What is a Q-Switched Laser Treatment?

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

  • ● It works appropriately for only those people who have isolated dark brown spots on a very few areas on the body
  • ● Unlike liquid nitrogen treatment, Q switch laser treatment works perfectly well, as it will not leave any white marks in the place of brown spots which can be seen in liquid nitrogen treatment.
  • ● The laser used in this treatment can go into the deeper layer of skin to eliminate brown spots which can't be possible with other medicines or creams.

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?

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.

Principle of Q-switching

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.

Where does it work?

The power settings of the laser can be set at different levels and frequencies to accommodate your specific condition and expectations.


The laser energy is absorbed by the pigments (usually brown, or grey in colour). These pigmentation break off into smaller fragments and are naturally cleared away by the body and skin.

Acne Marks 

Acne marks are caused by inflammation (the redness and pain) from pimples. The inflammation causes the skin to produce pigments. These pigments are cause of acne marks, which can be effectively removed with the laser.

Fairer Skin

The colour of our skin is also determined by the amount of skin pigments. Darker skin people or people who go sun tanning often have more skin pigments. The laser, at the correct setting, helps lighten the skin tone and makes it fairer and brighter.

Skin Rejuvenation

The laser uses its energy to remove dirt, dead skin cells, oil and superficial facial hair. Take this as a quick, effective and multi-purposed medical facial!.

Pimples And Acne

The laser energy can also kill P-acne, which is the bacteria that cause pimples and acne. At the same time, the laser energy also shrinks the oil glands in the skin and helps with oil control. Pimples and acne also tend to be less inflamed after laser treatments and this reduces the amount of acne marks after a breakout.

Tattoo Removal

Tattoo inks are foreign pigments introduced into the body. Like natural skin pigmentations, the laser energy breaks down the tattoo ink and removes the tattoo..
