Q-switch laser, also known as Nd:YAG laser, is one of the latest technology used to treat uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmentation.

Q -Switch laser creates an invisible beam of light that can target the brown pigment or melanin present in the dark spots without having any effect on the surrounding skin.

In nanoseconds are pulses are emitted and the bean stays uniform to avoid any harmful effect.
The fractional handpieces used to reduce the time to allow interaction of the laser beam with the skin as increased exposure may damage the skin. Laser energy provides quick recovery of the damaged tissues thereby enhances the surface by restoring the internal pattern.
