Information about laser treatments at Brown Laser Clinic dated January 1, 2021


This sheet contains information about laser treatments and contraindications. Before you start treatment at Brown Laser Clinic, an intake interview will be conducted with you. This will discuss the matters below with you. The information below relates to all treatments that Brown Laser Clinic performs, unless expressly stated otherwise in the text of the relevant paragraph.


1. General

1.1 Laser treatment

Brown Laser Clinic performs laser treatments for permanent hair removal. The laser used for hair removal is the Soprano Laser.

1.2 Contraindications

If one or more of the contraindications below applies to you, you should make this known by e-mail at en/or to indicate in the questionnaire that was provided to you during the intake interview. Unless expressly stated otherwise, Brown Laser Clinic assumes that you do not suffer from and/or use: Disease(s) of the (adrenal) kidneys, allergies related to photosensitivity or histamine reactions, blood or clotting disorders such as thrombosis, endocrinological diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases such as high blood pressure, skin and/or venereal diseases such as herpes, psoriasis, eczema, keloid, cancer or skin tumors, immune diseases such as impaired immune system, infectious diseases or inflammation, varicose veins or other vascular problems, hormonal imbalance such as decreased estrogen levels or increased androgen, nervous system diseases such as epilepsy, medications such as antibiotics or overuse of painkillers, infectious diseases and/or inflammation. You do not have a pacemaker, implants, prostheses or other foreign objects.

1.3 Preparation

You can also send us so-called 'before photos', ie photos of the areas to be treated before the treatment takes place. Only in this way can it be determined whether the treatments have achieved the intended result or whether Brown Laser Clinic has performed the work with good and careful craftsmanship. You are not obliged to send before photos. You should email the 'before photos' to with your name and subject: before-photos. Brown Laser Clinic will treat these photos confidentially and will only use them to establish that they have carried out their work with good and careful craftsmanship. At your request, the photos will be removed on the condition that you acknowledge that Brown Laser Clinic has properly fulfilled its obligations, or at least that you bear the burden of proof to the contrary.

1.4 Every person is unique

In the case of Brown Laser Clinic, the lasers are an aid to help you from a cosmetic and sometimes medical point of view to reduce your complaints or undesirable effects. However, every person is unique and has his/her own unique body characteristics. Every body reacts differently to the laser treatment(s). The result is therefore unpredictable. Brown Laser Clinic cannot guarantee results, skin and/or hair reactions on the area to be treated or elsewhere on the body. Laser treatments can cause skin reactions in some cases. There is always a risk that slight burning of the epidermis and/or blistering may occur as a result of the laser treatment(s). Laser treatments can also stimulate hair follicles lying under the skin, on and around the treated body part, by radiating energy / heat, so that new hair growth can occur. This is new hair that has been fueled and can affect the result on hair growth. This is inherent to laser treatments. However, the skin reactions are often temporary and will disappear over time.

1.5 Result hair growth

In most cases, your hair growth will eventually be reduced by about 85%. However, that result cannot be guaranteed. For example, it is possible that you are a non-responder. A non-responder is someone who does not respond (well) to the laser, as a result of which the intended reduction of hair growth of 85% cannot be achieved. In a non-responder, a final hair growth reduction of less than 30% is expected. If the Brown Laser Clinic suspects that you are a non-responder, this will be discussed with you. You can then choose not to continue the treatment. However, you are not entitled to claim any compensation, restitution or damages.

2 Laser hair removal

2.1 Preparation for laser hair removal

The preparation that you must make yourself before taking a treatment is shaving the area to be treated (24 hours before your treatment). Unshaven skin should not be treated.

2.2 Soprano-ICE 

Treatments with the Soprano-ICE can be performed in two ways. There are two techniques possible. Namely the SHR and the HR technique. The SHR technique can be treated on all skin types and the HR technique only on skin types 1t/m4. 

2.3 Soprano-ICE Laser SHR technique

You can expect the following for treatments with the Soprano-ICE Laser. For treatments with the Soprano-ICE Laser, we draw a box on your body, after which contact gel is applied inside this box. This gel guides the laser and cools at the same time.  Due to the characteristic stroking movement method of the Soprano-ICE, the heat is gradually built up, this is the SHR technique, also called Super Hair Removal. This is a unique method that first introduced the Soprano to the market. Because the skin and the hair (bag) retain the heat, the right temperature is gradually reached, which destroys the protein around the hair follicle, causing the hair to die. Due to this characteristic and unique treatment technique, our treatments are extremely safe, which means that the risk of burns, pigmentation and infections is very small.

2.4 Soprano-ICE HR technique

For a treatment with the Soprano-ICE laser, HR technique, it is especially important that you have skin type 1 to 4 . With this treatment we also mark boxes and contact gel is applied. With this laser we give 1 direct pulse on 1 and the same spot. This treatment can be experienced as more painful and we often use the last 2 or 3 treatments of your process. This way of laser hair removal is slightly more effective for the last few thin and lighter hairs. 

2.5 Time frame

The time frame between treatments is 4 to 6 weeks for the face and 6 to 8 weeks for the body. The reason for this is that the treatment is most efficient in the growth phase of the hair. This stage is normally reached after the stated time frame. You must observe this time frame yourself, as well as take this into account when making a follow-up appointment. In general, one needs between 8 and 10 treatments to achieve the desired result. This is only an indication resulting from previous experience. In exceptional cases it may also happen that you need about 14 to 16 treatments to achieve the reduction of about 85% or that the desired result cannot be achieved. You cannot derive any rights from the aforementioned indication.

2.6 Medical

Laser hair removal is a method for treating (excess) hair. Unwanted hair growth can be caused by medical conditions (including hirsutism, hypertrichosis and other conditions). A treatment with the Soprano Laser will not

cure medical conditions that cause the unwanted hair growth. Brown Laser Clinic informs you of potential risks that can occur with all medical and cosmetic laser treatments. In this specific case, possible risks will be: Redness and edema around the hair follicle after treatment which can last up to 10 days, blistering or mild burning of the epidermis may occur after laser treatment, temporary hyper- or hypopigmentation may occur and will normally fade, regrow or change from dark hair to downy hair within 6 to 12 months of treatment.

2.7 Sun and/tanning bed

For treatments with the Soprano-ICE Laser SHR technique, we recommend avoiding the sun for 10 days before and after the treatment. For treatments with the Soprano-ICE HR technique, it is strongly advised not to sunbathe for 4 weeks before and after the treatment or in any case to avoid tanning the body parts to be treated. If this advice is not followed, it is possible that a circular depigmentation of the skin, hyper- or hypopigmentation occurs.
