Revlite for Treatment of Acne and SCars

Posted by on Mar 25, 2017 | 1 comment

Skin House has always been an advocate of continuous learning.  A couple of weeks back, we were invited to update our knowledge and maximize the potential of our Revlite machine. Q-switched Nd:Yag laser have shown to be an effective treatment for acne scars and, in some cases, even acne.   With proper settings and understanding of what the machine can do, the treatment can go significantly positive for the patient. Revlite is a non ablative laser that uses photoacoustic technology pulse that heats the skin, causing enough damage to encourage the healing response of the skin.  The localized thermal damage causes an increase in the production of collagen and improves the appearance of scars. The treatment is basically painless. And the procedure can be performed for almost any skin type even patients with active acne.  Beyond reducing the appearance of the acne scars, Revlite lessens acne growth, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  The skin will look incredibly younger and more vibrant. We believe in providing the best service at reasonable prices.  We keep ourselves up-to-date with what’s hot and what’s not.  Soon, as an advocate in looking fresh in the morning even without makeup, we will be introducing semi-permanent makeup – 6D eyebrow embroidery or powder effect, eyeliner, and lip embroidery – all at impeccable style and reasonable prices.

Frequently Asked Questions – Revlite

Posted by on Jun 24, 2015 | 55 comments

Updated Photo from the same patient.  First one is after 1 session.  Next set is after 3 sessions (edited). What is Revlite Laser Toning or Skin Rejuvenation? Revlite is a Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser with 1064 nm or 532 nm wavelength that uses non-invasive light energy to gently stimulate skin’s natural collagen. Collagen is the glue that holds the body together. We would literally fall apart without collagen. Collagen in the skin breaks down as we age resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. Furthermore, years of sun exposure and other environmental factors result in pigmentation (like freckles, melasma and sun spots), redness, and enlarged pore size.   Revlite is the best way to treat these skin problems and is indeed proven to minimize pores, treat unwanted pigmentation, rejuvenate the skin, and enhance collagen regeneration and is often called as “Laser Facial”. Basically, Revlite Laser stimulates collagen production which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lessens or improves pore size, evens out skin tone, removes skin pigmentation and regenerates the skin. Revlite laser can also improve acne scarring and skin texture.   How does Revlite work?   Revlite laser does not affect the outermost layers of the skin and instead passes safely through the upper layers to stimulate collagen beneath the skin. Revlite Laser delivers results with no downtime, which is why patients are more inclined to avail this treatment over other ablative lasers.   5 to 10 treatments of Revlite Laser are normally recommended for maximum results at intervals of 2-4 weeks between treatments. After desired results are achieved, maintenance touch up sessions is recommended especially for treatments of melasma.   Who is Suitable for Revlite Laser Treatment? Patients with concerns in tattoos, pore size, skin pigments, skin texture and laxity will benefit from this procedure. Revlite is the gold standard for pigmented lesions which includes melasma and freckles. It is also being used for axillary pigmentation or any similar indication and laser facial to replace the monthly facials to remove blackheads, whiteheads and the like.   Revlite laser treatment can be used to rejuvenate the skin on the face, chest neck, hands and body. Patients of all skin types including tanned and darker skin tones, can be treated with Revlite. Read the contraindication in the consent form.   What is the Procedure for Revlite Laser Treatment?   Patients will be asked to read and sign a consent form after consultation before going through the treatment. The area of concern with be cleansed and patient will be provided with a protective eyewear. Revlite Laser treatment is fairly comfortable, but those who have low pain tolerance may request for local anesthesia or any pain medication.   Revlite laser treatment averages 15 to 30 minutes or until the skin turns slightly red.   What is the downtime? Initially, a mild erythema or redness is to be expected in the treated area. This usually goes away immediately after the treatment depending on the settings used. Patients may resume with normal activities except for heavy work out and use of tretinoin or other products that makes the skin sensitive to light. A post treatment...

The RevLite EO Q-switched Nd:YAG Laser from ConBio, A Cynosure Company is an evolutionary step in the Company’s MedLite® series of lasers, which transformed the Asian aesthetic industry 20 years ago. Today, the RevLite is not only a preferred gold standard among Asian physicians for pigmentary issues, it stands apart as a multi-wavelength aesthetic laser that treats a wide-range of indications.   Revlite Laser makes use of the PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP), which is gently delivered deep into the skin without harming the skin’s surface. This shatters the clusters of pigment resulting in an immediate noticeable lightening effect. Aside from underarm discoloration, it is very effective for age spots, melasma and tattoos too.   Underarms   Patients who used to pluck, wax or shave is always left with dark underarms.

Ultimate Brazilian Laser Hair Removal

Posted by on Feb 16, 2014 | 3 comments

Everyone who’s anyone has done Brazilian Waxing or Shaving at some point in their lives. Have you seen that episode at America’s Next Top Model when the girls took it all off?   Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.   Brazilian Laser Hair Removal of your Lady Parts is the “in” thing this millennium.  Even the likes of Rhianna and Demi Moore believe in keep it clean and simple.   Most beginners try out shaving because it’s cheap and painless. Despite these advantages, shaving is only a temporary solution. It may also cause pseudofolliculitis or commonly known as shave bumps and itchiness. Waxing is another popular procedure. But this method can be a little over the top painful. I know because I tried it myself. Waxing also needs some regrowth to be effective, which is ¼ of inch. It will take a couple of weeks or more to let it grow. For a temporary solution, it doesn’t seem worth it to pay 500 to 800 bucks a month for the rest of your life.   Thankfully, a more permanent solution is gaining rapid popularity. Brazilian laser hair removal has become so popular because of its speed and efficiency. In 6 to 10 sessions, you will immediately see considerable results.  Real LASER targets the melanin, the chromophore that gives color to the hair.  After your regular sessions, you can simply go back to yearly touch ups for those resilient hair or new regrowth. I myself am a satisfied customer of this treatment.   But is Brazilian laser hair removal for you? Every person’s skin is different thus the effectiveness of this treatment will differ for everyone. Some may also find that they are “non-responders” to this kind of treatment. This may occur if the incorrect machine is being used, the fluence is too low and the correct treatment time is not followed, or this treatment is simply just isn’t for you. So before anything else, the most important thing to do is to do your research. Don’t despair; I am here to guide you with my experience with laser hair removal.   My experience as a patient/ laser technician   There are many clinics that offer lowered, promotion service ipl, even diode unfortunately, with whitening. Don’t be fooled because they might be using using low-end machines which won’t yield the results you expect even after 8 to 15 sessions. Don’t lose faith though because there are clinics who invest on premium, medical grade laser hair removal machines like Lightsheer Duet, Soprano xl and GentleMax Pro (gentlelase or gentleyag).  But quality and brand alone don’t make an effective treatment, some of the efficacy is still dependent upon the skill and experience of the staff/doctors administering the treatment.   LightSheer/ LightSheer Duet – this diode technology is the gold standard in laser hair removal.  It has 800nm wavelength which penetrates the hair follicle down to the root.  It works by focusing the energy one area at a time.  The doctor or nurse can undergo around 2 to 3 passes for this treatment.  Upper Lip will take about 15 minutes, underarms around 20 minutes, and...
