How It Works
PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse by RevLite SI
RevLite SI's unique Q-switched engineering produces very rapid, short pulse widths of energy, limiting the healthy tissue's exposure to thermal build-up for safe, fast and effective treatment. This PhotoAcoustic effect forces energy that vibrates and shatters target molecules. The energy is delivered throughout the epidermis faster than the normal relaxation time of healthy tissue, minimizing epidermal injury and eliminating the need for skin cooling. PhotoAcoustic action goes even further with PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP), a unique pulse dispersion of maximum energy, harnessing up to 60 percent more power* even at larger spot sizes – to penetrate more deeply and cover more surface area. Clinical studies indicate that the PTP mode is more comfortable and effective for skin resurfacing with larger spot sizes than single Q-switched pulse.1
Flat-Top Beam Profile
PhotoAcoustic technology is delivered through a superior, flat-top beam which distributes energy evenly over the skin's surface safely and efficiently. The ultimate proof of a homogenous beam profile is in the tissue reaction – consistent results, less complications and no patient downtime.
Multiple Wavelength Versatility
High Repetition Rate MultiLite Dye Handpieces extend the wavelength capabilities of RevLite SI to include 585 nm (yellow) and 650 nm** (red). A total of four wavelengths provides versatility for multiple treatment applications on all patient skin types.
532Lite Handpiece allows small spot size treatments (1.2 – 3 mm, 0.1 mm increments) at low fluences; ideal for treatment of tattoos and pigmented lesions on skin of color.
