Highly Effective Aesthetic Laser Treatments Just Got "Patient-Friendly"

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the growing number of men and women that choose to improve the appearance of their skin and reduce the signs of aging, a breakthrough in non-invasive skin technology boasts more aggressive treatments with less discomfort and no downtime.

Released by Alma Lasers, Inc., a leader in laser, light, radiofrequency aesthetic and medical devices, ClearLift is a technological breakthrough that offers dramatic, trusted results found with traditional laser resurfacing with minimal pain, discomfort and recovery time. The treatment's high-powered Q-Switched hand piece delivers a controlled dermal effect (up to 3mm in depth), so that all stages of wound healing and skin remodeling occur under the biologic protection of an intact epidermis. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately following treatment without redness or swelling.

ClearLift is also effective on sensitive areas that tend to scar with laser-based treatments like the skin around the eye, chest area, loose skin on the neck and the delicate area around the mouth. Furthermore, ClearLift penetrates deep beneath the skin and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen growth and clinical studies have shown it's reliable and effective to use on all skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI) including tanned skin.

"ClearLift is unique from every other laser in its category," says Dr. Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, PhD, a board certified dermatologist practicing in New York. "The laser penetrates deep but by bypassing the outer most layer of skin and not wounding it, it renders the treatment virtually painless, with no downtime while being extraordinarily safe. It is, therefore, the treatment of choice for repairing as well as treating sensitive areas, which historically were very difficult to treat due to their association with an increased risk of burns and scars."

"The results that physicians and patients have seen when using our ClearLift technology further validates Alma Lasers' consistent ability to offer cutting edge technologies that meet the demands of the market," said Avi Farbstein, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Alma Lasers. "This revolutionary technology gives our customers a strong competitive advantage in the marketplace."

Patients treated with ClearLift typically need three to five treatments spaced about a month apart in order to see maximum results. No numbing is required prior to treatment and patients return to work the same day and have no prolonged facial redness and swelling.
