What Skin Concerns Can be Resurfaced With the Alma Hybrid Laser?


Age, hormones, environmental exposure, and lifestyle choices can wear and tear at the skin, aging your appearance and dulling your complexion. At Sereno Santé, our team of specialists provides patients with uniquely tailored cosmetic options to help them attain beautiful, glowing skin. Dr. Maia Chakerian works with patients throughout San Jose, CA to help them achieve glowing complexions utilizing HyGrid laser skin resurfacing treatments by Alma Hybrid.

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment that uses precision laser technology to peel away dead or damaged skin cells layer by layer while stimulating collagen production and stemming new skin development. Laser technology can be both ablative (invasive) and (non-ablative), depending on what skin goals each patient would like to accomplish. At Sereno Santé, Dr. Chakerian uses HyGrid by Alma Hybrid to provide patients with both laser options simultaneously.

HyGrid by Alma Hybrid

HyGrid by Alma Hybrid is a skin rejuvenation technology that uses a blend of CO2 ablative and non-ablative lasers in a single applicator to achieve an ideal complexion. HyGrid can uniquely tailor each treatment by altering the depth of the laser’s penetration to treat a wide variety of skin conditions. The laser treatment takes around 20 minutes.

What skin concerns can be treated with Alma Hybrid laser technology?

HyGrid by Alma Hybrid can treat numerous skin conditions, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Depressions
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Burn scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven textures
  • Sun damage

Dr. Chakerian will assess your skin condition(s) and review your personal history to determine if laser skin resurfacing is the right treatment approach for you.

Can Alma Hybrid laser technology be used on any skin tone?

Due to its flexibility in laser customization, HyGrid is appropriate for any skin tone or color. If you have any concerns about your skin condition or personal history, consult Dr. Chakerian.

How is laser skin resurfacing treatment done?

Laser skin resurfacing sessions are conducted at Sereno Santé within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. The HyGrid applicator is gently passed over the skin to provide bursts of laser energy. Once your treatment session is complete, you are permitted to leave our office and resume normal daily activities.

What can I expect during recovery?

Laser skin resurfacing does not require much downtime. Many patients experience temporary redness, tenderness, and swelling at the treatment site, which subsides after several days. Crusting and shedding of the skin are normal, but patients should refrain from rubbing or picking at the flaking tissue to minimize scarring. Patients may be asked to apply specific moisturizers to the face, avoid makeup, and avoid excessive sun exposure for several days after treatment to optimize results.

How many laser skin resurfacing treatment sessions will I need?

The number of treatment sessions depends on each patient’s personal goals and Dr. Chakerian’s professional recommendations for treating unique skin conditions. Consult with Dr. Chakerian about scheduling future appointments to attain your expected outcomes.
