The UltraClear laser represents the latest generation of “resurfacing” lasers and is designed to restore or rejuvenate skin altered by photoaging, sun damage and scarring processes.
Brief History of Resurfacing Lasers
- 1980s CO2 lasers
- 1990s Erbium Yag lasers
- 2000s Fractionated lasers e.g. Fraxel
- 2022 UltraClear Laser
Advantages of the UltraClear laser include
- Precision treatments and the ability to treat darker skin types
- Safety and improved comfort
- Reduced downtime
The UltraClear laser has 6 treatment modalities.
The less intense modes are designed to remove superficial layers (measured in microns) of the epidermis, restoring refreshed, glowing skin. Minimal discomfort, with the option of anaesthetic cream and limited downtime, presents this as a viable option for patients with busy lifestyles.
The more intense treatment modes target more significant sun damage, wrinkles and scars.
