First Physician In The World
Dr. Bernstein is the FIRST PHYSICIAN IN THE WORLD to use the ULTRACLEAR® LASER, and is the Medical Director for Acclaro Corporation, the company that created the UltraClear® laser. The UltraClear® laser from Acclaro Medical Corporation is an innovation in laser development. It’s the first cold, fiber laser for skin rejuvenation. What does this mean? It means that the UltraClear® laser delivers superior results for rejuvenating sun-damaged skin, improving acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and for maintenance of beautiful skin with little-to-no downtime depending upon the settings. The UltraClear® is an extremely versatile laser offering mild, yet effective, lunchtime peel treatments as well as deeper resurfacing treatments or a combination of the two. Dr. Bernstein invented the 3DMIRACL® treatment, which is a lunch time laser peel that rejuvenates skin and works together with topical treatments to turbo-boost their effectiveness.
UltraClear® laser FAQ
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOLLOWING AN ULTRACLEAR® 3DMIRACL® TREATMENT?
The 3DMIRACL® treatment is a mild, yet highly effective, full-face and/or neck treatment designed to improve photodamaged skin with little-to-no downtime or discomfort. It works by treating the most superficial portions of our skin while stimulating a repair response in the deeper layers in the skin. We know this by what we see after treatment, a nice even pinkness or redness in the treated areas, as well as by looking at microscope slides of treated skin which show laser effects in the most superficial portions of our skin. Thus, we can stimulate repair deep in the skin while treating the most superficial layers-a home run.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOLLOWING TREATMENT OF MY ACNE SCARS?
I treat acne scars with the UltraClear® laser using the Ultra setting, which treats the deeper layers of the skin. The UltraClear® laser makes tiny little treatment zones into the collagen layer of the skin to stimulate a healing response. A series of 2-3 treatments results in continued improvement, usually without the use of any topical numbing cream. Following treatment, the skin looks red, and a treatment pattern can be seen if you look closely. The redness resolves over a few days, generally disappearing completely 5-7 days following treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOLLOWING TREATMENT OF MY WRINKLES?
Treatment of fine lines and wrinkles is one of the main indications for the Ultra-Clear® laser. Treatment is delivered using the Ultra mode often together with the Clear mode in the same treatment session. In addition, the UltraClear® laser can be used in combination with other devices. Often, a vascular laser will be used to treat redness and photodamage on the checks, nose, and forehead with the addition of the UltraClear® laser to the perioral area (lip and chin) during the same treatment session. After treatment, the skin looks red or pink and one can see tiny treatment spots if one looks closely. The redness/pinkness resolves over the next 5-7 days and can be easily covered with make-up in the meantime.
WHAT IS A 'COLD' LASER?
A ‘cold’ laser isn’t really cold; it’s just not hot. That’s because the energy is so strongly absorbed by water that most of the energy goes into the water in our skin, rather than being deposited as heat. This means quicker healing, often no discomfort, with outstanding results.
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT THE ULTRACLEAR® LASER?
The UltraClear® laser is a unique fiber laser, and the first ‘cold’ fiber laser for dermatologic use.It’s extremely versatile and has the ability to deliver very mild, lunchtime laser peels and deeper wrinkle, acne scarring and rejuvenating treatments.The UltraClear® laser is ideally suited for combination treatments due to the fact that little heat is deposited in the skin, so superficial and deep energy can be delivered all at once. It’s a very exciting advancement in dermatologic laser technology.

The Blue Elephant’s New Outpost, and More to Explore on the Main Line
By Marni Manko | July 28, 2022Dr. Eric Bernstein isn’t shy about his love—obsession, really—of lasers. Each of his treatment rooms in his Main Line Center for Laser Surgery (dermguy.com) is chock full of all the latest and most innovative lasers that combat everything from unwanted hair to acne scarring. But his latest offering, UltraClear, is something that’ll have every Main Line woman who wants the anti-aging benefits of lasering without any pain or downtime hightailing straight to his Suburban Square office for a 15-minute lunchtime session. “What amazes me about the UltraClear is that we’re seeing a tremendous response in terms of skin improvement, often with no discomfort at all, no need for numbing cream and very little or no downtime,” says Bernstein. “I often associated downtime and pain with the degree of improvement in the past, but that’s no longer the case.” As the world’s first cold, ablative fiber laser, UltraClear can reverse the signs of aging in all skin types—including darker skin types III-VI—with less pain and downtime than other ablative devices. This includes all pesky skin problems ranging from pigmentation and fine lines to wrinkles, scars and age spots.
