CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment
Benefits of DeepFX
- Results in a single treatment
- Minimal downtime
- Improves scars, wrinkles and texture
- Deep dermal stimulation
- Dramatic results
As we age, changes deep in the dermis accumulate leading to visible signs that include fine lines, deep wrinkles, texture irregularites and scarring. To adequately treat these problems, treatments need to reach the deep layers of your skin and renew the collage foundation. Previous treatments produced great reults but were limited in appeal due to length recovery times. With the NEW fractional DeepFX treatments, Dr. Welch is able to treat the deep layers of your skin, but keep downtime to a minimum. Now, deep wrinkles, skin texture and scares are dramatically improved after just ONE TREATMENT.
What is DeepFX?
DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascacde of healing responses that leads to tissue regenreation and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.
Power, Speed and Versatility
With 240W of pulse power to tissue, the UltraPulse is 6 times more powerful than any other CO2 laser available. The first CO2 lasers delivered energy in continuous waves. These lasers could not produce very high peak powers for sustained periods, and therefore had limited pulse energy. As a result, charring often occurred when attempting to resurface tissue with practical spot sizes.
240 Watts of power allows the Ultrapulse to
treat with safe and effective pulse durations that are less than 1 millisecond
Speed comes twofold with the UltraPulse. First the UltraPulse has the highest pulse power and energy of any fractional CO2 system marked today. This lends itself to minimal time on tissue, which results in lower collateral thermal damage reducing patient pain and complications.
In addition to the benefit of a short pulse, the scanner has a capability to produce 6oo treatment spots per second and can treat up to a 10mm x 10mm area.
The high pulse power also allows the UltraPulse to go up to a 1.3mm treatment spot for the ActiveFX superficial fractional and conventional ablative procedures.
The UltraPulse is the most versatile CO2 laser system available. It is capable of offering the full range of fractional resurfacing: DeepFX offers a small, deep spot microablative treatment and ActiveFX offers a large, superficial spot treatment. DeepFX and ActiveFX can be combined to form TotalFX, for total outcomes in the treatment of scars, fine lines, texture, dyschromia and deep wrinkles.
Complete control of depth per spot, density of scanned spots, spot shape, and pattern size make this system an extremely versatile machine.
In all, the UltraPulse has 34 cleared FDA indications for Aesthetics
