I Suffered from severe acne, and was looking for a treatment for my acne scarring.
Went through series of different treatments, which included both topicals and device based.
Started a series of Photofractional treatments (IPL + ResurFX) with Dr. Peterson. The treatment is not totally uncomfortable. You need to get used to it. IPL feels warm on the skin and brightness through the eye shields. With ResurFX you can feel the heat under the skin, not only on the surface.
2 weeks after the treatment the skin already looks fantastic. People complement my skin saying my skin is so smooth. I can feel decrease in oil production, and improvement in pores.
The treatment can help reduce pore size, treat wrinkles, decrease oil production, and help with the acne scarring.
Dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Melanie Palm of Art of Skin, San Diego, CA, discusses and demonstrates the use of the Lumenis M22 platform to treat sun damaged skin. The first step of photofractional treatment, IPL (intense pulsed light) is used to remove brown spots an broken blood vessels. The second step, ResurFX laser, is used to create new collagen to improve skin texture, pore size, and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.
In my eyes the UltraPulse CO2 offers me the ability to provide a gold standard resurfacing treatment for my patients. It also serves as a unique tool to treat facial scarring as well as make functional improvements to those with burns scars.
The UltraPulse causes less erythema than other systems and provides a better tightening effect. My patients keep coming in the last 22 years and bring their families and friends.
As a plastic surgeon, the AcuPulse CO2 laser is perfect for me since I can offer effective treatment of scars. Many patients come to me because I treat with both CO2 and ResurFX lasers soon after surgical procedures. They are confident they won’t have scars, and they don’t.
For years we believed nothing could be done for heavy traumatic scars, but seeing them now with such improved mobility and texture after treatment with the UltraPulse is the happiest thing a doctor could wish for.
With only 1 treatment I see a big change in acne scars and results on both hypertrophic and hypotrophic scars are unbelievable with the UltraPulse.
