Want an alternative to a regular facial? Try the Revlite Laser. The Revlite Laser treatment is perfect for people looking for a quick and safe procedure to rejuvenate and revitalize their skin, which is bombarded by UV rays, dust and pollution daily. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific light energy wavelengths to gently stimulate natural collagen growth. This FDA-approved treatment also helps in skin rejuvenation, removing irregular pigmentation, reducing uneven skin tone, as well as minimising pores and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser skin rejuvenation has become the procedure of choice among busy top celebrities and working adults who want a better solution to sun-damaged, aging or acne-scarred skin, but do not have the luxury of taking time off from work to recover from more intense procedures.
Revlite Laser gently and effectively stimulates long-term collagen remodelling by using a non-ablative laser (Q Switched Nd:YAG), which uses PhotoAcoustic energy to vibrate and re-organize the collagen scaffolding.
The Revlite Laser treatment is comfortable, safe, simple and fast. Before the procedure starts, the skin will be cleansed. For safety purposes, laser-protective goggles will be placed over the eyes. During the procedure, the laser beam will be directed towards the treatment area, where the deeper layers of the skin will be heated.
How it works
Melanin is the pigment that determines skin and eye colour. As part of aging, an excess amount of melanin accumulates over time, especially in tropical countries such as Singapore that is exposed to a lot of sunlight daily. This excess melanin can lead to uneven skin tone, the formation of age spots and visible sun damage.
The Revlite Laser emits a low-level heat that penetrates the skin, and the excess melanin will absorb the heat. This absorbed heat functions to break down particles of melanin into smaller particles. This will make the age or sun spot appear speckled.
When this happens, the smaller particles of melanin are recognised by the body as waste. The body will act to make the speckles rise to the surface of the skin and flake away. This is part of the body’s natural waste elimination process. Over a period of time, the remaining particles will flake away from the skin’s surface, leaving it clear and smooth.
Due to the wavelength used, your natural skin colour is usually not affected.
Revlite Laser is a laser skin rejuvenation procedure. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not affect the outer layers of skin, so there is no downtime required. The treatment uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Safety and Side Effects
The Revlite Laser procedure requires no anaesthetic, and because it is a non-invasive procedure, no downtime is required too. However, some pre-treatment numbing cream may be used to minimise any discomfort. Many people who have tried the treatment have described the feeling of the laser on their skin as a tingling sensation. The effects may vary from patient to patient. In some patients, there might be mild to moderate redness in the treated area, which usually fades away within an hour. After the treatment, patients are advised to apply light moisturiser and sunblock over the treated areas, and to avoid direct exposure to the sun.
