Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery now offers the most powerful CO2 laser in aesthetic medicine, the UltraPulse® laser, developed by Lumenis®. As a skin resurfacing treatment, UltraPulse rewinds time, helping to reverse the effects of aging and environmental factors.
The UltraPulse uses two fractional resurfacing modes, DeepFX™ | ActiveFX™. The modalities are customizable with an unmatched versatility in a range of treatments. ActiveFX improves skin texture and tone, fine lines, and sunspots. DeepFX induces skin tightening and collagen remodeling to address deep etched wrinkles and scars.
By creating microscopic thermal channels (micro thermal zones) at a customizable depth and density, the fractional laser triggers new collagen and elastin fiber production. Due to the fractional nature, skin between channels is unaffected leading to more rapid healing time compared to traditional CO2 laser resurfacing with simultaneous deep dermal remodeling. As a bonus, treatment duration is approximately one hour, and results can often be seen in as little as one session.
Skin concerns treated by the UltraPulse Laser include:
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Dark spots
- Acne scars
- Scar revision
- Upper and lower eyelid laxity
Who is a candidate?
