Are you baffled by the sudden appearance of dark spots or patches on your skin? Opt for Q-Switched laser toning in Bangalore at Charma Clinic and make your skin brighter and beautiful again.
A flawless skin appearance adds to the personality and makes people feel confident in their skin. However, many people have marred looks and low self-esteem and confidence because of hyperpigmentation. It is a skin concern characterized by the appearance of dark patches or spots due to excess or uneven deposits of melanin pigment.
Skin discoloration can occur due to a variety of reasons and on any part of the body. Skin lightening cream is one of the common approaches to reduce dark spots/ patches or acne marks and treat uneven skin tone, but it fails to give an instant lighter and glowing skin complexion. However, even if the complicated beauty regimens are not showing any effect on discolored skin, Q-switched lasers might be a skin lightning miracle for your skin.

What is a Q-switched laser?
Q (Quality)-switched laser is a US FDA-cleared non-ablative technology performed at Charma Clinic, the best laser skin clinic in Bangalore that creates high-intensity light in powerful pulses lasting for a billionth of a second. The light beam produced from these types of lasers is only absorbed by melanin pigments of the skin without affecting the surrounding skin.
A Q-switched laser can be of several types including ND: YAG, Ruby, and Alexandrite laser which varies in their wavelengths. They can help shatter unwanted melanin pigments or cold dyes/inks, stimulate collagen remodeling, or even kill a fungus.
How does Q-switched laser work for skin brightening?
In a Q-switched ND: YAG laser session, the doctor first numbs the target area with a local anesthetic or topical numbing product to ensure comfort throughout the treatment. The candidate is even provided with protective eyewear to avoid any harm to the eyes by the use of lasers.
Next, the technician focuses laser light in nano-pulses across the treatment site and delivers powerful bursts of thermal energy to break down the specific melanin pigment. Depending upon the skin condition of the candidate and the treatment objectives, the power settings of the laser device can be calibrated to ensure the precision of the laser wavelength. A Q-switched ND: YAG laser can apply two specific wavelengths of light: 532 nm and 1064 nm to the pigmented skin to be absorbed by the skin-colored pigments. The shorter wavelength can get rid of superficial skin-pigmented lesions with safety by selectively weakening melanocytes and precisely destroying some melanin by heat. The shattered melanin is later removed from the body through the lymphatic system.
Depending upon the amount and strength of the dark spots appearing on the skin, the candidate may require about 6-8 laser sessions each spaced 4-5 weeks apart. These are usually a few minutes sessions after which the candidate can return home and carry out their daily routine immediately.
The best part of using Q-switched ND: YAG lasers which are essentially designed to treat pigmentation is their uniqueness. Other than the skin brightening effect, the heat from the laser can even pass deeper layers of the skin to reach the dermis and stimulate collagen production. This ultimately helps in skin tightening and rejuvenation. The laser can gently vaporize the superficial skin layers to reveal new, refreshing skin. Hence, most people opt for Q-switched lasers in Bangalore at Charma Clinic to achieve the skin looks they dreamt of.
