Additionally, Alma is renowned for the popular brands; FemiLift, ClearLift, and vShape Ultra with JuVaShape Technology. Now, Alma Lasers is changing the way aesthetic professionals think about live events.

Dr. Gold on Soprano ICE

What is the most effective wavelength for laser hair removal?

Since its invention, experts have asked the question and argued about the answer. Even today, after years of innovation, the debate continues. But most providers agree that three wavelengths are the most accepted for effective laser hair removal:

  • 810 nm
  • 755 nm
  • 1064 nm

The 810 diode wavelength earned its gold standard status for a number of reasons; reliability, range of suitable patients, efficacy, and solid safety record. Yet the 755 and 1064 wavelength had advantages that earned practitioner’s loyalty. Now, Alma’s Soprano ICE puts all three wavelengths in reach from one platform.

Soprano ICE – The Only Device Available with All Three Wavelengths

In this webinar, internationally acclaimed dermatologist and researcher, Dr. Michael Gold, shares his experience with utilizing all three wavelengths and other advantages of Alma’s Soprano ICE.

Dr. Gold explores:

  • Maximizing treatment results
  • Maximizing patient comfort via IN-Motion™ and advancement in cooling
  • The benefits of reducing treatment times
  • The 810 wavelength history and key advantages
  • The 755 wavelengths with skin types III and IV
  • Serious problems with 755 technology that Alma’s Soprano ICE resolved
  • The 1064 wavelength and darker skin types
  • Working with Alma’s tapered tip for hard to reach, smaller areas

All providers want to give patients the best experience and results that they can. Doing so requires technology that can treat the widest range of patients and hair types while increasing comfort and giving the patient a superior experience.

A New Era for Tattoo Removal Lasers

The all NEW, FDA cleared ALMA-Q signals the arrival of a new era for tattoo removal lasers.

The ALMA-Q  features a Q-switched, Long Pulsed, and double pulse mode on a single dedicated platform, giving providers unmatched power and versatility when  treating  a wide range of aesthetic dermal indications including tattoo removal.

Buffalo Grove, Illinois – (July 4, 2017) – Alma Lasers, a global innovator of laser, light-based, radiofrequency and ultrasound solutions for the aesthetic and surgical markets, announced today the launch of ALMA-Q, the most powerful, triple mode Nd:YAG laser treatment solution available for laser tattoo removal and other dermal indications.

Alma Lasers, known for innovative multi-platform systems such as Harmony XL PRO, Soprano  ICE, FemiLift and vShape Ultra, is proud to add the ALMA-Q to its already diverse portfolio of powerful aesthetic and surgical technologies.

With the tattoo removal industry growing at an unprecedented rate, ALMA-Q provides a one-of-a-kind, high power tattoo removal laser solution that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum to treat a wide range of colors. The high powered Q-switched 1064 nm laser is ideal for treating darker tattoo ink colors while the 532 nm wavelength is effective for treating the majority of brighter, tattoo ink colors.

In addition to laser tattoo removal, the ALMA-Q can be used to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. The high power Q-switched Nd: YAG 1064 laser is effective for treating deep benign pigmented lesions. Likewise, the Long Pulsed 1064 nm laser can effectively treat deep benign vascular lesions.

For tattoo removal professionals, the high powered Q-switch laser is the most effective method for removing natural or artificial pigmentation while minimizing the risk of damage to the surrounding tissue. ALMA-Q’s capabilities further extend the potency of the Q-switched laser opening the door to additional treatment possibilities. As an added benefit, ALMA-Q offers energy delivery in both single and double pulse modes available in 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths.

“ALMA-Q is the most powerful triple mode Nd:YAG laser treatment solution available today,” says Avi Farbstein, CEO of Alma Lasers North America. “The triple mode ALMA-Q Nd:YAG laser solution features precise therapeutic treatments, offering 532nm and 1064nm Q-switched laser wavelengths, as well as the Long-Pulsed Nd:YAG laser, within a single platform.  It is extremely powerful for tattoo removal and pigment removal treatments.”
