What is it?
Pro laser, also known as professional laser/ Q-switch laser, is a lunchtime laser treatment targeting skin concerns like pigmentation, ageing and even tattoo removal.
How does it work?
Q-switch, a non-invasive laser, creates a high intensity beam of energy that concentrates into powerful pulses. Q-Switch laser when applied to skin at specific wavelength, is able to shatter tiny fragments of pigmentation or ink, stimulate collagen and kill fungus.
Q-Switch lasers are also known for not damaging surrounding tissues nor causing unwanted side effects.
What is it used for?
- Skin rejuvenation – the heat from laser increases collagen production to reverse signs of ageing. It also helps to remove dirt, dead skin cells and superficial face hair.
- Pigmented lesions – the laser energy is absorbed by pigments like age spots, sun spots, acne marks, birthmarks, freckles, moles etc, and breaks off into smaller fragments then naturally cleared away by the body and skin.
- Pimples and acne – laser energy can kill the bacteria causing pimples and acne. It also shrinks oil gland which helps with oil control.
- Tattoo removal – like pigmented lesions, the laser energy can break down the tattoo ink and eventually removing the tattoo.
What is the down time?
There is almost no downtime and you can expect to return to work or daily activities with no interruptions.
Is it safe?
Q-switch laser is a gentle alternative to other skin resurfacing procedures and does not thin out your skin.
It is FDA approved and 100% safe.
Is it painful?
The 15 minutes procedure is generally a tolerable and comfortable process. You may feel the sensation of having tiny dots or rubber band snapping on your skin.
When can I expect to see the result?
You can expect to see lightened pigmentation, smaller pores and better pimple control within 3-4 weeks.
What are the skincare to follow up with after laser?
Sunblock and moisturiser. Masking is recommended as laser may cause dryness.
