Photo-depilation on AFT «SPA Alma Laser»

The unique new generation device created using the innovation Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) provides efficient solutions to multiple aesthetic skin issues, including the problem of unwanted hair.

The Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) is the next generation of intense pulsed light. This technology offers greater light emission and allows for deeper penetration of light into tissue, which is both efficient and safe for hair removal.

Photo-depilation is carried out without damaging the surrounding tissue. The device may be used on all skin types, has the ability to treat any hair texture and color, on all parts of the body. «SPA Alma Laser» device offers such advantages as high efficiency and painless depilation procedure:

SOPRANO ICE - A painless, new-generation, enhanced diode laser. Treatments can be equally performed in summer.
BLISS Center of Beauty and Relaxation utilizes Alma Laser’s “Soprano ICE” diode laser (2015, prod. Israel), which was awarded Best Laser Hair Removal 2015 at The Aesthetic Industry Awards due to its veritable painlessness.


The Soprano ICE™ applies the Super Hair Removal (SHR) system, which achieves good results for fair hair types. The treatment can be also performed in summer and on tanned skin. The Soprano ICE™ new generation diode laser uses a completely new patented technology called the SHR (Super Hair Removal) which is designed for a safe, effective and virtually painless laser hair removal. The SHR Principle: the hair follicle is affected not only by the laser beam, but also by the laser’s thermal energy, which accumulates in the hair follicle until the optimum temperature for the follicle’s damage is obtained. Upon reaching the required temperature, the hair follicles get destroyed. In other words, the hair follicle gets penetrated by up to 10 impulses until it gets completely destroyed. Thus, the SHR technology provides a more efficient destruction of the hair follicle and prevents a subsequent hair growth. Differences between the enhanced Soprano ICE™ version and the Soprano lasers of the previous generation:

  • A reinforced SHR technology diode laser of 810 nm, which provides an impact of equal temperature on the deep skin layer, expediting the result and making it more efficient.
  • Now, you can carry out your beauty treatment in summer and on tanned skin. The procedure is suitable for all skin types.
  • The treatment is almost painless. The laser hair removal procedure is pleasant like a hot stone massage, or just causes a nice feeling of warmth. At the same time, there is a pleasant feeling of cold due to the inbuilt cooling system.
  • The treatment procedure requires much less time.
  • An enhanced ergonomic design provides easy access to previously inaccessible areas, such as eyebrows, ears, nostrils or the bikini line.
  • Procedures are also suitable for light thin body hairs. Cost effectiveness of the laser hair removal: laser hair removal procedures are carried out 2-3 times less often than depilatory waxing. Thus, the laser hair removal procedure would be even cheaper for those who perform depilatory waxing on a regular basis.

What can I expect after a laser hair removal?

Even after the first laser hair removal procedure, the hairs do not grow in, they start to grow straight, and spots disappear. After a course of treatments, epilation-related skin damage, as well as rashes, disappear; the skin becomes much smoother. As a result of the laser hair removal, 85-95% of hairs get destroyed. The hair growth cycle consists of three successive phases: growth, resting and shedding. The hair is subject to the greatest impact in the growth phase. Therefore, to achieve the best results, a complete course of treatments is required to ensure the impact on all the hair follicles.

Is the effect from the laser hair removal permanent?

Yes, it is. The hair does not grow from the destroyed hair follicle; though, occasionally, it is recommended to perform maintaining treatments. Most clients carry them out once a year.

How many Soprano Ice laser hair removal treatments are required?

The skin condition improves significantly after the first Soprano Ice laser hair removal treatment, however, to achieve the best result, a course of 6 - 8 treatments performed every 4-12 weeks is recommended.

What should I know before performing the first Soprano Ice diode laser treatment?

  • Within 1 month before the treatment do not pull out or wax-remove the hairs. Such methods of hair removal in which the roots remain intact, i.e. shaving or grooming, are allowed. The treatment procedure requires clean skin; hairs should be shaved either the same day, or the evening of the previous day. Note: It is not recommended to shave facial hairs -- it is better to groom them.
  • The treatment can be performed on tanned skin in summer.
  • Sunbathing or solarium frequentation 15 days before and after the treatment is not recommended.
  • Do not apply irritating agents such as glycolic acid, retinoids, etc. on the skin one week before the treatment.
  • The treatment effect increases if your skin is light but your body hairs are darker. For fair hair types, this treatment procedure is more effective than with other types of lasers.
  • It is not allowed for pregnant women to perform the treatment. Nursing mothers are allowed to carry it out.

