Pigmentation problems are very common in both men and women. Freckles, birthmarks, and sunspots are a normal part of life. If they are bothersome, they can be removed with laser treatments. Along with pigment problems, unwanted tattoos are also very common. These can be difficult to remove, but not with an advanced laser such as the Q-Switched Laser.
What is the Q-Switched Laser?
A quality-switched laser (Q-Switched) is a non-invasive treatment that uses a laser with a high-intensity pulsed beam light. The pulses from the Q-Switched laser last just a billionth of a second but the energy that is emitted is highly concentrated and very powerful. This laser system is used to remove tattoos, freckles, and unwanted brown spots from the skin.
How Does the Q-Switched Laser Work?
The Q-Switched laser is most frequently used for tattoo removal as well as the removal of freckles, sunspots, and age spots. It accomplishes this by shattering tiny fragments of pigment or ink from the area with the beam of light. It also helps to stimulate collagen for improved cellular turnover. Since the Q-Switched Lasers do not contact the skin as much as other lasers it is very safe and will not damage surrounding tissue.
What Can the Q-Switched Laser Treat?

Before the treatment begins, a numbing cream will be applied to help with any discomfort. The laser will be run over the treatment area to break up the pigment or ink. Most people need multiple sessions in order to achieve optimal results.
What Can I Expect From the Q-Switched Laser?
After the treatment session, you are free to go about your day as normal. The skin may feel sensitive and become red. This should resolve within a couple of days. The skin may become dry and start to crust, this can be managed with moisturizers.
