Any medical laser procedure can be a bit intimidating at first. Learn more about Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ here, so you’ll feel completely comfortable with the procedure.

Is it safe?

Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers. Pain-Free, Hair-Free‘s Soprano®XL laser has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

How many treatments will I need?

There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you’ll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Typically, it will require 4 – 6 treatments or more to permanently reduce the number of regrowing hairs by more than 80%, six months after the last treatment.

Will my hair ever grow back?

The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may be only stunned and will need to be retreated.

Do I need to plan for time off, for the treatments?

No. Pain-Free, Hair-Free requires no “down time” or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

Who is it for?

Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ is for everyone. It’s safe for all skin types, hair types and most hair colors. It can even be used on tanned skin. The bottom line is – if you have hair where you wish you didn’t, Pain-Free, Hair-Free is for you.

The treatment process is permanent, predictable, and virtually pain-free. You’ll go through a series of office visits to see the full benefits.

Whos_it_forWhere it’s for?
Patients seek treatment for almost any body part, including legs, arms, bikini line, backs, stomachs, face or neck.

What you can expect?
You can expect results from a series of relatively short sessions. (The actual time depends mainly on the size of the area you are having treated.) A trained doctor, nurse or laser technician performs each treatment and you are free to return to normal activities immediately after each session.

Because of Pain-Free, Hair-Free’s unique technology, treatment sessions can be virtually pain-free. Other benefits include:
• Complete coverage with no missed spots
• Fast treatment times
• Few side effects
• Return to normal activities immediately (no recovery or “down time”)
• Safe for all skin types, including tanned skin

Pain-Free, Hair-Free uses the most successful photoepilation wavelength (810 nm), which makes it the gold standard for laser hair removal. In addition, a patented DualChill™ mechanism ensures the surface of your skin stays cool and even more comfortable throughout your treatment.

How does it work?

Pain-Free, Hair-Free works by using pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of skin until they can no longer produce new hair. Using unique, IN-Motion™ technology and a patented DualChill™ treatment tip, the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable. The sweeping motion also eliminates any skipped or missed spots common to other types of laser hair removal.

How is it different?

Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ breaks the mold of previous laser hair removal systems. The system’s unique IN-Motion™ technology, along with the sweeping motion of the laser, safely and gently heats the targeted area under your skin while you stay comfortable. Most people find Pain-Free, Hair-Free very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage.”
