Benefits of Soprano ICE

  • Pain-free and effective
  • Proven safety
  • Effective for all skin types, including dark and tanned skin
  • Year-round application
  • Full coverage rate


How Soprano ICE Laser Hair Removal works


During a Soprano ICE treatment, full coverage is obtained by applying the energy across a large grid using an In-Motion™ technique that collectively heats up and damages the hair follicles within the grid.

The advanced ICE™ technology works to cool the skin during treatment, creating a more effective and comfortable experience, and minimizing the risk of burns while maintaining heat within the dermis to effectively treat the targeted hair follicles. The result? A more effective hair removal solution that offers wowing results for all skin types, including dark skin.



What to Expect


Getting rid of unwanted hair certainly isn’t a new issue, but there’s never been a solution quite like Soprano ICE before now. As a long-term, effective, comfortable, and affordable laser hair treatment, you can expect to be more than satisfied with your treatments. Available at stand-alone treatments or in packages, you can expect to visit our clinic for between 6 to 8 Soprano ICE treatments to fully treat your desired area.

Unlike other laser hair removal treatments that painfully heat the skin with the potential for burning, Soprano ICE gradually heats the area, damaging the hair follicles while avoiding injury to the surrounding skin.



Proven Safety


Tested and proven in multiple clinical studies to be the safest laser hair removal treatment for all skin types, you can rest assured that you are safe with Soprano ICE. Dark skin is typically more sensitive to heat used in laser hair removal treatments do to the increase in melanin, but with Soprano ICE technology, patients with dark skin can enjoy pain-free laser hair removal. This is because hair follicles are treated with repetitive short energy pulses in place of single, high energy pulses. This technique minimizes the risk of burning the dermis in the process of treating the hair follicles.

Another safety feature built in to the Soprano ICE technology is the gradual heating of the skin, which safeguards the surrounding skin from pain and potential burning. The safety measures also apply to tanned skin that has been exposed to the sun, making Soprano ICE the best and only laser hair removal treatment available year-round, with less traumatic sun exposure post-treatment.

The newest of award-winning laser hair removal systems, Soprano ICE is used by leading physicians around the world.
