The most common area to be treated is the face, followed by the neck, chest, arms, shoulders and hands. LaseMD Ultra stimulates natural collagen production by delivering just the right amount of energy and heat to the skin’s proper depths without injuring its surface.
The LaseMD Ultra is a thulium 1927 nm wavelength laser. This is a great wavelength for treating pigmentation because it’s highly absorbed by the water in the skin. The other 1927 lasers on the market are Clear + Brilliant, Fraxel Dual 1927, and Moxi. LaseMD has the highest power of any of these devices.

Candidates For LaseMD Ultra
Most people are excellent candidates for LaseMD Ultra. It’s beneficial for all ages and skin and can be used for its general rejuvenation benefits. It’s great because we can customize the settings to fit your needs. It can provide everything from mild resurfacing to a more aggressive treatment.
It is safe for all skin types and colors, even in the summer on lightly tanned skin. It will significantly improve the overall beauty of your skin for a radiant glow you will love.
The LaseMD Ultra Treatment
If you would like a light resurfacing, we can use a lower setting and no numbing cream is necessary. If you would like to be more aggressive, the treatment is more comfortable when combined with topical prescription anesthetic. You will feel heat as the laser passes over your skin.
LaseMD Ultra Recovery
A significant benefit of LaseMD Ultra is that it involves minimal downtime. Most patients return to their daily routine right after leaving their appointment.
You can expect mild redness, the day of and the day after, a sandpaper feel to your skin for about a week, and increased sun sensitivity. It is normal for the pigment and debris on the surface of your skin to darken first then flake off during this time. You may also experience temporary heat, stinging or itching after the treatment. Follow our aftercare directions to protect your skin and ensure optimal results.
How Many LaseMD Ultra Treatments Will I Need?
Results are noticeable after just one treatment of LaseMD Ultra. The number of treatments needed will depend on the depth and intensity of your treatment regimen. Lighter treatments may require 4-6 treatments to see optimal results. Deeper treatments may produce full results in a single session. Most patients see significant improvement in the quality of their skin after three treatment sessions spaced at one-month intervals.
LaseMD Ultra Results
Results will appear soon after your first treatment and continue to improve for up to 6 months as collagen levels increase. In most cases, results are long-lasting. Maintenance treatment sessions will help to prolong your rejuvenation indefinitely. You may choose to schedule a yearly follow-up treatment after your initial series. It can refresh your complexion and keep your skin at its best. Medical grade skincare can also help you maintain your results.
