Collagen Replenishment/NLite Laser
NLITE™ LASER COLLAGEN REPLENISHMENT
The first selective non-ablative laser system cleared by the FDA for reducing wrinkles by tightening the skin.
Non-ablative technologies stimulate collagen fiber syntheses to reduce wrinkles and lax skin. The final effect is clearly more subtle than that seen with invasive cosmetic treatments.
- Non-invasive and does not require general or local anesthesia.
- Non-ablative and does not require post treatment wound care.
- Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes.
- No pain!
AM I A CANDIDATE?
If you have wrinkles on the face that are apparent with your face at rest and you are not thrilled with them, then yes you are a candidate. NLite™ is for all ages and skin type. The only patients who are not a candidate would be someone with active rosacea, undiagnosed lesions, recent herpes outbreak, severe active acne, unstable diabetes or auto-immune system disorder or a photo sensitive skin condition.
HOW DOES NLITE WORK?
NLite™ laser passes through the epidermis (skin’s surface) targeting blood vessels causing a thermal (heating) effect on the skin. This process releases growth factors, which stimulate fibroblasts (collagen production). Most collagen production is gradual and collagen will continue to be produced over a course of approximately 3 to 4 months. NLite™ can be done once or several times. It depends on the individual, the severity of the wrinkles and on the results you are trying to achieve.
