Q-Switched Laser Skin Tightening & Toning

A laser is a device that emits a beam of high intensity, high energy light at certain light wavelengths depending on the laser medium contained within the device. Laser Toning is the act of passing low-energy Q-switch Nd:YAG laser multiple times quickly over facial skin (at 1064nm wavelength).

The low-energy laser passes selectively weakens melanocytes and partially destroys some melanin pigments. The heat from the laser passes also concurrently stimulates collagen production within the dermis. There is ultimately tightening of the skin. The laser gently vaporizes the very superficial layers of the skin.

In short, a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is essentially a laser designed to treat pigments. We however have modified the usage to harness its’ gentle nature to perform laser toning for skin tightening and rejuvenation.

 

  • Neodymium-doped Yttrium aluminium garnet is a crystal used as a laser medium, hence the name Nd:YAG.
  • Nd:YAG laser has a wave length of 1064nm and has the capability to reach deep layers of skin tissue compared to other types of laser.
  • Q-switching is the technique of modifying the laser wavelength to make it shorter, usually 532nm. The short-wave length laser is useful for treating superficial skin pigmented lesions.

Clients should actively avoid the sun and apply sunblock regularly. Avoid whitening / brightening products or peels until the skin has full healed which takes about 3-5 days.

Features and benefits of regular Q Switched laser treatment:

  • Brightening of skin, glowing skin
  • More even skin tone
  • Refined pores
  • Reduce sebum production
  • Firm and tightened skin
  • Improvement in active acne symptoms
  • Reduced fine facial hair

Laser toning is suitable for anyone who desires skin rejuvenation. Due to the very low laser energy used, clients can even do laser toning every day.

As the wavelength used is long (1064nm), it is safe for all 6 skin types. However, we advise to defer laser toning for clients who have been sunburned or has ongoing skin allergy or severe acne. Laser toning is not suitable for clients with photosensitive epilepsy and pregnant or breastfeeding.

Turn up for your laser toning appointment without your makeup. This saves our makeup removal time and you also save on your makeup. The doctor needs to assess your skin anyway prior to the procedure.

 No anesthesia is required prior to laser toning as it is very gentle on the skin. After photo taking, we proceed with the laser which will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. During the procedure, the face, lips and neck will receive several passes of laser.

Immediately after procedure, a skin calming gel and sunblock is applied. Some clients may have mild facial redness that usually subsides in a few hours. For any laser procedure, be it aggressive or gentle, good sun protection regime is always advised.

Clients should actively avoid the sun and apply sunblock regularly. Avoid whitening / brightening products or peels until the skin has full healed which takes about 3-5 days.
