What is Lutronic UltraLase?
Lutronic UltraLase is a non-invasive laser treatment used for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing.
How does it work?
The UltraLase uses a 1927 nm, 20-Watt Thulium laser to target the skin’s surface with micro-columns of laser energy. This energy penetrates the skin, creating tiny wounds that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. As the skin heals, it produces new collagen, which leads to a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What can it treat?
Lutronic UltraLase can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin texture
Is it painful?
Most patients report little to no pain during the UltraLase treatment. However, a topical anesthetic cream may be applied to the skin prior to treatment to help minimize any discomfort.
What is the recovery time?
The recovery time for Lutronic UltraLase is typically minimal. Patients may experience some redness and swelling immediately following treatment, but this typically resolves within a few days. Patients may resume their normal activities immediately following treatment, although it is recommended to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual patient’s skin condition and treatment goals. Some patients may see results after a single treatment, while others may require multiple treatments.
Is it safe?
Lutronic UltraLase is generally considered safe for most patients. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects, including redness, swelling, and hyperpigmentation. It is important to discuss these risks with Dr. Bansal and her team prior to undergoing treatment.
