Alma Harmony XL Pro® Dye VL® handpiece uses AFT (advanced florescence technology) exclusive to Alma Lasers. It is an advance system of intense pulsed light (IPL) that is safe and efficient in treating the following conditions:
- Age spots
- Irregular pigmentation
- Facial spider veins
- Port wine stains
How does it work?
Dye VL® uses light energy to target chromophores. These are the molecules that give a lesion its color: hemoglobin in vascular lesions and melanin in pigmented lesions. These chromophores absorb the wavelengths of light causing the molecule to heat and break down. Dye VL® uses a special filtering system to provide a uniform light pulse and more predictable treatment to achieve desired results.
During the treatment:
Sessions typically last about 30 minutes, but this may vary depending on the size of the area being treated. There will be little or no pain and numbing is not required.
The treated area will be cleansed to remove lotions, cosmetics or perfumes and appropriate eye protection is necessary. An ultrasound gel is applied which will feel cool while the handpiece delivers precise pulses of light to the targeted area. After treatment a sunscreen is applied and patients can return to their normal activities.
Areas of pigmentation will become darker post treatment but then the spots will begin to clear leaving a more even skin tone. Sometimes there can be some swelling after vascular lesions treatment. On average 3-5 treatments are needed to achieve desired results.
