All You Need To Know About RevLite Laser

Are you looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment that can reverse the effects of skin aging? Then, it’s about time to consider getting a RevLite laser treatment.

RevLite laser is a non-invasive and non-ablative laser treatment that makes your skin look better and more rejuvenated. It is considered one of the best laser procedures that balance out and correct the skin. As you age, your skin produces less collagen, leading to thinner and less elastic skin. The good thing about RevLite laser does not only reduces fine lines and wrinkles but also gently stimulates new collagen production which helps you achieve youthful-looking skin.

Where RevLite is from?

RevLite laser is a highly advanced Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. According to Dr. Alexander Berlin, a dermatologist in Arlinton, Texas, “the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser was among the first non-ablative lasers to be utilized for facial resurfacing and photorejuvenation” (1). The first Q-switched lasers produce a photoacoustic effect in tissue and have demonstrated minimal skin changes. Eventually, a new Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, called RevLite laser, has been developed that generates both photothermal and photoacoustic effects in tissue.

This laser has been proven effective for many years. Since 1993, the efficacy and use of Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers in skin rejuvenation and resurfacing have been reported in numerous studies. A study several years ago found that “Q-switched Nd:YAG laser may play a role in the treatment of wrinkles,” reported by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc (2). Moreover, “the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm) effectively treats black tattoos with an excellent cosmetic outcome,” Dr. Suzanne Kilmer, a clinical professor at the University of California, explained in a study (3). Dr. Suh and colleagues, dermatologists from Seoul National University Hospital in South Korea, reported that “Q-switched Nd:YAG laser may be a beneficial alternative tool for the treatment of several benign pigmented lesions including freckles, lentigines, and unilateral lentiginosis” (4). Many more studies have proven the efficacy and safety of Q-switched Nd:YAG laser treatment for improving and treating skin pigmentation (5).

How does RevLite work?

One of the best features of the RevLite laser is its Photoacoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) (6, 7). RevLite laser is composed of high-speed energy waves. These energy waves are released throughout the upper layers, underneath the skin, in a series of nanosecond pulses (at around 5 nanoseconds). This destroys targeted pigments and inks in the dermis layer of the skin. Then, these broken pigments and inks are drained through the lymphatic system. This process results in improved skin pigmentation, skin tone, texture, etc.

RevLite laser is 100% safe because high energy pulses remain concentrated at the targeted pigment which results in minimum damage to surrounding tissue. Moreover, it is a non-ablative laser treatment which means it works by heating the underlying skin tissue (without causing physical damage to the surface of the skin). Unlike ablative laser treatments, RevLite laser treatment is a popular choice because it presents no downtime and less degree of risk. RevLite laser treatment also gently stimulates your skin in producing new collagen to replace the collagen you lost as you age and also eliminates dark spots of aging.

Who RevLite is best for?

RevLite laser treatment is becoming popular nowadays since more cases show that it is an effective non-ablative laser treatment for skin rejuvenation, resurfacing, and pigmentation. Since 2008, RevLite laser treatment has been shown to improve photodamaged skin and collagen production. Dr. Berlin and colleagues (2008) found that there is decreased elastosis and increased new collagen deposition after RevLite laser treatment on photodamaged skin (1). Dr. Niwat Polnikorn, a clinical professor, suggests that RevLite laser treatment improves hyperpigmented acne scars and skin rejuvenation (8). Additionally, it is also an effective method to treat melasma (9) and improve pigmentation (5).

RevLite laser is best recommended to patients with concerns in various skin conditions such as:

  • static and dynamic wrinkles
  • skin pigmentation (epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions, sun spots, or other dark patches of skin)
  • scars (resulting from acne or injury)
  • vascular conditions
  • loss of skin tone
  • dull skin
  • tattoos

This laser treatment is compatible with all skin types and can be used on the face, chest, neck, hands, and body. To achieve the best results from RevLite laser treatment, a good candidate should be physically healthy, do not smoke, and dedicate their efforts to protecting their skin from further sun damage (10).

How many times do you need to receive RevLite laser treatment?

To achieve the best results of RevLite laser treatment, it is normally recommended to receive 5 to 10 sessions at 2 to 4 weeks intervals between treatments. Only minimal discomfort such as warm and mild tingling sensation can be experienced in this procedure. There are no post-care requirements, however, the application of sunscreen is recommended to avoid sun damage and to maintain an even and youthful complexion.


In summary, RevLite laser is a non-ablative laser treatment procedure that is 100% safe, with no downtime and side effects. If you are one of those people who want to improve their skin tone and texture, remove their fine lines and wrinkles, treat their pigmented skin lesions and sun damage, get rid of acne scarring, or get an overall skin rejuvenation and resurfacing, RevLite laser is great for you.
