Living with skin imperfections can greatly affect our confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, we have skin resurfacing treatments to address your embarrassing skin imperfections. UltraPulse® CO2 is a fractional CO2 laser treatment that effectively resurfaces the skin by penetrating deep below the skin surface to renew the skin and stimulate collagen production. UltraPulse® CO2 yields better results than most other fractional lasers by offering three treatment modes, each designed to target specific aesthetic concerns.
This fractional CO2 laser works relatively similar to the process of aerating a lawn. It punches thousands of microscopic holes into the skin, which causes the skin to grow into holes, making new skin, which appears younger-looking, with fewer flaws, and thicker. Our skin loses 1% of its thickness per year, and the UltraPulse® CO2 reverses some of this thinning by stimulating new collagen growth.
Additionally, treatments with UltraPulse® CO2 can be customized to penetrate different depths through the three treatment modes, ActiveFX™, DeepFX™, and TotalFX™. ActiveFX™ targets only a small portion of the skin’s surface, making it ideal for treating fine lines and uneven skin texture. DeepFX™ targets conditions with a dermal component, making it suitable for treating wrinkles, acne scars, scarring, and saggy skin. TotalFX™ combines ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ depths to treat severe photodamage, saggy skin, wrinkles, and pigmented lesions.
