ALMA HYBRID SCAR TREATMENT
Alma Hybrid treatments are one of the most groundbreaking scar removal solutions. They are unique because they treat the skin with a combination of three energies. These energies bring amazing results and make the downtime much shorter. Alma Hybrid treatment for scars goes beyond traditional fractional lasers because every treatment is fully customized for every patient. This powerful treatment fully resurfaces the skin with the proper combination of ablative CO2 laser and non-ablative 1570nm laser.
Since it is FDA-approved, Alma Hybrid OScar treatment is safe for all skin tones and types. It can treat surgical, acne or trauma scars. Its laser goes deep into the dermis with previously set parameters. With a proper combination of CO2 and 1570nm wavelengths, this treatment specifically targets the patient’s individual skin concerns. On top of that, the treatment is completed with IMPACTTM – an applicator that fuses the skin with skin essential products and boosts the results of the treatment.
The patient receives a numbing cream before the treatment which makes OScar treatment nothing but comfortable. The patient may experience only a mild heating sensation.
After the treatment, the patient may experience mild side effects like dryness, redness and peeling but once these sensitivities pass the patient’s new skin is completely transformed and rejuvenated.
Generally, only 5 sessions are necessary to achieve dramatic results – reduced scars and younger-looking skin.
SECRET FRACTIONAL RF MICRO-NEEDLING SCAR TREATMENT
Secret fractional RF micro-needling treatment is a brilliant method of addressing acne and trauma scars and tightening the skin. The controlled RF energy is applied to the skin at different depths through very fine micro-needles. This advanced treatment stimulates the production of collagen and deep coagulation by safe and controlled heating. It reduces the visibility of scars and deeply remodels the skin.
Since the treatment is FDA-approved, it is safe for all skin tones.
During the treatment, micro-needles are attached to the treatment’s applicator and they make perfect contact with the skin. The needles gently puncture the skin and emit RF energy. The treatment is fully customized for every patient’s specific scar concerns. The customization includes presetting the depth of micro-needles. The RF energy triggers the skin’s ability to heal the damaged tissue. It also stimulates collagen production. As a result, the skin gets firmer and more even.
The number of sessions varies from patient to patient and it is determined during the consultation with the skin therapist. Generally, 4 to 6 sessions are necessary for the best results.
After the treatment, the patient might experience some mild side effects like redness and roughness of the skin for a couple of days.
The results of the treatment might not be noticed immediately because collagen and elastin need a certain period of time to rebuild. But once they build up, the skin gets clear of scars and it is much tighter.
One of the biggest advantages of this treatment is that it targets only a fractional part of the skin, in this case, the scar, so the healing is done much faster.
iPIXEL LASER SCAR TREATMENT
iPIXEL Laser is a groundbreaking procedure that reduces the visibility of acne and other scars. It is also an effective technique for fractional skin resurfacing and improving skin texture and tone. It stimulates the skin healing processes, the growth of healthy skin tissue and collagen production. It is a safe procedure that delivers long-term results.
This procedure is unique because it safely combines non-ablative and ablative laser techniques. This way, the treatment is very comfortable but still very effective.
During this procedure, the beam of pixel laser is split up into multiple beams that form a 7×7 pattern. This pattern is used when addressing acne scars because the laser energy is stronger and penetrates deep into the skin. The laser energy makes microscopic heat zones or pixels in the skin. The surrounding healthy skin tissue is left undamaged and this healthy skin triggers fast wound healing and the growth of healthy skin cells. After a while, the skin gets smoother and rejuvenated.
The penetration of the laser beam is minimal which makes this procedure only moderately uncomfortable. Since the laser targets only a fraction of the skin it is safe for treating acne scars even on sensitive areas like decolletage, arms or hands.
As this treatment is done with controlled precision, it doesn’t cause many side effects as ablative resurfacing lasers do. The patient might feel mild stinging, itching and dryness and experience swelling and redness of the skin. After a few days, the skin starts to crust and peels off. After a week or two, the skin should be fully healed.
The number of sessions is determined according to the patient’s scarring concerns. Generally, 3 to 5 sessions are enough for great results.
Once the new collagen is built-up, the skin looks improved and the scars are less visible. The results of iPixel laser treatment get even better with time.
RF PIXEL SCAR TREATMENT
This highly effective and groundbreaking treatment visibly improves the quality of the skin’s top and underlying layers. It reduces acne, trauma, surgical and other types of scars. It is safe for all skin types since it is FDA-approved. This powerful treatment boosts the skin’s healing processes and brings wonderful results. The required downtime is only minimal.
