What is LaseMD Ultra?
LaseMD Ultra is a fractional non-ablative laser that treats acne and acne scarring, sun damage and melasma, fine lines, and uneven skin tone for glowing rejuvenated skin! With a broad range of treatment settings, LaseMD Ultra is a fully customizable resurfacing laser used to treat various skin concerns and is perfect for all skin types. The Lutronic LaseMD Ultra is now available at The Skin Center in Pittsburgh, PA!
LaseMD Ultra can be used to treat any area of the body with sun damage, acne scarring, and fine lines. The most common area to be treated is the face, followed by the neck, chest, arms, shoulders and hands. LaseMD Ultra stimulates natural collagen production by delivering just the right amount of energy and heat to the skin's proper depths without injuring its surface. The laser creates microscopic channels within the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process producing new collagen. As cell turnover occurs and new collagen is produced, the skin becomes smoother, brighter, and clearer! LaseMD Ultra offers various laser settings, from gentle to aggressive, to provide optimal results for all skin types.
Benefits of the LaseMD Ultra Resurfacing Laser:
- Improves the appearance of rough and uneven skin texture
- Resurfaces fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces acne and acne scarring
- Treats melasma and sun-damaged skin
- Rebuilds healthy skin
What to Expect During LaseMD Ultra treatment
LaseMD Ultra is a quick and easy skin resurfacing treatment that can be performed during your lunch break, and you may return to work immediately. Your experience depends on the intensity of the laser that is recommended to address your skin concerns. We do apply a topical numbing before treatment to make it very tolerable. As the laser passes over the skin, you may feel a warm and tingling sensation. The intensity of the sensation will vary on the depth of the laser. Results are typically seen about 10 days after treatment and will continue to improve over 12 weeks as new collagen is produced.
How many LaseMD Ultra treatments will I need?
Results are noticeable after just one treatment of LaseMD Ultra. The number of treatments needed will depend on the depth and intensity of your treatment regimen. Lighter treatments may require 4-6 treatments to see optimal results. Deeper treatments may produce full results in a single session.
Am I a candidate for LaseMD Ultra?
LaseMD is an entirely customizable treatment for anyone struggling with sun damage, acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles with various treatment settings. Unlike most laser treatments, LaseMD is safe for all skin types and colors, even tanned skin.
What is the downtime associated with the LaseMD Ultra?
There is minimal downtime associated with the LaseMD Ultra resurfacing laser. Downtime varies from 4-6 hours of mild redness like a sunburn to several days based on the intensity of the laser recommended to treat your skin concerns. Regardless, you can return to normal activity and apply makeup 24 hours after treatment.
How long will results last?
Results will appear soon after your first treatment and continue to improve for up to 6 months as collagen levels increase. In most cases, results are long-lasting. Maintenance treatment sessions will help to prolong your rejuvenation indefinitely.
