Q-Switch Laser

Q-switched lasers are designed to target the pigment in the skin.

A type of laser treatment that can address a variety of skin conditions, this procedure is predominantly used for the removal of tattoos. 

 

Many people use body art to mark their identity, and tattoos are a popular choice. Tattoos can symbolise an item of significance in a person′s life, or create a statement about their personality. However, when a person comes to regret the inking they have, but feel they are stuck with it as a tattoo is designed to be permanent. 

 

The Q-switching mechanism used in this device delivers short bursts of energy that are extremely powerful. This energy level makes Q-switch Nd:YAG laser an effective procedure for removing tattoos, as it can break up even the most difficult colourings. Patients will be required to wear some eye protection for the duration of this treatment.

 

The handheld device will be placed against the skin’s surface and moved around the treatment site as required. A series of treatments may be needed to eradicate the inking and results will depend on the colouring depth. 

 

The Q-switch laser can also be used alongside a carbon peel, known as the ″dark crystal peel″. The carbon laser peel utilises a 2-part process. A carbon mask is applied to the face to exfoliate the skin and remove any debris or other impurities. When this gets dry, the laser can then be administered.

 

The laser will heat the carbon to help peel the skin. The result is glowing skin that is tighter and firmer through enhanced collagen production and skin cell regeneration.

Frequently Asked Questions

This treatment is most commonly used for people affected by oily skin, persistent acne, frequent breakouts of blackheads, enlarged pores and dull skin. The procedure eliminates bacteria and inflammatory properties and shrinks the sebaceous glands to reduce the amount of sebum produced. 

The side effects of this treatment are usually minor. A person may experience some redness, swelling and itching at the treatment site, immediately following the procedure and can be soothed using cooling packs. Uncommon effects can see a discolouration of the skin if the pigment cells become damaged, or blistering the skin. Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic can offer advice to anyone who experiences rare complications.

The depth of the pigment will determine how many treatment sessions will be needed. The amount you may require can vary greatly from between 5 and 20 sessions. These procedures will need to be performed around 6 or 7 weeks apart. 

This procedure can cause some post-treatment sensitivity to the skin in the form of redness and swelling. For this reason, it may not be recommended that you undergo this procedure if you have specific skin disorders or inflammation. Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic can discuss these contraindications with you. 

Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic will discuss the realistic expectations that this procedure can produce and advise against this treatment if they cannot deliver your desired outcome. Particular medication can affect this procedure’s processes, and it is not recommended for the complete removal of scars and wrinkles.
