Acupulse Co2 Fractional Resurfacing
Advanced Skin + Body Aesthetics offers a new fractional CO-2 Acupulse laser by Lumenis. This laser treatment is the new gold standard for skin tightening and resurfacing, producing dramatic results in a single session. It combines 3 lasers in one device for improved efficiency. Collagen consists of nutrients that keep the skin looking and feeling its best. Over the years due to lack of collagen, we start to notice visible skin imperfections that cannot organically repair themselves, such as dark spots and deep wrinkles. The sudden triggering of collagen-producing cells by the CO-2 laser makes for tight, youthful skin.
The AcuPulse can treat the following problems:
- skin damage
- uneven texture
- deep wrinkles
- sun spots
- pigmentation irregularities
- acne scars
What to expect:
You may be prescribed prescription medications to use prior to your treatment to prevent infection and hyperpigmentation depending on your skin type. When you arrive for your procedure a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. During the treatment, most patients experience a moderate heat sensation as the applicator is passed over the surface of the skin. Cool air is also applied during the procedure for comfort. The full treatment generally can be expected to last around 60 minutes. Immediately following treatment, your skin will be warm and may be red and swollen, depending on your customized treatment settings. Patients will be sent home with a topical moisturizer to be worn for 3-5 days and nothing else. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities within one week. While your skin is recovering from the treatment, it is best to avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight or any other irritants which could interfere with skin regeneration.
