Skin toning with Q-Switch Laser
Skin toning refers to the use of Q-Switched lasers for non ablative skin rejuvenation. In skin toning, multiple passes of low-dose Q-Switch Nd:YAG laser are delivered through a large spot size to induce sublethal injury
to melanosomes causing fragmentation and rupture of melanin granules into the cytoplasm.
This effect is highly selective for melanosomes and leads to overall skin brightness. Moreover, the subthreshold injury to the surrounding dermis stimulates the formation of collagen that results in tighter skin.
Skin resurfacing procedures use lasers to reduce the signs of aging and improve skin texture, laxity and tone. They are also used for scar and stretch mark reduction as well as for treatment of a variety of other cosmetic concerns.
Skin resurfacing can be achieved with either ablative or non-ablative lasers. Non-ablative resurfacing keeps the skin intact, stimulates collagen growth and tightens the underlying skin.
It is ideal for patients who prefer a milder treatment approach with less downtime and no risk of skin infection.
