Alma has developed a method that uses groundbreaking technology to offer a simple, one-stop solution for truly effective hair removal.
SHR’s unique gradual heating method effectively damages the hair follicles while avoiding injury to the surrounding skin. The sweeping In-motionTM delivery technique keeps the laser in constant motion ensuring full coverage of the treated area. The improved coverage helps practitioners avoid unwanted results such as “Zebra stripes” associated with older, stationary methods.
Most hair removal devices use one specific type of laser wavelength. The most common ones are the 755nm, 808nm and 1064nm laser wavelengths. Each of these has unique characteristics and different absorption levels in Melanin. Melanin is the chromophore that determines a person’s skin and hair color. Alma’s newest Soprano laser devices combine all of these wavelengths simultaneously which makes them suitable for ALL SKIN TYPES.
Simultaneous contact cooling, introduced with Alma’s award-winning Soprano ICE laser, prevents burns and allows for more comfortable treatment. The specialized applicator allows you to treat large areas in less time than before.
Whether you have light, dark or tanned skin, coarse or fine hair, Alma’s hair removal solutions achieve maximum results for all areas of the body with treatments that are safe, quick and best of all- virtually painless.
