Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery offers Active FX™ and Deep FX™ fractionated CO2 laser treatments using Ultrapulse Laser by Lumenis®. This state-of-the-art laser delivers customized fractional CO2 laser treatments that effectively treat fine lines, deep wrinkles, pigmentation problems, and acne scars with very little downtime. This new laser is one of many skin care services offered at our Long Island plastic surgery center for facial rejuvenation.
The unique appeal of fractionated lasers is the fact that only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated, while surrounding skin is left intact to aid in the healing process. With the Ultrapulse, the amount of treated versus untreated skin can be adjusted to tailor treatments to the individual patient’s needs, including the degree of skin damage and the amount of downtime the patient is willing to undergo. The depth of penetration also can be adjusted depending on the skin concerns being treated, as well as the patient’s tolerance level.
In studies, dramatic results were measured in most patients after just one treatment for wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, and scarring. The stimulation of collagen that results from laser treatments also improves general skin tone gradually over time. Most patients can expect a healing time of 2 to 5 days after their Ultrapulse laser treatment.
