Alma-Q presents the the most powerful triple mode Nd: YAG laser treatment solution available, g-featuring Q-switched, Long Pulsed and Quasi-Long Pulsed modes on a single, dedicated platform.
With Double Pulse technology offering up to 2,000mj per pulse, an extraordinarily short pulse width of 7sec, unique technological innovations including depth control and fractional delivery and additional options of working with both the Long Pulsed and Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd: YAG 1064nm laser, Alama-Q is unmatched inits power and versatility for treating a wide range of aesthetic dermal indications.
Alma-Q is highly effective for treating various degrees and depths of pigmented lesions as well as melasma.The high power Q-switched Nd:YAG 1064nm laser treats deep pigmented lesions, while the 532nm wavelength addresses superficial pigmented lesions.The treatment mechanically breaks up the melanin in the lesions without causing thermal damage ,revealing lighter, unblemished skin.
Alma –Q features the first fractional non –ablative Q-Switched laser that offers depth control,allowing practitioners to use the powerful benefits of a high intensity Q-Switched laser for the treatment of age related skin imperfections including wrinkles, fine lines, photo damage , uneven skin tone and skin laxity.
These indications may also be addressed using the Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd: YAG1064nm laser which achieves neo-collagenases and skin remodeling through selective heating.The QLP emits light through ultra –short pulses at a high repetition rate to elevate dermal temperature.This mechanism causes micro thermal injury to the tissue which contracts existing fibers, stimulates the formation of new collagen and improves its alignment and thickness.
Both treatments are safe an effective for even thin and delicate areas of the skin such as the face, neck and decollete areas.
Successful multi –color tattoo remal requires ahigh powered laser that can deliver enough within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors. The high power Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors(black, blue and green),while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors(red, orange and yellow).The treatment mechanically breaks down ink particles without causing the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
The Long Pulsed Nd:YAG1064nm laser provides a powerful, non –invasive solution for vascular lesions,malformations and deep veins. In addiction to its deep peneration and effective heating ,the 1064nm wavelength is more readily low absorption by melanin. This triggers phtothermolysis of the water and hemoglobin chromophore, effectively targeting vascular lesions while avoiding damage to the epidemis.
The ultra – short pulse duration of the Quasi-Long pulsed Nd:YAG 1064nm laser makes this mode ideally suited for treating microvasculature , including angioectasias, telangiectaias and erythrma inmelasma lesions.
The Q-Switched Laser
The high powered Q-switched laser is the most effective the potency of the Q-switched laser,opening the method for removing natural or artificial pigmentation, while mimimizing the risk of damage to surrounding tissue. Alma-Q’s fractional capabilities further extend the potency of the Q-Switched laser ,opening the door to additional treatment possibilities,including while minimizing the risk of damage to surrounding tissue. Alma –Q’s Fractional capabilities further extend associated with aging.
The Q-Switched Effects
Ama –Q delivers photo acoustic shockwaves to the target area through high laser intensities in ultra –short nanosecond pulses.This method creates controlled dermal wounds via a mechnical Q-switched effect –a unique mechnism of action that achieves optimal results for various indications without causing thermal damage or coagulation in the surrounding tissue.
Single and Double Pulse Technologies
Alma Q offers energy delivery in both single pulse and Double pulse modes.Double pulse technology disperses the laser energy into two consecutive pulses mitigating peak power while delivering maximum energy of up to 21per pulse.By creating a flat –top beam, maximum energy may be delivered evenly over
The skin without risking epidermal injury .Both Single pulse and Double pulse are available in both the QSW 1064nm and QSW532nm wavelengths.
Pixel Fractional Q-Switched Laser with Depth control
Alma-Q’s pixel handpiece offers the first fractional Q-switched laser for skin rejuvenation that features unique depth control capabilities .Variable depth control allows practitioners to combine both deep superficial treatment approaches depending on the area being treated ,the skin type or the indication. Varible depths can also be used for combination work on the same area to achieve optimal results.
