UltraPulse® can penetrate deeper than any aesthetic ablative CO2 laser. Combined with great versatility, this makes UltraPulse® perfect for both everyday procedures and the thick and complex lesions. The UltraPulse® CO2 laser works by delivering powerful laser energy into specific areas. This stimulates the growth of new skin and new, healthy collagen. When this occurs, it helps even and smooth imperfections, tightens skin and reduces wrinkles as your skin heals.
UltraPulse® utilizes several fractional treatment modalities to match the existing needs of the patient. SCAAR FX™ technology enables treatment of a variety of severe skin lesions, such as surgical and acne scars. Utilizing SCAARFX™ technology, the UltraPulse® CO2 laser removes damaged, scarred collagen to allow for the growth of brand new collagen. During this treatment, the appearance of scars is improved. But additionally, SCAARFX™ can alleviate the pain and itching often experienced by patients with severe scars.
Since the UltraPulse® CO2 is a fractional laser, it penetrates the skin in smaller pinpoints instead of more broad bands. This allows for a quicker recovery time and a more comfortable procedure when compared to more traditional ablative lasers.
Patients can expect to see a noticeable difference in wrinkle reduction, skin texture, pore size and sun damage once healing is complete. However, results continue to improve over time as new collagen is formed.
