What is the UltraClear Laser?
How is the UltraClear laser different from other lasers?
Additionally, the laser is “highly tunable” – meaning that the laser settings can be changed to treat specific concerns. The depth that the laser treats can be set to treat anywhere between 5 microns (that’s 0.005 or 5 thousandths of a millimeter!!!) and 2 mm!!! This allows Dr. Peck to treat very superficial pigment concerns all the way down to deep scars and wrinkles.
The amount of tissue to be treated can also be tailored to the specific need. The UltraClear laser is a “fractional ablative” laser, meaning that when the skin is treated, there are islands of treated tissue surrounded by untreated tissue. The untreated tissue helps the treated tissue heal. With the UltraClear, the percentage of tissue treated in each part of the face can be changed based on what each individual needs. If there is a young patient with thick healthy skin and very few fine lines, only a small percentage of skin needs to be treated to reach the desired result. However, if someone has areas of thin, wrinkled or excess skin, a higher percentage can be treated with the laser to obtain the desired result.
