MedLite C6 Laser & Oral Supplement
Whitening treatments in aesthetics refer to procedures or therapies aimed at improving the appearance of the skin by reducing hyperpigmentation, dark spots, or uneven skin tone, thus leading to a brighter and more radiant complexion. These treatments are often sought after by individuals who wish to address concerns related to skin discoloration, sun damage, age spots, or melasma.
There are many factors like pollution, harmful UV rays from the sun, stress, and improper diet which can damage your skin and give you an imbalanced skin tone.
What is the cause of hyperpigmentation and dark spots?
Hyperpigmentation and dark spots occur when there is an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color.
The main factors contributing to hyperpigmentation and dark spots include:
– Sun exposure
– Hormonal change
– Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
– Genetic and age
– Skin disorder
– Trauma or irritation

Laser treatments devices target melanin to break up dark spots and promote skin rejuvenation.
Chemical peeling exfoliate and remove the top layers of the skin, promoting the growth of new, smoother, and less pigmented skin.
Dermal fillers or injectables can sometimes be used to improve the appearance of hollow areas or dark circles, which may contribute to an uneven skin tone.
Using sunscreen with a high SPF and avoiding excessive sun exposure helps prevent dark spots from worsening.
Can laser lighten skin permanently?
Laser treatment for skin brightening can be used to lighten or even out skin tone, but the permanence of the results can vary depending on the type of laser used and the specific condition being treated.
It’s essential to note that some laser treatments are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of pigmentation or to address issues like melasma, which can cause patchy pigmentation. While these treatments can offer long-term results, maintaining those results may require ongoing skincare practices, sun protection, and periodic touch-up treatments.
MedLite C6 Q-switch Nd:YAG Laser for skin lightening:
How is the procedure done?
The Medlite C6 q-Switch Nd:YAG laser emits high energy light towards the desired area, destroying unwanted skin cells which then allows skin to generate new cells to replace the old ones. It is designed to target pigment cells in which specific wavelength are absorbed preferentially by pigments (melanin) and the resultant heat will cause damage to the cells containing pigment.
How does the MedLite laser work for skin whitening?
These destroyed pigmented cells will then be cleared from the site resulting in lightening of the pigmented site whilst whitening other areas of the skin. The laser is able to penetrate deeply without injuring the top layer of skin and also triggers the production of collagen and vital proteins which are essential for healthy and youthful skin.
Is the laser procedure painful?
The MedLite C6 Laser emits light in short pulses. The impact of the energy from the power pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band.
No downtime is required for this treatment and you can resume your daily routine immediately after your session. Your skin may experience some mild redness but this is temporary and should subside in 30 minutes.
Whats is the duration of the treatment?
Medlite C6 Q Switch laser whitening treatment is a relatively quick procedure and shall take less than 10 minutes.
When can I see the result?
Results will gradually improve after a period of several months, with a noticeable improvement after each session. Most individuals are recommended a treatment cycle of 8 to 10 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart, but this may vary depending on your skin condition.
Antioxidants are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, B, C, E, glutathione and flavonoids that protect your skin against free radicals. Free radicals are molecules in the environment that can cause damage to different components in cells. Environmental factors like radiation from the sun, pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and other toxic chemicals are known to trigger the formation of free radicals.
Antioxidants neutralize those free radicals to protect your skin from damage. But that’s not all, certain antioxidants also boosts your collagen production to tighten fine lines and smoothen your skin tone. Antioxidants are best at hydrating your skin, calming irritation, keeping skin soft and supple. On the other hand, free radicals and frequent sun exposure can also trigger changes in our skin’s melanin production, causing dark spots and uneven skin tone. By reducing inflammation, scavenging these free radicals, antioxidants would reduce photo damage, lighten hyperpigmentation and dark spots, prevent premature aging and brighten your overall skin complexion.
