MEDLITE C6 NdYAG LASER FOR PIGMENTATION & AGE SPOTS
The MedLite laser can safely remove pigmentation, sun spots by selectively targeting brown pigment. The laser delivers light energy in a series of very fast (nanosecond) pulses that shatter the dark pigment in the skin causing it to disperse and eventually clear, leaving a more even toned appearance. Since the energy is quickly absorbed there is minimal risk of damage to the surrounding skin.
Pigmentation, age spots and “liver” spots are brown spots that can appear on the sun exposed skin of your face, chest, hands, arms and legs. These brown spots can occur at any age and in individuals of all skin types but individuals with light skin are most susceptible. The daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen can prevent or lessen the likelihood of developing brown spots.
During the consultation, the doctor will assess your skin for suitability for the treatment and make his recommendations. Unlike some lasers, the Medlite® C6 laser is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities.
Helping to get rid of undesirable skin cells, the q-Switch Nd:YAG laser targets affected areas with high energy light. This removes the top layer of skin and allows for a new layer to grow over it. As the laser is able to penetrate deep into the skin without injuring the top layer, it can stimulate the skin to produce fresh collagen and essential proteins; these natural ingredients are vital for the skin to repair itself.Relatively painless and quick, this laser treatment is suitable for all types of skin and helps to lighten your skin tone. It also improves the complexion of your skin which will appear much fairer and smoother after treatment.
