Q: Why is UltraPulse CO2 laser the Gold Standard?

A: The Ultrapulse CO2 Laser delivers thousands of tiny laser pulses in a pattern over the skin. Each pulse heats a column of tissue eliminating pigment discolorations at the surface and creating a zone of heating deep in the tissue. Unique to the UltraPulse Encore, these zones of heating shrink collagen and tighten the skin immediately. The Co2 laser offers the benefits of heating deeper layers of skin tissue, thereby stimulating collagen remodeling, tightening the skin further. Patients can select from a range of treatments depending on the needs of your skin and lifestyle.  The UltraPulse CO2 laser has been on the market as the gold standard for skin resurfacing for over a decade.  Now, the Encore deliveres UltraPulse CO2 technology in a fractionated mode to deliver superior results with minimal down time.

Q: What is ActiveFX Fractional laser resurfacing?

A: ActiveFX is a fractional laser procedure performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities, and tighten the skin. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time. With fractional laser treatment only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. ActiveFX can be performed in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied for 30-40 mins, most patients feel warmth similar to sunburn. Photodamaged skin will begin to flake in 2 days and in 3-5 days return to normal.

Q: How is DeepFX different?

A: DeepFX has greater treatment depths form 5-2000 microns. Heavier rhytids can affect the deeper dermal tissues. Treatments with DeepFX alone (either one or two treatments) can provide for better skin tightening and is safe and effective for wrinkle reduction. Deeper treatment increases downtime up to 5-7 days with some swelling lasting 3-4 days post procedure.  Immediate results are seen within 10 days, however final treatment effects are seen in 3-6 months as the skin repairs internally and produces layers of new collagen.
