MedLite Laser Treatments
Although there are many types of lasers available in the marketplace today, the MedLite C6 Laser is used at Rejuvené because of its efficiency and effectiveness on specific conditions. The MedLite is one of the most advanced lasers available for removal of tattoos, areas of pigment such as age spots, and specific birthmarks. It delivers short, rapid, high intensity pulses of light with maximum capability for destruction of melanin targets. The combination of the short wavelength and rapid light pulses results in maximum removal of pigmented areas while preserving surrounding skin. The following provides a short description of conditions that can effectively be treated by the MedLite C6 Laser.
For those who may have changed their minds about the symbolism or content of a tattoo, the MedLite C6 Laser is the gold standard of tattoo removal without scarring. The light energy emitted from this laser passes into the skin and is absorbed by the ink of the tattoo, causing the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which are removed by the body's natural filtering system. There are various types of tattoos including professional, amateur, and surgical tattoos. In addition, a great variety of inks may be used in a range of colors. All ink colors can be removed in most cases, with the exception of green and yellow, which in many cases are difficult to erase completely. Multiple treatments are normally needed to remove most tattoos depending on the amount, type and color of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin. In many cases, a 95% fading of the tattoo can be accomplished.

Treatment for Pigmented Lesions
As time goes on, almost everyone experiences the appearance of brown spots on the skin such as freckles and age spots, most commonly noted on the hands, neckline, and face. These spots are called pigmented lesions and can now be dramatically reduced or completely erased. The MedLite C6 Laser is one technologically advanced method of treating this condition. The specialized light produced by this laser is absorbed by the pigment, destroying it, and resulting in lightening or completely eliminating the spots. In most cases, only one to two treatments are required for optimal results.
Other methods of removing pigmented lesions, such as PhotoRejuvenation, or PhotoFacial, are also effective but may require more treatments to achieve the desired results. Removal of spots with MedLite C6 Laser may produce darkened or scaly areas where the treatment has been performed which lasts from a few days to 2 weeks. Depending on your own individual needs, one method of treatment may be preferred over the other.

MedLite C6 Laser treatments can produce improvements in skin with mild to moderate scarring from acne by stimulating collagen production, the support structure of the skin. Many times MedLite procedures will be used in combination with other technologies such as Peels or Microdermabrasion treatments to effectively treat this condition. Multiple treatments would most likely be needed in order to create improvement of the affected areas.
