The Soprano ICE Platinum System
The revolutionary Soprano ICE laser hair removal system is available at all Mayfair Aesthetic clinics.
Soprano ICE Platinum – Mayfair Aesthetics
Mayfair Aesthetics has chosen to work exclusively with the Soprano ICE Platinum & Titanium systems. The first and best laser hair removal systems featuring trio clustered diode technology, combining three laser wavelengths into a single applicator simultaneously treating different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicles.
By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, along with the treatment coverage, comfort and virtually pain-free treatment of the diode laser, Soprano ICE Platinum achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today.
What is Soprano ICE Platinum?
Soprano ICE Platinum is the revolutionary laser hair removal system from ALMA lasers.
The Platinum edition features trio clustered diode technology that combines 3 laser wavelengths into a single handpiece to target different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicle.
This means Soprano ICE Platinum delivers a virtually pain-free experience for all skin types, including tanned skin.
How does Soprano ICE platinum work?
Soprano ICE Platinum uses ground-breaking trio clustered diode technology developed by ALMA lasers to target different structures within the hair follicle.
The sweeping In-motionTM delivery technique keeps the laser in constant motion ensuring each patient receives full coverage throughout each session
Soprano’s unique applicators overcome many of the challenges faced by other traditional hair removal systems regarding skin types, hair types and hair densities by emitting up to 150 laser beams per second.
Alma’s cooling technology cools the skin surface – preventing discomfort and side effects and allowing for virtually painless yet highly effective hair removal.
SHR™ is Alma Laser’s proprietary hair removal method used by laser professionals clinics all over the world. It is the only hair removal system, clinically proven to deliver safe & virtually painless hair removal for all skin types – including dark and tanned skin.
SHR works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue.
The Soprano ICE Platinum incorporates Alma’s SHR method, ensuring patients experience safe and comfortable hair removal and do not expose hair follicles to single high energy pulses which may cause trauma to the skin
What does Soprano ICE Platinum feel like?
Soprano ICE Platinum patients normally report a gentle warming sensation. Sometimes sensitive patients may experience a mild pins and needles sensation.
Benefits and results
Key benefits of Soprano ICE Platinum are virtually painless, permanent laser hair removal. The vast majority of clients experience permanent reduction of hair growth after 6-8 sessions. A good responder should see a 60-90% reduction in hair growth.

Before Platinum Laser Treatment
Apart from shaving, avoid any other hair removal method such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks prior to your Platinum ICE hair removal treatment ( and throughout your course).
You should also avoid sunbeds or any kind of fake tan for 2 weeks and normal sun exposure for 1 week prior to treatment.
Around 8 hours before your visit, you should shave areas to be treated or patch tested. Areas should be smooth and stubble free for your treatment. Any medications that may cause photosensitivity (an increased sensitivity to light and heat) may prevent us from treating you.
If you have any questions, please speak to one of our laser therapists.
After Soprano Platinum Laser Treatment
After your Soprano Platinum treatment, you may experience slight sensitivity and mild redness.
This is perfectly normal and we recommend Aloe Vera gel as an excellent way to calm and soothe the skin. You can use Aloe Vera gel straight from the fridge.
For any areas treated that are exposed to sunlight, you should protect your skin with factor 30-50 SPF sunscreen. We stock Aloe Pura SPF 50 Aloe Vera sunscreen that will protect you while cooling and soothing.
After your laser treatment, please avoid avoidable heat such as hot baths, showers, saunas, and steam rooms. You should also avoid vigorous exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation.
Our team is always on hand to provide you with ongoing advice and support – even after your final session is complete.
Who can be treated?
The Soprano ICE Platinum is suitable for any skin type (Fitzpatrick 1-6) including skin that is tanned (wait 1 week after sun exposure). Our system uses 3 different laser light wavelengths to target the widest possible range of hair colours and textures.
We can only treat clients aged 18 or over.
Who can’t be treated?
Unfortunately there are some cases where we cannot administer laser hair removal treatments. As Soprano lasers target the melanin pigment within the hair follicle, ginger, white or grey hair will not be affected by the laser. The more melanin in the hair, the more effective the laser treatment tends to be.
Very fine hair (vellus hair) may also not be the best candidate for laser hair removal because hair lacking sufficient density may not contain enough melanin for an effective result.
Other scenarios include:
- Clients who are on regular daily antibiotics
- Clients taking Accutane or similar anti-acne medications or who have been taking Accutane during the past 6-12 months
- Patients who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant
- Anyone who is sunburned or has had significant sun exposure less than 1 week prior to treatment
- Anybody with peeling skin or has a fake tan
- Clients with light sensitive epilepsy, vitiligo, type 1 diabetes, history of keloid scarring or lupus.
- Clients currently taking any medication or herbal supplement that may cause photo-sensitivity. It is advisable to seek a doctor’s note in this case before commencing treatment
Anyone with a history of cold sores to the treatment area should start taking an anti-viral medication for 3 days before and after treatment
Is Soprano Platinum safe?
Soprano Ice Platinum system is one of the safest laser hair removal systems in the world. Rather than delivering all the laser energy in shots such as with traditional laser systems, the applicator is passed back and forth over the area to be treated so that energy and warmth builds up over a few seconds.
At Mayfair Aesthetics there is an extremely low risk of complications arising as our experienced practitioners operate the laser for a given skin type following the correct treatment protocols.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser hair removal will only treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth. Approximately 10-15% of the hair in any particular area will be at this phase at any given time.
Each laser hair removal treatment spaced 4-8 weeks apart will treat different hairs at this stage of their life cycle. This means you should see a roughly 10-15% reduction in hair per treatment.
Most clients choose a course of 6 to 8 treatments per area. Sometimes more treatments are required for more resistant areas such as the face or private area.
Shaving Before my Platinum Laser Treatment
Before your Platinum ICE laser treatment, you will need to shave any area to be treated with laser to ensure the session is safe and effective.
The optimal time to shave is around 8 hours before your appointment time. Doing so gives your your skin time to calm down and allows any redness to fade while still leaving a smooth surface for the laser to treat.
If you do not shave before your laser treatment, the laser will mainly heat up the hair outside the skin rather than the root structures as required.
As this presents an increased risk of side effects and will result in the treatment being ineffective or less effective, any client arriving for their laser treatment unshaven will not be able to receive a treatment.
If you are a male client, Mayfair Aesthetics offer shaving for the back and shoulder areas. There is small charge of £10 per visit. Speak to our reception team to arrange a shaving appointment around 8 hours prior to your laser treatment.
