What is Q Switched Nd Yag Laser?
Q switched Nd Yag laser produces a beam of energy at a wavelength of 1064nm.
This energy is absorbed by pigmented skin lesions such as freckles, age spots, etc. The laser will shatter the melanin pigment into microparticles. These microparticles are naturally carried away by the bloodstream and eventually removed from the body. The skin pigmentation is then lightened after a few sessions
What can Q Switched Nd Yag Laser treat?
- Pigmentations e.g. melasma, freckles, age spots, acne, hyperpigmentation and other brown birthmarks
- Acne marks
- Pigmented lesions
- Vascular lesions
- Facial Telangiectasia
- Enlarged Pores
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines
How many sessions are needed?
The number of treatments varies amongst patients. Depending on the types of pigmented vascular lesions, this procedure usually takes from 3 to 6 treatments. The pigmentation continues to fade in between each treatment.
Is there any downtime?
You can resume daily activities immediately after the laser. Some patients may only experience mild pinkness flushed on the skin which eases within a few hours.
