The Truth About “The Best” Laser Hair Removal Device

By: Our Team


Laser Hair Removal has quickly become one of the most performed procedures in the nation and rightfully so. Just about everyone is familiar with the process of Laser Hair Removal but if you are not, here is how the process works at Aesthetic Med Studio in Springfield, Missouri: 

  • You make an appointment 
  • One of our highly trained Aestheticians consults with you and selects the right device for your skin type 
  • You shave the night before your Laser Hair Removal procedure 
  • We effectively and nearly painlessly perform the procedure 
  • If this was your first – third procedure, we rebook the next appointment within the correct time frame and then repeat.

Many of you may have noticed the word painless. Traditionally, Laser Hair Removal has been noted as a “highly uncomfortable” procedure. Many that have done Laser Hair Removal in the past have even claimed that it felt like a “hot rubber band snap.” At Aesthetic Med Studio, this is a thing of the past. As we all know, technology is always advancing. We pride ourselves in being a leader of technology in not only Springfield, Missouri but in the United States. We think about it this way: the better the technology, the better your results.

With that being said, we should all keep in mind that every salesperson is always selling the “gold standard.” This is no different with laser technologies. That is where our job comes in. To truly understand which devices are the best, we do extensive studies on each device. We bring in every different Laser Hair Removal device and we try them all out. There are several different things to look for when we talk about “The Best” Laser Hair Removal device. Here is how we break it down: 

  • Patient Comfort 
  • Efficacy of treatment (your results) 
  • Cost per treatment for patient 
  • How long does one treatment take

After dense research and a demo of almost 15 different Laser Hair Removal devices we found the absolute best device on the market. The Alma Soprano ICE Platinum. Many devices will not do all hair and skin types, but this device has no issue with that at all. Thin hair, ethnic skin, no problems. All of the other Laser Hair Removal devices in the nation have one or two wavelengths that they would be able to use to try to achieve your desired results. The Soprano ICE Platinum at Aesthetic Med Studio is a limited-edition platform featuring trio clustered diode technology.

The Platinum edition combines 3 laser wavelengths into a single innovative hand-piece, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths as well as anatomical structures within the hair follicle. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, treatment coverage, patient comfort and efficacy of this laser stand second to none. It is the only clinically proven method of LaserHair Removal that is virtually painless.Soprano ICE Platinum at Aesthetic Med Studio in Springfield, MO achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today. The image to the right depicts your hair follicle and how the Soprano ICE hits it at three separate levels in order to deliver the highest results possible.

Many places in Springfield, Missouri will tell you to “not shave” before an appointment. This is mostly said so you can “visibly see your results.” However, it actually impairs how the energy from the laser is delivered. If the energy of the laser has to travel through the hair and then down into the follicle, much of the energy will have diminished by the time it gets to the areas it needs. At Aesthetic Med Studio, we always strive for the best possible results, which is why we have you shave before your appointment. This also makes the procedure much less painful.

What to Expect During and After Procedure:

You can expect to have a highly professional experience during your procedure. We hold a very high standard for our employees. We spend thousands of dollars on advanced training each year so that we can give you the best treatment and results. The procedure itself is relatively painless and almost all of our patients do not need numbing cream. However, if you would like to have a topical numbing agent (just in case) we can have that ready for you. Once the treatment is over, you will not have any lingering pain, or hot sensations or anything of the sort. You may continue with your day as normal.

We would like for you to think of Laser Hair Removal as Laser Hair Reduction. Across all laser hair removal platforms, the goal is to trick your body into thinking “we don’t need to grow hair in this area.” Which leads us into the, “how many treatments will I really need to remove my hair.” Everyone is different, for instance: if you have an ethnic background and have thick coarse hair you could expect to have drastically reduced hair growth with 3 – 4 treatments. This means instead of shaving everyday one would expect to shave once every couple of weeks. However, to completely remove growth you could realistically expect to do 6 treatments to completely on more dense hair growth areas. We typically tell most people to plan for 4-6 treatments for their ideal results.
