Skin Remodelling & Lifting
Painless and precisely adapted to treat delicate areas
Radiance, clarity and smooth texture are the hallmarks of youthful skin. But over time, challenging age-related skin imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, uneven skin tone and skin laxity can take their toll.
We can now treat these problematic areas using Alma’s specially designed Harmony ClearLift™ laser treatment and high powered Near Infrared technology. Each method has been clinically proven to be safe and effective for all skin types as well as for thin and delicate areas of the skin such as the face, neck and décolleté.
ClearLift™ addresses existing indications while also helping to bolster the skin against future ageing by enhancing your natural beauty and revealing smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin. The treatments are ‘lunchtime procedures’ that are virtually painless with no downtime, no need for pre-treatment anaesthetic.
Q: Tell me about the Laser machine?
Alma Harmony™ XL Pro laser machine is a powerful, all-in-one solution for all of your aesthetic needs. Using breakthroughs in medical aesthetic research and technology, Harmony helps to stop the clock from head to toe, with a wide variety of treatment solutions customised to your specific needs.
Q: How does it work?
While most laser procedures produce a thermal effect to stimulate collagen renewal, Alma ClearLift™ uses a specially designed fractional Q-Switched laser to achieve a deep mechanical effect, focusing the energy beneath the epidermis. This creates a controlled dermal wound while leaving the epidermis intact. The wound healing process stimulates growth of new collagen as well as contracture and tightening of the tissue.
Q: Am I suitable for the treatment?
Prior to treatment, a consultation is carried out during which a medical history questionnaire needs to be completed to confirm suitability for treatment. Our laser specialist is required to do a small patch test on the area to be treated 24 hours prior to your first session. As long as no adverse reactions take place, then treatment can go ahead.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A course of six treatments is generally recommended, once every 2-4 weeks. During your initial consultation with our laser specialist, she will tailor a bespoke treatment plan for you.
Q: Are there any Risks & Complications?
ClearLift™ is virtually painless with no downtime. No recovery time needed but redness, swelling and heat rash may occur immediately after treatment and pigmentation can darken.
Q: How long will the results last?
Each individual patient’s results will be different. After six to twelve months from your initial course, a top-up treatment is advised. Lifestyle can have a huge effect on how long results will last.
Q: Is there any before and aftercare information I should know about?
– Avoid the sun 4-6 weeks before and after treatment. This also includes sun beds.
– The use of tanning cream must be discontinued 1 week before treatment.
– Do not use any harsh products on the skin 48hours prior to treatment (Glycolic/Retinol or acid-based products).
– Avoid sun exposure & use sunscreen SPF 50 at all times throughout the course of treatment.
– Avoid hot baths and heat treatments and treat the skin gently, as if you had sunburn, for the first 24 hours.
