Non-Ablative Body Contouring Laser Treatment

Cosmetic lasers have dramatically increased the precision and outcomes of cosmetic treatments.  There are many different types of cosmetic lasers, including the ablative laser, and the non ablative laser. The ablative laser is more powerful and invasive, while the non-ablative laser is minimally invasive, but still manages to  produce effective results.

Non-ablative lasers

Non-ablative lasers generally emit a lower level of energy than the ablative lasers. The ablative options blast away the entire surface of the skin, while non-ablative lasers treat specific zones. This ensures that healing can take place at a much faster rate, as there are healthy segments of skin tissue that can start the healing process quickly.

Non-ablative lasers can be used to carry out a range of cosmetic functions including skin rejuvenation and body contouring. There are fewer side effects associated with the use of the non ablative laser, due to the low energy output.

Alma vShape- Non-ablative body contouring                          

The vShape body contouring device by Alma Lasers is an effective non-ablative laser. vShape utilizes pixel radio frequency technology, to perform body tightening and fat reduction for the face and body. It can be used to resurface the skin to reduce wrinkles and blemishes, treat photo damaged skin, shrink pores, soften acne scars, and more.

The pixel RF technology treats only a small portion of the skin, about 20%, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. The zones of untreated skin are able to start the repair process for the area that has been treated, and this speeds up the entire recovery, so that there is little downtime after treatment.

The vShape roller tip makes small microscopic injury channels in the skin. As the roller moves up and down the surface of the skin, it stimulates the skin cells. This has the two-fold effect of remodeling the collagen, (which helps to tighten the skin over time), and encouraging new cell growth.

The vShape is safe for use on all skin types, and is FDA cleared for the treatment of wrinkles and rhytids. It is also cleared for the treatment of cellulite.  It generally takes about 3-4 treatments to achieve optimal results. After skin rejuvenation treatment some redness and flaking will occur. This can last anywhere from 3 to 7 days.

In terms of results, patients can expect their skin to feel tighter, and the texture, will be noticeably smoother. The Alma vShape is a non-ablative laser that can be used to effectively tone and tighten the skin.

Bust cellulite with the Cellulite reduction laser

If you have cellulite, you don’t have to be stuck with it forever; you can reduce it using cellulite reduction laser technology. Newer lasers use advanced technology that make it possible to reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite. For many years, women suffered silently, and struggled to cover up unattractive cellulite. However, revolutionary laser technology has given rise to solutions like the Accent XL treatment from Alma Lasers.

Most women have cellulite, and it doesn’t matter if they are large or petite. Cellulite is fat that swells and causes the connective tissue to harden, resulting in that ‘cottage cheese’ effect.   Unfortunately it is often unresponsive to diet and exercise. Consequently, women often go to great lengths to hide these lumps and bumps.

The Accent XL

However, in the fight against cellulite, the Accent XL is one of the most effective cellulite reduction laser treatments on the market. The non-invasive device uses radiofrequency technology to deliver heat deep into the layers of the skin. This action helps to loosen the fat trapped beneath the skin, and also helps to remove toxins that may also be lodged in the skin cells.

In addition, the heat therapy from the Accent laser stimulates the production of new collagen. Collagen strengthens the skin and connective tissues, creating an overall effect that reduces the appearance of cellulite. The heat also improves the surface texture of the skin making it much smoother. The treatment is very safe, and there are no significant side effects.  It generally requires about 6 sessions to get the desired outcome, and the results last a long time.

After treatment with the Accent cellulite reduction laser, most patients report significant improvement in the appearance of cellulite. The Accent XL remodels the skin and changes its shape. So it is possible to bust cellulite and get some relief from those lumps and bumps.

Feel no Pain with modern Hair Removal Lasers

If you have ever longed for the time when you never again have to shave or pluck unwanted hair, then you will certainly appreciate hair removal lasers. Whether you have undesirable hair on the face, chest, or back, these devices can give you the long lasting results you desire. Traditional hair removal methods like tweezing, shaving, and plucking are not only painful, they are also temporary, but hair removal lasers solve that problem by giving you results that last.

Because unwanted hair is a problem for both men and women, laser hair removal is now one of the most popular aesthetic treatments. These lasers can be used to remove large or small areas of unwanted hair. Older lasers work best with light skin and dark hair, but newer models like the Soprano XLi by Alma Lasers, is effective on all skin types.

Soprano XLi uses breakthrough hair removal technology to ensure that hair removal is not only pain free, but produces long lasting results. With the Soprano XLi you can expect less pain because of the SHR In-Motion technology.

The SHR or super hair removal innovation of the Soprano XLi makes it faster and more effective. SHR is more comfortable for the patient, because it penetrates deep into the hair follicle, and treats the hair at the root. Instead of releasing a significant amount of energy to the root of the hair follicle all at once, SHR innovation gradually heats the skin, thereby preventing damage to surrounding tissue.

Before starting the procedure the hair will be shaved, the skin cleaned, and anesthetic cream applied. The laser is then used to treat the hair follicle. This may be somewhat uncomfortable, but not painful.  With hair removal lasers, you will have to do several treatments before experiencing permanent hair reduction. Lasers like the Soprano XLi are easy to use, but the procedure must be done by a medical professional.
