How does the Revlite laser remove unwanted pigments in the skin ? The Revlite laser is one of the most technologically advanced lasers for removing pigmented lesions. The laser removes these pigments with the energy of light. The specialised light produced by the Revlite laser is absorbed by the pigmented lesion. The unwanted pigment is the destroyed, thus removing or lightening the lesion.
What does the laser therapy feel like ? Many people describe the feeling of non-ablative laser therapy as a tingling sensation. The impact of the energy from the pulse of light is similar to the snap of a very thin rubber band. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but you may request a topical cream if you wish. For those having tattoo removal, some patient may fell mild discomfort as the physician traces the design because the tattoo ink absorbs the laser energy.
Is the process painful ? The Revlite laser emits light in very short pulses. The impact of the energy from the power pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. After the treatment, the area will feel similar to a light sunburn. Typically any discomfort will disappear within a day or so. After the redness clears, the skin returns to its natural colour and texture.
How many treatment sessions will it take to remove the pigmented lesion ? Most common pigmented lesions are removed within one to two treatments. Some deeper lesions will require more treatments.
Can the excess pigmentation come back ? Common pigmented lesions do not return. Some birthmarks may return after a period of several months to a year. However the procedure can be repeated.
What type of post treatment care is necessary ? The treated area may feel similar to a mild sunburn. Laser skin rejuvenation may cause a mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour or a day 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.
