Firstly let’s debunk the mysteries behind the differences between IPL and laser, we know it’s a minefield. In very basic form, IPL uses scattered light whereas laser hair uses a monocromatic laser that targets the pigment in the hair follicle. Hair removal has come a long way since its humble IPL beginnings; the good news is that we now have far more effective hair removal technology available to us in the form of lasers.

At HLA we use the Soprano Ice, the latest generation of the award-winning Soprano laser hair removal system, chosen by advanced hair removal clinics and leading physicians around the world and for very good reason. Not only are the results second to none, we are also proud to be an approved NHS treatment provider.

Suitable for all areas of the body and all skin types with no pain or down time; this multi-award winning laser hair removal system is specifically designed to remove unwanted hair faster and more comfortably than ever before. Most importantly: it’s permanent.

6 to 10 sessions are typically required, all hair types except red or grey can be treated (Redheads: some of you may be the exception, do contact me for more information). The Soprano Ice is FDA-approved and suitable for all skin tones from the lightest to the darkest, including tanned skin. No need to interrupt your holiday schedule when arranging your laser appointments!
