Soprano XL Pain Free Laser Hair Removal
Used By: All the Hollywood actresses use laser hair removal to get preened before film shoots. You can get different types of lasers but the Soprano XL technique is pain-free, so you can lie back and read (a script or a book) or just relax while it’s being done.

What Happens? You’re met by a therapist, who takes your medical details and explains what the treatment will be like.
Having had VPL hair treatment before, I have to admit I was sceptical it could be pain free. IPL and VPL heat up the skin to 100 degrees so the hair follicle pops out at the root, which is not entirely pleasant. The nozzle is shaped like a bar code scanner and the therapist has one chance of pointing it on an area.
However, the Soprano XL laser heats up to 50 degrees and it works by providing a continous source of heat to an area. This means there is no chance of missed patches as the therapist can work the nozzle repeatedly on an area. The area feels nicely warm – like you’re on a sunbed – rather than being painful. Seriously, if I closed my eyes and had to guess what treatment I was having, I would not have said hair removal as it was actually quite therapeutic.
But did it work? I’ve had one session so far on my bikini line so I’ll let you know when I’ve done the next one. You’re advised to leave 4-6 weeks between appointments to fit in with your hair’s growth cycle.
Cost? Treatment to give you a smooth Brazilian is £150 per session or £750 for a course of 5. A small price to pay for no more waxing down there EVER! See the treatment menu online for prices of other areas like lip, chin and legs
