No-Downtime Skin Rejuvenation
At Ultimate Aesthetics we use the next generation Revlite Q-switched Nd:Yag laser, used by doctors and dermatologists throughout the world.
Unlike any other machine in the market, Revlite™ uses a patented technology called Photo-Acoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) energy for gentle skin rejuvenation by deep collagen stimulation.
Suitable for superficial and deep pigmented lesions
The Revlite™ Laser is a multi wavelength system Q switched ND Yag laser technology from Cyanosure using the 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths for powerful, non ablative skin resurfacing treatments.
The 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths of Revlite™ effectively target both superficial and deep pigmented lesions in the skin, making it an ideal Laser for treating almost all types of skin pigmentations.
This procedure offers minimal discomfort and no- downtime skin rejuvenation.
Revlite™ is able to treat a variety of conditions such as :
• Laser Peel : Skin resurfacing to help with anti-ageing and superficial pigmentation
• Laser Facial / Toning : Deep collagen stimulation, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Pigmented lesions such as Freckles, Sunspots and Age Spots
• Hormonal Pigmentation (melasma)
• Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The 1064nm Wavelength of this laser makes it a very safe choice for treating darker skin types.
The Revlite Laser Facial
This is a gentle skin rejuvenation treatment that uses non-invasive light energy to gently stimulate the skin’s natural collagen, which in turn will reduce pore size and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It also works on the skin pigments as well, but breaking down deep hormonal pigment and resulting in a more even skin tone.
The Treatment utilises the Specialised PhotoAcoustic Technology which allows for quick full face treatment with no down time and minimal discomfort.
This laser facial help with :
• Deep collagen stimulation
• Enlarged pores
• Active acne breakouts
• Hormonal pigmentation (melasma)
• Improved tone and texture of the skin
The treatment takes about 10-15mins and is best performed in a series.
The Revlite Laser Peel

There is some facial redness for about 3- 5 days after the procedure which can easily be covered by make up after
Often it is done every 6-12mths.
The cost is $500 per treatment.
Carbon Laser Peel (The China Doll Laser Peel)
A carbon peel is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with minimal-to-zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
A thin layer of medical grade liquid carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. The laser is then applied to the skin. When the laser is passed over the area, it vaporizes the carbon, removing dead skin cells and the carbon from the depths of the pores, contaminants and oil with it. It takes a 15micron layer of skin off, leaving an amazing glow.
This treatment provides several benefits, including :
Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking any absorbed material with it.
As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.
Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling tighter and glowing.
Acne and Oil Destroying:
The heat produced by carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands (oil producing glands), resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.
Frequently Asked Questions
- +Should I use topical anaesthetic while providing this treatment?
Topical anaesthetic may be administered to increase patient comfort, although this is not routinely needed

The treatment feels like a strong pricking sensation. Small areas will take about 10-15mins to treat but larger areas can take longer, such as a sleeve tattoo.
- +How long is the downtime and how will I look after?
There is often no downtime with most of the Revlite S1 procedures, although some patients may experience some erythema and crusting of certain lesions which resolve in 5-7 days on the face and up to 14 days on the body.
