The Q-switched laser technology is used to eradicate annoying brown spots, sun freckles, and tattoos from your skin. The laser energy pulse used in the Q switch releases the pigment into the skin so that it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body.
Uses of Q-Switched Laser:
The Q-switched laser is beneficial in removing sunspots on the chest, arms, and legs. Q-Switched lasers are able to break small fragments of pigmentation and boost collagen production. Because their contact with the skin is lesser as compared to other lasers techniques, therefore Q-Switched lasers are known for not damaging the neighboring tissues.
With cutting-edge technology, Q-Switched lasers are used to treat the following conditions:
- Removal of Tattoos
- Treatment of a different kind of fungus
- Aging spots
- Spider veins
- Port-wine stains
- Skin rejuvenation
Types of Q-Switched Lasers:
There are several types of Q-switched lasers in practice. Mainly the crystal rods present inside the lasers distinguish the lasers. The rods permit the Q-Switched lasers to produce different wavelengths. These variable wavelengths control what the Q-Switched laser will be used for.
This type of laser is used commonly for non-ablative skin rejuvenation, darkened scars, and brown birthmarks. It is well known for its ability to remove a wide range of tattoo colors.
Ruby Laser is used to removing rare tattoo colors such as lime green and sky blue.
Alexandrite Laser is used for brown spots, sun spots, darkened scars, brown birthmarks, and melasma.
The Q-Switched Laser Tattoo Removal Process:
The Q-Switched Laser Treatment in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and Pakistan is used to remove undesirable brown spots, sun freckles, and tattoos from your skin. The laser energy sensations are like many tiny hot dots on your skin. The discomfort is greatly reduced by a stream of cold air focused at the spots during treatment. The tattoo removal process without anesthetic is very painful, so at SKN Cosmetic surgery clinic we always anesthetize the area before performing tattoo removal.
After the Q-Switched laser procedure, the immune system of our body will rinse out the crushed ink particles and cause the tattoo to fade. With regular treatment sessions, more ink will be shattered leaving the skin free of the tattoo.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
A single treatment usually removes more than 75-100% of an individual brown spot. A second or, on exceptional occasions, a third treatment, may well be required to entirely defuse the color.
What Happens After Treatment?
After the Q-Switched laser procedure, you might feel a burning sensation on the treated area for some minutes or up to a few hours. The treated spots become red and form a crust that must be covered to heal properly. The crust normally heals in 3 to 14 days depending on the location and how well you take care of it.
We endorse that you treat these with plain Vaseline or petroleum jelly and keep them covered with bandages until they are healed completely.
How Much Does the Q-Switched Laser Cost?
The cost of the procedure mostly depends on the area to be treated and the number of treatment sessions required. A single treatment costs, depending on the area. Normally 1 to 3 treatment sessions are enough to completely remove the spots.
