Alma Laser System At Shiraz Cosmetic and Medical Clinic

Alma Laser System Overview

Dr Roozi Talab is very excited to add the new Alma Family of laser services for his patients. As a long time provider of aesthetic laser procedures, he is pleased to find a system that not only meets his patients’ needs, they exceed them as well. Alma Lasers offers a solution to correct the demands of ageing skin and each treatment can be customised to meet your specific needs. Alma Lasers are effective when used to treat areas such as your face, neck, chest, hands, or anywhere your skin has been affected by age or sun-damage.

Harmony XL Pro -Pixel Erbium Skin Resurfacing Rejuvenation , Tightening and Contouring

As we age, our collagen production slows down which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.
Alma uses near-infrared technology to elevate the tissue temperature, causing deep dermal heating. This causes heat-induced collagen shrinkage, micro thermal injury, dermal regeneration, wound healing and remodelling.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most sophisticated technologies available to us – we use a fractional system. It removes very small areas of the top layers of skin, helping to repair areas of scarring. Shiraz Cosmetic and Medical Clinic, we use the Harmony XL Pro iPixel, manufactured by Alma Lasers. During the procedure, we’ll apply a local anaesthetic and a numbing cream to the treatment area to keep you comfortable. Using the device, the practitioner will then deliver very targeted pulses of light to the treatment area, removing very thin layers of damaged skin cells in pixel-sized zones, whilst leaving untouched skin around each ‘dot’ of damage which will stimulate the natural healing process.

The number of treatments required differs from patient to patient, but typically, treatment courses are 3-6 sessions long, with 4-6 weeks in-between each treatment. The final result could then last for several years.
You might also experience some discomfort and soreness but your practitioner will discuss your aftercare regime with you following treatment.

Dr. Roozi Talab is a leading pioneer of non-invasive, non-ablative, and no downtime laser rejuvenation of the skin. After your very first Pixel Erbium Resurfacing Treatment, you will feel the difference in your skin, as it gradually becomes softer, smoother, and more youthful. Fine lines around your eyes will noticeably fade and so will uneven colouring and the brown spots caused by ageing and sun exposure. After several treatments, your friends and family will marvel at how healthy your skin looks and the results are so discreet that only you and Dr. Roozi Talab will know that you have had a laser surgical procedure.

Anyone whose skin is showing signs of ageing is a candidate for the Pixel Erbium Resurfacing procedure. During your consultation with Dr. Roozi Talab, you will learn about the treatment and what to expect. Your face is an important part of who you are so if you want dramatic results in little time, schedule your consultation today at Shiraz Cosmetic and Medical clinic.

Laser Hair Removal

Harmony XL PRO with SHR Overview

Super Hair Removal

SHR (Super Hair Removal) technology has earned global recognition and is used in top level clinics worldwide. It works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles, preventing them from growing back, while protecting the surrounding skin. The hair follicles are not exposed to a single pulse of high energy, which can injure the skin, but rather receive multiple, short, low energy pulses until enough heat energy is generated to damage the hair follicle up, with virtually no pain.

Permanent reduction in hair regrowth defined as a long term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing when measured at 6, 9 and 12 months after the completion of a treatment regime.

Shiraz Cosmetic and Medical clinic offers the finest in laser hair removal for men and women with their Harmony XL Pro SHR system. The next-generation of laser hair removal, this method is an effective and permanent hair reduction solution that is simple and easy. It takes the cutting-edge medical laser technology and combines it with the comfort and convenience of one of the most comfortable laser hair removal options available.

The Harmony XL Pro SHR laser treatment is an incredible breakthrough in medical hair removal. If too much-unwanted hair is bothering you. The Harmony XL Pro SHR system is simply laser hair removal at its finest.
After your Harmony® XL pro SHR treatment, you can forget about daily shaving, tedious plucking, and expensive waxing.

Tattoo Removal (Laser)

Laser tattoo removal is a relatively simple procedure that can produce some astonishing results, depending on the type of tattoo (amateur or professional) and the ink colour or colours within the tattoo. The treatment works very simply: lasers remove tattoos by breaking down the pigment within the tattoo, lightening the skin and minimising the appearance of the tattoo. With repeated treatments, tattoos can vanish completely. Some tattoos are easier to remove than others.

At Shiraz Cosmetic and Medical clinic we offer offer laser tattoo removal treatments with the amazing technology of the Harmony XL Pro In the past, tattoo removal was painful and gave inconsistent results. The Alma Q-Switched Laser with “Next Generation” technology now provides a safe and effective way of removing tattoos leaving natural looking skin.

What Happens During Treatment?

During laser tattoo removal, skin will be cleansed and a local anaesthetic cream may be applied. You’ll be given goggles to wear. The practitioner will then pass the laser over the surface of the tattoo. Treatment can vary depending on the size of the tattoo. After treatment, patients are advised to take care of the skin, using a high factor SPF sunscreen whilst the skin is still sensitive as well as a tissue repair cream. Patients will experience a mild pricking sensation during treatment, but we can use local anaesthetic creams to minimise discomfort. Over the counter pain medication will minimise any pain following treatment.

Commonly Asked Questions about Tattoo Removal

Q: HOW DOES THE Q-SWITCHED LASER WORK?

A: The laser emits a pulse of light that is preferentially absorbed into certain colours of ink. The light enters the skin at a speed that is too fast to heat the tissues (billionths of a second), instead, it produces a ‘shockwave’ effect and breaks up the ink particles into smaller pieces, the body then recognizes these particles as something that shouldn’t be there and attacks it. The particles are then removed naturally via the body’s own elimination system.

Q: WHAT KIND OF TATTOOS CAN BE TREATED?

