Laser-Coring™ Boston

What is the difference between Traditional tissue coring versus laser coring procedures?

 Traditional or manual coring does not deliver laser heat and coagulation. Where as laser coring delivers heat and coagulation with less bulk heating and less collateral damage which can result in superb dermal remodeling with skin rejuvenation. Both tissue coring and laser rejuvenation create a compounding effect, resulting in fast collagen contraction and remarkable cosmetic results.

This advanced technique delivers outstanding cosmetic results, particularly for deep wrinkles and deep scars, helping patients achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.

Does laser coring help areas around the eye?

YES. We have noticed a dramatic improvement around the eyes both the upper and lower eyelid areas. 

Can you treat peri-oral lines and wrinkles with UltraClear LaserCoring?

There is no other energy-based procedure or nonsurgical treatment available for peri-oral lines other than fractional ablative laser. Traditional CO2 laser has too many side effects and downtime. This novel lasercoring and ultraclear laser can help with all the issues around the mouth such as deep lines, pigmentation, sagging, & laxity, and also improve the jawline with a lifted look and refreshed appearance.

How to take care of your skin after Lasercoring UltraClear or CO2 Laser?

After undergoing fractional ablative laser resurfacing, especially with laser coring or CO2 Laser it’s crucial to follow specific guidelines for optimal healing. Please adhere to the following instructions diligently to ensure the best outcome and minimize the risk of complications.


Plan for a minimum of five to seven days of downtime post-procedure. Avoid scheduling any major events for the next 4 weeks to allow for complete recovery.

**Immediate Post-Procedure Care:**

– Rarely some patients may need to make arrangements for transportation home after the procedure due to possible discomfort. 

– Expect open wounds, which will heal effectively with proper care and adherence to instructions.

**Skin Hydration:**

– Prevent crusting and dryness by prioritizing skin hydration. Pre and Post laser hydration is critical.

– Avoiding epidermal water loss is essential for faster healing which might take up to 3 months.

**Post-Procedure Rules:**

1. Thoroughly wash hands with Hibiclens Antimicrobial and Antiseptic Skin Cleanser  and avoid nails/nail polish.

2. Ensure clean sheets and linens, and prepare a big jar of vinegar solution (8 ounce of water to 1 TBS of white distilled vinegar ) and dip  sterile gauzes, keep it in the refrigerator before the laser. so that you can start applying vinegar soaks immediately after you go home.

3. Perform vinegar soaks every 1-2 hours and apply Aquaphor for the first three days.

4. Use sterile gauze for cleaning, avoiding any face wash or personal face cloth.

5. Maintain hand hygiene and minimize contact with pets, babies, or potential sources of infection.