LED Facial Mask - the most promising trend in Aesthetic Cosmetology This unique device is an advanced development of scientists who have more than thirty-five years of successful innovations experience in medicine and cosmetology.

What is it?
Phototherapy is a non-invasive method of facial and body care, which uses a narrow-band, non-thermal light energy to activate the natural processes of cell renewal and skin reparation. Using a clinically proven light-emitting diode (LED), photodynamic therapy provides excellent results for a wide range of common skin concerns, including aging skin and acne. Photodynamic therapy also provides treatment for hypersensitive and reactive skin and skin with rosacea, pigmentation and inflammatory diseases (eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.).

How does it work?
Under the influence of various LED-lights, the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibres gets enhanced, melanin gets blocked, the processes of growth and differentiation of cells increase, the fibrous tissues start being replaced by healthy collagen, and the stimulation of the microvasculature vessels growth in the affected areas is intensified. Under the influence of LED-lights, damaged cell membranes get restored and the cell growth is accelerated. As a result of the aging process, skin diseases or injuries, healthy skin cells are at risk and are unable to be regenerated properly. Skin has the ability to absorb certain wavelengths of light (colour) and to use them as a source of energy to activate specific cell functions for a therapeutic effect. Light therapy can reproduce these separate wavelengths (nm) to recharge the cells, to activate them, to regenerate and to rejuvenate them faster. Successful LED-phototherapy treatment is defined by the usage of clinically proven wavelengths, which allow for specific cellular responses. The essence of LED-therapy is in the delivery of medical and nutritional resources into deep skin layers. During the treatment procedure, cosmetic products are delivered with the help of LED-light waves. Due to this light exposure, micro-pores in the upper layers of the skin and the cell membranes open temporarily, allowing for the absorption of pre-applied active agent ingredients.

What is the light spectrum in phototherapy?
Our skin is the largest perception organ, absorbing 80% of the light, with only 20% of the light impulses getting to the brain via the optic nerve. Depending on the wavelength, the light of different colours can penetrate up to 30 mm into the skin layers, providing the following effects:

Red (628-780 nm): one of the most powerful ones:
The optimal treatment for mature skin that needs stimulation. Noticeable improvement of blood circulation and metabolism. This light increases the level of natural hydration and helps to retain moisture in the skin. It also provides a calming effect, reducing redness and inflammation. LED-phototherapy effectively tightens pores, regulates sebum production and improves blood circulation. It is used for alopecia treatment. Red LED Light also passed a medical certification for the treatment of rosacea. It immediately provides visible results after the first session: the skin becomes smoother, moisturised and gets a healthy glow. It penetrates into biological tissues up to 2.5 mm, being absorbed in the epidermis. About 30% of the incident energy reach the subcutaneous fat. 

Green (496-566 nm): with a calming, harmonizing effect. Restores skin balance. It is ideal for skin which is irritated, sensitive and/or prone to erythema. Prevention of allergy desensitisation. Green LED Light improves skin immunity and its metabolism. It can be used after invasive procedures. It is also suitable for the prevention of age-related changes (for customers with fine wrinkles). It is ideal for skin with vascular changes (rosacea). This light provides skin cells with the energy which stimulates and activates the reparative function.

Blue (421-495 nm): has anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing properties. It is ideal for oily, inflamed and irritated skin. The Blue LED Light has very powerful antibacterial properties to treat acne and problem-prone skin. Exposure to the Blue LED Light is particularly effective for the treatment of acne, as it combats the propionic bacterium and is an effective alternative for those customers who do not respond to other types of acne treatment or antibiotics therapy, and especially for teenage or darker skin tones. Treatment of acne with the Blue LED Light is also excellent to prevent the outbreak of rashes and bacterial skin infections in the future. Blue LED Light provides all the antibacterial benefits of sunlight, but without any harmful and damaging UV-rays.

Yellow (567-589 nm): stimulates lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. It is used to care for oily, combination, coarse-pored and sensitive skin. It has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-fungal functions. It improves facial complexion and nourishes the skin with oxygen. It is ideal for skin prone to swelling, oedema and dark circles in the orbital zone. Yellow LED Light is used to treat lymphatic stasis and oxygen deficiency. It has an anti-stress effect on the skin.

