Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted hair can be hard to maintain. Whether you end up plucking it, waxing it, or shaving it, it just keeps coming back. It is a never-ending cycle, which can frustrate many individuals. Thanks to technology, we now have the ability to rid our bodies of this unwanted hair for good with laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is offered by Dr. Lee at East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center.

Alma Soprano Platinum - The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute - Walnut Creek, CA
It isn't every day that you come across beauty solutions that deliver as promised. Alma Lasers' innovative Soprano Ice Platinum laser has three lasers working together to provide a smooth and incredible result when extracting hair follicles from the skin. Its ingenuity is evident from the technology that leaves behind smooth skin without any harm or damage, leaving it silky and smooth.

The right light, the right angle, the right touch. The most beautiful skin deserves to be touched by the peak of technology. Introducing the Soprano Ice Platinum by Alma lasers. The most innovative and effective laser hair solution featuring the world’s first clinically proven trio-clustered diode technology. Three laser wave lengths combined into one safe, synergetic treatment covering the optimum spectrum. Achieving virtually painless results on all skin tones including tan skin. The Soprano Ice Platinum targets unwanted hair at three different structures and depths within the hair follicle simultaneously. A 3-in-1 applicator for smoother silkier skin effortlessly. Soprano Ice Platinum: the Power of Three.

Several treatments are necessary in order to obtain the best results. This is due the fact that our hair grows in cycles. During one treatment, not all cycles of hair growth will be targeted, since some may be dormant. By completing several sessions over a number of months, patients will then experience the best, promised results. In addition, it is always a good idea to have maintenance treatments every year or two to target any new hair follicle growth that may occur. However, if you’re constantly paying for waxes, razors, and depilatory creams, this is a minor investment in saving you from day-to-day grooming expenses.

Here at the Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, we are always searching for the latest innovation to save you time and provide the best results. That’s why we’re proud to say we are the first practice in the area to offer patients the Soprano Ice Platinum laser for hair removal. This is considered the most advanced solution available. It comes with the first 3-in-1 applicator to provide effective results for all colors and types of hair. Afraid your dark and coarse body hair won’t respond to laser hair removal? Don’t be, the Soprano Ice Platinum has you covered. No longer will the time of year affect when you can get a hair removal treatment either, as this is effective on even tanned skin. We also love the Soprano Ice Platinum for the speed of treatment. Your appointment time for treatment just got even shorter! This laser works for hair removal on any part of the body, including the ears, nostrils, and bikini line.

If you’re also hesitant to receive laser hair removal out of anxiety about pain, don’t be! The Soprano Ice Platinum uses the Alma Laser’s SHR method. This is the only clinically proven method that is practically painless. The combination of heating and cooling elements ensures that the surrounding tissue to the hair follicle avoids injury and pain is avoided.

Laser hair removal requires no downtime and involves little discomfort during treatment. Many describe it as a tingling feeling as the laser targets the hair follicles. It is a wonderful way for those who have struggled with unwanted hair to tackle it head on, finally. Patients who have undergone laser hair removal have been extremely satisfied with the results, and are happy to have their unwanted hair worries addressed.

If you are considering laser hair removal, or are in the process of researching your options and have questions, contact Dr. Lee at East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center today to schedule a consultation appointment. During this time, you can undergo a dermatological evaluation and find out if you are a viable candidate for treatment.
