RevLite Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser
RevLite Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser technology has been approved by the FDA and has been studied in numerous clinical trials for successful treatment of melasma, unwanted tattoos and more.* Revlite uses PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) to deliver very narrow pulse widths at peak energy to vibrate and fragment pigment and tattoo ink.* This treatment is highly effective and uses less heat than similar lasers on the marketing, providing an increase in safety.*
What can I expect during treatments?
During the procedure, most patients experience a quick tingling sensation, as if rubber bands are being snapped against the skin. With tattoo removal, darker ink may absorb a bigger amount of energy, which can cause slight discomfort.* We can apply an anesthetic prior to the treatment to help you feel more comfortable. On average a treatment can last 10-20 minutes.
Is there any downtime or side effects?
The RevLite laser is safe, although there is a possibility of mild flushing that should resolve after 30 minutes.* Redness of the skin lasting may occur for a few days with an intensive treatment.* Downtime is minimal; most patients can resume their daily routine immediately after the treatment.* For tattoo and pigment removal, scabbing might form but will resolve after several days.*
How many sessions of treatment do I need?
In order to determine the number of sessions, your provider at the Dermatology and Laser Centre will correctly diagnose the issue. Then we will devise a custom plan just for you. If RevLite is recommended treatment, anywhere from 2 to 6 appointments may be recommended.* Certain deep lesions require more than 6 sessions and treatments are repeated every 1 to 4 weeks.*
