What is CO2 laser resurfacing with the Lumenis UltraPulse?

The Lumenis UltraPulse uses a high-powered laser to destroy the outer damaged layers of skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Treatment addresses various skin concerns, such as creases, wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, age spots, and acne scarring.

During the procedure, the Lumenis UltraPulse laser delivers a series of energy pulses that are absorbed by the water in the skin cells, causing them to vaporize and be removed. The laser also heats the deeper layers of the skin, encouraging the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers.

Dr. Lee offers CO2 laser resurfacing near Lake Forest and Ladera Ranch with the Lumenis UltraPulse as a highly precise procedure that can be customized to meet each patient's unique goals. The intensity and depth of the laser can be adjusted to target specific regions of the skin and achieve the desired results.
