Aging takes a toll on our skin. As we age, we start to notice a variety of skin issues appearing, including wrinkles and fine lines, scarring and acne scarring, rough texture, actinic keratoses, and pigmented lesions.
If you are unhappy with the look of your skin, you may be interested in laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin surfacing is an excellent method of treating numerous skin irregularities. It can improve the tone and texture of your skin while also reducing or eliminating the appearance of skin issues.
The Lumenis AcuPulse Laser
At our practice, we use the Lumenis AcuPulse laser for skin resurfacing. This laser features impressive technology that serves many aesthetic resurfacing needs. It is simple, powerful, and versatile.
• The Lumenis AcuPulse has SuperPulse technology, which means that it has an excellent coagulation/ablation ratio and is able to reach the desired treatment depth in the skin with as little as a single pulse of laser energy.
• It has a very short pulse duration, which means that patient comfort is doubled and the chances of side-effects are little to none.
• It has a very intuitive user interference, which means that it’s very easy for doctors and physicians to use. Its ease of access means that it’s also easy to set up and is able to treat patients in less time than other lasers.
• It has numerous built-in treatment modes. This means that the laser has a lot of versatility. It also gives a great deal of control for practitioners who are expert users, so they can treat specific skin issues in a way that is more effective.
