Laser toning refers to the use of Q-switched lasers (long pulsed laser) that delivers lower energy wavelength of light to targeted skin areas and induce sublethal injury to the melanosomes (site for synthesis, storage, and transport of melanin). This causes rupture and fragmentation of melanin granules present in the cytoplasm, and result in melanin reduction in the superficial layers of the skin and improves various skin pigmentation disorders. At Dermaworld Skin Clinics in Delhi, we use tri-beam premium technology that removes pigmented lesions, lightens the skin tone, and provides with improved skin texture. This sub-threshold injury to the surrounding dermis also stimulates collagen formation (promote collagen remodelling) that leads to making the skin tighter and minimising the large open pores.
It is also effective for skin tightening and sagging skin around the neck, jawline, and forehead.
Apart from the pigmentation issues, laser toning can help with:

Laser toning targets the outer layer of the skin and heats the lower layer of the dermis to promote collagen production. The new collagen fibers also help in the production of new skin that provides smoother and blemish free skin.
Before performing laser toning, the candidate must protect their skin from the sun (must apply sunscreen), stop smoking, and must stop the intake of any blood-thinning medications. This helps to increase skin tolerance towards this dermatological treatment and decrease the risk of any side effects during the treatment.
Now let’s understand the procedure step wise.
1. A topical anesthetic is applied to reduce pain and discomfort during the procedure.
2. The skin is cleansed to remove excess oil, bacteria, and dirt.
3. Eyes are protected with goggles, and the laser is moved slowly all over the face or selectively in certain areas.
4. A soothing hydrating product is applied, that contains vitamin C, hyaluronic acid. Sunscreen is also applied.
The patient may experience slight redness in the treated area for a few hours after the treatment, and certain vitamins and serums are applied to ease the discomfort after the treatment. It is a very comfortable procedure that enhances facial beauty by improving inflammatory pigmentation.
