The number of required treatments:

There are several factors that can affect the quantity of treatments you will need, but generally after each treatment, you will notice a permanent decrease in the amount of hair that regrow on the treated area. Typically, 4 to 6 treatments are required to permanently reduce the amount of re-growing hairs depending on the targeted area and effectiveness of the treatments (Laser hair removal treatment typically is done in a sequence of sessions that take place in four to eight-week intervals).
The first appointment consists of a consultation with the laser specialist who will be performing the procedure. At this meeting, the patient will learn what to expect from the treatment and have the opportunity to ask questions about the laser hair removal process.

The Soprano laser has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide securely and effectively since approved by the FDA in 2005.
Most people find it very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage”.
