The Q-Switched Laser

The high powered Q-switched laser is the most effective method for removing natural or artificial pigmentation while minimizing the risk of damage to surrounding tissue. ALMA-Q’s capabilities further extend the potency of the Q-switched laser, opening the door to additional treatment possibilities, including challenging skin imperfections associated with aging. ALMA-Q delivers photo acoustic shock waves to the target area through high laser intensities in ultra-short nanosecond pulses. This method creates controlled dermal wounds via a mechanical Q-Switched effect – a unique mechanism of action that achieves optimal results for various indications without causing thermal damage or coagulation in the surrounding tissue.

Pigmented Lesions

Lifecycle and hormonal changes can affect the distribution of color (melanin) in our skin, leading to the appearance of sun spots, age spots, or melasma- a dark, patchy facial discoloration condition. Alma’s light-based and laser treatments remove the appearance of spots and pigmentation by targeting the melanin in the darkened area, clearing all layers of the pigmentation and revealing even-toned, unblemished skin. The treatments are specially designed for patient comfort and are safe and effective for all skin types, including dark skin.

Tattoo removal

Unwanted dark and multi-colored tattoos can be safely and effectively eliminated with Alma’s range of tattoo removal treatments. Using a combination of laser wavelengths that target different ink colors, high-intensity light beams break up the ink particles in the tattoo, revealing clear, ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.

Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors. The high power Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors (black, blue and green), while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors (red, orange and yellow). The treatment mechanically breaks down ink particles without causing thermal damage, causing the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.

Skin Remodeling

Radiance, clarity and smooth texture are the hallmarks of youthful skin. But over time, the effects of aging and sun exposure can take their toll, leaving skin imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, uneven skin tone and skin laxity.

Alma’s range of skin remodeling treatments rejuvenates mature skin, enhancing your patients’ natural beauty and revealing smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin. The treatments are ‘lunchtime procedures’ that are virtually painless with no downtime, no need for pre-treatment anesthetic and are safe for all skin types.

Vascular Lesions

Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart. Alma’s vascular treatments offer effective, non-invasive solutions that close these veins and reduce or eliminate their appearance. A variety of technologies are used to target the affected blood vessels beneath the skin, leaving you with smooth, clear skin and renewed confidence. The treatments are safe and effective and provide reliable, long term results.

Carbon peel

Bring the skin treatment of celebrities to your clients with ALMA-Q. Carbon Peel is a non-invasive, completely painless laser-based skin treatment that quickly and effectively treats a variety of skin imperfections, with no side effects or patient downtime and with immediate results. Using formulated unique carbon liquid applied to the face, in conjunction with the powerful and versatile Q-Switched laser, the treatment exfoliates the skin, unclogs and tightens pores, reduces oil production and smooths rough and uneven skin texture. With a unique 2-stage approach, ALMA-Q maximizes the effectiveness of the carbon peel with two distinct modes of laser delivery, while a special applicator allows physicians to treat the area from a distance, for better visibility, quick and a clean procedure.. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, and is particularly beneficial for patients with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, rough/uneven skin texture and acne.

The Q-Switched Laser

The high powered Q-switched laser is the most effective method for removing natural or artificial pigmentation, while minimizing the risk of damage to surrounding tissue. ALMA-Q’s fractional capabilities further extend the potency of the Q-switched laser, opening the door to additional treatment possibilities, including effectively treating challenging skin imperfections associated with aging. ALMA-Q delivers photo acoustic shockwaves to the target area through high laser intensities in ultra-short nanosecond pulses. This method creates controlled dermal wounds via a mechanical Q-Switched effect- a unique mechanism of action that achieves optimal results for various indications without causing thermal damage or coagulation in the surrounding tissue.

Single and Double Pulse Technologies

ALMA-Q offers energy delivery in both Single Pulse and Double Pulse modes. Double Pulse technology disperses the laser energy into two consecutive pulses, mitigating peak power while delivering maximum energy of up to 2J per pulse. By creating a flat-top beam, maximum energy may be delivered evenly over the skin without risking epidermal injury. Both Single pulse and Double pulse are available in both the QSW 1064nm and QSW 532nm wavelengths.

Four Distinct Wavelengths

ALMA-Q offers four distinct wavelengths targeting the full spectrum of ink colors found in multi colored tattoos. ALMA-Q offers four distinct Q-switched Nd:YAG laser wavelengths, each targeting a specific ink color for full-spectrum multi-color tattoo removal. The high power QSW 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors, while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors, including red, orange and yellow. The 585nm wavelength specifically targets sky blue and the 650nm wavelength targets green and teal.

Pixel Q-Switched Laser with Depth Control

ALMA-Q’s Pixel handpiece offers the first fractional Q-switched laser for skin rejuvenation that features unique depth control capabilities. Variable depth control allows practitioners to combine both deep and superficial treatment approaches depending on the area being treated, the skin type or the indication. Variable depths can also be used for combination work on the same area to achieve optimal results.

Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser (QLP)

The Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd:YAG laser generates sub-millisecond pulse widths at a high repetition rate of 5Hz to provide both skin rejuvenation and microvascular treatments. The QLP laser achieves safe and effective sub-dermal heating, stimulating the growth of new collagen and tightening skin laxity. At the same time, its ultra-short pulse duration makes it ideal for treating microscopic blood vessels with diameters of less than 50 microns.

Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser (LP)

Maximizing the potential of the 1064nm wavelength, ALMA-Q also offers the Long-Pulsed Nd:YAG laser for the treatment of vascular lesions, malformations and deep veins. The extended duration of the long-pulsed 1064nm laser affords deep penetration and powerful heating, facilitating treatment of deeper lesions that cannot be targeted by shorter wavelengths.
