How does the treatment work?
The RevLite features an advanced PTP setting (PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse) that gently penetrates the skin to stimulate new collagen. The result is a smoother texture and a reduction in wrinkles and acne scars.
How long does the treatment take?
Non-ablative laser treatments using PhotoAcoustic energy are quick. A full face treatment takes about 20 minutes.
What does the treatment feel like?
Many people describe the feeling of non-ablative laser therapy as a tingling sensation. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but you may request a topical cream if you wish.
Is the procedure safe?
When used by experienced practitioners, lasers are extremely safe. The energy is very selective and targets only the collagen fibers or pigment. Advanced lasers that use PhotoAcoustic energy can treat all skin colors safely – including darker and tanned skin.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Laser skin rejuvenation may cause a mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. No specific post-care is needed, although you will be asked to avoid sun and certain skin products for a period of time. It is important to follow your physician’s instructions and ask if you have any questions.
How many laser treatments will I need?
Although you will notice results after your first treatment, non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process. You typically need four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart. Many patients choose to return for regular treatments to maintain their great results. Just as they schedule hair color and nail appointments, many women schedule laser treatments every one to three months as part of their ongoing skincare routine.
