How does Alma TED work?
Alma TED works by using acoustic sound waves and air pressure to drive active components deeper in the skin for higher compound absorption. The acoustic sound waves creates gaseous bubbles within the stratum corneum that expand the lipid bilayer allowing for medications to absorb. Air pressure creates a push and pull effect that drives the medications even further.
So instead of creating channels with needles or laser energy, we are now creating temporary pain free channels that allow the medications to penetrate the skin. This is a revolutionary process.

What Conditions does Alma TED treat?
Alma TED treats a variety of non scarring alopecia. Its treats male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness, otherwise known as androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic Alopecia affects males as early in their 20s and affects females later in life secondary to hormones or stress. This is secondary to higher levels of 5-alpha-reductase which converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone causing hair follicles to become weak and fall.

Alma TED can be used throughout the scalp. We can also use it on the eyebrows or beard area.
