LaseMD Ultra FAQ


DeSilva Dermatology is proud to offer LaseMD Ultra, an intelligent skin rejuvenation program that maximizes the absorption of revitalizing compounds by penetrating the skin barrier. LaseMD’s Thulium laser creates micro channels through the skin, allowing absorption of nanoparticles deep in the skin.

How does LaseMD Ultra work?

LaseMD Ultra is a gentle but effective non-ablative laser that targets the water molecules in the skin. The treatment can be customized to fit your needs – whether you are looking for a light resurfacing to give your skin a glowing appearance before a special occasion or a deeper treatment to address fine lines, pigmentation and mild to moderate sun damage, LaseMD Ultra is the perfect addition to your skin care routine.

 What are the benefits of a LaseMD Ultra treatment?

  • Brighter skin tone
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Improves skin texture
  • Reduces pigment
  • Décolleté care
  • Minimizes age spots, sun spots and freckles
  • Treats actinic keratoses
  • Treats mild to moderate sun damage

Is LaseMD Ultra safe for all skin types?

Yes! Anyone can benefit from LaseMD Ultra’s cutting edge technology!

What should I expect during the treatment? Is it painful?

You will feel some heat and tingling as the laser is passed over the skin. The number of passes and procedure time will depend on the depth of treatment, lasting anywhere from 5-20 minutes. For mild treatments, the discomfort is very minimal. For more aggressive treatments, we may apply a numbing cream 30 to 45 minutes before the treatment to maximize your comfort.

What should I expect after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, you will notice some redness, which will lessen over the next day or so. The following five to six days, your skin will have a dry, sandpaper-like texture. This is normal and will resolve as your skin exfoliates, revealing fresher, clearer skin.

Is there any downtime?

While there will be some visible redness right after the treatment, you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities.

How many LaseMD Ultra treatments will I need?

Monthly treatments are recommended to maintain a youthful glow and prevent future skin damage. DeSilva Dermatology will work with you to find the best treatment regimen based on the results you are trying to achieve. LaseMD Ultra makes the perfect complement to any skincare routine!
