Other IPL & Laser Technologies > Conbio Hoya Medlilte C6 protocol

Logged on to check out the Webinar this evening on the new Conbio Hoya C6 and Revlight.
The webinar was informative. The take away protocol was

Skin rejuvenation: 6-8mm 3-4 J 2 passes over the full face (90 second treatment) til mild erythema.
532 nmKTP laser: indicated for epidermal lentigines
1064 ND YAG laser: indicated for dermal lentigines, melasma, or PIH treatment.

I am currently using a Fotona 1064/532 Q Switched Laser using similar protocol. However I am not having success with lentigines using the 532 nmKTP. Hence I only use the 1064 ND YAG for dermal lesions and rely on my Sciton 2940 erbium for epidermal lesions and warts.

Would someone please comment on 532 nmKTP treatment on lentigines. What parameter and what end point are everyone using on their 532 KTP laser?
Can the Q switched 1064/532 laser also be used in hair removal? I never knew of that indication for this type of laser.

I have had difficulty treating lentigines with my Medlite C6. The company suggests 3 mm at 1-2J/cm2 or 4 mm at 0.4-2.0J/cm2. This is for lentigines and cafe au lait spots, and using common sense (darker skinned patients should be treated with the 1064 nm wavelength, and the darker the pigmented lesion, the less energy is needed). The endpoint should be a light glazing according to HCB. Nearly everyone I've treated with the C6 were either undertreated, or had side effects. I have seen moderate purpura which then becomes post-inflammatory erythema for 5 months (this happened in 2 skin type II patients), and in one patient the purpura became post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (skin type III) that lasted 6 months. You can use a little clear cup that they sell with the laser, it is supposed to blanch the area so there's less hgb absorption but I think you could probably just use a glass slide instead. I find it much easier to treat the lentigines either with my Starlux Lux G (Palomar) or the Alexandrite component of my GentleMAX - the results are much better and there's a much lower risk of discoloration.

I am interested in hearing people's experience with tattoo removal with the Medlite C6. I've found that using the parameters given by the company, I am treating patients in 8-12 treatments instead of the 4-8 the company claims. I'd love to hear the opinions of other C6 users. Here's what I usually do:

Skin type I-II Starting energy 6 mm 3.8J/cm2, treat every 4-8 weeks depending on healing time
2nd tx 6 mm 4.1J/cm2
3rd tx 4 mm 4J/cm2
(increased by 0.5J/cm2 with each treatment unless there's a minimal tissue effect - I increase until I see purpura or glazing).

Skin type III-VI - watered down version of the above.

LaserPA,

I have the Revlite instead of the C6 but they are basically the same machine. I think you can be more aggressive with it. I would use the settings you are using only if I have a person with a very black solid tattoo. Otherwise I would generally use 4.5 on my first treatment and increase with each treatment. This is on a Fitz 1-3.

For solar spots, I do use the hoya.
i dont use ktp as it causes too much PIH.

I use 1064nm, 8mm spot size power about 1.5.-1.8
instead of using the regular focal point, I retract a bit to such a distant that the beam size has gone down from 8mm to 3-4mm, so you are looking at about 10-12 inches away from the skin and fire.
Do use 1 hz, ss( single shot). This way, the beam will remove the spots. It will not cause PIH.
It is a slow process, but it worth your time as it gives pretty good result.
The end point is immediate whitening of the spots + little epi subside superficial bleeding.
10 min later, you will see scab.
Good luck. Hope this help.

Remember, dont be too aggressive. Patience is golden here. 2- 3 x ss per spot will do the trick.

pigmented lesions with the Fotona or Medlite

532nm 2 or 3mm 1-2 hrtz 0.8jls to 2.8jls no more than 3 pulses per lesion. Do a test spot. Look for a light white frosting or a crispy cream glaze look on the lesion. Complete white frosting is more aggressive with a higher risk of Hypo-pigmentation. After treatment ice for 10 minutes keep out of sun keep moist and do not pick.
