Q–switching refers to the technique of making the laser produce a high-intensity beam in very short pulses In Q–switched mode, Nd:YAG produces 2 wavelengths, one in the infrared range (1064 nm) and the second beam of 532 nm wavelength which is useful for superficial skin lesions. .
Q-switching is a method for obtaining energetic pulses from lasers by modulating the intracavity losses. It is a technique for obtaining energetic short pulses from a laser by modulating the intracavity losses, the so-called the q factor of the laser resonator.
Q switched Nd: yag laser is a high-intensity beam that removes unwanted tattoos and pigmented lesions (sun spots, freckles, etc.) It emits a highly focused beam of laser light, which passes harmlessly through the upper layer of the skin and is absorbed primarily by the tattoo ink or the excess pigment within the lesion. As the light is absorbed, it is quickly converted to heat. The sudden rise in temperature within the treatment target fractures the ink or pigment into tiny particles. Tattoo ink fragments are carried away by the lymphatic system, while pigmented lesions are naturally shed from the skin one to two weeks after treatment
The energy in the waves destroys the tissue by heating it. As a result, it encourages new cells to replace the damaged cells. It stimulates new collagen formation, thereby tightens the collagen which improves rhytides (wrinkles) and other signs of sun or photo damage
We at Clear skin centre use for most commonly for laser toning and carbon peel, and for removal of:
|Nevus of ota (Birthmark removal)|
|Under eye dark circles|
|Acne w P.I.H|
During the procedure:-
During the procedure, a patient has warm sensation on the skin which is bearable.
During the procedure, it gives bursting of crackers like sound.
No need of anesthesia during the procedure.
A single machine can be used effectively to treat various skin problems.
Energies & spot sizes can be adjusted in order to treat the specific lesion.
Painless, non-invasive & office hours procedure without any downtime.
Can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to get best possible results.
We at our centre use Helios lll an USFDA approved Q-switch laser and most popular in laser industry. It has patented 4G toning technology, and provides faster and more effective laser toning.
