What is Revlite Laser?
Revlite Laser is an FDA-approved, non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. Revlite Laser Body utilises a precise wavelength of light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth to minimise pores, remove wrinkles and fine lines. Revlite Laser is also a skin pigmentation treatment, as it reduces uneven skin tone and removes irregular pigmentation.
How Does Revlite Laser Work?
Revlite Laser Body utilises a non-ablative laser (Q-Switched Nd:YAG), which means it does not remove any skin during the process. This laser gently and effectively uses PhotoAcoustic energy to vibrate and re-organise the collagen scaffolding, stimulating long-term collagen remodelling.
Before the treatment begins, the skin is cleansed and laser-protective goggles are positioned over the eyes. Once the patient has been prepped, treatment begins. The laser beam is directed to the target area, heating the deeper layers of the dermis. The low-level heat emitted by the laser penetrates the skin and is absorbed by excess melanin.
The laser’s mechanism shatters the small sub-cellular particles, known as melanosomes, leaving the sun or age spots to look speckled. The body treats these small particles of melanin as waste. Thus, they rise to the skin’s surface and begin to flake away, as part of the body’s natural waste process. The remaining melanin particles will continue to flake away from the skin’s surface, removing traces of skin pigmentation and revealing smooth and clear skin underneath.
Benign pigmented lesions can be treated quickly, efficiently and safely with little risk of scarring and crusting, as Revlite Laser does not damage the skin’s surface. In addition, natural skin colour will not be affected by the laser due to the wavelength of light energy used.
1. An excess amount of melanin (the pigment that determines skin and eye colour) in the skin causes age spots and sun damage to appear.
2. The laser emits a low level heat that penetrates the skin. The excess melanin absorbs the heat.
3. The heat breaks down particles of melanin into smaller particles, leaving the sun or age spot looking speckled.
4. The small particles of melanin are recognised by the body as waste. They rise to the skin surface and begin to flake away as part of the body’s natural waste process.
5. Remaining particles flake away from the skin’s surface leaving the skin smooth and clear.
Benefits of Revlite Laser
Revlite Laser is a safe, simple and fast skin rejuvenation treatment. Most patients describe the feeling of Revlite Laser as a tingling sensation with little to no pain. As such, Revlite Laser Body is a relatively comfortable non-invasive procedure. There is also no downtime, which means daily activities can be resumed after the treatment.
Safety & Side Effects
Revlite Laser is carried out by a certified doctor. Anaesthesia is usually not necessary but our doctor may prescribe some premedication or numbing cream to improve patient’s comfort. Patients may experience some redness after the procedure, but it will subside about one hour after the treatment.
