Removing Stretch Marks, Tattoos, Birthmarks, or Age Spots (Liver Spots) with the Medlite 6 Laser
The Medlite 6 Laser is a high-tech way to remove tattoos or eliminate brown discoloration caused by certain birthmarks or age spots also known as "liver spots", as well as diminish the sight of stretchmarks.
Known as nevi (singular "nevus"), moles and other birthmarks are benign pigmented spots or patches of skin that range in color from tan, brown and black (moles) to red, pink or purple (vascular nevi, such as strawberry hemangiomas or port wine stains). Though most birthmarks are harmless, they may develop into cancer.
A professional should examine moles exhibiting any of the following warning signs immediately:
- Larger than six millimeters.
- Itches or bleeds.
- Rapidly changes in color, size or shape.
- Have multiple colors.
- Is located where it cannot be easily monitored, such as on the scalp.
Depending on their depth, location and color, as well as the patient's skin type, age and other factors, treatment for benign but unattractive birthmarks may take the form of laser or pulsed light therapy, or surgical excision.
The Medlite 6 laser treats all colors of a tattoo. Dark (blue, black) and red inks resolve the best. Oranges and purples usually fade as well. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, and additional treatments are needed to produce significant fading. The tattoo will completely disappear in many cases.
The Medlite 6 laser effectively and quickly removes brown spots that are commonly known as "liver spots" or "age spots". The laser can also treat certain flat, brown birthmarks.
The Medlite 6 laser can improve the appearance of stretch marks.
