At Dr Marta Beauty Clinic we use Alma® Harmony technology that offers us two treatment heads, depending on the type of injuries we are treating:
AAFT 570, for the treatment of pigmented lesions:
Pigmented lesions can be effectively removed through selective photothermolysis of the melanin chromophore present in the skin. This result can be achieved through the use of this AFT 570 head, which concentrates its energy emission in a 570nm.
Since it is in this beam that the most important energy absorption peaks are found, the light will be absorbed by the pigment leading to its elimination. This head works in a traditional way, positioning the head in the area we are treating, applying only one pulse at a time, using higher powers.
Dye VL, for the treatment of vascular lesions:
The Dye-VL head is a pulsed light head with special technology, which concentrates the energy emission in a very narrow beam of light, between 500 to 600nm, and is accompanied by an integrated cooling system. This concentration of photos in this wave interval, makes this mode extremely effective in cases where the chromophore is a hemoglobin, since it is at this moment that it shows the peaks of energy absorption.
Another distinguishing feature, compared to other technologies that use pulsed light, is that this head has two working modes:
- VL mode (static mode): works in a traditional way, positioning the head in the area we are dealing with, applying only one pulse at a time, using higher powers, being done only on skins with lower phototypes (lighter skins).
- SVL mode (dynamic mode): it works through a constant movement of the head in the area we are treating, accumulating several consecutive pulses using lower frequencies, being carried out in all types of skins since it is more selective.
After treatment, the skin begins its natural healing and regeneration process.
