LaseMD Ultra
Resurfacing laser that is Revitalizing Skincare for men & women!

Have you been feeling remorseful because of how you’ve treated your skin over the years? Is it time to find a skin care solution that addresses many, if not, all, of the issues that keep you from looking amazing?

Real results with minimal downtime.  No hype !!!     |   Safe  year-round    |    Customizable for all skin types    |    Customizable for tolerance levels      More powerful than Clear + Brilliant, Fraxel, and Moxi     |     Dubbed a “lunchtime laser,” or “Happy Laser” due to how quick and effective the treatment sessions are!   |    Consistent results

FDA-approved LaseMD Ultra by LUTRONIC is considered the “next-generation” in non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. The LaseMD Ultra™ features a 1927 nm Thulium laser, which is safe for all skin types & tones, highly customizable for each patient’s needs, extremely cost-effective, and can be performed all year around. With treatments ranging from mild to aggressive, the LaseMD Ultra™ is quickly becoming very popular with patients who want immediate visible results minus the recovery time.

You’ll look dewy and fresh! LaseMD Ultra is more than a spot treatment, LaseMD is used on the whole face, neck or chest as part of a long-term skin care regimen. It’s also a beauty boost before a big event. Many patients get it two weeks before a wedding, for example. Patients love the quick results.

The Procedure:  This gentle but effective laser procedure uses a patented fractional technology creating microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time in a pixelated pattern, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched to promote rapid healing. The controlled damage created by the laser stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged skin with fresh, rejuvenated, healthy skin. Immediately after the procedure, the skin acts as a sponge for serums containing growth factors, nano-peptides, vitamins, antioxidants, and/or pigment reducers. Results are both immediate and progressive. Individual results may vary and are difficult to predict. A series of treatments is highly recommended to encourage optimal results and maintenance sessions may be required in the future even if excellent results have been achieved.

Indications: Fine lines and wrinkles, Melasma, sun damage, age spots, freckles, uneven or inconsistent texture, acne or surgical scarring, stretch marks, Actinic Keratosis (precancerous lesions), and hair & scalp revitalization (Keralase™ Treatment).

Recommended Course of Treatment:  3 treatments every 2-6 weeks (scars and stretch marks require more treatments). Maintenance treatments can be discussed as desired. Combination therapy with Lutronic GENIUS® (TotalSkin Solution™) is highly recommended.

RF Microonedling + LaseMD ULTRA

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 Microneedling or 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.

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.

Fine lines and wrinkles, Melasma, sun damage, age spots, freckles, uneven or inconsistent texture, acne or surgical scarring, stretch marks, Actinic Keratosis (precancerous lesions), and hair & scalp revitalization (Keralase™ Treatment).

Contraindications include but are not limited to the following:

          • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
          • Accutane (isotretinoin) in the last 6 months
          • Retin A topical or other skin irritating products
          • Blood thinning medications within the last week
          • History of keloid scarring or abnormal wound healing
          • Skin cancer or suspicious lesions
          • Allergies to topical anesthetics
          • Sunburn (natural sunlight, tanning), extreme sensitivity, rosacea
          • Poorly controlled medical conditions (i.e. diabetes, vascular)
          • Impaired immune system and/or use of immunosuppressive medications
          • Active infection, cold sores (Herpes Simplex), psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis
          • Tattoos and/or permanent makeup
          • Impaired judgment, psychological conditions, and substance or alcohol abuse
          • Patients with unrealistic expectations

A treatment typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, your provider will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Once you’re fully numb, you’ll put on eye protection. Then your provider will move the LaseMD handpiece across the treatment area. Its laser energy will penetrate the dermal layers via microchannels. You’ll feel tingling, and possibly some mild discomfort, depending on the intensity level of your treatment. After your treatment, your provider may apply topical serums with antioxidants and other potent ingredients, which will penetrate into the lower layers of your skin via the microchannels. They may also apply a moisturizer, since the heat from the laser tends to dry out skin.

Compliance with the recommended pre / post-care instructions as well as recommended follow-up visits by your practitioner are crucial for the success of your treatment and to prevent unnecessary side effects or complications. It is your responsibility to inform your practitioner of any changes in medical history, medications, and most recent sun exposure before each treatment is performed.

Before Your Treatment

          • You may not be pregnant or lactating.
          • Patients who have used Accutane or similar products within the last 6 months CANNOT be treated.
          • Discontinue the use of any topical products that may be drying or irritating (e.g. AHAs, BHAs, retinoids) 3 days prior.
          • Avoid taking any blood-thinning agents for 3-7 days prior unless otherwise prescribed by your physician.
          • Avoid unprotected sun exposure, or tanning for at least 2 weeks prior.
          • Avoid other aesthetic procedures and cosmetic injections in the area(s) to be treated for 2 weeks before and after.
          • If you are prone to cold sores, it is recommended to take antiviral medication for up to 7 days before and after.
          • Stay hydrated by drinking 8+ glasses of water daily to improve results & healing time.
          • The ideal time to schedule this procedure is 1-2 weeks before a big event (depending on treatment aggression).

Day of Treatment

          • Taking a Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID i.e. Motrin) 1 hour before may reduce the level of discomfort and inflammation.
          • Arrive with clean skin free of any lotion, oil, makeup, powder, or sunscreen.
          • Notify your practitioner of any changes in your medication, health status, or personal activities that may be relevant.
          • Topical numbing cream may be administered to maximize your comfort during the procedure.

After Your Treatment

What to expect:

          • Patients will experience mild to moderate erythema (redness), edema (swelling), or a warm stinging / sunburn-like sensation for several hours to days post-treatment. However, for more aggressive treatments, these symptoms may last longer.
          • Other possible skin reactions include irritation, itching, and general sensitivity, which may last for 3 or more days.
          • Keep the treated area clean & change your pillowcase daily or lay on a clean towel each night.
          • Commonly patients experience a day of dryness and the area will feel a bit like sandpaper to the touch. DO NOT pick, excessively rub, scratch, or scrub the treatment area.
          • It is imperative to allow natural healing to minimize post-treatment complications. Treat the skin gently as if you have a sunburn. DO NOT disrupt flaking skin or crusts as these will fall away naturally within 3-7 days (longer for aggressive treatments).
          • Results are both immediate and progressive. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve individually desired results.

24 Hour Care:

          • DO NOT wear makeup for at least 24 hours (48 hours for aggressive treatments).
          • Avoid all strenuous activity for a minimum of 24 hours as sweating increases infection risk.
          • DO NOT USE ICE on the treatment area. You may apply a cold compress to provide relief & soothe the treated area. Make sure to enclose the compress in dry gauze or a paper towel.

General Care:

          • Keep the area clean & hydrated by using mild soap & lukewarm water to cleanse the skin and apply moisturizer.
          • Care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated area specifically for the first few days after your procedure.
          • You may take Tylenol for post-treatment discomfort or Benadryl / Zyrtec if you experience excessive itching (histamine reaction). Topical application of hydrocortisone is also recommended.
          • Products such as hydrating masks, serums, and moisturizers may be applied to soothe & calm skin as needed.
          • Avoid all direct & indirect sun exposure.
          • Always use an SPF 30 or higher containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide for proper sun protection. Use an umbrella, hat, or any other available protection against sunlight when outdoors.
          • Do not have any other treatments for at least 1 – 2 weeks after your treatment or until the skin has completely healed.
          • Your practitioner will make individual recommendations on when to resume normal skincare (typically after 7 days).

If you experience any side effects, such as prolonged redness or swelling, histamine reaction, blisters, burns, or signs of infection please contact your practitioner immediately for proper assessment and further care instructions.
