The Difference With RevLite SI
RevLite SI provides some of the most effective treatments for popular aesthetic indications with its advanced features.
The RevLite laser system acts by emitting a powerful beam of specialized light that targets in pigments, age spots, tattoos and promotes collagen remo deling without harming the surrounding skin, producing exceptional results.
One of its most outstanding features is its ability to be used is such a wide variety of applications. This advanced laser enables our dermatologists to treat all skin types with the most effective results for patients to look and feel better.
What To Expect
RevLite SI is a Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser with 1064 nm or 532 nm wavelength that uses non-invasive light energy to gently stimulate the skin’s natural collagen.
The selective energy only targets collagen fibers or pigment. The addition of the PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) feature on the RevLite laser enables our dermatologists to treat large spot sizes across all skin types, even dark and tanned skins, with the highest degree of safety, efficiency, effectiveness and comfort.
This advanced PTP setting penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen, and diminish pigments, wrinkles and acne scars. As the laser is administered, patients are bound to feel a tingling sensation. A topical anesthetic is usually not necessary since non-ablative laser rejuvenation is a gradual process.
Administered by our experienced dermatologists, your RevLite laser experience is bound to be extremely safe.

Frequently asked questions about RevLite
For Skin Rejuvenation
How does the treatment work?
The RevLite features an advanced PTP setting (PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse) that gently penetrates the skin to stimulate new collagen. The result is a smoother texture and a reduction in wrinkles and acne scars.
How long does the treatment take?
Non-ablative laser treatments using PhotoAcoustic energy are quick. A full face treatment takes about 20 minutes.
What does the treatment feel like?
Many people describe the feeling of non-ablative laser therapy as a tingling sensation. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but you may request a topical cream if you wish.
Is the procedure safe?
When used by experienced practitioners, lasers are extremely safe. The energy is very selective and targets only the collagen fibers or pigment. Advanced lasers that use PhotoAcoustic energy can treat all skin colors safely – including darker and tanned skin.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Laser skin rejuvenation may cause a mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. No specific post-care is needed, although you will be asked to avoid sun and certain skin products for a period of time. It is important to follow your physician’s instructions and ask if you have any questions.
How many laser treatments will I need?
Although you will notice results after your first treatment, non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process. You typically need four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart. Many patients choose to return for regular treatments to maintain their great results. Just as they schedule hair color and nail appointments, many women schedule laser treatments every one to three months as part of their ongoing skincare routine.
For Pigment Removal
What causes these unwanted spots?
Melanin is what gives our skin its color. The amount of melanin in your skin determines if you have a light or dark complexion. Pigmented lesions are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin, usually as a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays.
How does a laser remove unwanted pigment in the skin?
Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers produce a special wavelength of light that is absorbed by pigmented lesions. The light vibrates and shatters the pigment, breaking the melanin into micro-particles and lightening the lesion. You’ll notice the spot turning gray or white for a few minutes, a natural response of the skin as it absorbs the energy. The spot will then turn darker and slough off completely within one to two weeks.
What types of pigmented lesions can a laser remove?
Lasers work well to remove brown age spots, freckles and other brown birthmarks, such as cafe-au-lait spots and Nevus of Ota. Your physician will identify your specific type of lesion and discuss the treatment for your condition.
Do lasers remove my normal skin pigmentation also?
No. The laser light is specifically designed to target the dark concentrations of melanin. After the concentrated deposit of melanin is removed, some whitening could occur. However, your body’s natural regenerative system will replace the normal melanin over a period of time, returning the skin to its natural color.
How many treatment sessions will it take to remove the pigmented lesion?
Most pigmented lesions are removed within one to two treatments. Some deeper lesions will require more treatments.
Is the process painful?
The PhotoAcoustic energy of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser emits light in very fast, short pulses. The impact of the energy from the pulse of light is similar to the snap of a very thin rubber band. No anesthesia is needed. After treatment, the area will feel similar to a mild sunburn. Any redness will disappear within a day or so and the skin will return to its natural color.
Can the excess pigmentation come back?
Common pigmented lesions do not return. Some birthmarks may return after a period of several months to a year. However, the procedure can be repeated.
What type of post-treatment care is necessary?
Usually, an antibacterial ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area immediately after treatment. The area should be kept clean with continued application of any ointment given to you by your physician.
For Tattoo Removal
Can multi-colored tattoos be removed fully?
ConBio’s RevLite laser is the gold standard for tattoo removal and has four wavelengths to remove all colors of ink. Some colors however, are more difficult to remove such as sky blue and green and may require additional treatments. Additional factors like the type of ink, age of the tattoo, location on the body also impact removal.
How many treatments does it require?
On average, tattoos take between 5 and 15 treatments. Factors such as color, type of ink, skin color, location, and age of tattoo effect how many treatments you will need. When you come in for a consultation we can look at your tattoo and review all of this with you.
Will the tattoo lighten with one treatment?
One of the first three treatments will lighten the tattoo. Some people will see this after one treatment and for others it may take longer. Everyone responds differently.
If the tattoo looks healed can I come in before six weeks?
It takes four weeks for the body to start breaking down the ink and even though the tattoo may appear healed, it is not. The laser breaks the ink down into smaller pieces and then the body has to get rid of it. This process takes 4-6 weeks so getting treated sooner than that will not make the tattoo remove any quicker and can also put you at risk for scarring.
What are the limitations after treatment?
Limit the amount of physical activity that you do and sun exposure for the first 24 hours. If the body gets too over heated it can cause the tattoo to blister. Showers can be taken but only if they are luke warm and use mild soap.
Can I have just a piece of the tattoo removed?
Yes, the laser is accurate and can remove unwanted parts of tattoos. I have permanent make-up (lip liner, eyeliner, eyebrows). Can you remove it? Yes we can remove these but there is a risk associated with it. Some cosmetic inks have metallic bases and when the laser hits it, it can turn black. Once this darkening occurs, it takes much longer to remove. A test spot is always done first.
Does the laser cause scarring?
Most of the time no, but 99% of avoiding scarring that is being compliant with aftercare instructions. If you are not compliant and develop a blister it could cause scarring.
How much does it cost?
The price of the treatments depends on the size of tattoo you are having treated. We will have to take a look at the tattoo to see the exact size of it because we do not charge for open space. Most people tend to overestimate the size of their tattoo.
Can I lighten the tattoo to have another one put on top?
Of course, depending on the colors of the tattoo we recommend have 3-5 treatments done to lighten it before having a cover up tattoo put on. You should wait six weeks between your last treatment and when you put on the new one.
Does it hurt? What should I expect it to feel like?
This procedure is slightly more uncomfortable than getting a tattoo, however it is very fast. Most treatments take between 25-60 seconds.
Will I blister and scab afterwards?
Blisters and scabs are normal. You should not pop or pick at them. If it is bothering you feel free to call us to come in and have it drained. If the blister pops on its own, keep the skin over it and cover with a healing ointment and gauze. This will promote healing and prevent scarring.
Does insurance cover it?
Sorry but insurance does not cover this procedure. We do have other payment options that we can discuss with you in the free consultation.
I got my tattoo one week ago. Can I have it removed right now?
Unfortunately no. You must wait six weeks after a tattoo has been put on to start the removal process.
