N LITE/ REGENLITE LASER
The N-Lite laser treatment works in 3 ways: killing the bacteria, stimulating new collagen and reducing inflammation.
WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS
With the laser we are able to treat the face, back, chest and abdomen if patients are suffering from acne on these areas. The N-Lite laser can also be used to help to heal the skin, for example a cold sore, papercut or fairly new scar and skin conditions such as Rosacea and Acne. The laser also allows the practitioner to treat other various concerns for example warts and veins, and it can be used for rejuvenation to help target lines and wrinkles in conjunction with other treatments. However, at Epilium & Skin we only generally recommend the use of our N-Lite laser to treat Acne/ Ageing skin concerns.
The light of the laser kills acne bacteria that cause the infection that can result in lesions and spots appearing on the skin. We treat the whole face to ensure the bacteria is killed over the whole area reducing the risk of infection spreading and further breakouts from occurring. N-Lite works by stimulating the skins natural healing response. It was first used predominantly to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; however, it soon became apparent to practitioners that the treatment was also reducing active acne breakouts on patients. The N-Lite does this is by targeting the bacteria which causes acne and also stimulating the skins immune system, helping to reduce inflammation.
The N-lite laser is known as a treatment which can successfully treat wrinkles and reduce/control active acne. The treatment is almost painless however you may feel a warm sensation as the laser passes over the skin.
The treatment is not suitable for the following patients:
- Breast feeding
- Taking prescription medicine
- Direct sun exposure within the last 8 weeks.
After your first treatment it is possible to experience breakouts a few weeks after, this is because the laser can draw out the acne making it appear worse as the immune system is trying to systematically fight the bacteria.
To see the best results, we recommend at least 3 treatments, one every two weeks for acne and every four weeks for anti-ageing. Everyone is different and you may require more or less based on your skins needs.
