What is the UltraPulse laser?

The UltraPulse device penetrates the skin more deeply than most fractional CO2 lasers, making it the ideal choice for achieving an even, blemish-free complexion. With two detachable heads to provide a range of treatment depths and ultimate customization, the UltraPulse is a versatile solution for lines, wrinkles, scarring, and discoloration. 

The Active FX mode is perfect for minimizing enlarged pores, while the Deep FX mode is excellent for addressing combination skin problems, such as folds and hyperpigmentation. Total FX, Scar FX, Pigment FX, and Max FX modes provide even more possibilities for personalization. Max FX mode most closely resembles conventional CO2 laser resurfacing. 

The UltraPulse laser has over 34 uses and can be applied to even delicate facial regions like around the eyes and the lips. It is also appropriate for addressing the neck, décolletage, and hands. The UltraPulse CO2 laser in Houston at Dr. Mentz is further set apart by its built-in cooling technology, CoolScan, which improves patient comfort and relaxation during each session.

How does the UltraPulse work?

CO2 laser resurfacing in Houston targets damaged skin cells and vaporizes them so they can be replaced with healthier, more youthful cells for a glowing, radiant complexion. Selecting the correct treatment settings for laser therapy is critical, as this will determine how much damage the laser does to the superficial skin layer. The more intense the treatment, the longer the downtime. By offering a range of settings, the UltraPulse can treat virtually any skin concern with high precision and comfort. In addition to eradicating surface-level imperfections and impurities, UltraPulse also triggers collagen renewal, setting the complexion up for longer-term rejuvenation and suppleness. 

Who is a good candidate for treatment with UltraPulse?

Dr. Mentz and his team will conduct a detailed consultation to determine if the UltraPulse laser is the right choice for your goals and concerns. For patients with significant skin damage, scarring, and signs of aging, the dual technology of the UltraPulse laser can provide dramatic improvements. Even those suffering from burns and scars that inhibit function can find profound skin rejuvenation with the device, reclaiming a sense of normalcy. In fact, the UltraPulse laser is a true game-changer for patients who have lived through major trauma or injury. While most people qualify for the treatment, the UltraPulse should not be used by those who currently take or have taken Accutane within the last six months.

What is the recovery like after CO2 laser resurfacing with the UltraPulse?

Healing after CO2 laser therapy occurs in phases and the total recovery time will vary, based on the intensity of your UltraPulse treatment. Immediately after your session, you may experience redness and sensitivity akin to a sunburn. You will receive detailed instructions on how to cleanse and care for your skin during the healing process.

The initial healing phase typically lasts 5-14 days, at which point patients can begin using cosmetics to conceal any lingering discoloration. The skin will soon take on a pink glow that may last for weeks. This is perfectly normal and the skin tone will eventually appear normal. For 6-12 months after CO2 resurfacing, you will notice increased volume, suppleness, and luminosity as a result of gradual collagen regeneration.
