Skin Tightening Skin Resurfacing Skin Rejuvenation Scars & Acne Scars model PIXEL CO2
The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser has been known to provide some of the most dramatic, age-defying results in the treatment of challenging skin imperfections including wrinkles, fine lines, photodamage, uneven skin tone and skin laxity, as well as in scar treatment, skin tags and benign tumors.
Modes of Operation
- CW Mode ( Continuous Wave)
- Pulse Mode ( Single Pulse )
- Repeat Mode
- Super Pulse Mode
There are various applicators as follows:
Various Spot Sizes (VSS) Applicator
Flexible spot size adjustment, ideal for individual skin tags and lesions The VSS applicator can change the size of the laser spot from 1mm to 4mm using a single applicator. This allows physicians to work with larger spot sizes while maintaining work stability during treatment. It is ideal for removing skin tags and other benign skin growths as well as individual pigmented lesions.
Alma’s Focus applicators combine cutting and coagulation into a single setting. Both work synergistically, allowing physicians to perform both actions without having to switch applicators or parameters during procedures. In “cut” (ablation) mode, short pulses emit high peak power, causing immediate ablation of tissue. In “coagulation” (thermal) mode, a longer pulse emits low to modest power, generating heat, which causes blood vessels and tissue to shrink. This sequential-action pulse allows physicians to achieve optimal tissue incision or excision cutting with minimal bleeding as well as reduced patient downtime. Fixed focus applicators of the two spot sizes allow for precise and accurate soft tissue cutting.
The new and uniquely designed SkinTight applicator is a CO2 probe created specifically for skin tightening. It features a large, 6mm spot size and uses a defocused low fluence laser beam to gently heat tissue without ablation; effectively heating the dermal layer and triggering neocollagenesis. Energy is applied to the skin without contact and is suitable for treating fine lines, wrinkles and for skin tightening of the face, neck and dיcolletי.
The Pixel CO2 laser energy to the skin through a DOE (Diffractive Optical Element) which pixelates the beam to either 49 or 81 pixels, creating simultaneous microscopic columns of micro-ablative damage. The energy is delivered in a square pattern with an 11x11mm spot size. This unique technology approach enables the use of much higher energy levels via longer pulse durations, creating a greater coagulation and thermal effect with minimal ablation and significantly less patient downtime. The deep thermal effect of the Pixel applicator makes it ideal for skin rejuvenation, treating fin lines and wrinkles.
LiteScan is a handheld microprocessor-controlled laser scanner for char-free ablative procedures that allows for rapid coverage of large areas. It is designed for use in a variety of dermatological, cosmetic and surgical applications. Multiple scanning options are available including square or circle, in a spiral, grid or circumferential pattern as well as straight or curved lines. LiteScan optimizes treatment efficacy by providing higher energy output per pixel in shorter pulses for ablative procedures. The galvanometric scanning motor delivers energy more quickly per scanning area than the CO2 focus applicators, for faster and more efficient coverage of large surface areas.
