AcuPulse CO2 laser
AcuPulse™ is a complete ablative resurfacing workstation, featuring superior technology for all aesthetic resurfacing needs.
The fractional CO-2 Acupulse by Lumenis is the new gold standard CO2 laser skin tightening and resurfacing system, combining 3 lasers in one device for improved efficiency.
The fractional CO-2 Laser uses energy-rich beams of light. The laser pulses are tightly controlled and redirected with surgical precision to the areas needing treatment. The energy penetrates straight down, then the heat from the beam spreads out laterally and activates important healing cells called Fibroblasts which turn on and begin laying down long strands of new, fresh collagen and elastin. These are the major protein fibers of our connective tissue.
The high-energy beam also targets melanin deposits in the skin and, by breaking them up, evens out the skin tone, thus removing sun-caused blotches.
The sudden triggering of collagen-producing cells makes for a tight, youthful skin. Acne craters are softened and filled in with the new connective tissue, thus reducing or even eliminating their appearance.
ActiveFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for the active person. It is a fractional laser treatment, meaning that tiny laser beams penetrate the skin in a dot-like pattern which leaves “bridges” of untreated skin around each treated microdot, allowing for a faster healing process and enabling you to get back to normal activities sooner. The treatment causes the upper layer of skin to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.
All kinds or spots, wrinkles and scars have a dermal component and are most effectively treated by penetrating deep into the problem areas. Higher percentage of untreated skin enables quicker healing. The ActiveFX is ideal for treating mild to moderate levels of spots and wrinkling, it will improve pigmentation issues. For acne scarring, the ActiveFX allows a moderate level of improvement.
DeepFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for deeper wrinkles and scars that have a dermal component. This treatment also uses a fractional pattern to aid in the regeneration process. The deep heating associated with DeepFX causes immediate collagen tightening and long-term collagen remodeling. The patient can expect softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, with improved skin texture. The Deep FX treatment is fantastic for wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.
DeepFX reaches deeper into the skin to create a more intense thermal response. Heat is the catalyst for new collagen tightening and collagen production. Just as a cotton t-shirt will shrink in the dryer from the heat, the collagen strands in your skin will “shrink” when sufficient heat is introduced. The DeepFX laser beam is very narrow and reaches the stimulatory levels of the deep dermis. Besides the immediate collagen shrinkage, new collagen growth begins with your treatment and this collagen growth continues for months. After 3 to 5 months you’ll reach your “best response” with skin that is tighter, smoother, and more luminous.
Total FX combines the Active FX and Deep FX systems. The results are fractional resurfacing of the surface of your skin, removing sun damage and brown spots, as well as the deeper skin, removing wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone. Total FX is a complete resurfacing treatment capable of astounding results.
