UltraPulse® CO2

UltraPulse® CO2

Living with skin imperfections can greatly affect our confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, we have skin resurfacing treatments to address your embarrassing skin imperfections. UltraPulse® CO2 is a fractional CO2 laser treatment that effectively resurfaces the skin by penetrating deep below the skin surface to renew the skin and stimulate collagen production. UltraPulse® CO2 yields better results than most other fractional lasers by offering three treatment modes, each designed to target specific aesthetic concerns.


  • Results in as little as one treatment
  • 3 treatment modes: ActiveFX™, DeepFX™, and TotalFX™
  • Boosts collagen production
  • In-office procedure
  • Treatment time less than 30 minutes
  • Non-invasive
  • Minimal to no downtime

How UltraPulse® CO2 Works?

This fractional CO2 laser works relatively similar to the process of aerating a lawn. It punches thousands of microscopic holes into the skin, which causes the skin to grow into holes, making new skin, which appears younger-looking, with fewer flaws, and thicker. Our skin loses 1% of its thickness per year, and the UltraPulse® CO2 reverses some of this thinning by stimulating new collagen growth.

Additionally, treatments with UltraPulse® CO2 can be customized to penetrate different depths through the three treatment modes, ActiveFX™, DeepFX™, and TotalFX™. ActiveFX™ targets only a small portion of the skin’s surface, making it ideal for treating fine lines and uneven skin texture. DeepFX™ targets conditions with a dermal component, making it suitable for treating wrinkles, acne scars, scarring, and saggy skin. TotalFX™ combines ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ depths to treat severe photodamage, saggy skin, wrinkles, and pigmented lesions.
