Rejuvenate Your Skin with Numerous Laser Options for Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, and Newtown Square
The Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa team offers FDA-cleared Alma Hybrid™ for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, and Philadelphia area patients who want to enhance the overall tone and texture of their skin. Starting in our 20s, our skin begins to lose volume and elasticity, which continues every year of our life. Intrinsic aging (which is based on our age) and extrinsic aging (which occurs due to sun exposure, air pollution, and smoking) both contribute to this process. Laser treatments are effective strategies for reversing the damage and restoring the volume.
Alma Hybrid™ is the first and only comprehensive laser system of its kind to combine two strong core energies—10,600 nm (CO2) ablative laser and 1570 nm non-ablative laser—into a single platform to provide dramatic results with greatly reduced downtime.
What is Alma Hybrid™?
In the past, patients could only have laser procedures that were either ablative (removing the skin’s surface) or non-ablative (keeping the surface intact). HyGridTM used in Alma Hybrid™ harnesses the benefits of both types of lasers in one device.
Alma Hybrid™ includes an ablative 10,600 nm (CO2) laser and a nonablative 1570 nm laser for skin resurfacing to provide a higher level of flexibility and safety for treatments. The treatments can be customized depending on skin type, the area being treated, and desired results.
The high-performance delivery method used in Alma Hybrid™ is designed to minimize downtime for patients while optimizing results. It not only resurfaces the skin on the face and body, but delivers thermal energy to the deeper layers of skin to encourage collagen and elastin production.
Which Treatments Are Available with Alma Hybrid™?
Some of the top treatments performed with Alma Hybrid™ are resurfacing of the face and neck to soften wrinkles, tighten the skin, and remove sun damage, as well as treatment for acne scars.
Who is a Candidate for Alma Hybrid™?
Patients who have wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and other tone and texture irregularities will benefit from Alma Hybrid™. The procedure is safe for most skin types, including darker skin tones.
Results and Recovery from Alma Hybrid™
Alma Hybrid™ bridges the gap between maximizing results and minimizing downtime. Patients usually have very minimal downtime after the laser treatment, but may experience some minor, short-term redness, dryness, and peeling. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to optimize results.
Other Types of Skin Resurfacing Procedures
An extensive range of other laser treatments are available at the Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa, including laser hair removal, laser vein treatment, and laser skin resurfacing with carbon dioxide (CO2) or erbium yag (Erb:YAG). We also offer gentle intense pulsed light treatments for addressing unwanted redness and pigmentation.
