Q-Switch Laser

A Q-switched laser is a high-intensity pulsed beam of energy that is applied to the skin 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 bodys immune system exposing progressively cleaner and more balanced skin tone.

Procedure for Q Switch Laser Treatment

Skin Preparation:
To protect your eyes from the laser, protective eyewear is used after a thorough cleansing of the skin.

Application of the Laser:
Brief, high-intensity light bursts are released into the treatment region by the specialized Q Switch Laser. These pulses do not damage adjacent skin, precisely targeting pigmentation or tattoo ink.

During the process, you may have a mild tingling or snapping feeling, although this is usually well-tolerated.

The length of the treatment varies based on the issue being addressed and the region being treated. For little regions, it may take a few minutes, while bigger ones may require longer periods.

There may be some transitory redness or minor swelling, but these should go away in a few days. It’s critical to adhere to your specialist’s post-treatment care instructions, which may include wearing light makeup and limiting sun exposure.

To get the best results, it’s usually necessary to schedule multiple sessions for weeks or months to give the skin time to recover in between treatments.
The process is accurate and fast, providing a clear resolution for a range of skin issues.

Q Switch Laser Uses
Pigmentation Correction:
It addresses melasma, freckles, and age spots, among other pigmentation issues, in an efficient manner. The skin has a more equal tone and clearer appearance by fading these darker patches.

Tattoo Removal:
Without causing damage to the surrounding skin, the Q Switched Laser dissolves tattoo ink for people wishing to reduce or remove their tattoos. It provides a route to skin free of tattoos by progressively fading the tattoo over several sessions.

Acne Scarring:
Smoother skin texture, increased collagen production, and attention to pigmented areas are the best ways to cure acne scars.

Sun Damage Repair:
Targets regions of excessive pigmentation brought on by extended sun exposure to address sunspots and sun damage.

Q Switch Laser Benefits
Safety and Accuracy:
The Q switch laser ensures a controlled and safe treatment by minimizing damage to the surrounding skin.

Enhanced Collagen Production:
To offer your skin suppleness and a youthful appearance, promote the synthesis of collagen in your skin.

Reduced Signs of Ageing:
To address wrinkles and fine lines, even out texture irregularities and promote skin rejuvenation.

Younger-Looking Skin:
This procedure encourages the creation of collagen, which smoothes out the texture of the skin and minimizes wrinkles and fine lines. After sessions, the skin looks more refreshed and younger.

Fast and Comfortable Process:
The procedure is typically rather quick and pleasant. Although some people may feel a little uncomfortable, most people can tolerate it well.

Minimal Downtime:
Following therapy, there is usually little downtime. There may be some temporary redness or swelling, but these symptoms normally go away after a few days, enabling people to quickly get back to their normal activities.
