Cosmetic Laser Treatment
Body Contouring and Rejuvenation
BodyFX, offered exclusively at the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center in Dallas, is the ultimate treatment for cellulite, body contouring and uneven fat irregularities incorporating bipolar RF, negative pressure and high-amplitude nanosecond pulses. These energies work cohesively to smooth out dimpled connective tissues while emitting radio-frequency waves to tighten the skin in its deeper layers. Heat from the radio-frequency waves reduces the volume of fat cells, thus shrinking the overall amount of fat under the skin. The BodyFX high-amplitude nanosecond pulse trains create an electroporation effect causing apoptosis or permanent cellular death. The result is a noticeable loss in fat and a restored youthful contour. BodyFX is a new generation, first-of-its-kind technology that incorporates the skin-tightening element without the high consumables associated with the existing fat destruction technologies. Patients will find a rejuvenated shape in the treated area after the safe and comfortable BodyFX treatment.
- Body FX treatments target problematic fatty tissues for ideal body contouring.
- Radio frequency provides precise and optimal heating of the skin for reduction, contraction and body shaping.
- Negative pressure massage applies gentle vacuum pressure allowing for maximal depth treatment.
- Clinical studies with histologies show volume reduction and contraction.
Fractora: Fractional Skin Treatment
Fractora treatment, featured on E! Network with Giuliana and Bill, is provided exclusively at the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center in Dallas and is the secret to tighter and younger looking skin.
Giuliana Rancic does her research on aesthetic procedures to help her combat the beginning signs of aging. Joan Rivers advises her to get a facelift, but Giuliana opts for something less invasive. Dr. Raj Kanodia treats Giuliana with Fractora Skin Resurfacing, which gives her the natural, amazing results she wanted.
While CO2 has traditionally been the gold standard for resurfacing, Fractora bipolar radio frequency has emerged with comparable (or better) results than fractional CO2. Patients have better recovery and dramatically less erythema, all while achieving significant skin contraction and uniform skin resurfacing. Fractora’s “Designer Dermis” approach allows variable tip configurations to reach different depths, addressing various concerns from superficial resurfacing, to deep wrinkles, to cystic acne.
Fractora delivers targeted bipolar RF energy to various selectable depths in the skin. Fractora meets and exceeds the results of fractional CO2 without the associated downtime, prolonged redness and pigmentation drawbacks. Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with customizable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (rhytids and tightening). Clinicians can select between variable depths, densities and energy levels for results that were previously unattainable without excisional surgery.
By using a combination of bipolar radio-frequency energy and micropins, Fractora delivers results comparable to surgical procedures in a nonablative or minimally ablative manner and little to no downtime. Fractora is a revolutionary fractional technology that offers an exceptional skin treatment that is comparable with the best fractional CO2 lasers, without their associated downtime. In addition, Fractora is safe for resurfacing on the neck, chest and all other areas of the face, including ethnic skin, whereas CO2 is not. Additionally, with the option to choose between pin densities and depths, Fractora’s “Designer Dermis” approach allows for customizable treatments from superficial skin issues (pigmented lesions, fine lines, texture) all the way down to deeper tissues (wrinkles, skin tightening, cystic acne, scars). Fractora visibly enhances the skin’s appearance.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
