Alma created Advanced Fluorescence Technology™ (AFT), to benefit the most important person in the treatment room – the patient.
Welcomed as the next generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), AFT converts unused short-wavelength light into the usable spectrum.
The conversion increases emission and penetration into the treatment area and allows for lower fluence to be used.
The lower energy minimizes the chances of unwanted adverse events associated with traditional IPL and helps maximize patient comfort.
Results are permanent on skin imperfections that already exist, however, AFT does not prevent further age spots or future sun/skin damage. As long as you care for your skin properly via a proper skin care routine and sun protection, we recommend only 2-3 maintenance sessions a year to maintain results.
Most patients will start to see changes in their skin after just one session of AFT, but depending on the severity of your skin irregularities, additional sessions may be necessary. Most patients require 4-5 sessions total for maximum results. A 3-4-week rest period between treatments is mandatory for skin safety and healing. We recommend 2-3 maintenance treatments are recommended per year once desired results are achieved.
AFT treatment will take around 60 minutes for the entire treatment. The skin will be thoroughly cleaned and the surface dead skin exfoliated by means of series of enzymes and alpha hydroxyl acids, then we used the hand piece of AFT which will give you instant glow.
Most patients experience very little to no pain during treatment. The AFT hand piece has a built-in cooling technique that ensures safety and comfort during the procedure. Most patients compare the feeling of the laser to a very light snapping of a rubber band with a bit of heat, but still very tolerable. After your procedure, you might feel a very slight stinging sensation for an hour or two that compares to a mild sunburn.
AFT is both safe and effective. AFT usually has zero side effects or downtime and is virtually painless. The only precaution issued to patients is requiring that they stay out of the sun or tanning beds for 24 hours after their procedure and use a minimum of SPF 30 in the following weeks when your skin is more susceptible to sun damage than normal.
AFT is suitable for anyone who would like to reduce flaws on their skin such as rosacea, age spots, dark spots, discoloration, broken capillaries, acne and other scaring, redness, and freckles.
AFT is more effective for those with light to medium skin tones, but your therapist will be able to assess how effective it is expected to be for your individual skin tone.
AFT stands for Advanced Fluorescent Technology. AFT is the next generation non-invasive of IPL laser treatment technology that improves the texture, tone, porses, rosacea, broken cappillaris, sun spot and appearance of the skin with minimal downtime.
