At Skin Essentials we use Q-Switch Lasers to treat pigmentation, melasma and sun damage on the face as a significant number of our patients either have ethnic skin of colour, or have concerns related to melasma/ pigmentation.
This versatile laser can also be used with different wavelengths for tattoo removal and China Doll Facials/ Laser Peels.
When the Q-Switch laser is used to treat your pigmented lesions including age spots, freckles, sunspots and some birthmarks, it targets the melanin, which gives skin its colour, in the superficial layer of your skin. When the pigmented lesion absorbs the light energy from the Q-Switch Laser it gets converted into heat. This process destroys the target without harming the surrounding skin and is safer than any other forms and types of energy based devices for removing pigmentation.
We also use Q-Switched Lasers to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate your face via a laser toning facial. This treatment can improve acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and reduce pore size by stimulating collagen production.
