Lumenis Fractional CO2 Ultrapulse Laser

 

Is Lumenis UltraPulse right for me?

As you age, the youthful appearance of your skin may give way to loss of elasticity, discoloration, sun spots, wrinkles, and enlargement of pores. Laser treatments can treat these skin conditions and improve your appearance.


If you would like to improve the surface and appearance of your skin, reduce fine lines, surface irregularities such as scarring, uneven pigmentation and sun damage, then skin resurfacing may be right for you. The laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The healing process is then stimulated, and fresh skin is revealed.

How Lumenis UltraPulse Works

CO2 lasers have been the gold standard in skin resurfacing for many years
New fractional CO2 technology from Lumenis achieves results like the traditional CO2 lasers of the past, but with the added benefit of minimal downtime. This is a huge advantage over other resurfacing lasers on the market. Dr. Concannon is aware that his patients are active and busy with their family, career, and other activities. The minimal downtime with this laser has made it extremely popular.


Many other laser systems are not aggressive enough to give you much of a benefit. The UltraPulse Laser from Lumenis results in remarkable, long lasting results and in most cases this can be accomplished in just one treatment. Read about our Active FX treatment, your single treatment solution for wrinkled, sun damaged skin.


Ablative fractional resurfacing with the Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore is a major advance in treatment of skin aging. The Encore uses a CO2 laser in three different modes to produce precise resurfacing of the skin resulting in smoother skin with a more even color. The CO2 laser has been the gold standard in giving excellent results with skin resurfacing for years. Older versions were limited by extensive healing and downtime. By using the latest fractional resurfacing techniques, the skin heals much quicker resulting in an excellent safety profile.
