Alma: Accent XL, Harmony XL, Pixel C02 > Alma Harmony Light

Does anyone know if a Alma Harmony Light System is any good?

How about those who have Harmony lite or an XL? Looking forward to your feedback.

Harmony XL has got this new head AFT light system that is really good for hair removal especially but for every other condition you have to buy a different head that I find rather expensive and not practical

Harmony XL is a jack of all trades. I love the system but am sorry to say that not all the heads are worth investing in. The qs nd:yag is hopeless. I now use the stand alone helios II for tattoo and facial rejuvenation. However SHR and pixel are the very good. Most of the attachments are low powered

I am in total agreement with you about that qs nd yag head.

As a Rep for the company, I have hundreds of local references who love the Harmony. You do not need to purchase a head for every condition. We do make 18 hand pieces for the device which makes if infinitely expandable. Most folks configure with 3 - 5 hp's.

As to the "jack of all trades" issue, that's not so accurate. In ALL laser systems you have basic components like a CPU board, heat exchanged, cooling pump etc. The "Box or system" is simply the engine for the hand pieces which have their own individual software. In Chicago, the most popular hp's are the AFT (420/540/570/650) for PhotoRejuvenation & LHR, as well as the iPixel 2940 erbium and the QS Yag for PainFree ClearLift and Tattoos, and of course skin tightening,

i appreciate your devotion to your products. I am an avid user of Alma systems. I have Soprano accord, Soprano XL, Accent, Harmony XL with 6 heads. But I also use other systems in my practice. Here in India, AFT is not used much. There is a big demand for LHR and as I mentioned SHR hand piece is very good and fast and light weight. However, the cost of using this for large body areas is very high as it has milted shots. So I use it for small areas only. I use more of Soprano for LHR which is a work horse for hair removal. Coming to QS hand piece it is just as good as a chinese laser for tattoos which is very cheap. You can't do anything else with that. No facial toning or rejuvenation. I use fractional QS NdYAG for that and am very happy. So I would tell Cox that you need to first make sure what is your main concern you want to address and than invest in the technology.

Agree on volume HR issue with Harmony but it is a single hand piece at approx. $6900 versus an entire system for 10x that. Have you tried Soprano ICE? Also, we have TONS of references & happy campers using the NEW Q-Switched 1064 in a Fractional Mode for Non Ablative resurfacing! @ Dr Goel, what spot sizes do u have on your q-switch, as that will tell me if you have new style or old. New is needed for a number of reasons for Fractional QS.

I have been using the Harmony system for 5 years, with very good results with AFT 540 and 570, complemented with 532 qs head for lentigo. I also use the 420 for acne with fair (but unpredictable) results. There is also a UV head for repigmentation that does not repigmentate. The pixel 2094 head has, in my opinion, a too mild effect even set at top power.

Lastly, I must confess that I have never been able to complete a single tattoo removal treatment with the 1064 qs head, the lesion not responding after a couple of sessions with the device at top power, and having to shift the patients to our 755 qs system (Alex Lazr).
