As the harsh rays of summer fade into cool autumnal nights, our thoughts turn to new beginnings and are often accompanied by a resolution to make the most of this next chapter.
What better time to revitalize your complexion and repair visible signs of skin damage?
Barrett Plastic Surgery is excited to introduce the Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 fractional laser—truly the gold standard in facial rejuvenation. While laser skin resurfacing is not a new technique, the Ultrapulse has upped the ante with its powerful performance and proven long-lasting effects. The Ultrapulse is six times stronger than any other CO2 laser.
Whether you have deep wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration or acne scars, the Lumenis UltraPulse penetrates deeper than any CO2 laser, yielding noticeable results after only one treatment. It works by creating microscopic channels that trigger the production of new collagen and elastic fibers while leaving some unaffected skin between the channels to reduce healing time.
The unique precision and versatility of the Lumenis laser enable Dr. Barrett and his team to customize treatments for your specific skin care concerns. UltraPulse technology allows for greater penetration than other lasers while using the lowest amount of energy, shorter pulses, and a proprietary CoolScan technology—minimizing the discomfort, downtime and thermal damage caused by other laser rejuvenation systems.
The procedure can be done in the office with a local anesthetic and usually takes 20-30 minutes. Immediately afterward, your skin will feel warm and may be slightly red or swollen. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities within 72 hours. Full recovery occurs in 7-10 days.
The best part? As your skin heals, you will notice a marked improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, tone, and texture. And the rejuvenation will continue for up to two years following the procedure due to continued collagen production.
