Lumenis UltraPulse System Overview

Del Mar Intense Pulsed Light

The UltraPulse Encore laser is one of the most versatile resurfacing lasers offered at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology that can be adapted to meet your aesthetic goals and treat a wide range of skin conditions on the face and body, including:

Ablative lasers like the UltraPulse effectively treat a broad range of skin conditions by gently removing all or part of the skin. The body’s natural healing processes then replace the damaged skin with new and healthy tissue. Although several types of ablative lasers exist, differing mainly by wavelength, CO2 lasers have long been considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for resurfacing with the UtraPulse CO2 the “top of the line.”

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology’s Drs. Mitchel Goldman and the late Richard Fitzpatrick have been involved in the development of the UltraPulse laser as well as many clinical trials making them the most experienced practice with this device worldwide.

With over 45+ lasers, the doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are experts in laser treatments. The UltraPulse CO2 is a favorite to use because not only is it well-tolerated, but it provides patients with excellent results. Not only can it be used alone, but it can be used with the Sciton Erbium:YAG, Alexandrite, IPL and Pulse Dye lasers for a combination laser resurfacing treatment that provides significant improvement for diverse issues like fine lines, pigmentation, sun damage, etc.

The Advantage of the UltraPulse Encore CO2 Treatment

The UltraPulse uses high-power-short duration pulse technology to increase patient comfort and minimize adverse effects. As the results settle over 7-10 days, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in fine lines, skin laxity, and pigmentation.

What to Expect

The UltraPulse Encore uses infrared light to target the tissues in a chosen area to provide comprehensive treatment. The advantage of the UltraPulse is the treatment can be customized to treat either superficial skin concerns like brown pigmentation or deeper tissue issues like acne scarring, wrinkling, and benign growths.

At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, The Lumenis Ultrapulse treatment is performed in their operating room. Treatments tend to last 30 minutes to an hour depending on the desired area and desired outcomes. As an advanced fractional CO2 laser, the UltraPulse is both safe and effective. Temporary side effects may include mild redness and swelling in the treated area that will gradually resolve over 1-4 weeks.
