What’s the Difference Between Soprano Ice & New Soprano Ice Platinum?
Alma lasers, the manufacturer of Soprano Ice and Soprano Ice Platinum have been producing award winning laser hair removal systems for over 10 years. As new technology is invented, new systems are launched – here are a some of the significant differences between the old version and the platinum technology.
Soprano Ice Platinum Vs Other Laser Technologies
Soprano Ice Platinum
In July 2016, Alma Lasers launched the new Soprano Ice Platinum system. This revolutionary new system combines three laser wavelengths into a single applicator simultaneously treating different tissue depths as well as anatomical structures within the hair follicles. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, along with the treatment coverage and comfort of the diode laser, Soprano ICE Platinum achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today.
Rest assured, it is FDA Approved and has numerous clinical trial too with a proven safety record.
The Soprano ICE Platinum offers the synergistic benefit of the three most effective wavelengths for hair removal:
- Alex Technology: 755nm wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and colours, especially light coloured and fine hair.
- Speed™ Technology: 810nm is the classic wavelength to offer deeper penetration of the hair follicle and high average power, high repetition rate, and a large 2cm spot size for fast treatment.
- YAG Technology: 1064nm wavelength offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle making it an optimal solution for darker skin types.
The Soprano Ice system was a popular choice for the last few years for people looking for painless laser hair removal. This system has different attachments allowing the operator to use either the Speed™ Technology 810nm wavelength or the Alex Technology 755nm wavelength.
This system does not employ the YAG technology wavelength so is not the best choice for darker hair or skin types. Also as it will only work on 1 wavelength at a time rather than the Platinum’s 3 wavelengths, it is not as effective in reducing hair growth.
Both systems offer virtually painless, effective hair reduction but the new Soprano Ice Platinum system wins over it’s predecessor with the use of 3 laser wavelengths rather than 1.
