In 1992, ConBio launched the original MedLite laser, introducing PhotoAcoustic technology to the dermatology community – the use of high peak power and nanosecond pulse duration to target chromophores with a photomechanical action. This non-ablative Q-Switched Nd:YAG gave practitioners the ability to treat a wide range of aesthetic indications safely and effectively, with no downtime or patient discomfort.Since then, the MedLite has evolved, incorporating more sophisticated engineering, more power and greater efficiences. PhotoAcoustic technology is delivered through a superior flat-top beam profile – a hallmark of the MedLite laser – without spikes or hot spots that are prevalent in other Q-Switched Nd: YAG lasers.
Today, the MedLite laser is the workhorse of many aesthetic practices worldwide.
The Benefits of a MedLite C6 EO Q-switched Laser
A MedLite C Series laser is a safe, premium-engineered, easy-to-use aesthetic laser designed for versatility and effectiveness in a wide variety of applications. ConBio has made continual improvements to the MedLite laser since its introduction in 1992, increasing its power output, reducing its size, and introducing valuable features to maintain high levels of physician and patient satisfaction. Today, the MedLite C6 is best known for its PhotoAcoustic effect, a combination of high power and nanosecond pulse widths that deliver peak energy throughout the layers of the epidermis faster than the normal relaxation time of the tissue. The result is a safe, effective way to harness peak power.

Because of the versatility that comes with multiple wavelengths and nanosecond Q-switched technology, doctors are able to perform a wide range of aesthetic laser treatments, from wrinkle and acne scar reduction, multi-color tattoo removal, pigmented lesion (sun spot) removal, hair removal, and vascular lesion treatments.
Flat-Top Beam Profile
ConBio was the first company in the aesthetic laser market to create a truly homogenous flat-top beam profile for a Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser. The secret is in high-quality components – a carefully selected array of superior elements simply not found with inferior Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers that try to copy our technology.
The MedLite C6 beam is smooth and evenly calibrated, without “hot spots” or uneven spikes of energy typical in other lasers. As a result, the energy is delivered evenly from the perimeter to the center of the beam with no vacuoles or dead areas. This homogenous profile allows more efficient delivery of the energy and more pronounced tissue reaction under the dermis to better fragment the target chromophores.
The ultimate proof of a genuine flat-top beam profile is in the tissue reaction, consistent results, less complications and no patient downtime. Standard Gaussian beam profiles of other lasers tend to scatter on the skin’s surface requiring more shots to fragment the target chromophores causing unnecessary damage to the epidermis. The MedLite C6 delivers long-term, consistent flat-top capability, even after the laser is operated for long periods of time. The stabilized and consistent temperature of our lasers optimizes the output of the homogeneous beam.
The ConBio engineering team has the longest history in manufacturing a flat-top beam – and they conduct ongoing improvement analysis and evaluation to ensure we meet practitioner expectations of safety, reliability and superior performance.
What the MedLite C6 Laser Can Do For Your Aesthetic Practice:
A MedLite C6 EO Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is a valuable addition to any aesthetic practice. With a powerful, compact and reliable aesthetic laser, physicians can offer patients a greater range of treatments, regardless of skin type. The MedLite can help attract new patients – while expanding services available to existing patients. The C6 offers 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths. With the use of MultiLite Dye Laser Handpieces the Polymer Dye HP can convert the 532 nm wavelength to both 585 nm and 650 nm, for a total of four possible wavelengths across a variety of procedures.
MedLite C6 Laser Technology:
The MedLite C6 EO Q-switched laser utilizes the latest in multi-wavelength, articulated-arm-delivered laser technology. Representing the next generation of Q-switched technology, the MedLite uses an electro-optic (EO) high-speed shutter to produce nanosecond pulse widths. Peak energy is dispersed throughout the epidermis faster than the relaxation time of the healthy tissue. The result is a PhotoAcoustic Therapy effect, a safe, effective way to deliver energy precisely where it is needed. Contact us if you would like to learn more about the PhotoAcoustic action or any aspect of our MedLite C6 lasers.
MultiLite Dye Laser Handpieces for Four Wavelengths:
The ConBio MultiLite Dye Laser Handpieces are designed for the MedLite C6 and RevLite lasers. These dye-impregnated polymer rods convert the 532 nm wavelength to either 585 nm or 650 nm, providing a total of four wavelengths and significantly expanding treatment options for patients.
The backbone of the MedLite C6 is the Nd:YAG crystal, a solid-state material used for years in scientific and aesthetic communities. The ConBio MedLite C6 laser has the added benefit of being EO Q-switched, the next generation of Q-switching that produces high-speed repetition pulse durations.
AimLite (Aiming Beam Technology):
The AimLite system provides physicians with assistance in performing laser skin resurfacing and other procedures in discrete and/or delicate areas such as near the mouth and eyes. Specifically, the AimLite produces a red aiming beam that is co-linear with the treatment beam, enabling the physician to achieve accurate positioning of the beam for best results.
By storing energy between pulses, an EO Q-switched laser is able to deliver a more effective pulse output than traditional lasers. The EO (electro-optic) Q-switch acts as an efficient high-speed shutter, delivering nanosecond pulse durations. This technology allows the MedLite to produce peak power of over 200 megawatts with a 5 to 20 nanosecond pulse width. The result – a high power laser that delivers aesthetic solutions with a PhotoAcoustic effect.