Blue (470 nm): is used when caring for hypersensitive, dry skin. It softens, moisturizes, calms and slows down premature aging by providing a therapeutic effect upon it. It is good for fading highly dehydrated skin. It provides long-term moisture retention in the skin and stimulates collagen synthesis. It is ideal for the scaling-prone skin. Could also be used for relaxation purposes.

White (510-810 nm): anti-stress and strengthening effect. White LED Light has a strong detoxifying effect. It is safe for clients with impaired thyroid function, and is useful in any cosmetic procedure, since it enhances the procedure’s effect and produces a positive result. It has a soothing and toning effect, and is a good conductor.

The longer the wavelength, the deeper the penetration of the light.

Results and Safety

The photodynamic therapy method produces visible results in a short period of time. Phototherapy instantly revitalises tired and dull skin. Even after the first treatment, the skin becomes noticeably moisturised, smooth and radiant. Reddening and skin irritation are noticeably reduced.  A complete course of corrective procedures provides significant and extended results of improved appearance and healthy skin. There is no heat exposure in the LED-phototherapy since it uses just the light spectrum, which does not contain harmful ultraviolet and infrared rays, and, therefore, cannot cause any damage to the skin tissue.

The safety of this method has been proven by multiple clinical studies for all skin types, including the most sensitive ones.

LED-therapy does not cause photosensitivity, thus it is safe at any time of the year and can be performed before and after sun exposure.

This method excludes any risks of irritation or side effects, which are characteristic for more invasive procedures.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is safe, effective and simple.

What does a LED light therapy session look like?
A LED lamp is placed a few centimetres from the face or the treatment zone. The skin should be well-cleaned; no make-up is allowed. The duration of the session, its intensity and the light colour depend on the chosen therapy format. The procedure is absolutely painless.
Only the feeling of warmth is present in the perimeter of the treatment zone.
Eyes should be protected during the session. 

Duration of the first session::
- from 20 to 30 minutes when it is used for care treatments;
- 45 minutes with only a LED-mask.

We recommend 1-2 sessions per week during 4 - 6 weeks, then one session per month during 4 months. This frequency is by all means suggestive and can vary depending on the therapeutic needs. The first results are visible after 1-3 sessions. Skin changes gradually, and the process takes several months after the treatment, while collagen is being formed.
THE TOTAL OF 8 PROCEDURES TWICE A WEEK WILL IMPROVE ANY SKIN PROCESSES BY 72% - FROM REJUVENATION AND ACNE FIGHTING TO REHABILITATION AFTER RESURFACING AND PLASTIC SURGERY.

 

Deincrustation, or galvanic face cleansing

This is a method of deep skin cleansing with the use of weak direct current.

The method allows easy removal of comedones – buildups resulting from pore clogging with a mixture of skin oil, dead cells and microorganisms. There are open and closed comedones. Open comedones are blackheads, which have contact with the environment, while closed comedones are deep-seated whiteheads without contact with the environment.

Comedones not only look bad but, after a certain period of time, start getting inflamed, since skin oil and dead cells are perfect media for microorganism existence and reproduction. This results in ugly pimples, which, depending on the process intensiveness, can leave scars. Therefore, comedones have to be removed promptly, and deincrustation is a very good method for the purpose.

The treatment is suitable even for sensitive skin. Depending on the skin type the cosmetologist chooses optimal deincrustation schedule for each individual. The result is visible after the first treatment, and regular treatments allow forgetting about problem skin for good.

The cost of the procedure:

  • 15.-

Vacuum face cleansing

Vacuum face cleansing is machine cleansing by a vacuum therapy device. Negative pressure in the vacuum fitting increases blood flow and skin blood circulation, opens the pores and relieves them of impurities (dead cells, excess skin oil, comedones, etc.).

In addition, the treatment provides good lymphatic and toning effect, normalizes oil gland functioning and improves complexion.

The cost of the procedure:

  • 90 min.150.-

Ultrasound therapy

  • Ultrasound peeling of varying complexity and moistening: the procedure helps remove dead skin cells and deeply hydrate skin which looks healthy and fresh after this treatment.
  • Lifting regeneration: Effective procedure aimed at local metabolism restoration. It helps renew and nourish cells via blood circulation, shape the face and tone up muscles.
  • Nevus of pigment spots: This procedure helps clarify skin areas which have changed in color (age pigment spots or pigmentation caused by overexposure of sun rays).
  • Ultrasound cleansing evens skin surface, cleans the pores, which results in the fact that the renewed skin starts “breathing” and becomes smooth and glowing.

The cost of the procedure:

  • 90 min.150.-
