Laser Toning

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.

Laser toning is an effective method to treat melasma and other skin pigmentation issues. It also addresses other cosmetic concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage.

How Laser Toning Procedure is performed?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser toning is a painless and quick procedure that is suitable for treating multiple skin cosmetic problems. It is a non-invasive procedure that is used to treat hyperpigmentation issues, unwanted sun spots, acne scars, and brown spots from the skin. This procedure is also used for promoting skin lightening and whitening. One of the best methods for laser toning is Q-switched. In this procedure, a Q-switched laser pulsed beam of high intensity is produced that reduces the dark melanin pigment and corrects skin pigmentation problems. This energy emitted by laser stimulates the production of sub-dermal collagen and improves skin tone, texture, and color.

Q-switched lasers deliver a 1064nm wavelength of light that is absorbed by the dark pigment melanin present in the dark spots or pigmented area. The heat of the laser destroys this excess melanin pigment and reduces their appearance. Laser toning also causes sub-dermal collagen production, which is responsible for improving the texture, color, and tone of the skin. The collagen and elastin production help regain back perfect skin texture. This method also makes the skin much softer, brighter, firmer, and supple. This treatment is not responsible for causing any damage to the surrounding skin because this laser takes a very short time to contact the skin compared to other laser skin treatments.

Laser toning is a simple, painless treatment procedure that corrects various multiple skin issues.

It is also useful in providing anti-aging benefits.

Laser toning is the best treatment for skin whitening. Laser toning is for treating multiple skin darkening and pigmentation related issues. This procedure uses a Q-Switched laser that decreases the dark melanin present in the superficial layers of the skin and corrects pigment irregularities. This laser also supports collagen and elastin production that rejuvenates the skin tone and texture. This procedure improves the appearance of uneven skin tone, blotchy skin, and tanned skin and gives immediate brightening and rejuvenation to the skin of the face, hands, and neck. The hairs of the face are affected by the bleaching effect and shed off which provides a brightening effect to the skin. Once the skin surface becomes rejuvenated, it gives a whitening effect to the skin.

Yes. Laser toning is a safe, effective, and painless rejuvenating procedure. This procedure is a non-ablative method, so it does not cause any damage to the skin. But some patients may experience a sensation of heat when the laser handpiece is applied on the facial skin during the procedure, but to manage discomfort, a cooling gel is applied on the face that eases this procedure and discomfort. The patient can resume their regular activities immediately after this procedure because this method does not cause bruising or swelling. One may need 4 to 6 sessions of laser toning to obtain the best results.

Q-switched laser toning is good for treating facial skin irregularities because it uses a process of sub-cellular selective photothermolysis to destroy the dark pigment-producing cells. The laser heat is absorbed by the melanin, and it is further broken and further removed by the body’s immune system. The treatment also removes tan and makes the skin look brighter. The lasers also bleach the fine superficial face hair and make one look fairer after the process. The non-ablative lasers are used in this process, and they heat the targeted tissue and do not destroy them. The controlled thermal injury results in more collagen and elastin production and makes the skin look youthful and radiant.
