Revlite

revLite-1RevLite is an advanced laser treatment that targets and corrects skin pigmentation and discoloration. Problems like melasma, age and sun spots, as well as freckles are addressed through the Q-switched laser technology which breaks down the chromophores that cause skin pigmentation, while leaving healthy tissues unharmed.

Preserve your skin’s natural beauty and get rid of those Sun Spots, Freckles and Uneven Pigments.

When melanin, which gives our skin its color, is concentrated in one area, it causes unwanted spots in the skin. This is usually a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. RevLite produce a special wavelength of light that is absorbed by pigment lesions which in turn vibrates and shatters the pigment, breaking the concentrated melanin into micro particles and, therefore, lightening the lesion. You’ll notice the spot turning gray or white for a few minutes and then turn darker and slough off completely within one to two weeks.

RevLite works well to remove brown age spots, freckles and other birthmarks (cafe-au-lait spots and Nevus Ota).

Manage Unwanted Hair

Shave, tweeze, wax, and pluck no more! RevLite represents the next generation of hair removal – requiring just a few treatments for near-permanent results. As the laser wavelength passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle, the light damages the hair follicle and disrupts its growth, causing the hair to fall out. Any hair that grows back will be thinner and finer.

RevLite is the safest laser available today for effective hair removal on any skin color, even dark skin. This laser produce light in very short pulses, destroying the hair follicle and shattering the follicle without any harm to the surrounding skin.

Laser Tattoo Removal – Erasing a Piece of Your Past

Although a tattoo looks like a simple painting, it’s actually a series of ink deposits deep within the skin – designed to last forever. Today, it’s increasingly common for people to seek tattoo removal – for personal or professional reasons. Early methods carried a high risk of scarring, were painful and not very effective. RevLite eliminates most tattoos with a high degree of success and very low risk of scarring that this has become the gold standard laser for tattoo removal, with a strong history of efficacy worldwide.

Lasers target tattoos with a very specific wavelength of light energy. This light energy gently vibrates and shatters the tattoo ink into micro-particles that are eventually eliminated through the body’s natural process. Because the laser delivers the energy in a very precise ‘beam’, physicians can trace the design without damaging the surrounding skin.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation – The Ultimate Anti-Aging Tool

Collagen provides the essential support network for our skin. As we age, collagen breaks down, causing lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure damages collagen too, and can cause pigment problems (brown spots), uneven tone and rough or leathery texture. RevLite use a precise wavelength of light energy to target underneath the skin, deeper than any lotions or moisturizer can, stimulating collagen production at the source. As new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are reduced which then create a refreshed appearance, smooth texture, more even skin, and a decrease in pore size.

What does the laser therapy feel like?

Many people describe the feeling of non-ablative laser therapy as a tingling sensation. The impact of the energy from the pulse of light is similar to the snap of a very thin rubber band. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but you may request a topical cream if you wish. For those having tattoo removal, some patient may fell mild discomfort as the physician traces the design because the tattoo ink absorbs the laser energy.

How long does the treatment last?

Depending on the condition, the treatment usually lasts about 20 to 30 minutes. This is great for busy people who cannot stay long for treatments like skin rejuvenation, hair removal, or skin pigmentation. Tattoo removal, however, may require more time depending on the size of the tattoo and its location.

Post-Treatment

The treated area may feel similar to a mild sunburn. Laser skin rejuvenation may cause a mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour or a day after treatment. No specific post-care is needed, although you will be asked to avoid sun and certain skin products for a period of time. It is important to follow your physician’s instruction and ask if you have any questions.

How many treatment sessions will it take before I see results?

Most pigmented lesions are removed within four to six treatments but some deeper lesions will require more treatments.

Tattoo removal, however, requires several sessions. On average, professional tattoos need 6 to 15 treatments, while amateur tattoos need 4 to 5 – this will still depend on the size of the tattoo, the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.

Hair removal will also require multiple treatments because hair follicle on your body goes through three stages: growth, rest, and hair loss. These phases repeat in a cycle that varies according to your own body chemistry, therefore, you’ll need several treatments to obtain maximum results.

What is the spacing before my next treatment?

For tattoo removal you need approximately 4 to 8 weeks of spacing before your next treatment, however, for other treatments you can do this in approximately 2 to 4 weeks apart.
