The RevLite Q switched laser is a wonderful nonablative laser used for skin rejuvenation. The system’s unique Q-switch pulsing structure emits short bursts of energy to the target, helping to prevent over-heating in the skin. By delivering maximum power in short timespans, it acts like an aggressive laser without any deep damage.
The primary wavelengths used are the 532 nm and 1064 nm. These two wavelengths have differing penetration depths and properties making the treatment very versatile.
The laser will emit short bursts of laser energy to the skin. Your physician will treat the skin until there is slight erythema (pink coloration) or a slight whitish change to the pigmented spots. The erythema will last from 20 min to a couple of hours and make-up can be worn over the treated skin.
Being a Q-switched laser, the very short, high energy pulses impart a photomechanical effect on the pigmentation. This photomechanical effect helps fragment pigment to help minimize epidermal and dermal pigmentation.
The PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse also helps re-organize the skin’s collagen into parallel arrays of compact fibers therefore giving the skin an overall tightening effect and inducing dermal remodeling.
The Q switched laser treatment uses both wavelengths to target all layers of the skin. The 1064nm penetrates deeply, thus stimulating new collagen production and targets deep dermal pigmentation. The 532nm penetrates superficially, and targets sun damage and superficial pigmentation.
Short pulse energy is not absorbed by melanin therefore it can be used on all skin types and on tanned skin during the summer, unlike Alexandrite or Ruby lasers that are only safe and effective on lighter skin tones,
As well as stimulating the fibroblasts to produce more collagen for rejuvenative benefits, light pigmentation can also be treated. This monochromatic green light is best
suited for fairer Fitzpatrick skin types, I and II.
One to three sessions are recommended four weeks apart but good results can be attained with one treatment.
The 532 wavelength helps minimize pore size, even out skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
