What is MEDLITE C6?
The MedLite® C6 laser is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure for skin rejuvenation that uses a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. This laser utilizes multiple wavelengths and a Q-switched nanosecond technology, to effectively treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns. MedLite® C6 pioneered the use of PhotoAcoustic technology, the hallmark of which is high peak power and short pulse duration. By using high-speed energy waves that penetrate the skin in nanoseconds, the MedLite® C6 laser reduces the amount of heat in each procedure as compared to the more commonly used PhotoThermal laser treatments. MedLite® C6 is also used for treatments to eliminate unwanted hair and provide a targeted laser toning treatment for skin rejuvenation.
Acclaro uses the MedLite® C6, which is the industry’s gold standard for tattoo removal. It is a safe, non-invasive tool to improve the skin’s appearance and can be used for the following treatments and indications:
- Laser Toning (whole face rejuvenation) 20 mins - The Q-Switch ND-YAG 1064nm wavelength technology, which operates like a high-speed shutter, stores energy between pulses. The short pulses of micro-fine laser light are able to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, breaking down the old collagen layers and encouraging the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which results in firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This non-ablative skin resurfacing treatment also helps to smoothen acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles with minimal to no downtime or discomfort. Laser toning is ideal for patients who want a general rejuvenation of the skin, and the results are a clearer, brighter complexion with a more even skin tone, improved elasticity and refined pores.
- Anti-Pigmentation - Targeted Treatment, priced according to area size (small, medium and large). The MedLite® C6 safely targets the individual spots, gently breaking the pigment into tiny particles. They generate a PhotoAcoustic action against the chromophore (the part of the molecule that causes colour) that is used to fragment tattoo ink and lighten or remove pigmentation such as sun-spots, without harming the surrounding skin. You’ll notice the spot turning gray or white for a few minutes, a natural response of the skin as it absorbs the energy. The spot will then turn darker and sloughs off completely within one to two weeks. At this point, lighter skin starts to blend in as it heals, promoting an even toned appearance. treat concerns such as acne scars, sun-damaged skin, wrinkles and pigmented lesions, including Nevus of Ota, café-au-lait lesions, solar lentigines, uneven skin tone, and melasma.
- Laser Toning for other areas such as armpit whitening, neck - Laser toning with the MedLite® can produce improvements in skin tone by evening out pigmentation. Treatments can be combined with Peels or Microdermabrasion treatments for greater efficacy. Your doctor will be able to diagnose the most ideal treatment combination for the desired results after a personal consultation.
Multiple treatments would most likely be needed in order to create improvement of the affected areas. Results from the 15 minute laser procedure last about 3 to 4 weeks. Your skin should look finer, smoother, brighter and clearer. Over the longer term, though, the benefits are a slowing down of the aging process as damage caused by sun exposure and the environment are reversed and collagen and elastin levels are boosted.
Why choose the MedLite® C6 laser?
It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime. The MedLite® C6 laser also has a strong reputation as the “workhorse” of aesthetic lasers, due to its unmatched Precision Beam Technology, which is delivered through its homogenous, flat-top beam profile that gives an even energy distribution, without spikes or hot spots. As a result, this laser produces consistent results with fewer complications for reliable treatments time after time. Results from a 15 minute laser procedure last about 3 to 4 weeks and skin should look finer, smoother, brighter and clearer. Consistent and regular treaments can also result in a slowing down of the aging process as damage caused by sun exposure and the environment are corrected and collagen and elastin levels are boosted. The MedLite® C6 laser is also highly effective on almost all patient skin types, including Asian skin.
