If you are considering laser hair removal, you need to research it deeply. The procedure is painful for some people, while others only experience a little zap. Once you get it done, you don’t have to spend extra minutes in the shower or visit the beauty parlour every two weeks for waxing appointments. During a laser treatment, the melanin in your skin absorbs heat and kills hair follicles that contain growth cells.



A virtually painless technique, Soprano Laser uses infrared diode laser energy to fill cells of hair follicles, so they can no longer produce hair. This treatment is also called ice laser because the tip is cold. It takes a long time for it to heat up and even longer for the client to notice it.

It is a recommended procedure for people with sensitive skin because it doesn’t cause any itching or post-treatment redness. After you get the procedure, the treated part is completely hair-free, which means you won’t have to shave or wax ever again.

Dermatologist use different diodes for different areas of the body for effective hair removal. The applicator is smaller than those used by other treatments, making it more comfortable for the dermatologist and the client.

This technique is recommended to people who have a low pain threshold because it is a painless technique and requires fewer treatments. You won’t experience any discomfort throughout the procedure because the applicator uses lower power and cooling to deliver the high energy waves.

Since Soprano Laser uses only one wavelength of infrared rays, the treatment sessions are smaller and cover a larger area, which reduces the chances of post-treatment burns. The treatment is recommended to people who have sensitive skin and thin to medium-thick hair.


Venus Velocity Laser is another diode-based hair removal technique suitable for all skin types and hair thickness. It is more versatile than any other laser technology and comes fitted with a real-time cooling system, which checks the applicator’s temperature 1,000 times in a minute to control the temperature.

An ergonomically-designed applicator with three adjustments is used by the dermatologist to produce high energy waves that penetrate deep into the skin to kill growth cells in hair follicles. The dermatologist performs the procedure using two modes — pulse and slide. Used for areas with dense hair, pulse mode delivers high energy at a lower repetition rate to reduce the duration of the treatment. On the other hand, slide mode delivers high repetition rate at shorter pulses and is used in areas that are sparsely covered in hair.

Venus Velocity is the only laser hair removal device in the world which is integrated with Internet of Things. It helps to standardise the procedure and get the same results every time it is performed.

Both laser technologies are relatively new and have similar results. They are painless, effective, and work well for different hair colours and thickness. Try any of these techniques today and say goodbye to waxing appointments.
