The Astrahealth Urgent Care Center located in Lyons Mall has rolled out a new type of laser hair removal technology that utilizes a cooling tip laser to provide “virtually painless” treatments.

AHC which is open 7 days a week invested in the Soprano ICE technology because it is one of the first lasers that can treat different skin types with one unit. The semi-permanent treatment usually takes between 4-6 sessions after an initial consultation by a physician. It uses a light impulse to heat the hair follicles to stop growth but leaves the surrounding skin intact.

According to the AHC, this process is the “gold standard in laser hair removal” and can be purchased to begin use in early September. One of the most interesting facts about the treatment is that most times the symptoms are mild and because of the cooling aspect, cause little to no need for aftercare.
