Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore

Master
Content

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.

Before and after pictures of Active FX patient

Content

A treatment that is more gentle than Total FX, using the laser only for superficial skin resurfacing, the patient experiences an easier healing course. The main after effect is the appearance and sloughing of many small crusted areas that fall off after 4-6 days leaving more even skin color and texture. Of note, this patient had failed other laser treatments for his multiple skin lesions due to sun damage.
