What is MedliteThe MedLite C6 represents the latest evolution of the original MedLite Laser, introduced nearly two decades ago as a secure, non-invasive solution for enhancing skin aesthetics and addressing common skin-related issues. To this day, it remains the gold standard laser for skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal worldwide. Medlite C6 is a high-quality laser system engineered to utilize PhotoAcoustic energy, offering a gentle and secure approach to treating a wide spectrum of skin concerns.
What is PhotoAcoustic TechnologyThe distinguishing feature of the MedLite C6 Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is its utilization of PhotoAcoustic technology. This sets the C6 laser apart from others that rely on heat-based or photo-thermal energy. The high-speed light energy is emitted in a rapid series of nanosecond pulses, causing the C6 laser to gently vibrate and disintegrate targeted molecules deel within the skin. Furthermore, the laser energy encourages the growth of new collagen, effectively replenishing the collagen lost as part of the natural aging process.
How does Medlite work on AcneFor acne treatment MedLite C6 laser harnesses thermal energy to initiate a chemical reaction within the pores. This process effectively eliminates the acne causing bacteria, reduces pore size, and regulates oil flow. Additionally, the thermal energy penetrates the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. As a result, skin cells tend to undergo self-repair, ultimately leading to smoother, revitalized skin and a radiant, healthy appearance.
Medlite can treat the following skin concerns
- Acne or superficial scarring
- Overall skin rejuvenation
- Sun spots or sun damage skin
- Uneven skin tone, texture, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation
- Facial wrinkles
Who is suitable?
The suitable candidates for acne scar reduction include individuals dealing with a range of acne scars, whether they are superficial or deep in nature. The Medlite C6 is a safe and effective option for individuals of all skin types.
Does it hurt?
The Medlite C6 laser uses PhotoAcoustic energy to target the skin. The procedure is very comfortable. Patients will feel the pulses as quick tingling sensations, like very tiny rubber bands snapped against the skin.
Is there any downtime?
Laser acne therapy is gentle on the skin and doesn’t necessitate any downtime. As it operates by triggering a chemical reaction within the pores to eliminate the acne-causing bacteria, any side effects are generally limited to mild swelling and redness. These effects typically diminish within a few hours to one day after the treatment. When applying Medlite Laser on facial pigmentation and discoloration, it may take a little bit more time to heal. Fragmented pigments are removed through the skin’s natural immune system leaving the treated area with a more uniform color and better glow.
When will I see results?
Patients often experience a noticeable change in the texture of their skin following the initial treatment with the MedLite C6. Since collagen production is a gradual process, you can expect ongoing improvements in the following weeks.
How many sessions do I need?
Every patient’s treatment plan varies depending on their skin concerns, typically after completing 4-6 sessions, you’ll observe a significant enhancement, including reduced pore size, a more even skin tone, and a smoother texture. To sustain these results, many patients opt for monthly or quarterly touch-up sessions.
