Paradoxical hair growth post laser hair removal.
A good machine is always essential and Soprano Ice is one of the best. Nevertheless, the operator has to inform the patient of what can be expected. Fine hair on the face is difficult to treat. First any medical cause for hair growth needs to be assessed and excluded. The Soprano ICE uses both alexandrite and diode lasers to remove hairs. Paradoxical hair growth (hair where you didn't have before) is commonly seen with inexperienced technicians and sometimes can not be avoided. There are techniques to reduce this risk. Many clinics use the Alexandrite laser as it is quicker to perform, however, for your skin type and your issues a diode should be used. It is still important to say that laser hair removal on the face can never be guaranteed. Therefore, I would encourage you seek out a reputable laser clinic who offers top up sessions and understands what I have mentioned.
