Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT™)
Treat superficial vascular and pigmented irregularities to improve a patient's skin color. Use a series of approximately five treatments using one of the AFT handpieces on HarmonyXL:
AFT is the next generation of intense pulsed light. It takes formerly unused short-wavelength light and converts it into part of the usable spectrum through a special filtering system. It increases emission and penetration, for safer and more effective treatments.
AFT also delivers Equally Distributed Fluence, which means that every pulse has uniform energy density across the entire output face. This fluence ensures repeatable results and remarkable safety. AFT yields a more efficient system for ideal clinical improvements, less discomfort and minimal skin damage.
Hair removal is the most popular light-based aesthetic procedure in the world. Using a novel 650 - 950 nm AFT handpiece, the Harmony Family can deliver fast, effective results for permanent hair reduction on all skin types, including tanned skin. This SHR handpiece now has contact cooling and uses IN-Motion™ technology for virtually pain-free procedures with no downtime - Alma Lasers' remarkable Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ procedure.
To perform light-based hair removal, a large rectangular window emitting broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb.
The dark-colored melanin absorbs the light and rises quickly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.
IN-Motion Technology represents a breakthrough in patient comfort, speed of procedures and repeatable clinical results. Why? Because the high peak energies used in traditional photoepilation technology must have high cooling before, during and after each pulse and therefore the handpiece must be stationary during the energy delivery.
Alma Lasers' unique IN-Motion technology combines concurrent cooling with a gradual thermal rise to the target's critical temperature, without the risk of injury and with much less pain for the patient.
Clear inflammatory acne lesions without drugs or undesirable side effects, with the AFT Acne Handpiece. Intense blue wavelengths in the range of 420-950 nm target the porphyrins produced as part of the normal metabolism of p. acnes bacteria. The interaction of the intense blue light and the porphyrins creates singlet oxygen that rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Pixel Perfect is an ideal treatment for those patients interested in more aggressive results than non-ablative skin resurfacing treatments can offer. By combining its proprietary and proven Pixel fractional technology with traditional CO2 laser resurfacing, the Pixel CO2creates a supremely effective treatment for aged, photo-damaged and acne-scarred skin with minimal erythema or patient downtime.
With Pixel Perfect skin resurfacing, you'll achieve dramatic results similar to traditional CO2 while minimizing long-term discomfort and the risk of complications. Pixel Perfect skin resurfacing significantly improves the tone and texture of skin in one treatment with minimal downtime and faster healing - patients usually return to normal activities within three days. Pixel Perfect skin resurfacing has a lower risk of complications compared to traditional CO2 laser resurfacing with a short learning curve.
The first device of its kind, Accent®XL, with the iPixel RF handpiece, is a unique multi-application, Radio Frequency (RF) based platform for the non-invasive treatment of cellulite, skin tightening and body shaping that is virtually painless.
The Soprano®XLi with SHR technology, is a revolutionary diode laser system for permanent hair reduction and skin tightening. It is the world's first laser hair removal system that is virtually painless - and it is available exclusively from Alma Lasers.
