What It Is
The Medlite3 laser is one of the top cosmetic treatments available today. It can be used on all skin types and colours and is an effective treatment for the removal of hyperpigmentation and discolouration on the skin such as freckles, pigmented moles, sun spots, and Café au lait spots.
This laser technology has the ability to treat deep wrinkles and scarring at the deepest layers of the skin. With powerful laser energy that can penetrate deeply without causing damage to surface layers of skin and tissue, the dermis is stimulated to produce collagen and other vital proteins essential to healthy, youthful, and bouncy skin. The procedure can be completed in a short period of time, depending on your treatment area, and you will not experience dramatic downtime or long periods of recovery.
How It Works
The Medlite3 laser works by emitting light that destroys pigmentation, which will ultimately result in spots and skin imperfections to lighten, reduce in appearance, or disappear. The healthy skin and tissue surrounding the treatment area will remain unaffected and not get damaged, and the cells will be stimulated to produce natural collagen and elastin.
Patients describe the feeling similar to warmth in the deeper skin and a rubber band snapping against the skin. Many patients find this very tolerable and do not experience much discomfort. For maximum effectiveness, we recommend waiting until a fresh sun tan or until the effects of a self-tanning product fades completely before undergoing this laser treatment.
This laser treatment is very quick, simple, and easy– suitable for all skin types and skin tones. However, patients with darker skin tones may require more treatments at lower settings in order to avoid the risk of complications. Very minimal downtime is required, and your results will gradually improve over the course of 1 to 3 weeks. Subsequent treatments are usually scheduled at 6 week intervals, although this depends on your needs and will be determined during your consultation.
The Medlite3 laser can be an effective treatment on any area of the body. The most popular treatment areas here at Fairview Laser include the face, neck, chest, and hands.
This laser treatment works very quickly and efficiently, making it effective in the treatment of large areas such as the legs and back. The total treatment duration will depend on the size, location, and severity of the skin discolouration in the treatment area. This may take anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes.
The Medlite3 laser treatment is a highly effective treatment for targeting hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, lines and wrinkles, and even stretch marks without the need for incisions and significant periods of down time.
With this laser treatment, the body’s natural production of collagen is stimulated in the deepest layers of the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to minimize acne scarring to firm and restore youthful vitality.
After only a series of 3 to 6 treatments at monthly intervals, you will notice a softening of wrinkles and a bright, even skin tone that will continue to provide improvements over the course of several weeks after your first session. Your total results and amount of sessions required will vary from patient to patient depending on your skin condition. Dr. Jain will be able to assess this during your initial consultation where a custom regime will be recommended to you based on your unique skin condition.
