How does laser facial rejuvenation and skin toning work?
The Medlite C6 is a non-ablative laser, in other words, it does not remove layers of skin. The Medlite has a PhotoAcoustic effect on the skin, meaning it has a combination of high power and nanosecond pulse widths that deliver peak energy throughout the layers of the skin faster than the normal relaxation time of the skin. This makes for a very safe and effective treatment. Lasers can penetrate much deeper than any skincare, therefore creating a dramatic boost in the look and feel of your skin.
Booking an appointment for laser facial rejuvenation and skin toning
Before commencing your treatment course with the Medlite laser it is important to have a consultation with our cosmetic nurse. During the consult, the nurse will gather essential information about your medical and skin history, and perform a thorough assessment of your skin so that we can provide you with realistic expectations and treatment timelines.

Before your Medlite treatment
At your initial consultation the nurse will provide you with all the information you need to know about your appointment. The most important thing to consider is that if you have had any recent sun exposure, are tanned, or are wearing fake tan, your appointment may need to be postponed.
What should I expect on the day of my treatment?
On the day of your treatment the nurse will thoroughly cleanse your face, apply goggles to your eyes for protection and commence the laser treatment. The laser itself only takes about 15 – 20 minutes to complete. There is very minimal discomfort associated with this treatment so no numbing cream or local anaesthetic is not required. Most people describe the sensation of the laser as a warm, prickly feeling.
What should I expect after my treatment?
After the treatment your skin may be slightly to moderately pink/red (depending on the strength of the laser settings used). This usually lasts between 20 minutes and 24 hours and can be easily covered with makeup. It is important to wear sun protection post laser as your skin will be slightly more sensitive to UV rays than usual, and also, so not to undo all the lasers good work!
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a course of 6 treatments to achieve best possible results. Some people will notice an improvement in their skin after just 1 treatment, but as the laser works on the deeper layers of the skin, your skin will continue to improve for months after treatment. After your course of treatments you may want to continue ‘maintenance’ treatments to maintain, and continue to improve the look and health of your skin.
Time between treatments
We recommend that you have a treatment every 3 – 4 weeks to achieve best results, quickly. Treatments can be spaced further apart if that is preferential.
