About Face offers Q Switch Laser as a treatment for a variety of issues including:
- Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation
- Sun spots or sun tan
- Tattoo removal
We offer the NdYAG laser that efficiently decreases the pigmentation of superficial tan, sun spots, freckles, some moles and has also been used for tattoo removal effectively.
The laser energy pulse releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body. While lightening the skin, even the hair get lightened along with some very fine villous hair getting shed off temporarily.
This is in fact called as the lunch-time procedure since it has no downtime.
Q Switch Laser is also an excellent therapy for removing tattoos. The laser breaks down the tattoo pigment into particles that are naturally swept away by the body’s lymphatic system. Full removal takes an average of 6–8 treatment sessions(depending on the size of the tattoo), spaced 3–5 weeks apart. Note that some ink colours respond better to the treatment than others (e.g. dark blues/greens are removed far easier that yellows/whites).
For an optimum result, at least 6-8 sessions are advised, with a gap of around 12-15 days.
Even better results are observed when the Q Switch Laser treatment is combined with other exfoliating services like microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
