What can I expect from a LaseMD Ultra treatment?
LaseMD Ultra takes very little time to perform a skin resurfacing treatment and can be performed during the time it takes to have lunch. You can return to work as soon as you have finished. The experience you have will depend on the setting of the laser and what you are having treated. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to make it more comfortable.
During the session, you might feel a warm, tingling sensation. The sensation that you feel will depend on the depth of the laser activity. You will normally see results from the procedure in about 10 days. These will continue to improve over a 12-week period as new collagen is produced.
How many LaseMD Ultra procedures will I need?
You should see results after one procedure. The number of procedures that you need will depend on what you are trying to achieve. Typically you will want to have between 4 and 6 procedures if you are choosing to do lighter treatments. If you choose deeper treatments, you may only need to have one procedure.
