A. How Q switch laser treatment works?
The Q-switched laser is used to remove unwanted brown spots, sun freckles, or tattoos from your skin. The laser energy pulse, which is in billionths of a second, releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body.
B. Why go for Q switch laser treatment?
There are a few good strong points to talk about "Q switch laser treatment" when compared to other treatment methods, they are
C. Who are the ideal people for Q switch laser treatment?
Pregnant women are not the ideal people for this treatment. People with the previous history of cold sores or people who are taking Accutane for the past 6 months are not eligible to go for Q switch laser treatment until and unless the conditions are permanently treated.
D. Where there are any alternative treatment methods for Q switch laser treatment?
Yes, PDT(Photodynamic therapy), Fraxel lasers and laser nitrogen treatment methods are a few other options that are available at Lifescc. Along with Q switch laser treatment. Whereas PDT holds well when you have too many dark spots spread across all your body such as the chest, arms, legs, face, etc.
E. What are the other benefits of Q switch Laser Treatment?
It not only helps tighten the sagging skin on the face but also helps in drastically improving facial appearance by removing the wrinkles and fine lines on the face without causing any side effects.
F. How effective is Q Switch laser treatment for tattoo removal?
Q switch laser treatment is one of the highly safest and the most sought after treatment methods for tattoo removal as it directly targets the pigment of the tattoo. Q switch laser tattoo removal uses short, intense pulses of laser energy that shatter ink in a tattoo causing the tattoo to fade over a series of consecutive treatments, leaving a fair and smooth skin free of ink.
Q-switching is achieved by putting some variable attenuator inside the laser's optical resonator. When the attenuator is functioning, the light which leaves the gain medium does not return, and lasing cannot begin. This attenuation inside the cavity corresponds to a decrease in the Q factor or quality factor of the optical resonator. A high Q factor corresponds to low resonator losses per round trip and vice versa. The variable attenuator is commonly called a "Q-switch" when used for this purpose.
The power settings of the laser can be set at different levels and frequencies to accommodate your specific condition and expectations.
