Alma Lasers High Power Pixel 2940 Er: YAG

This FDA approved laser is used to give patients a more youthful appearance with the High Power Pixel 2940 skin resurfacing laser... more info

A series of two to four virtually pain-free treatments will gradually stimulate new cells to replace aged and photo-damaged skin, with little patient downtime.

This powerful laser treatment is suitable for skin types 4 and above as there is less risk of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

Also delicate areas such as the neck, chest and hands are suitable for treatment with this laser.

This laser is suitable for

  1. Fractional ablative skin resurfacing
  2. Laser Peel
  3. Scar remodeling

Here are some examples of pre and post treatment photos.


Harmony®XL Q Switched Nd: YAG laser

The FDA approved Harmony®XL is the world's most versatile and expandable platform for aesthetic laser and light treatments. Its modular design provides your practice multiple distinct cosmetic solutions all built into one compact unit

This is This is used to treat pigmented lesions and removal black blue and green tattoos with 1064 nm wavelength and red orange and yellow with the 532 nm wavelength.

Tattoo removal typically requires six to eight or more treatments, spaced approximately four to eight weeks apart.


CureLight iclear XL

iClearXL is an effective dual mode spectrally selective plasma light source for the phototherapy of Inflammatory Acne, acceleration of post surgery healing and the visible revitalization of aging skin.

iClearXL uses high intensity plasma pure blue violet light for the fast, effective and safe treatment of inflammatory acne. Narrow band near infra red light is used for skin photo rejuvenation and enhanced healing of injured skin such as after skin resurfacing, promoted by enhancing dermal blood circulation and tissue oxygenation

iClearXL uses pure blue violet (405-420nm) and narrow band near infrared therapeutic light (850-900nm) to treat acne and visibly enhance the look of photoaged skin.

The iClearXL uses 2 modes:

Acne mode: The UV free iClearXL carefully selects the most accurate effective 405-420nm wavelengths of light for acne treatment. It covers the entire face with a bright safe blue violet pure light effective on the molecular and cell levels without the injuring thermal effect of intense short pulses of non-selective IPL light

Near Infra Red (NIR) mode: The iClearXL deep penetrating Near Infrared (850-900nm) light component plays a vital role in photo rejuvenation of aging skin. Nitric Oxide is released into vascular muscles which entails vessels dilatation, enhancement of blood circulation leading to better cellular oxygenation. Increased circulation has shown to be instrumental in the acceleration of healing of post peel and post surgical suture sites most importantly Rhytidectomy and ischemic flaps. Selected clinical work has shown that the iClearXL works in excellent synergy with topical anti oxidants and lymphatic drainage procedures, for a revitalized, radiant and younger looking skin.

Treating Acne Prone Skin 3x Times Faster

The high intensity 405-420nm blue violet band emitted by the iClearXL is the most effective light for the photo destruction of P.acnes bacteria, resulting in treatment of facial and back acne three times faster than any other treatment. The iClearXL uses the Wall Street Journal innovation award winner technology that was the first ever FDA technology cleared to treat inflammatory Acne vulgaris. This unique scientifically proven technology has been endorsed by leading dermatologists in the USA, Europe and Japan, and has benefited thousands of patients in over 600 clinics. Treatments require short twice-a-week visits for a period of 4 weeks.

Skin Rejuvenation and Enhanced Healing

Current skin rejuvenation treatments by intense pulse light or laser use injuring high energies to heat collagen and trigger regeneration. These non selective skin rejuvenation and anti aging schedules lack the vital circulation enhancer, anti ischemic, anti inflammatory effects provided by the iClearXL. The iClearXL increases blood circulation, improves tissue oxygenation and promotes regeneration process.

Basic science research show that micro inflammation is one of the main causes of collagen degradation in aged skin. Reduction of pro inflammatory cytokines by the 405-420nm light reduces micro inflammation poised to have a role in better fibroblast activity and collagen repair remodeling.

The enhanced dermal blood circulation plays a major role to improve lymphatic drainage - a prerequisite for quicker skin rejuvenation. Patients can be comfortably treated 1-3 times a week for 15 minutes with a highly pleasant blend of pure blue violet and near infrared light.

Benefits of iClearXL Phototherapy

Multiple applications: acne, photo rejuvenation and injured skin healing including the shortening of the post skin resurfacing erythema duration with the selectable exact wavelengths of light.

Effective: Targets cellular mechanisms with the exact wavelengths and the exact intensity (Selective Photo clearing Technology-SPC).

Safe: UV free system clears acne and revitalizes aging skin without the thermal risks associated with non selective intense pulsed light systems.

Scientifically proven: Used effectively and safely on all skin types in hundreds of clinics. Endorsed by leading dermatologists in major universities and clinics across five continents.
