What is Cynosure Revlite?
Cynosure Revlite is touted as the next-generation q-switched Nd:YAG laser because it offers highly effective treatments for a wide array of medical conditions. Equipped with an extremely high-speed shutter, Cynosure Revlite delivers maximum treatment efficacy via nanosecond pulse widths, achieving desired cosmetic goals safely and in a quick manner.
How does Cynosure Revlite Work?
The Cynosure Revlite emits a highly controlled laser energy that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin. This in turn generates heat energy that is absorbed by the excess melanin (pigment that gives skin color). The absorbed heat then functions to break down melanin particles causing the skin imperfection while making sure not to cause any damage to the surrounding tissue. Over time, the remaining particles will be naturally eliminated by the body, leaving the treated area rejuvenated, radiant, and silky-smooth. The treatment also has the added benefit of boosting the production of collagen and elastin – two proteins that help maintain the integrity of the skin.
What Skin Conditions can Cynosure Revlite Treat?
Cynosure Revlite can address a broad range of skin conditions including:

What is a Cynosure Revlite Treatment like?
The treatment does not require any anesthetics and has no downtime. Many patients who tried the treatment report a tingling sensation as the laser passes through the target area. While mild to moderate redness can occur, they usually fade away after an hour without the need for any medical intervention. After the treatment, patients can resume their daily activities. However, they are advised to wear sunblock and apply light moisturizer over the treated areas for better cosmetic outcome.
How many Treatments are Necessary to See Results?
Ideally, 5 to 10 treatments of Cynosure Revlite laser at intervals of 2-4 weeks can achieve the best possible clinical outcome. However, some patients may require additional sessions depending on their skin condition, body area to be treated, and desired cosmetic goals.
