Hey everyone. So I’ve used most types of lasers, and if you see in one of my previous posts I bought a deal for unlimited laser for a year with LightSheer. The clinic just bought a Soprano XL now of course and said I can use either so figured I’d give it a shot. I was concerned because before she bought it she told me it’s great because it can do legs in 10 minutes which I knew right away is impossible.
I’ve done Soprano XL once maybe a year ago on my legs and underarms. When I had the treatment, they spent a lot of time on my underarms and after awhile it started to feel pretty hot. On my legs I never really felt the heat. My underarms completely shed from the treatment but legs hardly did from what I can remember so I never wanted to use Soprano.
Anyway, my treatment was about 3 days ago now. I did my chest, legs and forearms. One thing first was she told me she’d start on my chest and for me to tell her once it started to feel almost too hot to take it, that’s how she knows that it’s been treated long enough. She said otherwise she knows when to remove it based on how my skin reacts.
So she started on my left pec and did it for maybe 30 seconds, where it definitely got warm. I wanted to go as long as possible so didn’t say anything and let her keep going. She finished that one then did the other, but I noticed both were actually really hot to the point that I was thinking this isn’t really “pain free” like they claim (which I think is good!). She then did my forearms and same thing, lots of heat, and then did my legs. One thing I noticed was each area would get really hot after only 20 seconds or so. When I did Soprano before, only the underarms got hot and it was after a good 2 minutes or so. The areas this time also were red unlike before so hoping that’s good.
Only been 3 days but will keep everyone posted on how the shedding goes and the treatment but so far it feels like it was a better session than the last time so we’ll see!
