Q-Switched Nd: YAGLaser

A series of six, monthly treatments is recommended to get to achieve amazing results!

What is a Q-Switched Laser Treatment?

A Q-Switched (aka Q-Switched Nd-Yag Laser) Laser is used in various procedures: the laser is a beam of energy at a specific wavelength which is applied to the skin and is absorbed by coloured pigments such as freckles, sun spots, age spots, etc. in the skin.

The power settings of the laser can be set at different levels and frequencies to accommodate your specific condition and expectations.

What is it used for?

  • Pigmentation (such as freckles, sun spots, age spots, brown spots, melasma, birthmarks)
  • Acne marks
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Pimples and acne
  • Tattoo removal

How does it work?

  • Pigmentation – the laser energy is absorbed by the pigments (usually brown, or grey in colour). This pigmentation breaks off into smaller fragments and is naturally cleared away by the body and skin.
  • Acne marks – acne marks are caused by inflammation (the redness and pain) from pimples. The inflammation causes the skin to produce pigments. These pigments are cause of acne marks, which can be effectively removed with the laser.
  • Skin rejuvenation – the laser uses its energy to remove dirt, dead skin cells, oil and superficial facial hair. Take this as a quick, effective and multi-purposed medical facial!
  • Pimples and acne – the laser energy can also kill P-acne, which is the bacteria that cause pimples and acne. At the same time, the laser energy also shrinks the oil glands in the skin and helps with oil control. Pimples and acne also tend to be less inflamed after laser treatments and this reduces the amount of acne marks after a breakout.
  • Tattoo removal – tattoo inks are foreign pigments introduced into the body. Like natural skin pigmentations, the laser energy breaks down the tattoo ink and removes the tattoo.

What can I expect?

  • You can expect 70-90% clearance or lightening of your pigmentation.
  • Very high success for clearance of acne marks.
  • Prevention and treating of pimples and acne.
  • Less outbreaks in future.
  • Better oil control.
  • Fairer and brighter skin.
  • Complete clearance of tattoos (depending on ink colour).

Is it safe?

Q-Switched Laser Treatment is a gentle alternative, and requires less sessions than skin resurfacing procedures to achieve similar results. Thus, reducing the chances of side effects greatly. It does not cause the skin to become thinner.

Is it painful?

The laser energy feels like many tiny hot dots on your skin. The process is very tolerable.

Is there downtime?

The best part of the Q-switched laser is that it is effective with no downtime! A mild pinkish flush might be present for about 15mins after the laser. You can put on make-up immediately after a laser treatment and go straight back to work

Time saving: Usual Q-Switched laser treatments last for about 12-15mins and is done once every 3-4 weeks. This saves time compared to no-frills laser treatments which only last for 1-2mins each and you would be advised to do these treatments up to 3-7 times a week.

What else should I do when I go for laser treatments?

Avoid sun tanning for the next 7-10 days. Also apply an appropriate SPF 30+ sunscreen 

Can I get Q-Switched Laser done if I am pregnant?

Yes!

I’m on Roaccutane. Can I still do Q-Switched?

You can – as the Q-Switched isn’t an ablative laser, it doesn’t thin your skin and you can do it while you are on Roaccutane.

China Doll Carbon Laser Peel

The China Doll Laser Rejuvenation treatments targets acne, black heads, open pores, oiliness, mottled complexions, stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles, brighten and tightens the skin.

A Vitamin infused Charcoal Masque is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is attracted to the carbon particles and proceeds to destroy the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.

The procedure is completely painless with zero to virtually no downtime at all.

A series of six, monthly treatments is recommended to get to achieve amazing results!
