How is Q-Switch Laser Applied?
Q Switch Laser treatment does not require anesthesia. Before the procedure, the skin is cleansed thoroughly. Laser beams are directed to the targeted area, leading to the fragmentation of problematic pigments, elimination of scars, and activation of collagen production. Each session lasts approximately 15-20 minutes, and the number of sessions can range from 5-6, depending on the individual’s needs. For certain treatments like tattoo removal, it may require 10-15 sessions. The number of sessions varies for each person due to different skin types, the extent and depth of the skin condition. Visible improvements in the skin are observed after each session. The interval between sessions typically ranges from 3-6 weeks.
What Should Be Done Before Q-Switch Laser?
