What is Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser?
The Q-Switched Nd: Yag laser produces extraordinary brief pulses of rays of 1064.. Nanosecond lasers which are billionth of second pulses and picoseconds lasers trillionth of second pulses are two types of Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser. This laser treatment is capable to reach and penetrate into deeper layers of skin. It is the basic reason that Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser can destroy deeper spots, deep-seated melanocytes, permanent tattoos and other skin problems. Many skin clinics use this laser treatment for nevus of Ota and Hori also.
How it works?
These lasers are efficient to produce an effective and huge amount of energy in a very fast pulse, which creates a high level of energy. Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser creates light which goes at 1064 nm wavelength in brief, intense pulses. Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser contains KTP Filter which doubles the frequency of light into the 532 nm wavelength. Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser has become essential to treat in many skin conditions because 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths and ultra-short pulses reach in deeper pigments and it is powerful enough to destroy its target but safe on skin. Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser commonly used on unwanted tattoos, pigmented lesions as brown, black or age spots, to treat spider veins for the treatment of toenail fungus and non ablative skin rejuvenation.
Who can be treated with Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser?
Anyone with any skin tone or color can be treated with Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser. This treatment can help to reduce pigmentation marks, age spots, and unusual nevus. This laser treatment is very effective to remove tattoos as well.
Q Switched-Nd: YAG Laser is helpful in:
- Age spots, nevus of Ota, nevus of Ito, Hori naevus, Mongolian spots etc.
- Blue, grey and black tattoos with the help of 1064 nm wavelength. This laser treatment adds selective elimination of ink molecules.
- Laser toning (Glow)
