AlmaTED Device

Before we dive into the patient’s experience, let’s briefly explore what makes Alma TED so extraordinary. AlmaTED (Trans-Epidermal Delivery), was developed by leading medical technology company AlmaTech, is a state-of-the-art device that combines the latest advancements in medical science and technology. It utilizes a unique blend of targeted electromagnetic pulses and advanced algorithms to stimulate specific areas of the body, providing therapeutic benefits without the need for invasive procedures or medications.

Suffering from hair shedding and loss? TED is the solution for you! This advanced technology promotes natural and healthy hair growth through energy-based therapy. It targets inflammation, stimulates follicles, and improves scalp health. With gentle yet powerful pulses, AlmaTED offers effective relief from conditions like alopecia areata and temporary or permanent hair loss.
ForHair is now offering the AlmaTED Device in Atlanta and New York.

The AlmaTED Procedure

Alma TED is a painless procedure that opens the skin channels using ultrasonic energy. The device subsequently drives a solution containing peptides, growth factors, and nutrients about 4 mm deep into the scalp. We are also using the TED to deliver growth factors from CRP and dutasteride 0.5% with minoxidil and bimatoprost (a prostaglandin F analog). The ultrasonic energy causes cavitation of the collagen fibres that are large enough for molecules the size of growth factors to penetrate the skin surface without anesthesia or discomfort. In addition, ultrasonic energy produces a sound the patient hears while we treat the scalp.

We treat the scalp with Dutasteride, minoxidil, and bimatoprost combination once every three months, but we can do the treatment monthly. 

How Alma TED works

What should I expect during the Alma TED procedure?

Experience a needle and pain-free hair loss treatment! Alma TED is a simple, non-invasive treatment that lasts 20-30 minutes. During your consultation, the practitioner will assess your scalp and customize the treatment to your needs. Positive changes can be seen within a month after the first session, but optimal results may require additional treatments.

Dr. Cole and his team will thoroughly evaluate your scalp and hair loss during consultations. They will assess hair density, calibre, and overall scalp health to create a personalized treatment plan. Improvement can be expected within a month of treatment, but additional therapy in combo with topical hair growth treatments may be needed for the best outcome. Every case is different, so why not try Alma TED and see its potential for you?

How does Alma TED compare to PRP or other non-surgical/non-invasive Regenerative Treatments?

TED offers a needle-free and pain-free experience, setting it apart from PRP, which requires blood drawing and needle injections into the scalp. The differences between Alma TED and PRP, as well as other non-surgical/non-invasive regenerative treatments, are as follows:

1. Treatment Approach: Alma TED creates microchannels to enhance topical solution delivery, while PRP involves injecting concentrated blood components.

2. Regenerative Potential: PRP contains growth factors and platelets for tissue repair, collagen production, and hair growth. Alma TED improves the absorption of regenerative treatments.

3. Invasiveness: Both Alma TED and PRP are non-surgical and non-invasive. TED uses a handheld device for microchannel creation, while PRP injections involve needles, which are generally well-tolerated.

4. Applications: TED treats skin rejuvenation, scar reduction, and drug delivery, while PRP has broader applications, such as hair restoration, joint pain management, and wound healing.

Remember, treatment effectiveness varies, so consult Dr. Cole and his team to determine the best option for your needs.

Who is a Good Candidate for Treatment with Alma TED?

Hair loss is a common problem that affects many people around the world. If you are someone who is experiencing thinning, shedding or hair loss, you might want to consider treatment with Alma TED. The TED treatment is appropriate for anyone experiencing hair loss with a male or women pattern baldness, receding hairline, health-related hair loss, or stress-induced shedding, our Alma TED system can help. And the best part? It’s not just for the scalp – eyebrows and beard areas can receive the benefits too.

Is the Alma TED Treatment Painful?

No, it’s quite comfortable and it can help some patients relax. You will likely experience a warm sensation from the device, vibrations and ringing noises throughout the treatment, but there’s no discomfort. The procedure does not require any needles. No pain in the head.

What Results Can You Expect with Alma TED Treatment?

You can experience noticeable improvements after just one TED treatment, but for best results, it is recommended to have a series of at least three TED treatments spaced one month apart. The use of other topical hair growth treatments may be suggested in between sessions.

Dr. Cole’s Own experience and results with the AlmaTED

In 2022, Dr. Cole started to notice his hair thinning. But he didn’t give up on having his luscious locks back. He underwent the revolutionary ALMA TED procedure, which uses protein nutrition and Dutasteride to promote hair growth. By December, he had made significant progress in regaining his lost hair.

Alma TED treatment – What’s new?

Alma also offers a proprietary product in collaboration with a leading pharmaceutical company to enhance hair strength and shine. This treatment involves three office visits spaced one month apart, with some patients reporting results within two weeks. Results may vary, and it’s important to note that no pharmaceutical can restore hair once it reaches complete baldness. Active and existing hair is necessary to improve existing hair’s length and quality.

Dr. Cole is working with a trusted pharmacy to develop new formulations for hair growth. These include injectable forms of sterile Dutasteride and finasteride. The goal is to deliver these injections using Alma TED, which has the potential to enhance the quality of existing hair. It is recommended to repeat these injectable treatments every three months.

Additionally, Alma TED can facilitate the delivery of local anesthesia during hair transplant surgery. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and Cytokine-rich plasma (CRP) injections can be uncomfortable, so local anesthesia is commonly used to alleviate discomfort. The efficacy of delivering PRP through Alma TED needs verification, as platelets are relatively large and require collagen fibre separation using ultrasound and air pressure. However, CRP, which consists entirely of growth factors and is less than 3 micrometres in size, can be delivered with Alma TED, eliminating the need for needles in PRP procedures.

What are the potential side effects of Alma TED hair treatment?

Alma TED, as a delivery method, does not have specific side effects on its own. However, the hair treatment used in conjunction with Alma TED may have associated side effects. Here are potential side effects of hair treatments used with Alma TED:

1. Scalp Irritation: Some individuals may experience scalp irritation, redness, itching, or a burning sensation due to products or the treatment itself.

2. Allergic Reactions: Allergic reactions to hair growth products are rare but possible. Symptoms may include rash, hives, swelling, or difficulty breathing. Seek immediate medical attention if signs of an allergic reaction occur.

3. Dryness or Flaking: Certain hair treatments can cause temporary dryness or flaking of the scalp, leading to discomfort.

4. Hair Texture Changes: Hair treatments might temporarily change hair texture, causing dryness, brittleness, or increased breakage. These effects are typically reversible.

5. Temporary Shedding: Starting some hair growth treatments can result in temporary shedding of existing hair. This is a normal part of the hair growth cycle, followed by healthier hair regrowth.

Consult us before undergoing any hair treatment, including those utilizing Alma TED. We can provide personalized advice, assess your situation, and discuss potential side effects and risks associated with the specific treatment.

How much does Alma TED hair treatment cost?

A single session of Alma Ted is $1,475. We do offer annual membership plans for patients considering having the Ted treatment once per month for a year. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the clinic to discover the Ted membership.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

The most common treatment for patients is 3 sessions. Followed by a follow-up session eight months later. Our specialists will examine and develop an effective treatment plan for the areas you want to be treated and plan for the best possible outcomes.
