What is Q-switched laser and how does it work?

The Q switched Nd:Yag laser is a  high energy , short pulsed (10-20 nanoseconds) laser .The energy of Q-switched Nd: YAG laser can be absorbed by the blue & black pigment in the skin lesion Or tattoo .The pigment will be fragmented so small that it can be disposed off by the body’s immune system .
The laser has the option of two wavelengths in one machine, these are: 532nm and 1064nm Nd:YAG.  These wavelengths add flexibility to the treatment options for tattoo as well as for the skin blemishes and lesions that the Q-Switch Laser has been engineered to remove.
Skin and cosmetology Clinic has chosen the Q-Switch Laser for its proven effectiveness arising from the combination of high power and nanosecond pulses that deliver peak energy to the epidermis & dermis faster than the normal relaxation time of the tissue. The result is a safe, effective way to control the laser energy and safely achieve desired results.

Expected Results from Q Switched Laser

Superficial lesions like freckles & lentigenes usually respond within 1-3 sessions. Deeper lesions may take 5-12 sessions. Laser treatment for tattoo may require 2-20 sessions depending upon its size & color.

Patch test can be done for deep lesions, large Tattoos & in all apprehensive patients.
