What is it? TheNLiteŽ System for Wrinkle Reduction through Laser Collagen Replenishment is the latest in non-ablative wrinkle reduction treatments. It selectively stimulates collagen layers beneath the skin, to replenish new, natural collagen and reduce wrinkles from the inside out.
The NLiteŽ system for wrinkle reduction through laser collagen replenishment causes little to no pain and generally requires minimal to no post-procedure care. Some patients may experience a mild sensation or temporary reddening. The NLiteŽ is non-ablative and works without cutting, peeling, or abrading your skin, and you can have it done during your lunch hour
How Does The NLiteŽ System for Wrinkle Reduction through Laser Collagen Replenishment Work? The NLiteŽ system for wrinkle reduction through laser collagen replenishment uses a specific wavelength of yellow laser light to stimulate your own collagen growth. The procedure is non-ablative, which means it does not cut or burn the outermost layer of skin. Instead, the laser targets the layers of collagen beneath the skins surface. No anesthesia is necessary for this procedure, and normal treatment time is less than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the number of wrinkles to be treated. The majority of people cannot see any visible marks on their skin after the procedure. You can then return to your normal activities without feeling self-conscious or worrying if anyone can tell you have just had a cosmetic procedure. Gradually, over a few weeks, your new collagen forms and fills the voids causing wrinkles, reducing their depth. The result is smoother, younger looking skin.
What is NLiteŽ? NLiteŽ is a new approach to wrinkle reduction that uses yellow light to stimulate the body's own collagen production to reduce wrinkles gradually.
Is NLiteŽ FDA cleared? NLiteŽ was cleared for marketing by the FDA in August 2000 for the treatment of periocular wrinkles. NliteŽ was also cleared in January 2002 for wrinkle reduction. It is the first laser specifically cleared for marketing for non-ablative wrinkle reduction (for this purpose).
How many other Clinics are using NLiteŽ? Since the product was introduced in October 2000, there are more than 500 in the US, 200 in the Far East including Japan & China - Ours is the First in Ireland!
How long does it take to see the effects of the treatment? Patients experience a visible reduction in wrinkles and fine lines beginning about 30 days after treatment.
Is the treatment painful? There is little to no pain, no need for anesthesia, and generally minimal to no post-operative care. Patients say that they experience a slight warming of the skin that lasts for a brief period after treatment
Who should consider this treatment? NLiteŽ treatment is appropriate for adults of all ages, both men and women. Unlike traditional laser therapy for wrinkle reduction, which can be used only on fair skin, NLiteŽ can be used on most skin types. Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and continuous use of low-dose aspirin can or may be contraindications to the treatment. A full medical history including use of all medications will be discussed with your Laser Technician.
