What is the UltraPulse CO2 Laser? 

The UltraPulse CO2 laser functions as an ablative laser, penetrating the skin with thousands of microscopic holes. The laser energy contributes to anti-aging effects, as it triggers collagen growth. Depending on the treatment settings, collagen growth can smooth, tighten, or plump the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. 

The UltraPulse CO2 laser can address concerns such as: 

  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Keratosis
  • Pigmentation 
  • Acne Scars
  • Surgical Scars
  • Port Wine Stains
  • Keloids 
  • Skin Tags
  • Milia
  • Moles
  • Superficial Pigmented Lesions
  • Sebaceous Hyperplasia 

Is there any downtime with the UltraPulse CO2?

During the initial days following the procedure, you can expect some side effects, such as redness, swelling, and peeling of the treated skin. These side effects are a natural part of the healing process and may last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the depth and intensity of the treatment. It’s important to follow your provider’s post-treatment care instructions.

How many treatments will I need to see results? 

 The number of CO2 Ultrapulse laser treatments required depends on the individual’s skin condition and the treatment goals. Typically, one to three sessions may be recommended for optimal results. 

Results from CO2 Ultrapulse laser treatments are often noticeable after the initial healing period, which can take 1-2 weeks. However, the full benefits, including smoother, rejuvenated skin, may become more evident over several months as collagen continues to regenerate.

Are the treatments painful? 

The level of discomfort experienced during CO2 Ultrapulse laser treatments can vary, but many individuals report a sensation similar to a stinging or mild burning. Numbing agents are often used to minimize discomfort.

How should I prepare for my treatment? 

To prepare for your appointment, it is important to adhere to the following pre-care guidelines: 

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds 2 weeks before your treatment
  • Avoid use of active ingredients such as retinoids, glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, or kojic acid
  • Avoid use of Abrasive scrubs or exfoliants for 2 weeks prior
  • Avoid cosmetic injections such as Botox, Dysport, or filler 2 weeks prior

During your initial laser consultation, your provider will guide you with detailed pre-treatment care instructions with your healthcare provider to ensure optimal results and a smooth experience.
