Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore

Ablative fractional resurfacing with the Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore is a major advance in treatment of skin aging. The Encore uses a CO2 laser in three different modes to produce precise resurfacing of the skin resulting in smoother skin with a more even color. The CO2 laser has been the gold standard in giving excellent results with skin resurfacing for years. Older versions were limited by extensive healing and downtime. By using the latest fractional resurfacing techniques, the skin heals much quicker resulting in an excellent safety profile. To ensure the best possible healing, please read the care sheet from Baylor Dermatology carefully detailing the pre-procedure care and after care recommended.
