LASER HAIR REMOVALThe Hogarth Medispa are excited to launch the most advanced laser hair removal device on the market: Soprano ICE Titanium.
Laser Hair Removal - With Soprano ICE Titanium
The Soprano Titanium is the most latest advancement in laser hair removal technology, combining three of the most effective laser wavelengths into a single applicator. This means that the laser will damage the hair at three different follicle depths at the same time.
• Comfortable, pain-free treatments
• Suitable and safe for all skin types and tones
• 40% shorter treatment times
• Maximum efficiency from exclusive 3D technology
40% FASTER TREATMENTS
Larger applicator size, shorter treatment times
Soprano Titanium features TRIO 4cm2, a unique and efficient new applicator with an especially large spot size of 4cm2, capable of working on a grid of 600cm square. This breakthrough applicator makes treatments much faster and virtually painless, significantly cutting treatment times and ensuring a more comfortable experience for patients.
Improved contact cooling for maximum comfort
ICE Plus is an advanced technology that continuously cools skin and facilitates range-controlled temperature throughout the entire treatment. The ICE Plus™ cold sapphire tip minimizes epidermal risks while maintaining heat within the dermis where hair follicles are treated. Temperature remains controlled and constant which contributes to the diode's efficiency. Patients can now enjoy a virtually painless, cool and comfortable experience throughout the session.
CLINICALLY PROVEN 3D TECHNOLOGY
Combining three different wavelengths for effective targeting
Featuring its exclusive 3D technology, Soprano Titanium combines the three most effective laser wavelengths into a single applicator, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicle. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of different wavelengths, along with extended treatment coverage, increased comfort and low maintenance requirements, Soprano Titanium is the safest and most efficient hair removal treatment available today. 3D technology for one superior hair removal solution.
'ALEX', 'SPEED' AND 'YAG' LASER WAVELENGTHS
The 755nm wavelength based on the Alex laser, offers a strong absorption by the chromophore melanin. This makes the 755nm an ideal wavelength in the removal of fine and light colored hair.
The 810nm wavelength is the gold standard for laser hair removal. It balances safety with efficacy by possessing good absorption in melanin and relatively deep penetration.
The 1064nm wavelength is characterized by lower melanin absorption, making it a perfect solution for darker skin types. The 1064nm also offers deep penetration targeting the bulb and papilla of the hair follicle. With water and hemoglobin absorption, the 1064nm wavelength increases the thermal profile of the overall treatment, leading to highly effective hair removal, especially for deep hair follicles.
SHR™ - Alma's proprietary hair removal innovation
The only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless, and it is the safest laser hair removal method for all skin types, including dark and tanned skin. Its unique gradual heating and high frequency pulse delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle and hinders re-growth, while preventing injury to the surrounding tissue. SHR™ protects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed on all skin types anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin.
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a state-of-the-art procedure designed to remove unwanted hair faster and more comfortably than ever before. With SHR, you can receive treatment regardless of skin colour or season, and can even treat sensitive areas without any discomfort.
The secret to SHR’s virtually pain free treatment is the method by which the hair follicle is damaged. By using a sweeping, paintbrush technique with low doses of energy applied multiple times to the hair follicle, the SHR procedure is shorter than other laser methods, move comfortable and gives top results.
SHR works by gradually heating targeted hair follicles with gentle pulses of laser energy. Because the laser is constantly in motion, treatment is more similar to a hot stone massage than traditional laser hair removal where single high dose of energy is applied to the hair follicle, resulting in both pain and potential burns.
Nearly any part of the body can be treated safely and comfortably, including the face, neck, legs, arms, bikini line, back and stomach.

How is Soprano Titanium different from other Soprano hair removal systems?
Together with the 3D, Simultaneous lasing of the three most effective laser wavelengths for hair removal (755nm, 810nm and 1064nm) already presented in the Platinum version, the Titanium comes with the QuattroTM, an extra-large spot size covering an enormous grid of 600-900 cm2, shortening treatment time by 40%!
The unique ICE technology revealed in the Soprano ICE and Platinum versions is upgraded in Soprano Titanium to ICE Plus – The most advanced cooling system, combining TEC and Inverter cooling technologies to offer an unparallel treatment experience for the patient.
Soprano Titanium’s superior feature-set is further enhanced with dual connectors, enabling sequential usage of two separate applicators, simplifying and shortening treatment procedures.
As previous Soprano versions, Soprano Titanium features SHR the groundbreaking in-motion™ technology that ensures full coverage while ICE Plus tech cools the skin surface – preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually painless, yet highly effective hair removal.
What Are The Benefits of Soprano Titanium Laser?
• Smooth, Hair-Free Skin. The combined technologies and features of Soprano Titanium can help give you smooth, hair-free skin.
• Comfortable, Pain-Free Treatments.
• Suitable for all skin types and tones.
• Fast and Safe Treatment.
When Will I See Results?
Most people begin to see optimal results between 6-8 treatments. During each treatment, we will treat hairs at different stages of their cycle. Most clients are expected to see approximately a 10-15% reduction in hair per treatment. After six treatments you can expect to see around a 90% reduction in hair regrowth.
How Do I Prepare Before My Laser Treatment?
Apart from shaving, avoid any other hair removal method such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks prior to treatment and throughout your course. Avoid sunbeds or any kind of fake tan for 2 weeks and normal sun exposure for 1 week prior to treatment. You should shave areas to be treated or patch tested around 8 hours before your visit, areas should be smooth and stubble free for treatment. Medications that may cause photosensitivity (an increased sensitivity to light and heat) may prevent us from treating you.
What Is The Aftercare For Laser Hair Removal?
After treatment you may experience mild redness or slight sensitivity. Aloe Vera gel is excellent to calm and soothe the skin and works well straight from the fridge. For any areas treated that are exposed to sunlight, you should protect your skin with a 50 SPF sunscreen.
After the laser treatment avoid heat such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam rooms for 24-48 hours. Avoid vigorous exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation.
Is Laser Hair Removal with Soprano Titanium Safe For Dark Skin?
Yes. While the melanin in dark skin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment, Soprano Titanium’s SHR method has been clinically proven to be the safe for dark skin types. Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to skin with a high melanin count, SHR gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This makes SHR the safest laser hair removal option, including for dark skinned patients.
Can Soprano Titanium Be Used in Summer?
Yes. Soprano Titanium’s SHR method affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin. Furthermore, sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following SHR treatment.
How Long Will It Take?
Actually Soprano Titanium is so fast you can do it during your lunch break.
Another amazing benefit of Soprano is its extra large treatment applicator (4 cm – twice as large as the normally used one). This means that the coverage area is much bigger, significantly shortening treatment times and making the entire hair removal process much more comfortable and convenient. You’ll be out and about in less time than ever before.
