Alma Harmony Intense Pulsed Light

The fully trained laser technicians at Total Skin Care and Laser Center use the Alma Harmony AFT Pulsed Light to successfully treat:

  • sun damage
  • redness
  • pigmentation
  • facial capillaries
  • skin rejuvenation

The treatment is non-invasive and the unique technology is based on stimulating skin rejuvenation without damaging the skin. On the first consultation at the clinic your skin type is assessed and detailed information is discussed. A test patch will be performed on the area to ensure the safest and best treatment settings, the recommended number of treatments to get optimum results will also be advised. Sun protection is imperative.

What is IPL Treatment?

The Harmony works by emitting a short burst of light, or “Intense Pulsed Light” that is selectively absorbed by the target in the skin or hair. With skin rejuvenation the target is either pigment, redness or bacteria on the skin. Collagen production is stimulated, restoring the skin to a more youthful appearance. With permanent hair reduction the target is the pigment in the hair.

FAST AND VERSATILE SKIN REJUVENATION

Stimulate healthy collagen production and refine skin tone

Anyone who wants to rejuvenate their skin by improving the signs of sun and environmental damage and ageing, such as brown spots, capillary damage, redness, uneven or rough skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, would find the Harmony IPL technology effective.

The targeted areas precisely absorb pulsed light energy without damaging healthy skin.

Pigmented lesions – the light energy heats the melanin in the lesion and causes it to fragment. The melanin fragments are then absorbed by the body or form a light “scab” and then fall off.

Vascular irregularities (e.g. fine veins, broken capillaries or generalised redness)- the pulsed light energy will selectively heat and close off small blood vessels, reducing the red lesion while sparing nearby tissue from injury.

Skin rejuvenation can also be performed on other parts of the body including the neck, chest, back and hands.

Treatments are best scheduled at 4 weekly intervals.

ACNE TREATMENT

Clear inflammatory acne lesions comfortably without undesirable side effects

The “Intense Blue Light Therapy” is the most effective way of treating active acne on the skin.

This IPL modality targets the bacteria (porphyrins) on the skin which are produced as part of normal acne metabolism. The Intense Blue Light rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue. The treatment is painless with no adverse effects or downtime.

Treatments can be performed twice a week for a month for best results.
