This versatile laser is commonly used to remove pigmentation like lentigo, “liver spots”, freckles or brown birthmarks. The Medlight can fade these common pigmented lesions in 1-3 sessions, and it is associated with 3-5 days of downtime.
Newer uses of this laser include Medlight Laser Toning which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation with zero downtime. It effectively treats dark eye circles and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This procedure needs to be repeated once every 2 weeks for 8 times.
The Medlight Q-switched Nd-Yag laser can also be used to remove unwanted tattoos, including eyebrow tattoo. It is considered one of the most effective ways to remove tattoos by selectively destroying the pigment colors. Because each tattoo is unique in the amount and density of the ink, the depth of the tattoo, its location on the body and a patient’s skin type, it is critical to customize the laser to the individual in order to minimize side effects such as scarring. That is why the number of treatments vary from 2 to 4 and up, spaced about 6 weeks apart, to safely, progressively and effectively lighten the tattoo.
