Q-Switch Yag Laser

Q-switched Laser Treatment. The Q-switched laser is used to remove unwanted brown spots or sun freckles from your skin. The laser energy pulse, which is in billionths of a second, releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body.

    FAQ

    Most frequent questions and answers
    HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?

    The Q-Switched YAG is a versatile laser that offers different wavelengths to target a variety of skin conditions. When treating pigmented lesions such as sun spots, age spots, freckles, pigmentation and some birthmarks, it targets melanin occurring superficially in the skin. With another more deeply penetrating wavelength, it can also be used to remove dark tattoos and deeper birthmarks. When used for rejuvenation, Q-Switched lasers stimulate collagen production improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pores and acne scarring.

    WHAT WILL THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE DURING THE PROCEDURE?

    For laser toning, Q-Switched lasers are usually not painful as the energy is low, so generally no anaesthetic is required. The laser treatment is quick and offers no downtime for rejuvenation purposes and generally patients can return immediately to normal activities. With tattoos and deeper marks, higher energies are often required and local anesthesia may be needed with a more significant healing phase.

    WHAT CAN THE PATIENT EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

    After the treatment the area will feel similar to light sunburn. Typically any discomfort experienced will disappear in one to two days.
