There is now a solution for men who are tired of shaving their head on a daily basis. The Soprano Diode Painless Laser Hair Removal System works very well for scalp hair. In fact, laser hair removal on the scalp requires less treatment sessions than it does on other parts of the body because the hair on the head is in a state that is particularly susceptible to the laser. The Soprano is a uniquely pain free system that works in a way different from most other lasers.
Instead of a pulse method of treatment, the Soprano treats in a continuous motion. The laser energy does not go into the skin as a painful blast, but rather heats the hair follicles gradually and gently. Most body parts take 4 to 5 sessions to treat. The scalp can usually be treated in 3 sessions. One other advantage to this continuous motion laser system is that it can be used on skin of any color. As long as the hair is dark, the laser will work even on dark skin without risk of burning or hyperpigmentation.
Laser hair removal is a permanent treatment, so you have to realize that your hair will not grow back. You should not do this if you are thinking about hair replacement procedures at some point in the future. However, if you have made up your mind that a clean shaven head is your style from now on, this treatment is for you!
