The Effect of Age and Sun on the Skin
As the skin ages and the sun wreaks its havoc, the subdermal collagen and elastin support network breaks down. Lines and wrinkles appear, age spots surface and the facial structure soon loses its fight against gravity. Creams and serums can only do so much to fix the breakdown of the skin's matrix, pigmentation problems and other effects of the sun. Laser therapy, on the other hand, employs a precise wavelength of light energy to go where topical treatments can't travel. In fact, studies demonstrate that laser therapy helps create a rejuvenated appearance, smoother texture, even skin tone and decreased pore size.
RevLite: Maximum Results with Minimal Downtime
In the past, physicians only used ablative lasers to wound the top layers of the skin. While these aggressive lasers are still used to treat deep wrinkles and advanced photo-damage, they can mean significant down-time for the patient. RevLite is a non-ablative laser that uses PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) evergy for quick full-face treatment options with no downtime and minimal discomfort. As new collagen synthesizes, lines and wrinkles diminish while the facial structure appears and feels firmer and smoother.
What to Expect
The RevLite laser is extremely safe when administered by and experienced practitioner. The selective energy targets only collagen fibers or pigment. The addition of the PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) feature on the RevLite laser allows practitioners to treat large spot sizes on all skin types, even dark and tanned skin, with the highest degree of safety, effectiveness and comfort. This advanced PTP selling penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen, and diminish wrinkles and acne scars. As the laser is administered, patients describe feeling a tingling sensation. Because non-ablative laser rejuvenation is a gradual process, four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart are typically indicated.
Freckles, Sun Spots, Unwanted Pigment - Treating Stubborn Signs of Aging
Brown spots on the skin may often be perceived as a sign of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Freckles may have been cute when you were a kid, but now these melanin deposits are looking more like the aging remains from too many days lounging in the sun. Freckles, sun spots, liver spots - whatever you call them, they're technically know as "pigmented lesions" and the form when melanin concentrates in one are of the skin, usually as a result of overexposure to the sun's UV rays.
The RevLite Breakthrough
Advanced laser technology with Q-Switched Nd:YAG wavelengths offers a proven method to permanently remove most brown spots, freckles and unwanted pigment. The light vibrates and shatters the pigment and breaks the melanin into micro-particles, lightening and removing the dark, aging spot. Most pigmented lesions disappear after 1 to 2 treatments; deeper lesions may require more treatments.
What to Expect
The RevLite emits light in rapid, short pulse at high peak energy for maximum efficacy and comfort. The impact feels like no more than the snap of a thin rubber band. As the light shatters the pigment and diffuses the lesion, the spot will turn gray or white for a few minutes as the skin absorbs the energy. Any post-treatment discomfort will feel similar to a mild sunburn, and any redness will dissipate within a day or two as the skin returns to its natural colour.
