How it works:
The UltraPulse® CO2 Laser produces a beam of infrared light, which is absorbed by the water in our skin. Once heated, these water molecules cause tissue ablation, which promotes the formation of collagen and elastin and speeds up the natural cell regeneration cycle. Old, damaged cells are replaced with new, healthy skin, resulting in a dramatic improvement of deep wrinkles, skin texture and tone, scarring, and pigmentation. With multiple treatment settings and depths, this powerful ablative fractionated CO2 laser can be tailored to match your specific skin concerns, with treatments ranging between 20 minutes to 1 hour. The skin is dramatically rejuvenated as years of damage are reversed.

UltraPulse® Encore CO2 Laser Frequently Asked Questions
As the handpiece moves across your skin, you may feel a stinging or snapping sensation. Any discomfort can normally be managed with a combination of topical, local and oral analgesics.
The UltraPulse® CO2 Laser can produce dramatic results in a single treatment session, but a series of treatments may be recommended to achieve optimal outcomes, depending on the condition being treated. The fractionated mode of this laser is most popular with skin resurfacing due to much quicker healing times and safety; a series of treatments will normally be required to achieve optimal results.
The results of your UltraPulse® CO2 Laser treatment will include a smoothing of scars, softening of wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, refined pores and firmer skin. Pigmentation is also evened, improving the very health of your skin.
The recovery time varies significantly depending on your individual concerns and treatment plan. Some peeling and crusting can be expected in the days immediately post-treatment, followed by redness, which should continue to fade over the next several weeks. The underlying skin will be slightly sensitive to sun and should be thoroughly protected afterwards.
Being sun-safe is very important to preserve the results of your UltraPulse® CO2 Laser treatment. We recommend avoiding the sun at peak times and wearing protective clothing. Applying an antioxidant serum in combination with a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, rain or shine, are also key steps to ensure your results are maintained.
