Fall In Love With Your Skin Again With Alma Hybrid™ Laser Treatments
For many men and women, life rushes by, and years of experience manifest in unhealthy ways on our skin. Genetics, age, hormones, and environmental elements wear away at the complexion, causing us to appear older and tired. At Sereno Santé, we offer innovative skin rejuvenation technology to help individuals reclaim their skin and achieve glowing complexions. Dr. Maia Chakerian works with patients throughout San Jose, CA to help them achieve younger-looking skin utilizing the Alma Hybrid laser.
What is the Alma Hybrid laser?
The Alma Hybrid laser is a cosmetic technology system used to nonsurgically correct anomalies of the skin. The system applies a combination of CO2 ablative and non-ablative lasers, which can be customized to achieve:
The lasers can be adjusted for depth of penetration to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which are naturally occurring proteins in the skin responsible for stimulating new skin cell growth and skin firmness, respectively. At Sereno Santé, Dr. Chakerian develops a highly tailored skin rejuvenation plan to help meet your personal cosmetic goals.
What treatment settings does the Alma Hybrid laser offer?
Since the laser settings can be adjusted for both skin tightening and skin resurfacing, this allows for the treatment of a multitude of skin conditions, including:
- Sagging or loose skin
- Fine lines
- Uneven or textured skin
- Sun spots
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Dimpled skin
- Enlarged pores
Dr. Chakerian will assess the condition of your skin and your medical history to determine if the Alma Hybrid laser is the appropriate treatment option for you. Individuals with certain medical and dermatological conditions may not qualify or may be better suited for alternative skin rejuvenation treatments.

The Alma Hybrid laser can be applied to almost any area of the body and can be used on almost any skin tone or color. Consult with Dr. Chakerian if you have any questions or concerns about your specific skin condition and if the Alma Hybrid laser is right for you.
How the treatment process works
All skin rejuvenation treatments by the Alma Hybrid laser are conducted at Sereno Santé within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. The laser is adjusted for your skin condition and simply waved over each treatment site. While many patients report no discomfort during treatment, CO2 ablative lasers may cause a slight prickly sensation to the skin. Patients may request a topical anesthetic for increased comfort. Once your treatment is complete, you may leave our clinic to resume normal daily activities.
Is there any downtime?
While there is no required downtime after skin rejuvenation treatments by the Alma Hybrid laser, patients will be expected to follow a skin care protocol at home to optimize healing. Dr. Chakerian may ask you to adhere to the following recovery tips for the first week or so:
- Avoid excessive sun exposure
- Apply recommended moisturizers
- Avoid razors or hair removal techniques at each treatment site
- Avoid picking at or rubbing the skin
- Avoid dramatic temperature changes to the skin
Patients should expect temporary redness and tenderness at each treatment site, which will subside within a few days. Once the damaged skin peels away, new tissue will surface to reveal a smoother, more vibrant complexion.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatments needed will depend on your personal goals and Dr. Chakerian’s professional recommendations. Each treatment session will need to be spaced several weeks apart to allow the skin to heal properly. Consult with Dr. Chakerian to discuss what timeline to expect for your customized treatment plan.
