WHAT IS THE MEDLITE C6™ LASER AGE SPOT REMOVAL PROCEDURE?

The Medlite C6™ laser age spot removal procedure is a wonderful laser technique which can remove unwanted age spots in one to two treatment sessions. The QS 532 nm laser is used to remove these spots.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE? HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?

Treatment with the Medlite™ C6 laser age spot removal device takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of age spots to be treated. Usually 1 to 2 treatments sessions are required to see a 50 to 95% improvement. These are spaced out every 4 weeks.

WHAT IS THE PRE CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE MEDLITE C6™ LASER AGE SPOT REMOVAL PROCEDURE?

Typically, we ask our patients to discontinue the use of retinoic acid products and glycolic acid products for 3 to 4 days before your treatment. In addition, we will sometimes prescribe an antibiotic medication to minimize the risk of secondary infection. It is also wise to stay out of intense sunlight (or tanning beds) beginning 1 week prior to your treatment.

HOW MUCH DISCOMFORT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE TREATMENT?

There is mild discomfort with our laser age spot removal procedure. A topical anesthetic is all that is usually required. Topical anesthetics are applied for 30 to 60 minutes and covered with Saran Wrap™ to enhance the cream’s effectiveness. Pain usually is described as a very mild burning. Cool compresses and medications such as Motrin™ or Advil™ can readily help to alleviate any discomfort.

HOW LONG DOES THE SKIN TAKE TO HEAL?

Laser age spot removal is minimally traumatic to the skin. Crusting and slight bruising is all that is noted post op. Depending on the location, these processes can take up to two weeks to heal. Once the skin has fully healed, you can then undergo another treatment. It is important to note that mild hypopigmentation can develop at the treatment site.

WHAT ABOUT POST OP CARE?

We recommend a post laser skin care system. Please remember to stay out of intense sunlight during the week after your laser age spot removal treatment has been performed. Concealing makeup, e.g. Jane Iredale™, can be used to minimize the color changes of healing if the age spots are in a noticeable location.

HOW LONG WILL THE BENEFITS FROM LASER AGE SPOT REMOVAL LAST?

The benefits from the laser age spot removal procedure can last for several years. Repeat treatments are sometimes required to further enhance your results but this is determined on a case by case basis. In our experience, patient satisfaction has been extremely high for this procedure. Results, however, may vary from patient to patient.
