment to remove unwanted hair. There are also medical indications such as folliculitis associated with classical hair removal techniques or medical conditions such as hypertrichosis (presence of excess hair) or hirsutism (presence of male hair loss in areas where there is not normally such as facial hair).
Soprano Titanium is the state-of-the-art laser technology, world-renowned, with the highest efficiency for hair removal. It has a Quatro 3D end, a new, unique, and efficient applicator, with a spot size of 4 cm2, for faster treatments and a more pleasant experience for the patient. The embedded technology is 3D Trio wavelengths including 755 nm Alexandrite, 810 nm Diode and 1064 nm Nd-YAG to target all hair follicles.
Alma Lasers patented the SHR working technique with efficient cooling of the epidermis and working on the move to deliver sufficient energy per unit area.
ICE plus is an advanced technology that continuously cools the skin and facilitates a controlled and uncomfortable temperature associated with the patient throughout the treatment. Thus, patients will have a pain-free or heat / burn experience throughout the session, while ensuring the best clinical outcomes.
Hair growth is a cyclical process, alternating the resting phases with the activity ones. At the same time, the hairs are in different stages of growth.
- The first phase – the anagen phase – represents a period of rapid growth of the hair. During this period, the hair is formed and migrates outward until its definitive formation. During the anagen phase, the hair grows by 1 cm per month. The longer the duration of this phase, the more hair will grow. About 85-90% of the hair on the scalp is in the anagen phase at some point.
- The second phase – the catagen phase – lasts for 2 weeks, during which the hair follicle shrinks due to disintegration and the papillae decrease in size. While the hair does not grow in this phase, the length of the terminal hairs increases due to the follicle pushing them up.
- The last phase is the telogen phase or the rest phase. The hair follicle remains in a dormant state for one to four months. 10-15% of the scalp hairs are in this growth phase at a given time. This phase results in the normal hair loss.
TRIO technology, included in the SOPRANO applicator, guarantees the destruction of over 95% of the hair follicles, a result proven by histology studies. For large areas (such as the lower limbs or the arms) a periodicity between sessions of 6-8 weeks is recommended, and for small areas (facial or armpit) 4-6 weeks. On average, it is recommended to carry out 6-8 sessions per treatment area, with maintenance at 6-12 months.
Yes, the hair follicles are irreversibly destroyed in a percentage of over 95%, but over the years new hair follicles can appear and maintenance sessions are required for 6 months to 1 year.
The QUATRO technology is patented by Alma Laser, being the only laser with an applicator of 4 cm2 which considerably reduces the working time, especially for large areas, such as the lower limbs. If until now this procedure lasts 60-90 minutes, now the time is halved and the patient must spend in the cabinet 30-40 minutes. For small areas, the time is between 10-20 minutes. After optimizing the efficiency by combining the three most efficient wavelengths, the working time has now been optimized, reducing by half.
For the state-of-the-art Soprano Titanium / Platinum technology, the ICE plus patent minimizes the risk of burning to the skin surface, while keeping the heat in the dermis where the hair follicles are targeted. While the end cools the skin surface, it prevents superficial burns and the sensation of pain.
The melanocytic lesions should be initially visualized with the dermatoscope, to be covered during the treatment. The risk of transformation of the lesions is raised only when the treated skin suffers post-treatment burns. Side effects are rare, among them being erythema, irritation or pigmentation changes, these being the most common.
