Q-switched laser, also known as Q-switched Nd Yag Laser is the most recent technology in the world of dermatology that is used to treat hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, uneven complexion, and can even remove permanent tattoos!
How does it work?
A quality-switched laser (Q-switched) is a high-intensity pulsed beam of energy that is applied to the skin at a specific wavelength. This energy/light lasts merely a billionth of a second and is absorbed by the pigments in the skin such as acne spots, age spots, freckles, scars, etc. which break down into smaller fragments and then naturally disposed of by the body.
The power and intensity of this laser can be customized and set to various frequencies/levels as per the condition of the skin, the procedure, or the results that are expected.
Benefits of Q-switched Laser Treatments
Contrary to the common belief, a treatment done with the help of Q switched Nd Yag Laser technology is completely safe and non-invasive. The most popular one is the Q-switched laser toning which improves the appearance of the skin in both the short term and the long term.
What’s better is that this treatment is suitable for all skin types and renders instant skin rejuvenation in just a single session. Patients can notice up to 75 to 90 percent reduction in their spots and pigmentation! Moreover, the results last for years if the skin is properly looked after.
What all is it used for?
Apart from reducing pigmentation and scarring, Q-switched laser is also used to:
- Tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
- Heal the skin tissues internally to smoothen out the surface.
- Eliminate dead skin cells for an even complexion.
- Deeply cleanses/rejuvenates the skin.
- Stimulate collagen production for younger-looking skin.
- Decrease hair growth (with several sessions, the hair can be removed permanently as well).
- Remove permanent tattoo.
What to expect after a Q-switched laser treatment?
Even though there is no downtime associated with Q-switched Nd Yag Laser, your skin might turn a little grey or white for a few minutes after the treatment. People with sensitive skin might even face a little redness in the treated area for some days which is completely normal and nothing to be worried about. Gradually, this pigmentation gets settled and blends with the surrounding skin.
Laser treatments work by using the body’s own healing mechanism, so the skin takes at least 7 to 10 days to heal completely.
