I had a consultation in Templestowe last year for freckle removal but I have lost the info. I am looking to sign up. The only thing is, my consultant told me down time would be around 10 days, but it would only require one session.
I don’t really want to take that much time off work. I have looked at other websites about Medlite that say no down-time is required but the sessions go over 6-8 months, rather than the one session my consultant told me about. I wonder is it a case of there being an option to have less intense laser impulses over a longer period? I don’t know how it works!
I wonder if VCI offer a longer number of sessions iwth no down-time after the session? If so, I’d love to sign up.
We commonly perform Medlite laser treatments at lower settings, such as demonstrated in this video with Dr. Natasha Moscato.
There can be an improvement in freckling and pigmentation in the treated areas, and further gains are had by repeating the treatment over a period of time. There is no downtime to this treatment, but I don’t believe the results are as impressive as the single higher energy treatment with the Medlite or Ruby laser. The primary use of the ‘Medlite laser facial’ (low level Medlite treatment) is to stimulate new collagen , improve skin texture, tone, and glow rather than being primarily for freckles.
