The Alma Hybrid is the first and only treatment of its kind to combine two powerful laser energies to address a variety of skin issues. This treatment includes optimal ablation for resurfacing and deep thermal effects to stimulate new collagen production. This treatment is ideal for individuals who are looking to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring or overall facial rejuvenation.
The Alma Hybrid works by using a combining CO2 laser and non-ablative 1570nm laser technologies using precise fractional ablative laser energy to gently resurface the top layer of skin. The C02 lower within the Alma Hybrid creates micro-passages within the skin stimulating the growth of new collagen. The non-ablative 1570nm laser is precise and potent, relying on a thermal effect to trigger regeneration of the dermis, or the deeper layers of the skin.
