The Harmony Laser360iQ from Alma Lasers is one of the most popular treatments on the market for improving the skin's appearance. It can also be used for hair and tattoo removal.
It is backed by five distinctly different technologies that all have their benefits and can be combined in many different ways depending on the needs of the patient.
AFT intense pulsed light; used to even out the skin colour and pigmentation. It can also reduce any tiny broken blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue.
Near-infrared; this provides a deep heating action that stimulates collagen and elastin production, therefore tightens the skin. Particularly suited for treating the mid-face and jawline.
Pixel; a precision laser that creates thousands of microscopic 'injuries' to the skin. This causes the body to produce new collagen that will improve skin tone and texture and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
High Power Q-Switched; this module can be used for the non-invasive removal of tattoos, but in skin rejuvenation terms, it is used to remove any pigmented lesions on the skin such as age or brown spots.
Pixel Pro; a high-powered Pixel laser that provides an impressive skin rejuvenation treatment with little downtime or discomfort.
Harmony Laser360iQ: Am I suitable?
This treatment is suitable for people looking to improve the colour, tone, texture or laxity of their skin. It can be used to treat anywhere on the face, neck, chest or hands – anywhere that's seeing the effects of age or sun damage. It is suitable for most people as it can be used on any skin type.
Harmony Laser360iQ: What's the treatment like?
Utilising five different technologies, the Harmony Laser360iQ can be customised to each patient's specific needs, whether it be ageing or sun damage concerns. Treatments can either be done in a single session or a number of sessions over a period of time.
Harmony Laser360iQ : What about after?
There is no downtime after this treatment so normal activities can be resumed immediately.
The Pixel laser does cause tiny 'injuries' to the skin, but don't worry, these 'injuries' are so microscopic and surrounded by healthy untouched skin, that they heal very rapidly. The results of the Pixel treatment are not immediate but improvements to tone and texture will take a few weeks as the new collagen is produced in the treated area.
The treatment consists of four to six treatment sessions that are tailor-made for your needs as the five technologies can be used in different combinations. The sessions are usually spaced about ten to fifteen days apart over a period of two months.
You should be able to see results within just five days and the full effects will be visible at a month post-procedure.
Harmony Laser360iQ : Are there any risks or side effects?
