Dr. Darm Revlite Technical Overview
This multi-purpose laser provides industry-leading treatments for skin resurfacing (including wrinkle reduction and acne scar treatment), multi-color tattoo removal, vascular, dermal and epidermal pigmented lesion removal, and hair removal — for all skin types.
RevLite® features a proprietary variation of the PhotoAcoustic engineering pioneered by HOYA ConBio nearly two decades ago with the original MedLite Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers. The hallmark of PhotoAcoustic technology is high peak power and short pulse duration. This generates a PhotoAcoustic action against the target molecule, whether it's collagen, tattoo ink or pigment. Forcing energy at such a high rate, the molecules vibrate and shatter, without any harm to the surrounding skin. This PhotoAcoustic action is different from the traditional photothermal effect that many lasers use to target chromophores with bulk heat. A flat-top beam profile delivers high energy evenly over the skin's surface, which significantly minimizes epidermal injury. RevLite takes this PhotoAcoustic action one step further with PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) — a unique dispersion of maximum energy that delivers very narrow pulse widths at up to 60 percent more power. The unique nanosecond pulse configuration cause a dual collagen stimulation action -- delivering both a PhotoAcoustic effect and a subtle photothermal effect from the pulse delivery. Aesthetic treatments with RevLite are safe, patient-friendly and require no downtime, epidermal cooling or messy gels.
RevLite is a safe, fast, effective method for skin rejuvenation, whether used as a one-time treatment or as part of an ongoing Anti-Aging Maintenance regimen. The PhotoAcoustic "shockwaves" reorganize the skin's collagen into parallel arrays of compact fibers, giving skin an overall tightening and inducing ongoing dermal remodeling, without any downtime or messy cooling gels. In a recent clinical study of patients treated with the RevLite over 6 bi-weekly sessions, the PTP mode showed superior results in improving wrinkle amount and depth, appearance of pores, number of whiteheads and skin laxity-- with significantly lower patient discomfort than standard Q-switched technology. After an initial treatment series of 6 to 8 sessions, doctors report that patients frequently opt to come in for monthly or quarterly "touch up" sessions to maintain smooth, radiant, younger-looking skin — while continuing to build collagen long-term.
RevLite is built on the same foundation as the MedLite, known as the goldstandard device for multi-color tattoo removal. RevLite harnesses high peak power to gently shatter the tattoo ink particles, which are gradually removed by the body's natural processes. Optional MultiLite handpieces allow physicians to convert RevLite's 532 nm wavelength to either 585 nm or 650 nm. Including the core 1064 nm setting, that's a total of four wavelengths to tackle multi-color tattoos. Award-winning, proven technology treats even stubborn tattoos with virtually no risk of scarring or pigment changes.
Epidermal & Dermal Pigmented Lesions
RevLite's multiple wavelengths make it ideal for treating a wide variety of pigmented lesions on all skin types, including brown "age" spots, solar lentigines, café-au-lait lesions, melasma, Nevus of Ota and aberrant Mongolian Spot. Most lesions can be removed quickly with little to no risk of hypopigmentation.
Acne Scar Reduction
The nonablative skin resurfacing benefits of the RevLite are ideal for treatment of acne scars, providing immediate and long-term benefits. Clinical studies† show that Q-Switched Nd:YAG treatment of mild to moderate atrophic acne scars showed a significant improvement in skin smoothness of 23% after one treatment, increasing to 39.2% six months later. Patients see visible improvement in less than five sessions.
