The iPixel CO2 and iPixelEr pixel modules for aesthetic fractional laser resurfacing from Alma Lasers (Buffalo Grove, IL) feature the company's roller technology, which allows the laser to glide along skin to deliver ablative treatment in less time. The modules pulse energy into the thermal ablative processes while channeled through one row of seven pixels to enable removal of fine lines, wrinkles and post-acne scars.
Alma Lasers Introduces the iPixel Fractional Ablative Technology
Unique Roller Handpieces Glide Across the Skin to Dramatically Reduce Treatment Time While Delivering Safe, Effective Energy for Skin Rejuvenation
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill.,Alma Lasers Ltd., a global leader in laser, light, radiofrequency and ultrasound-based aesthetic treatment devices, today announced the launch of its new iPixel series of innovative pixel modules for aesthetic fractional laser resurfacing.
The iPixel CO2, and the iPixelEr—each feature Alma's roller-style technology which delivers fast, safe treatments with great maneuverability and versatility. This innovative design allows the physician to glide the laser along the patient's skin smoothly, delivering precision and an effective ablative treatment in a fraction of the time.
With Alma's unique modular platforms, each of the new iPixel series modules can be used with existing Alma systems. This enables treatment providers the advantage of offering another option in safe and effective treatments without the need to purchase additional systems that take up valuable office space. "The iPixel series applicators are rolled across the skin," said Alma Lasers CEO Dr. Ziv Karni. "All modules pulse energy into the thermal ablative processes while channeled through a single row of seven pixels."
In the case of the iPixelEr, for use with the HarmonyXL, the energy delivered is impressive while treatment time is cut in half. For a limited time, the HarmonyXL is now available with all three applicator tips -- the iPixelEr, the 7X7 stationary and the 4mm Erbium tips -- allowing skin care professionals to choose the right technology for each patient's needs.
The iPixelCO2, for use with the Pixel CO2 system, channels 70 Watts of energy into only seven pixels, and pulses are released as the roller wheels turn, regardless of the speed at which the handpiece is moving. "While the rollers speed up the treatment, the energy per laser spot causes fractional ablation leading to improved patient and physician satisfaction," Karni said. "With the iPixel, the removal of fine lines, wrinkles and post-acne scars and skin rejuvenation is quicker without compromising results."
"All skin care professionals are looking for faster, more efficient technologies without the need for costly disposables to meet the demands of time-pressed patients and revenue stream objectives. These modules provide outstanding advantages to professionals seeking the best results for their patients and practice," said Avi Farbstein, EVP/GM of North America.
