With most laser hair removal systems you will experience an “elastic band snap” however, the Pain-Free Hair-Free Soprano system makes it possible to treat even the most sensitive areas safely and comfortably. This patented sweeping In-Motion technique heats targeted hair follicles whilst the cool tip keeps the skin comfortable. The treatment is reported to feel similar to a “hot stone massage”.

Treatment will generally be done every 4-6 weeks and due to the nature of the hair growth cycle will take approximately 6-8 sessions, although this will vary from person to person.

Unfortunately there isn’t a guaranteed number of sessions to get rid of any tattoo, it is very much dependant on several factors such as skin type and colour, age of tattoo, depth and type of ink used.

Yes you will feel some pain. This is dependant on where the tattoo is on the body, how deep it is and your own personal pain threshold. People describe it from a flick of an elastic band to the feeling of hot fat splashing on the skin.
