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.
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 photodamage, they can mean significant downtime for the patient RevLite is a non-ablative laser that uses PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) energy 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 an 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 setting penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen, and diminish wrinkles and acne scars. As the laser is administered, patients describe feeling a tingling sensation. A topical anesthetic is usually not necessary. Because non-ablative laser rejuvenation is a gradual process, four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart are typically indicated.
