How does laser facial work
Medlite C6 fires 10 shots of laser energy each second to destroy pigments and uneven skin tone while activating the skin’s inflammatory healing response that causes your body to create more collagen. Medlite C6 works slowly while providing gentle and safe treatments. It is tolerated very well by most skin types as it does not heat up the skin like other traditional lasers.
