Cosmetic Laser Treatments
Pixel Skin Resurfacing Treatments
For many years, because of the high risk/benefit ratio of laser skin resurfacing, less invasive approaches for treating photoaging have been desirable. Now, nonablative fractionated skin resurfacing has become very popular, as it involves little or no downtime and delivers great results for mild to moderate skin wrinkling and dyschromia. With the High Power Pixel® 2940 hand piece on the Harmony®XL, you can offer fractionated skin-resurfacing treatments to your patients as part of Alma’s consumer-friendly Laser360 procedures. The process is so gentle that the neck, chest, hands and face can all be treated with minimal risk.
IPL Photofacial Treatments
As the baby boomer generation continues to age, the popularity of aesthetic procedures that aim to turn back the clock continues to skyrocket. Brown spots, broken capillaries and other fallout from photoaging are easy targets for laser systems that use broadband light to repair these defects. Additionally, facial wrinkles can now be treated nonablatively, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light, imperfections, such as erythema of rosacea, superficial telangiectasia, dyschromia, age spots and other discolored signs of photoaging, can be gently heated and eliminated, replaced by newer, younger-looking skin. Patients prefer AFT treatments from Alma Lasers’ Harmony®XL because each treatment is gentle with no downtime. In fact, laser skin treatments for wrinkles and other signs of aging can be done during a lunch hour and no one will notice any sign of treatment, just a gradual improvement in the skin’s appearance.
Laser 360 Skin Treatments
Laser 360 combines four leading-edge technologies over 60 days to reveal brighter, younger and healthier-looking skin. In other words, you no longer have to accept an aging, lackluster appearance. You can resist the hands of time, smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, reverse skin discoloration and revitalize your appearance. Best of all, you can do it all in less time than ever possible before.
Vein Rejuvenation, & Laser Hair Removal
Soprano Diode Laser Hair Removal
Great for all skin types, laser hair removal is the number-one noninvasive aesthetics treatment available today, with an estimated growth rate of 18 percent. With nearly 3.1 million laser hair-removal treatments performed in 2006 alone, hair removal is a fantastic way to inject profit into your practice. While there are many methods to eliminate unwanted hair, very few can eliminate hair regrowth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Photoepilation is quickly becoming the most popular. Lasers and light sources use the principle of selective photothermolysis to eliminate hair and its potential regrowth without damaging the surrounding skin. During a laser hair-removal treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for regrowth. The attributes of the light (wavelength, pulse duration and power) are chosen to ensure damage to these cells and not to the rest of the skin.
Alma Lasers provides you two great options for laser hair removal, both providing Alma’s virtually painless hair-removal technology. If your practice is looking to add laser hair removal along with several other aesthetic treatments, then the Harmony®XL’s SHR handpiece is an ideal fit for your needs.
Diolaze Laser Hair Removal
Diolaze is the new champion in the laser hair removal arena. Diolaze is the first high-speed diode hair removal system to deliver uncompromised power and pulsing to tissue (30J/30msec up to 40J) with high-speed (4 cm2/sec) in the same session. Diode scanning technology and built-in safeguards provide a unique combination of high-tech sophistication with speed, efficacy and safety.
Laser Vein Rejuvenation Treatments
The noninvasive laser treatment of unsightly leg veins is one of the most requested – yet most challenging – of aesthetic procedures. Because of the various diameters, depths and pressures found with these vessels, their treatment often requires a wide range of wavelengths, pulse widths and fluences. Using a combination of therapies, such as those included on the Harmony®XL system, physicians are able to treat both superficial and deep telangiectasias as well as telangiectatic matting and hemosiderin staining. Using the principle of selective photothermolysis, these vessels can be selectively heated and collapsed without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue.
