LASEMD ULTRA VS. FRAXEL, CLEAR+BRILLIANT & MOXI
LaseMD Ultra has the highest available power
LaseMD Ultra is the most powerful thulium laser at the moment, providing 20 watts of power compared to the 10 watts with other devices. Devices like Clear + Brilliant Permea, Fraxel Dual 1927, Moxi, and LaseMD Ultra all use the same wavelength because it’s great for treating pigmentation and other issues. However, LaseMD Ultra is several times stronger than all these options. LaseMD Ultra is more tunable (1-20mJ). This means it can provide a wide range of treatment intensities, from a very mild treatment to more aggressive treatment. Fraxel offers a more limited treatment intensity range (5-20mJ).
LaseMD Ultra requires fewer sessions
Since it is a higher-powered device, LaseMD Ultra usually requires fewer treatment sessions than Clear + Brilliant. With LaseMD Ultra, we recommend an initial series of three (3) treatments to patients who want to see a significant improvement in the quality of their skin. Other devices require four to six treatments to patients looking for optimal results.
Treatments are more customizable
Clear + Brilliant, often called “baby Fraxel,” is known for delivering light and gentle treatments. Meanwhile, LaseMD Ultra can do it all — from mild resurfacing to a more aggressive approach. It depends on what intensity is right for you.
It can target more skin conditions and concerns
LaseMD Ultra is the most versatile of all other devices.
Patients of all ages can benefit
Most patients who get Clear + Brilliant treatments are interested in preventing and reversing early signs of aging. They tend to be in their 20s and 30s. Meanwhile, LaseMD Ultra patients are more diverse in age. Regardless of how old you are, there is a good chance that the treatment can meet your needs.
It pairs well with microneedling
While LaseMD Ultra works great on its own, it can also be combined with Genius Rf microneedling to create a transformative treatment called the Total Skin Solution. LaseMD Ultra works superficially while Genius RF tightens and treats the deeper layers.
LASEMD ULTRA VS. CO2 LASER
Ablative lasers like CO2 treat complexion concerns by removing the top layers of the skin. LaseMD Ultra is a non-ablative laser that leaves the top layer of the skin intact. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive, more comfortable and have shorter recovery times. Ablative lasers involve more discomfort and significantly longer downtime, but they are powerful and achieve results more rapidly. Both laser resurfacing options are safe in experienced hands and effective. The right type of laser for you depends on your needs and goals.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE?
LaseMD Ultra Level I: You can expect a few hours of redness, similar to that of a mild sunburn.
LaseMD Ultra Level II: Redness can last up to three days. Light flaking is possible.
LaseMD Ultra Level III: You’ll have five days to a week of redness, likely with some flaking. Resist the urge to pick off the flakes.

PRE TREATMENT CARE
Always use sunscreen, whether you are preparing for a laser treatment or not. Your practitioner may also recommend using a pigment inhibitor cream prior to a LaseMD Ultra treatment to reduce the chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Possible Side Effect or Complications
Common side effects may include: Redness and swelling are common and will resolve within 1-5 days and may take up to 14 days for more aggressive treatments.
Other Infrequent Side Effects: 1) Pain may linger for a few hours or overnight after the procedure is completed. Most patients describe as a sunburn feeling, 2) Petechia, exudates/bleeding/crusting. LaserMD Ultra is a mild laser treatment that infrequently may cause mild pinpoint bleeding and skin crusting. DO NOT pick at the crusting. Pinpoint bleeding or crusting resolves in 5-7 days. 3) Risk of infection from bacterial, viral or fungal agents exists despite our best preventative effort. Hand washing and keeping laser area cleaned is very important. 4) Scarring may occure from crusting, infection, or from treatment. 5) Pigmentary changes: after treatment, skin may appear darker or lighter than before. Pigmentary changes are mostly transient. 6) Itching may occure as part of infection, poor wound healing, contact dermatitis, or normal would healing process. 7) Acne or milia formation: flare-up of acne or formation of milia due to treatment or use of semi-occlusive dressing Aquaphor. 8) Non-responsive to treatment: the skin condition may not improve or may worsen.
POST TREATMENT CARE
Patients may experience sun-burn sensation for 1-2 hours immediately after the treatment. Cooling with an ice pack can provide relief to the treated area. Make sure to enclose the ice pack in sterile and dry gauze to prevent water from penetrating the tissue in the treated area.
After your treatment, your skin will feel tight and will require some time to naturally exfoliate. Your results will start to appear within a few days after treatment.
Day 1: Immediately after your LaseMD Ultra treatment, your skin will be pink or red and your face will feel tight. It may feel like you have a mild sunburn for 1-2 hours, so we recommend applying an ice pack to cool the treated area. To ensure quick recovery within the first 24 hours, we recommends the following:
- Plan a quiet evening (no special events).
- Do NOT scrub the treated area. Allow the skin to heal and exfoliate naturally.
- Do not apply makeup.
- Avoid excessive exercise.
- Sun protection as usual, especially during the two weeks post treatment
- Keep skin hydrated with recommended post-care products.
Day 2: Skin feels tight and may start to flake or feel sandy.
For best results, apply lotion to keep the treatment area moisturized as directed.
Days 3 – 7: Depending on the depth of treatment performed, the skin will continue to flake and exfoliate as new skin cells replace the dry, dead ones. By now, most of the old skin will have been exfoliated, leaving you with fresh, radiant skin. Your skin will look younger, tighter, and naturally healthy.
As always, we highly recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure, especially while healing.
Please contact your practitioner with any questions or concerns.
