How the Ultrapulse® CO2 Is Stretching the Limits of Skin Resurfacing

 Ultrapulse® CO2 Skin Resurfacing treatment in San Diego at Siti Med Spa

Life takes its toll on your skin. Sun damage, acne scars, dark spots, and wrinkles are all visible signs of stress and aging. If you’ve ever considered refreshing your appearance with a skin resurfacing treatment, you’ve got a lot of options – but for maximum results, there’s no better choice than Total FX skin resurfacing, featuring the UltraPulse® CO2 laser.

Laser skin resurfacing explained

Skin resurfacing treatments have been around for years. From chemical peels to microdermabrasion, there are many non-surgical ways to smooth away lines and wrinkles, even out your skin tone, and achieve a younger, healthier overall appearance. But to achieve some of the most dramatic results with maximum precision and minimal downtime, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing can completely rejuvenate the way you look.

Using the latest advances in laser technology, fractional CO2 removes the very top layers of your skin, revealing the fresh, youthful complexion beneath. Using short pulses of light energy, fractional CO2 lasers create thousands of microscopic perforations in your skin’s surface, stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen and elastin. As your skin heals, it becomes tighter, smoother, and more evenly toned. Over time, you’ll see a reduction in wrinkles, and scar tissue will fade away.

UltraPulse®: the most advanced option for skin resurfacing

UltraPulse® represents the latest advances in fractional CO2 laser technology. Previous versions of ablative skin resurfacing lasers had low power and long pulses, so they couldn’t penetrate very deeply without increasing the risk of heat damage to the skin. But UltraPulse® has the shortest pulse duration of any laser on the market – and it can penetrate deeper than any other ablative laser out there.

Some of the other ways UltraPulse® is stretching the limits of skin resurfacing include:

  • Precision

UltraPulse® targets the exact areas of your skin that need treatment, reducing the risk of damage and decreasing healing time.

  • Performance

UltraPulse® has more energy and can penetrate up to four times deeper than any other CO2 laser, making it ideal for hard-to-treat lesions. It also has an excellent ablation/coagulation ratio, allowing your body to replace scar tissue with normal tissue at a rapid rate.

  • Versatility

With a range of intensity settings, you can use UltraPulse® in a variety of ways – it’s equally effective on deep scarring as it is on fine lines. Plus, treatment areas include your face, neck, chest, and even your hands or arms.

  • Comfort

The CoolScan® technology in the UltraPulse® laser minimizes pain, discomfort, and thermal damage that can occur with other less advanced fractional CO2 laser treatments.

Total FX treatment uses UltraPulse® technology

At Siti Med Spa, we offer Total FX laser skin resurfacing treatments, featuring the UltraPulse® fractional CO2 laser. Total FX combines two different kinds of laser resurfacing treatments – Active FX and Deep FX – for thorough rejuvenation and spectacular results.

Active FX treats the top layer of skin using a wider laser beam, reducing the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Deep FX uses a narrower beam of light to penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin, immediately tightening your skin tissue, and stimulating collagen production to encourage continuous improvement.

Together, both Active FX and Deep FX deliver dramatic results for complete rejuvenation of your most youthful skin.
