Laser Q-Switched technology has the ability to deliver deep impact to the skin, targeting the epidermis and dermis (the outermost layer and the layer between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissues of the skin).
Laser Q-Switched has 2 wavelengths: 562 nm and 1,064 nm. The 562 nm wavelength is suitable to target the epidermis while the 1,064 nm wavelength can target up to the dermis of the skin.
For hyper-pigmentation treatment, our doctors will use the 562 nm wavelength. The 1,064 nm wavelength is usually utilized for tattoo removal, birthmark removal...
When Laser Q-Switched is used for treating hyper-pigmentations, the laser beam will seek out the discoloration in the skin to gently shatter the unwanted pigment.
At ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC, the treatment interval for Laser Q-Switched is 4 - 5 weeks. This is the best interval to ensure safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
Other than treating hyper-pigmentations and evening out skin tone; Laser Q-Switched can also help resurfacing the skin, encouraging collagen & elastin production and smoothing out fine lines. Therefore, the skin will become smoother and more youthful-looking.
