Who is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
There are several things to consider when determining whether laser hair removal with the Soprano ICE system may be safe, appropriate, and effective for you. Some of the primary considerations regarding laser hair removal are hair color and skin tone. Generally speaking, patients with fair skin and dark hair achieve the most successful outcome with laser hair removal, because the laser works by targeting pigment within the hair follicle. For this same reason, patients with dark skin tones may not be eligible for treatment, as the laser energy can actually damage the highly pigmented skin. Additionally, laser hair removal should not be performed on tattooed skin. There are other conditions that may also disqualify patients from getting laser hair removal, like pregnancy or an active skin infection. Prior to starting a laser hair removal treatment course, our expert aesthetic team will perform a thorough skin evaluation and review of your health and medical history to ensure laser hair removal is an appropriate treatment option for you.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for long-lasting improvements. The state-of-the-art implementation of the Soprano ICE Platinum laser gives incredible results for men and women. While patients can enjoy the effects of the Soprano ICE Platinum laser hair removal treatment for years, laser hair removal is technically semi-permanent since some hair follicles may continue growing. Regardless, patients find that most hair follicles are gone after their treatment plan has concluded, and even if stray hairs are still growing, it is very easy to manage. Additional laser hair removal sessions can also take care of new growth and stragglers. Your laser hair removal session can cause discomfort but is not considered painful. You should feel a slight sting when the laser zaps each follicle. The cold sapphire tip of our Soprano ICE Platinum system will help keep you comfortable throughout your treatment. However, your technician might apply a local anesthetic on your skin before the treatment session for additional comfort. Since each hair follicle grows in a various stage, several treatments are usually recommended to target each hair when it's growing. Scheduling your sessions over a few weeks helps you get the most effective results and silky skin.
What Should I Expect After Laser Hair Removal?
Caring for your new smooth skin after laser hair removal is easy. The state-of-the-art treatment offers minimal discomfort and downtime. You may notice your skin appearing slightly red or swollen, similar to a mild sunburn, but this typically subsides within a few hours. After a few days, you'll see the treated hairs gradually fall out, leaving your skin smoother. Multiple sessions are often recommended for the best results, so make sure to follow any aftercare instructions our team provides you.

Laser Hair Removal Reviews
Extremely happy with my results so far. I saw Elizabeth for laser hair removal for my back, which I’m very self conscious about, and Elizabeth made me feel very comfortable. I can only assume her results are the same as everyone else but she’s very personable and her prices are very reasonable. I’m very happy to have found her. I’d giver her 10 stars out of 5 if I could. Thanks Elizabeth!
Elizabeth has been doing my skin care for 9 years! I first went to her when she worked for Providence in 2007... She is by far the most knowledgeable, experienced Aesthetician when it comes to the skin, laser hair removal and chemical treatments. She is the only one I can find in this area who does electrolysis hair removal. I have tried everything, and this works the best!! If you want results, Elizabeth will deliver. She always calls to follow up on anything she does, and she also teaches while she practices. She listens and and takes her time with procedures. I would highly recommend her.
I have received two laser hair removal treatments on my chest and am incredibly happy with the results. One month after my last procedure I can tell that a good portion of my hair is gone, and the remaining hair is thinner and less pronounced. Elizabeth is very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend her services for permanent hair removal.
I started seeing Elizabeth over the summer time for my laser hair removal. I had been looking for someone to do my laser for quite sometime and I didn’t know anyone, happen to meet her when I was in to meet Daniella who works in the same area. Elizabeth is extremely knowledgeable and explained how everything works (which personally I prefer) I didn’t go in with crazy expectations and was so pleasantly surprised after just the first session. Laser has changed my skin completely!! I had rarely any hair growth in my bikini area after that first session and it thinned out my hair. I haven’t had one ingrown hair since I started to laser and my skin is soft. Couldn’t be happier to continue being patient . -Denisse

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How does laser hair removal treatment work?
What areas are most common for laser hair removal treatment areas?
What will my skin look like right after my laser hair removal treatment?
Will the hair eventually regrow after laser hair removal treatments?
Laser hair removal using the Soprano® ICE technology offers long-lasting results, but it's considered a semi-permanent treatment. While the majority of hair follicles are eradicated through the course of your treatment plan, some follicles may continue growing. Any regrowth is usually finer and much more manageable, and additional laser hair removal sessions can target new growth or stragglers. Our team will work closely with you to ensure you achieve and maintain the desired smooth, hair-free appearance.
What should I do before and after my laser hair removal session?
Preparation for laser hair removal at our Bellevue, WA office is relatively simple. Avoid sun tanning, waxing, or plucking the area to be treated for about 4 to 6 weeks before the treatment. Shaving is allowed, and the area should be clean-shaven before your appointment. After the treatment, avoiding sun exposure and using sunscreen to protect the treated area is essential. Some redness and swelling are normal, but these will subside shortly. Avoid hot baths, saunas, or strenuous activities for the first 24 hours. Your technician will provide specific aftercare instructions tailored to your treatment, and following these guidelines will optimize your results and comfort.
