The Encore laser is the only truly ultrapulsing CO2 laser (10600nm) on the global market. It has several handpieces. The true-spot handpiece (0.2 or 2mm spot diameter) is used for bloodless tissue cutting or removal of small-diameter lesions, the CPG handpiece (Computer Pattern Generator) is used for removal of superficial skin, also in fractional mode, while the Microablation handpiece is used for deep fractional treatments. The combined use of these handpieces enables a multitude of skin pathologies and conditions to be treated, from fractional rejuvenation of the face to the treatment of post-trauma or burn scars. The Encore, authorised by the FDA for the treatment of over 34 different skin pathologies, offers the most powerful energy emission available today (240W). Ultrapulsed fractional CO2 laser treatment, due to the controlled release of heat, causes important production of new collagen and its successive rearrangement. The clinical results of treatment with this type of laser continue to improve as much as 9 months later.
The Encore is considered by far the best CO2 laser availabe today on the international market, and many experts consider it the best technology ever produced.