The most important feature of this procedure is MICROPLASMA, based on UniPolar RF technology. It is created from air particles that are found between the skin and RF energy. The tip of the treatment applicator creates micro-wounds in the thermal heat zones. Only a small area of the skin gets ablated while the rest is unharmed. The healthy, untreated tissue triggers fast healing of the damaged tissue. As a result, the skin is smoother and clear of scars.
Since the energy is split into small parts this treatment is safe for all skin tones. It targets the top and deeper layers of the skin and thus stimulates the production of healthy collagen.
After the treatment, the skin is only mildly red, swollen and tight for a couple of hours. The patient might experience a hot sunburn sensation. After a few days, the treated skin starts to peel off and new healthy skin emerges.
The required downtime is short – it generally lasts just for 5 days. After that, the patients can continue with their social activities.
The number of sessions depends on the patient and his/her scar concerns. For optimal results, 3 to 4 sessions are usually recommended.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA – PRP SCAR TREATMENT
PRP is an innovative injectable treatment that dramatically improves the quality of the skin, especially when addressing surgical, acne and other scars.
This treatment is natural and it doesn’t cause infections or allergic reactions. This is because it involves injecting the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma from the blood. PRP is a skin transformation procedure that combines micro-needling and PRP infusion. It stimulates collagen production, makes the scars significantly less visible and improves the skin’s overall tone and texture. The effectiveness of this treatment lies in its ability to stimulate the replacement of old and damaged skin cells with new and healthy ones.
Since this treatment is natural and only minimally invasive, it can be performed on all skin tones and types. It needs only minimal or no downtime at all.
After the treatment, the patient may get minor side effects like pain and irritation at the injection sites and swelling and redness but it resolves in a couple of days. Swelling is a normal side effect and it shows that the PRP therapy works.
The right number of sessions depends on the severity of acne or other scars. For optimal results, it is generally recommended to have 4 to 6 sessions.
The results of Platelet-rich plasma therapy are long-lasting. The effects of this treatment can be seen for more than 18 months.
CLEAR + BRILLIANT TREATMENT
This amazing fractional laser treatment effectively reduces the visibility of acne scars. It targets the upper layers of the skin where it creates microscopic treatment zones. The treatment triggers the production of collagen and elastin and also removes dead skin cells. It can resurface around 25% of the skin but it is gentle to the top layer and leaves it undamaged. It makes the skin smoother and rejuvenated and improves uneven texture and tone. It can clear the skin from hyperpigmentation and increase the skin’s permeability for topical products.
When the treatment starts, the laser emits a pulsating beam of light that penetrates the skin and creates microscopic damage. The dead skin cells are exfoliated and the healthy skin is revealed. The light emitted from the laser is not absorbed by pigment but by the water in the skin. Therefore this treatment is suitable to treat acne scars even on darker skin tones. The heat stimulates the production of collagen which gradually makes the scars less visible.
This procedure is moderately uncomfortable and causes only minimal side effects like tingling, prickling, redness and swelling. The skin may also be slightly rough. It needs only minimal downtime and after a couple of days, the patient can return to normal social activities.
After a week, the patient notices that his/her skin is bright and fresh.
THE DERMAPEN™ MICRO-NEEDLING SCAR TREATMENT
The Dermapen™ micro-needling procedure is a successful method of addressing trauma and acne scars. The tip of the Dermapen applicator consists of a disposable, sterile needles cartridge that gently penetrates the skin and causes 1300 micro punctures per second. It creates microchannels in the lower layers of the skin, while it leaves the surface of the skin undamaged. These microchannels stimulate the skin’s ability to heal and start producing healthy collagen.
As the new collagen builds up, the scars become less visible. The body repairs and re-grows the damaged skin cells because of micro-damaged that is caused by Dermapen.
The precise and controlled Dermapen applicator triggers the 3 CIT phases. The first phase starts when the body releases its growth factors and triggers powerful fibroblasts. The next phase starts with the production of I, III and IV type of collagen. The third phase starts with skin tissue remodeling.
As a result of these phases, the new healthy skin cells replace the damaged and old ones.
This treatment requires only minimal downtime because the patient’s skin quickly heals.
Next to making the scars less visible, this treatment also delivers essential products to the skin. They are quickly absorbed by the skin and boost the end results even further.
