Understanding Skin Aging and Damage
Skin aging and damage are a natural part of life, but various internal and external factors can significantly impact them. As we age, our skin gradually loses collagen and elastin, the two essential proteins responsible for the structure and suppleness of our skin, resulting in wrinkles and a loss of firmness. In addition to these internal aging processes, damage can occur from environmental factors such as prolonged sun exposure, pollution, poor diet, and lifestyle choices like smoking or lack of sleep.
Over time, these factors can lead to various visible signs of skin aging and damage, including fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, uneven skin tone, and reduced elasticity. Discoloration or hyperpigmentation, such as age spots or melasma, can also occur due to increased melanin production. Similarly, skin damage can weaken the skin barrier, making the skin more vulnerable to future harm and less able to retain moisture, resulting in dry skin that appears dull and lifeless.
Understanding these causes of skin aging and damage is essential as it forms the basis for treating and preventing these skin issues. It informs the choice of appropriate skincare products and treatments, like the LaseMD Ultra, designed to target these specific concerns and promote healthier, younger-looking skin.
What is LaseMD Ultra?
LaseMD Ultra is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment designed to alleviate many skin types and conditions. This next-generation laser therapy uses advanced technology to offer a non-invasive and highly effective solution for various skin concerns.
The LaseMD Ultra system delivers precise, controlled laser energy to the skin, creating microchannels on the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, promoting the increased formation of new collagen and elastin to rejuvenate and restore the skin.
What sets LaseMD Ultra apart from other skin treatments is its customization ability. The laser’s intensity can be adjusted according to the individual’s skin type and specific needs, making it a versatile solution for treating a variety of skin concerns, from mild to severe.
How Does LaseMD Ultra Work?
LaseMD Ultra operates based on the principle of fractional laser resurfacing, which creates microchannels in the skin using precise laser energy. These microchannels, which only affect a fraction of the skin at a time, initiate the body’s natural healing process, causing it to generate new skin cells and collagen.
The device uses a 1927 nm wavelength, a carefully chosen range that’s absorbed by water in our skin cells. This energy absorption process is beneficial as it allows the laser to target specific skin layers accurately without causing unnecessary damage to surrounding tissues. As a result, it can precisely treat various skin issues while minimizing recovery time.
LaseMD Ultra also stands out due to its adaptable nature. It offers different levels of treatments, from gentle, no-downtime procedures to more aggressive treatments, depending on the patient’s skin type, condition, and aesthetic goals. This allows for more effective personalized treatments that address the individual’s skin concerns and needs.

Safety and Considerations
As with any aesthetic treatment, it’s important to consider the potential side effects and safety precautions associated with LaseMD Ultra. This treatment is generally well-tolerated and considered safe for all skin types. It uses non-ablative lasers, which means it doesn’t remove the top layer of skin, thereby reducing the risk of complications like infections or scarring.
However, some patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or a warm sensation in the treated area. These effects usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days. It’s recommended to avoid sun exposure and wear sunblock in the days following the treatment, as the skin may be more sensitive to the sun.
Most of the improvement from the treatment is visible for six months as new collagen and elastin form, and results should last about a year. Additionally, two to three treatment sessions are recommended for the best results, but many patients prefer to maintain those effects with follow-up sessions every 6-12 months. However, consulting with a trained professional or dermatologist before an aesthetic procedure is crucial to understand the potential risks and benefits thoroughly.
