The treatment is a form of light therapy that stimulates the skin’s production of collagen. ClearLift is a gentle way to resurface the skin on the face and neck. As we age, we lose volume in the face, and our skin loses its elasticity over time. ClearLift combines the laser energy of the non-ablative Yag with the Pixel Q Switch 1064 nm. These are new forms of light therapy.
Celebrating 10 years of award-winning success, Alma Lasers is proud to present Soprano ICE Platinum, a limited edition platform for 2016 featuring trio clustered diode technology. The Platinum edition combines 3 laser wavelengths into a single innovative handpiece, simultaneously targeting different tissue depths as well as anatomical structures within the hair follicle. By combining the absorption and penetration levels of three different wavelengths, along with the treatment coverage, comfort and low maintenance of the diode laser, Soprano ICE Platinum achieves the safest and most comprehensive hair removal treatment available today.
Soprano ICE Platinum offers the synergistic benefits of the 3 most effective wavelengths for hair removal, each targeting different structures within the hair follicle. The 3 main anatomical targets include the Bulge, Bulb and Papilla.
The Alexandrite wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption by the melanin chromophore, making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and color- especially light-colored and thin hair. With more superficial penetration, the 755nm wavelength targets the Bulge of the hair follicle and is especially effective for superficially embedded hair in areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip.
The classic wavelength in laser hair removal, the 810nm wavelength, offers deep penetration of the hair follicle with high average power, a high repetition rate and a large 2cm spot size for fast treatment. The 810nm has a moderate melanin absorption level making it safe for darker skin types. Its deep penetration capabilities target the Bulge and Bulb of the hair follicle while moderate tissue depth penetration makes it ideal for treating the arms, legs, cheeks and beard.
The YAG 1064 wavelength is characterized by lower melanin absorption, making it a focused solution for darker skin types. At the same time, the 1064nm offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle, allowing it to target the Bulb and Papilla, as well as treat deeply embedded hair in areas such as the scalp, armpits and pubic areas. With higher water absorption generating a higher temperature, the incorporation of the 1064nm wavelength increases the thermal profile of the overall laser treatment for most effective hair removal.
SHR is a proprietary hair removal method used in clinics around the world. It is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The laser incorporates SHR method, ensuring safe and comfortable hair removal. Rather than exposing hair follicles to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to the skin, SHR works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue.
A high repetition rate of short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up. The sweeping In-motionTM technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while ICETM tech cools the skin surface- preventing superficial burns and allowing for virtually painless yet highly effective hair removal.

The carbon laser peel, in particular, is often dubbed the ‘laser peel’ or ‘Red carpet peel’ because of celebrity interest. In Asia, talk of laser technology results has spread rapidly with the creation of two catchy nicknames, including ‘china doll peel’ and ‘porcelain peel’. No matter what it’s called, the results are the same – refreshed, exfoliated skin that is softened, smoothed, and firmed in just 20 minutes.
Unlike other laser treatments that rely exclusively on light energy to transform skin, the carbon laser peel is a 2-part process. First, a luxurious natural carbon cream is applied to the surface of the skin and allowed to dry. The non-toxic lotion looks something like a mud mask with a dark grey-brown colouring and rich texture. Natural carbon quickly absorbs oil, impurities, and dead skin cells from deep within pores and pulls toxins to the surface. The carbon mask also creates an even Plato for the laser energy. After the carbon mask is applied, it’s time for the Q-Switched laser. Q-Switched is the essential device required for this treatment. It is an ND: Yag laser which has wavelength of 1064nm**. This wavelength has a high absorption level in melanin and other dark pigment. Hence, the laser energy will be absorbed mostly in the carbon mask and create the glowing effect we’re looking for.
The operator will bind the carbon to the epidermis. Secondly, the operator will use a higher energy level to peel the carbon mask. Unlike other laser techniques, the carbon laser peel is applied from a distance above the skin. Treatment benefits include plumping fine lines and tightening sagging skin – win, win! At the surface, the laser energy destroys carbon particles in the mud mask and eliminates the absorbed oil, dead skin, and toxins along with it. This immediately refreshes and exfoliates the skin by deep cleaning
pores and shrinking size in the process. Without the weight of dull, dead skin cells, users can walk away with more radiant skin that is even and soft to the touch.
The carbon laser peel treatment is especially effective for anyone with oily skin who suffers from continual acne, blackheads, enlargedpores, or dull and uneven skin tone. Targeted laser energy gently heats the skin and kills acne-causing bacteria in the process. This is achieved without the need for any harsh chemicals or aggravating ingredients. This laser process also shrinks sebaceous glands to reduce oil production and help balance chronically oily skin.
Gentle exfoliation and toxin-pulling benefits are essential for everyone and the carbon laser peel is safe for all skin types. The 20-minute treatment is nicknamed a ‘lunchtime facial’. That is because you can walk out with a radiant glow and experience little to no side-effects or downtime. Immediately tighten, soften, andbrighten your skin. Natural carbon cleanses pores and cutting-edge laser technology blasts the excess oil, dead skin, and contaminatesaway.
The carbon laser peel is most often used to address acne and excess oil as a facial, but it can be performed anywhere. If you haveacne on your face, chest, back, or shoulders, try it out. This painless, 20-minute procedure delivers immediate benefits with lasting results. Ask for the ‘laser peel,’ ‘china doll peel,’ or ‘porcelain peel’ and you’ll discover what the carbon laser peel can do to transform your skin.
