Areas of Treatment
LaseMD Ultra is most often used on the face, neck and chest, but it can also be used on other areas of the body, including the hands, arms and shoulders.
Procedure length depends on the size and scope of the areas being treated, but you can expect your LaseMD treatment to take 5 to 20 minutes to complete, or potentially longer.
Minimal; one to two days.
Frequency of Maintenance
Typically, two to three treatments are recommended for the best results. After that, you can maintain your results with a touch-up every six to 12 months.
During your initial consultation, our experienced team will evaluate your skin and discuss your goals to develop a treatment plan just for you. Some of the factors we take into consideration include your concerns, overall skin health and desired results. This information allows us to recommend the optimal number of treatment sessions. We will also take this time to thoroughly explain the treatment process and address any questions you may have.
LaseMD Ultra is gentle on the skin and requires little to no preparation. However, we will request that you arrive at your appointment with clean skin and may recommend avoiding certain topicals, such as retinols and some acne medications, for at least one week prior. These steps help ensure that your treatment is as safe and effective as possible.
Before beginning treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort. This step may be unnecessary if the device is calibrated to a lower setting. LaseMD Ultra is generally well-tolerated, but this can vary depending on treatment intensity and your individual pain tolerance. The most common sensation described by patients is a feeling of warmth or tingling as the laser penetrates the skin.
Once your skin has been prepped, your provider will move the handheld LaseMD Ultra device across the targeted areas. This state-of-the-art technology emits controlled laser energy in a grid-like pattern that reaches the deeper layers of your skin without causing damage to the surface. Each pass of the device is precise and calculated, contributing to the overall effectiveness of treatment. The length of your appointment may vary from a quick five-minute session to a longer 20 minutes. LaseMD Ultra can complete a full-face treatment in just six to eight minutes.
Once your treatment is complete, a soothing ointment will be applied to the skin, offering immediate comfort and kickstarting the healing process. LaseMD is a non-ablative and fractional device, so the recovery is quicker compared to more aggressive lasers. You can expect to experience mild redness and swelling that persists for a day or two in treated areas, similar to a low-grade sunburn. Over the course of the week, your skin will also develop a dry texture before revealing a smoother, healthier and brighter complexion. This is normal and indicates that the treatment worked. In most cases, full healing takes five to seven days.
You will start to see improvements soon after your LaseMD Ultra treatment. Positive changes in your skin’s tone and texture will continue to develop over the next several months as collagen and elastin production increases, leaving you with a visibly healthier, firmer and more youthful appearance. Depending on your needs and goals, it’s possible to achieve your desired results after just one treatment. However, deeper and more significant signs of aging or sun damage typically require several visits to attain the best possible outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does LaseMD Ultra Work?
The LaseMD Ultra is a 1927nm non-ablative fractional laser. A fractional laser treats the skin in a grid-like pattern, leaving the surrounding tissues untouched for a quicker recovery. As the laser's energy penetrates the skin, it creates tiny microchannels to trigger the natural healing response, stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers. As collagen and elastin production increases, the skin’s tone and texture improve over time, lessening the appearance of concerns related to sun damage, aging, pigmentation issues and scarring.
How Does LaseMD Differ From Other Laser Treatments?
LaseMD Ultra stands out due to its specialized laser technology. Unlike ablative lasers that remove the top layer of skin, LaseMD Ultra works by heating up the deeper tissues, causing minimal damage to the overlying surface. This approach results in a much more comfortable experience and a shorter recovery time. Moreover, its fractional method ensures that only a small fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser at a time, allowing for quicker healing and minimizing the risk of side effects compared to more aggressive laser treatments. The LaseMD Ultra is also more powerful than the Clear + Brilliant, Fraxel and Moxi because it has a higher power output and is a true Thulium laser.
Is LaseMD Ultra Painful?
One of the key advantages of LaseMD Ultra is minimal discomfort during the procedure. Most patients report little to no pain thanks to the non-ablative nature of the laser and the application of a topical anesthetic cream prior to treatment. You'll feel a warm, prickling sensation as the laser penetrates the skin, but this is generally well-tolerated. The comfort level experienced during the LaseMD Ultra procedure is often a highlight for patients, making it an appealing option for those wary of painful treatments.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
The number of LaseMD Ultra sessions you’ll need varies depending on your individual concerns and aesthetic goals. Generally, a series of two to three treatments spaced a couple of weeks apart is recommended to attain optimal results. During your consultation, our experienced team will assess your needs and expectations to determine the appropriate treatment plan. Some patients may see significant improvements in their skin after just one session, while others with more complex concerns might benefit from additional treatments.
LaseMD Ultra can be effectively paired with other skincare treatments to address a wider range of concerns and maximize the benefits you’ll receive in one session.
Some of our most popular treatment combinations include pairing the LaseMD Ultra with a BBL Photofacial, Halo laser resurfacing and RF microneedling, which work together to provide more dramatic results than each procedure on its own. We also use LaseMD Ultra for hair restoration by combining it with KeraFactor and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments.
