Soprano ICE PLATINUM Pain-Free Laser Hair Removal designed especially for those with dark\tanned skin, sensitive skin, or even light skin & fine hair.
Mask Beauty Clinic Preston Is proud to introduce the amazing NEW Soprano ICE Platinum hair removal system, winner of ‘Most Innovative Treatment’ in the 2016 MyFaceMyBody awards and the first and only laser hair removal system featuring
TRIO CLUSTERED DIODE TECHNOLOGY, combining three laser wavelengths into a single applicator simultaneously treating different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicles. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, along with the treatment coverage, comfort and virtually pain free treatment of the diode laser, Soprano ICE PLATINUM achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today.
Why Soprano Ice Platinum?
SHRTM 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 and prevents re-growth, while preventing injury to the surrounding tissue. At the same time, ICETM tech cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain.
Proven Safety Record
SHRTM has been proven in multiple clinical studies as the safest method of laser hair removal for all skin types, including dark skin whereby melanin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment. Hair follicles are damaged not by a single pulse of high energy, but by repetitive short energy pulses. These pulses minimise the risk of burning to the skin, as it is the heat build-up which raises the temperature of the dermis to the level needed for preventing hair growth.
SHRTM affects the melanin of the skin using 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.
Full Coverage Rate
During SHRTM treatment, energy is applied over a large grid- not just the region of the hair follicle. In-motionTM technique collectively heats up and damages the hair follicles within the grid, ensuring full coverage and dramatically improving treatment results.
All Skin Types
Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to skin with a high melanin count, SHRTM gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This makes SHRTM the safest laser hair removal option, including for dark skinned patients.
Reaching the hard to reach The unique Facial Tip allows treatment of hard to reach areas, including the ears, nostrils and glabella.

Before your laser treatments:
Whilst having the laser treatment all forms of hair removal should be stopped Apart from shaving, avoid any other hair removal method such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks prior to treatment and throughout your course. Avoid sun exposure, sunbeds or any kind of fake tan for 2 weeks. You should shave areas to be treated or patch tested around 8 hours before your visit. We will discuss any medications in detail at your consultation.
After laser treatments:
After the laser treatment, you may experience mild redness or slight sensitivity. You will be advised to apply Aloe Vera gel.
The gel will be provided to you by your therapist. The Aloe Vera gel is excellent to calm and soothe the skin and works well straight from the fridge. For any areas treated that are exposed to sunlight, you should protect your skin with a factor 30-50 SPF sunscreen.
After the laser treatment avoid heat such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam rooms. Avoid vigorous exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation. Our team is always available to provide continuing advice and support even after your final session is complete.

Can I have laser hair removal If I have a sun tan:
Yes. You must wait at least 7 days after sun exposure before having a laser hair removal treatment and you should wait at least 7 days after treatment before having any sun exposure. Avoid sunbeds throughout a course of laser hair removal. For more information speak to your therapist.
Laser hair removal will only treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth, roughly 10-15% of the hair in any particular area will be at this phase at any time. Each treatment, 4-8 weeks apart will treat different hairs at this stage of their life cycle so you should see a roughly 10-15% reduction in hair per treatment. Most people will go for 6 to 8 treatments per area, possibly more for more resistant areas such as the face or private area.
It is necessary to shave all areas that are to be treated with laser to ensure the session is safe and effective. The optimal time to shave is around 8 hours before your appointment time. This allows your skin time to calm down and any redness to fade while still leaving a smooth surface for the laser to treat.
If hair has not been shaved, the laser will mainly attack hair outside the skin. This will not be comfortable and could present an increased risk of side effects. This will also result in the treatment being ineffective or less effective.
