Laser Hair Removal
How many times have you wished you no longer had to shave, pluck or wax unwanted hair? Well, now you can with the Laser Hair Removal Soprano XL System® offered at Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic for a comfortable way to safely eliminate unwanted body hair.
Mederm Esthetics & Laser uses the revolutionary and patented In-Motion™ technology to safely and gently heat the targeted areas. This state-of-the-art procedure is specially designed to remove unwanted hair fast, more comfortably with fewer visits. You can even treat sensitive areas without the discomfort of other systems. By using a sweeping, paintbrush technique, the procedure is shorter, more comfortable and provides great results.
Our method gently heats targeted hair follicles with gentle pulses of laser energy. The pulses of energy gradually heat the follicles in the skin’s sub dermal layer. By heating the hair follicles under the skin, the follicle can no longer produce new hair. Since the laser is in constant motion, your treatment area is wider, which makes sessions go by quickly. Nearly any part of the body can be treated safely and comfortably, including the face, neck, legs, arms, bikini line, back and stomach. The treatment offers an additional cooling mechanism that ensures the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout your entire treatment.
Earlier technologies used excessive heat to destroy the follicles causing blistering, burns and scarring. The Soprano XL low heat system prevents any of the prior damaging effects of previous methods. It is safer, faster and more effective. It is hair removal at its finest and treatments are suitable for all skin types, including tanned skin.
A treatment session is often completed in 5-15 minutes on a small body part and 20-30 minutes on the average man’s back. A minimum of 6-8 sessions are needed to ensure effective results.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What types of hair and skin are treated?
Any type of hair or skin can be treated, whether it’s fine or coarse plus lighter hair on all skin types.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Depending on the size of the targeted area, treatment takes five minutes to one hour per session. An example is the upper lip, underarms, or bikini line can be treated in about 5 minutes while larger areas like a woman’s leg can be treated in about 15 minutes.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Due to the laser’s effectiveness, some clients notice a quick response and benefit from only 2 to 3 sessions on small areas like underarms and the upper lip; however generally 6 to 8 treatments in total are sufficient to achieve permanent removal with follow-up maintenance thereafter.
What are the Side Effects?
You can expect to experience some mild redness in the treated area, but there is not down time and you can resume your normal activities after treatment. Depending on the size and location of the treated area, the redness may remain for a time, but it is mild, temporary and will fade away.
Do I Need to Prepare in Advance for Treatment?
There are some suggestions that your medical esthetician will advise you of before your first treatment, such as avoiding tanning for 4-6 weeks or shaving 24 hours prior to treatment. You can discuss additional precautions with your skin care specialist during your complementary consultation.