A: We can treat professional and amateur tattoos, traumatic tattoos resulting from accidents, and cosmetic tattoos.

Q: CAN THE Q-SWITCH LASER REMOVE ALL COLOR TATTOOS?

A: The Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser works best on: Blue, Black, Blue/Black, Red, Green, and Yellow.

Q: HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

A: The number of treatments may vary depending upon the size, color and location of the tattoo. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan.

Q: WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?

A: Pain tolerance varies from person to person. Many describe the treatment as a rubberband snap to skin. Although no anesthesia is required, topical anesthetic can be requested for sensitive areas.

Q: WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?

A: We will give you specific post-treatment instructions. While your skin may be slightly red immediately after the procedure, this should resolve within a few hours. You can resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment.

Acne and Acne Scars:

Acne Treatment

Although acne is a medical disease, many patients search for alternative treatments. Acne is caused by impaired skin exfoliation, overproduction of oil (sebum), and bacterial infection of the follicle (inflammatory acne). Combining several different lasers with LED Light therapy, Microneedling, Chemical Peel, Clearskin Facial, microdermabrasion and Medical Grade Skincare Products, our patients have reported significant improvement in their acne, although individual results may vary. A series of treatments is recommended.

At our clinic, we will asses your troubled areas and formulate a customised plan for each and every patient. We utilise microdermabrasion, several different wavelengths of lasers and lights, and peeling solutions, combined together at each treatment to control your acne and prevent scarring.

The Harmony XL Pro iPixel laser applicator gives the physician unparalleled control to treat each scar with individual precision. The laser pulses can be repeated and ‘stacked’ to penetrate even deeper in order to microscopically destroy the extent of the scarred tissue. The practitioner can also choose to use short, or long pulses, depending on the scar depth.

In addition to microscopic ablation of the scar itself, the laser also heats up the underlying tissue to boost collagen production and increase blood flow, which speeds up the healing process. New skin cells fill the scarred area with healthy, fresh skin while smoothing out the surface. In addition to reducing and eliminating the look of the scar itself, the boost in collagen also helps to tighten the undamaged skin around the scar, so you can enjoy the added perk of skin resurfacing at the same time.

Pigment Clearing Laser/ Rejuvenation

Does your skin reflect all of the time you have spent in the sun? Are you concern about unwanted dark spots such as freckles, birthmarks or other pigmented lesions. At Shiraz Cosmetic and medical Clinic we are proud to provide treatments for these types of problems with the use of the Harmony XR Pro DYE-VL Technology. The DYE-VL Pro effectively treats Sun damaged skin, Age spot, Brown spots and any dark spot on your skin. The Pulsed Dye Laser is a device that produces a bright light that is absorbed by pigments in the skin, break them down to small particles. After few days they shed off your skin.

HOW DOES HYPER PIGMENTATION OCCUR?

Sun spots, freckles, age spots, and hyper pigmentation occur when melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, collects in one area. The distribution of melanin loses effectiveness as we age, leading to the risk for more age and sun spots. Melasma is a unique skin problem that results in dark, wide patches of facial discoloration. All of these skin conditions have a wide variety of causes, ranging from sun exposure, hormones, genetics, and age to inflammation or injuries. Luckily, one system can reverse them all.


















1- The Harmony XL Pro

DyeSR Laser specifically targets melanin collection spots under the surface with a narrow band spectrum of light energy. This incredibly narrow wave band is uniform and consistent with specialised light pulses for unparalleled accuracy. Plus, the narrow band eliminates the wavelengths that have adverse effects on skin, so it’s completely safe for all skin types and it works on sensitive skin areas, including the body, face, and neck. With a hand-piece instrument, the laser technician has total control over the treatment outcome with additional specialised treatment options to optimise results.

Treatment benefits

  • Remove pigmentation & melasma
  • Improve fine lines
  • Ideal for sun damage & photodamage
  • Suitable for face, neck, décolleté & hands
  • Remove sun spots in just a few sessions
  • Lunch time procedure

2- IPL Treatment

How does the pigment clearing laser work?

Pigment clearing light-based, laser and IPL treatments remove the appearance of spots and skin hyperpigmentation by targeting the melanin in the darkened area and dispersing it. The tiny fragments of the pigment are then cleared by the lymphatic system through a natural process. This results in the clearing of all of the pigmentation layers which in turn reveals even-toned, unblemished skin.

What does the treatment involve?

Prior to any laser treatment a consultation will need to be carried out to ensure suitability of treatment. On the day of treatment no numbing or anaesthetic is required so your laser specialist will apply a cooling gel on the area. The laser will then be moved over the skin targeting all areas.
This powerful and effective laser takes just 30 minutes, and does not either require anaesthetic or, unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, burn the skin’s outer layer. As a result, redness and downtime are minimised

-How many treatments do I need?

We usually require between 3 – 6 treatments at 4 weekly intervals. However results vary from person to person and number of treatments required will depend on your own individual skin needs

What should I expect after treatment?

Dark spots and hyper pigmentation will get darker initially for up to 7 days and then they will lighten up or vanish altogether.

What are the aftercare requirements ?

  • Immediately after treatment there may be redness and swelling at the treatment area.
  • The application of a cool pack during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort
  • The application of aloevera gel can continue at home
  • Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. Sunscreen SPF30 is a MUST
  • Immediately after treatment there may be redness and swelling at the treatment area.
  • The application of a cool pack during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort
  • The application of aloe vera gel can continue at home
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin any areas of pigmentation this may darken
  • Avoid hot baths, exercise and heat treatments and treat the skin gently, as if you had sunburn, for the first 48 hours
