LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal remains one of the world’s most popular aesthetic procedures. Anyone with excessive body hair or hair in the wrong place is most likely a good candidate for laser hair removal.

Always at the forefront of innovation, Alma pioneered SHR™, a proprietary technology now used in clinics around the world. Alma Laser Hair Removal utilizes a high repetition rate of short pulses delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, with virtually no pain.
Hair removal being the most popular light-based aesthetic procedure in the world, and intense pulsed light is by far the most popular method of performing photoepilation. Using an HR AFT handpiece, Harmony XL we can deliver fast, effective results for permanent hair reduction on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is virtually pain free due to pulsed light technology.

How it works
In AFT hair removal, a large rectangular pulse of 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 briefly spikes in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.
Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT™)
We use AFT for skin rejuvenation, vascular and pigmented lesions, hair removal and treatment of active acne.
AFT is the next generation of multi-application pulsed light technology. Its breakthrough design converts unused UV light into the optimal spectrum for each application.
This dramatic boost in efficiency also extends the life of the pulsed light handpiece (up to three times longer than that of other pulsed light systems), which significantly lowers the cost of ownership.
The unique shape of each AFT pulse limits peak power to only the therapeutic range, which precisely heats its intended target with remarkably little or no skin damage or discomfort. An advanced algorithm stabilizes each pulse to ensure predictable, reproducible treatments that are safe and effective.
AFT spectra precisely target unwanted blood vessels and melanin, while it gently preserves surrounding tissue to leave skin soft and smooth. AFT users report progressive improvement over several treatments and outstanding results. Patients often claim to look naturally younger and healthier, without the artificial look of other cosmetic treatments. This technology of pulsed light results in virtually pain free removal of unwanted hair and to effect stable long-term or permanent hair reduction.

Questions About Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® Injections
It is most effective for wrinkles that are visible when smiling, laughing, raising the eyebrows or for crow's feet around the eyes. These wrinkles are called "dynamic" and tend to be much less noticeable when your face is completely relaxed. It also works well for bands in the neck.
The best candidates for the procedure are adults over the age of 18. However, if you are between the ages of 12 to 18; please consult pediatrician and the aesthetic physician to see if you will be a good candidate. In many cases, wrinkles in people over 65 are "static" and do not change when relaxing the face. Other procedures would work better for these patients, including Lasers, Radiesse and other dermal fillers injections. Each person is different however, and should undergo a consultation to determine the most effective treatment plan. Consultation is FREE at Cosmedic laser clinic.
A very small amount of Botox® Cosmetic is injected into each of the target areas using a very small needle or using needleless mesotherapy. Because the needle is fine, only a small amount of the liquid is injected and the associated discomfort is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a light pinch. No sedation or local anesthetic is necessary and you can resume normal activities immediately afterwards.
Botox injections are very small and done with a tiny needle that usually does not cause discomfort. The pressure sensation associated with the injection goes away very quickly and patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. We use expensive Japanese made INVISIBLE needles for lest discomfort.
Generally, most people start to recognize the benefits in 3-5 days following treatment. You will not necessarily feel anything different but you will notice a decrease in the wrinkles at the treated areas. If you do not see the desired results be patient as some people may take up to two weeks to see the improvement.
After 3 to 4 months of treatment most people start to see their wrinkles return. In some individuals the benefits may last up to six months and in a few the wrinkles may start to return as soon as two months. Mounting evidence suggests that the effectiveness of the Botox last longer with successive new treatments. We hope you enjoyed the benefits of your Botox treatment and it is our pleasure to help you reach your goals. As always if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to call us anytime.
Botox treatment takes three to eight days to take full effect which sometimes can be hastened by contracting the facial muscles. The results usually last from 3 to 5 months. Often, repeated treatments can lead to longer results. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are confined to the treatment sites.
As the Botox treatment wears off the wrinkles will begin to reappear but frequently they are not as deep or noticeable. It requires three to four Botox injections to maintain the smooth, youthful appearance year round. With repeat treatments, the effects tend to last longer thus requiring fewer injections.
No. Most people return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. It is recommended however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting and massaging the injected area for one day. Give us 15 minutes and look 5 years younger.
BOTOX® has been found to give relief to Migraine sufferers. The treatment of severe headaches may really belongs to neurologists, not cosmetic surgeons. But BOTOX® for migraine is helpful and we can help with medicines and Botox.
Bruising is rare but it is a possibility. Those who are on aspirin, aspirin containing products, high doses of Vitamin E, natural alternatives such as Ginger, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng and Garlic may increase the likelihood of a bruise occurring. If you do develop a bruise it will resolve like any other bruise you have experienced in the past over the next week. Cover up makeup may be helpful to you. But do not be overly concerned the wrinkle reducing benefits of your Botox will far out last your bruise. We use special Japanese invisible needles to minimize any bruising.
This is not very common occurrence. As a matter of fact Botox® and Dysport® are now used to treat those with headaches. However, if you do experience a headache your usual method to treat a headache should suffice. We recommend you stay away from aspirin or aspirin containing products. Motrin, Tylenol, cool compresses and dimmed lights are all traditional methods of relieving headaches pain.
We recommend you to wait 6-12 hours after your treatment before applying your make-up. If you must apply it before 6-12 weeks gently clean the area and gingerly apply the make-up. A gentle make-up that is designed for those with sensitive skin is better suited for the recently treated area.
Botox migrating to an undesirable location is highly unlikely although its occurrence has been reported. If Botox® were to get into the eyelid you could experience a difference in position between the two eyelids. This occurrence is highly unlikely but if you feel as though your eyelids are asymmetric let us know. We can prescribe eye drops, which will improve the discrepancy between your eyelids. Also you need not to worry, the asymmetry usually rapidly resolves over 2-6 week period of time and it is not permanent.
