How does the LaseMD Ultra Laser Work?
The LaseMD Ultra is a non-ablative laser that uses fractional technology to rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level. Non-ablative lasers create micro-channels in the skin to stimulate the body’s own healing processes. As cell turnover occurs and collagen levels increase, the skin becomes smoother, clearer, and more youthful from the inside out.
Because these lasers only affect a portion of the skin, they can work deeply into the dermal layers to achieve dramatic improvement, while minimizing discomfort and downtime. The procedure leaves the outer dermis intact, so you can return to your regular activities afterward with little indication you had a cosmetic procedure performed.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
LaseMD Ultra treatments can work for people with a variety of skin types and tones who would like to improve early aging symptoms, sun damage, melasma, or scarring. Our dermatologists can treat multiple concerns at once and even combine LaseMD Ultra treatments with other procedures for more dramatic results.
What does LaseMD Ultra Treat?
The fractional LaseMD Ultra device is effective in addressing a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Effects of sun damage
- Hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation
- Signs of melasma
With LaseMD Ultra you can achieve dramatic improvement without the intense redness and peeling you might expect from a laser treatment This makes LaseMD Ultra ideal for someone aged 25-50 who is not quite ready for Fraxel or is looking for a procedure with less downtime.
Will LaseMD Ultra Work for Skin Pigmentation Issues?
LaseMD Ultra has proven to be effective in treating a variety of types of hyperpigmentation including melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and dark scars. This is due not only to its successful outcomes for patients but also that it requires minimal downtime after a treatment session. The LaseMD Ultra treats hyperpigmentation by first creating microscopic injuries in the skin where the pigmentation issue exists, encouraging new, healthy skin to grow, and working deep into the dermis to treat hyperpigmentation at a cellular level. This means you can treat your hyperpigmentation without harming normal skin.
LaseMD can also be used for skin rejuvenation for those patients who are not yet a candidate for Fraxel or ablative laser treatments, as it has less downtime than those lasers.
How Many LaseMD Ultra Treatments Will I Need?
The number of LaseMD Ultra treatments patients need to achieve optimal results varies, based on what the skin issue is and how extensive it is. Generally, four to six lighter treatments can resolve certain skin concerns. Operating the LaseMD Ultra at higher settings can produce optimal results in fewer sessions—sometimes just one treatment is enough. More powerful settings can achieve outcomes faster, but they create more side effects, which are temporary. Your board-certified dermatologist will be able to give you a more precise estimate of the number of treatment sessions you will need with LaseMD Ultra at your consultation.
When Will I See Results?
You will see improvement in your skin soon after your LaseMD Ultra treatment. However, those changes will continue for up to 6 months as collagen levels increase in the dermal structure.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
There is minimal downtime after a LaseMD Ultra treatment. Your skin may be red and dry for a few days, but it should not keep you from your regular activities. Protect your skin from the sun to avoid potential damage.
