What can this laser do?
Treatment for Pigmented Lesions
As time goes on, almost everyone experiences the appearance of brown spots on the skin such as freckles and age spots, most commonly noted on the hands, neckline, and face. These spots are called pigmented lesions and can now be dramatically reduced or completely erased. The MedLite C6 Laser is one technologically advanced method of treating this condition. The specialized light produced by this laser is absorbed by the pigment, destroying it, and resulting in lightening or completely eliminating the spots. In most cases, only one to two treatments are required for optimal results.
Treatment for Severe Acne
Studies have shown that it can effectively reduce and eliminate severe acne. Treatment for acne targets a compound called porphyrin produced by the P.acnes bacteria (the bacteria related to acne). The laser targets porphyrin, leading to the formation of free radicals which ultimately eliminate the P.acnes bacteria.
Studies, featuring follow up assessments at three months, have shown that laser skin treatment expedites the healing of existing acne lesions as well as reduces the frequency and severity of new breakouts. Two treatments per week are recommended, totaling approximately 5 to achieve desirable results. Thereafter, treatments are performed on an as-needed basis.
MedLite C6 Laser treatments can produce improvements in skin with mild to moderate scarring from acne by stimulating collagen production, the support structure of the skin. At reflections Medi Aesthetics, MedLite procedures will be used in combination with other technologies such as Therapeutic Peels or Microdermabrasion and Medi Facials treatments to effectively treat this condition. Multiple treatments would most likely be needed in order to create improvement of the affected areas.
For those who may have changed their minds about the symbolism or content of a tattoo, the MedLite C6 Laser is the gold standard of tattoo removal without scarring. The light energy emitted from this laser passes into the skin and is absorbed by the ink of the tattoo, causing the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which are removed by the body’s natural filtering system. There are various types of tattoos including professional, amateur, and surgical tattoos. In addition, a great variety of inks may be used in a range of colors. All ink colors can be removed in most cases, with the exception of green and yellow, which in many cases are difficult to erase completely. Multiple treatments are normally needed to remove most tattoos depending on the amount, type and color of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin. In many cases, a 95% fading of the tattoo can be accomplished.
