At The Dorchester Clinic, we use the latest Soprano ICE Platinum Laser, the safest and the most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today. Whilst treating all skin types safely, effectively and virtually pain-free.
Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area, which is then absorbed by the pigment (colour) within the hair shaft and hair follicle. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and disables the hair forming cells.

Traditional lasers use single high intensity ‘shots’ to deliver laser energy. The Soprano Ice Platinum delivers energy in a different way utilising all 3 laser wavelengths which has been clinically proven to be more effective in reducing hair growth than using a single or dual wavelength laser.
The Soprano Ice Platinum has a sapphire cooling tip which constantly cools down the surface of the skin during treatment while the laser energy heats up hair follicles making this system virtually painfree. The device is also FDA approved for hair removal to ensure the highest safety profile for treatments.
The Soprano Ice Platinum is suitable for all skin types including tanned skin. This treatment is is not suitable for very pale blonde hair, ginger hair or white/ grey hairs.
Treatments are virtually pain free with the Soprano Ice Platinum. Most clients only experience a gentle warming sensation in the area being treated with some feeling a mild pins and needles sensation and stronger heat in more sensitive areas.
The Soprano Ice Platinum is the market leading system for treating darker skin types safely and effectively.
We recommend a minimum of 6 sessions, often patients will need more sessions as results will vary from person to person.
Facial hair and body hair grow at different rates.
It is recommended to attend an appointment every 4-6 weeks for facial areas and every 6-8 weeks for body areas.
Results can vary and some clients may take a little longer to start seeing results. Typically anything from 10%-100% of the hair treated may shed around 2-4 weeks after treatment.
As you progress through your course you should see less and less hair re-growing after each treatment and the hair becoming finer and less dense.
Avoid extended sun exposure for a week before and after treatment to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. Use sunscreen SPF 30 or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment on any areas exposed to daylight.
Avoid sun exposure, saunas, steam rooms, vigorous exercise, hot baths or showers and treat the skin gently, as if you had sunburn, for the first 48 hours after treatment.
A consultation and patch test are required prior to treatment to ensure you are fully informed about the treatment and will not have an adverse reaction.
The patch test is also when we will work out the best laser settings to use for you to get the best possible results and ensure the treatment is safe and comfortable.
