A More Even Skin Tone and Texture

woman-smilingBelladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center is the premier practice of choice for individuals seeking radiant, glowing skin without surgery. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Dennis Bucko and his team use the Encore UltraPulse FX laser to non-surgically improve skin tone and texture for a more beautiful complexion. The treatment is ideal for individuals whose skin has succumbed to the effects of aging, sun, gravity and genetics, and who want near-immediate rejuvenating results in a single treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing is appealing to individuals who are nervous about undergoing surgery, don’t have time in their schedule to devote to recovery, or who simply desire improvement without surgery.

More about Laser Skin Resurfacing with the UltraPulse FX

The UltraPulse is the most powerful carbon dioxide laser used in aesthetic medicine, and is extremely versatile. It can be used to safely treat a variety of imperfections in the skin, with little downtime. Dr. Bucko’s patients love the results they have achieved with the UltraPulse laser!

Dr. Bucko typically uses laser skin resurfacing to treat skin imperfections such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Laxity
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Other types of lesions
  • Uneven tone/texture

UltraPulse FX laser incorporates the latest carbon dioxide technology to minimize the appearance of these imperfections and rejuvenate the skin. Carbon dioxide resurfacing uses laser energy to remove the outer layers of damaged skin cells and reveal underlying layers of younger-looking skin. The laser energy is delivered in small columns to make tiny randomly spaced injuries in the deep layers of the skin, leaving healthy skin intact in between the injuries.

It also triggers the body’s production of collagen and elastin; these proteins are essential to firm, elastic and healthy-looking skin. The regeneration of collagen and elastin ensures long-term results.

Laser skin resurfacing can be performed on its own, or as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes other non-surgical or surgical procedures. For example, Dr. Bucko might recommend treatment with Botox, Dysport or dermal filler products for further age-defying results, along with facial surgery.

The UltraPulse laser has been recognized as one of the safest lasers to use for skin rejuvenation. It offers the lowest chance of side effects.

Treatment can be performed either in Dr. Bucko’s office or in an outpatient surgical setting, depending on the course of anesthesia used, and the intensity of treatment selected by the patient. The procedure itself lasts about one hour, after which the patient can return home.

After recovery from treatment, the skin is more even in tone and texture. Wrinkles and lines look smoother, and areas of pigmentation are less distinct. Depending on the specific areas of focus, the skin around the jawline, mouth, nose or eyebrows looks tighter. Laser skin resurfacing won’t stop the aging process, but it can turn back the clock five or more years. Most patients do experience redness for six weeks after deep treatment.
