Alma's new aesthetic laser receives FDA clearance

Alma Lasers : 30 May, 2008  (New Product)
Alma Lasers has received FDA clearance for its Harmony(XL), the newest platform for multiple aesthetic laser and light treatments.
The Harmony(XL) can be used to treat more than 60 popular aesthetic indications and applications, including acne, skin rejuvenation, hair removal, varicose veins, stretch marks, tattoo removal, wrinkles and skin tightening.

The Harmony(XL) device is the most comprehensive and versatile platform to enter the medical and aesthetic industry, as it is the first to combine lasers, pulsed light, near-infrared, LED and UVB technologies with multiple exchangeable handpieces to ensure easy and effective singular and combined therapeutic treatment.

The device also accommodates new versions of Alma's unique Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) and several different laser technologies. Compared to its successful predecessor, Harmony(XL) delivers higher energy and is the first Harmony model to incorporate Alma's proprietary IN-Motion technology, which delivers effective energy with virtually no discomfort over a range of applications. Additionally, the Harmony(XL) exclusively offers high-power Pixel(R) 2940 technology - a breakthrough for fractionated skin resurfacing treatments.

'The FDA clearance of the Harmony(XL) reinforces Alma Lasers' commitment to developing and marketing innovative treatments for patients with every skin type and skin concern,' said Howard Kelly, chief executive officer of Alma Lasers. 'While other systems in the market claim versatility by merging technologies or providing multiple handpieces, no other aesthetic system offers as many combined treatment possibilities and performance as the Harmony(XL).'

Every Harmony(XL) handpiece is designed for maximum effectiveness with minimal patient discomfort. One of the most popular options is the Laser360 skin rejuvenation treatment. The new procedure uses three handpieces from the Harmony(XL) system to treat a wide range of age and photo-damage symptoms. Patients can achieve outstanding results in just 60 days, with minimal or no downtime.

'To give patients a complete treatment, often physicians need two, three or four different lasers, but with the Harmony(XL) you have one platform with different handpieces, taking the place of larger devices. You can start with one handpiece, treat, and then quickly and easily switch to a different one,' said Dr Stuart Melnick, medical director, Laser and Cosmetic Center in Los Gatos, California, USA.
