Featured Image


Alma TED is an exciting procedure that uses acoustic sound waves and air pressure to drive medications past our protective layer of skin down to the dermis that provides Needle Free and Pain Free Hair Restoration.  TED stands for transepidermal drug delivery. Our TED+ hair formula contains ingredients that support optimal hair and scalp health and follicular strength.

Great News for those who live in Orange County! Our skilled team at Luminary MD in Mission Viejo, CA can restore your hair in quick 25 minute treatments.  Say goodbye to NEEDLE PHOBIA , say hello to NEEDLE FREE & PAINLESS Hair Restoration!! No topical anesthetic or post treatment shedding!


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 is the typical patient feedback after using Alma TED?

Patients are noticing results after 1 treatment but the timeline is as follows:

??2 weeks- less shedding during daily routine. Early signs of growth

??1 month- new hairs begins to sprout

??2 months- hair has more volume giving it height

??3 months- bald spots begin to fill, less scalp showing.


Patients typically require 3 treatments. 

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. 


Where can Alma TED be used?

Alma TED can be used throughout the scalp. We can also use it on the eyebrows or beard area. We can also combine Alma TED with our other laser the ALMA Hybrid for even better results.
