See your skin tone, skin texture and pore size improve with Q-Switched Laser Skin Care & Rejuvenation in Singapore.
Also called Laser Toning or Laser Peel, this is a generally safe and effective treatment that improves overall skin tone, skin texture, regulates skin oil production, and minimises pore size.
This treatment is performed by the doctor, who uses the laser technology Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser. The doctor goes over your face with the device, which emits a beam of energy at a wavelength of 1064nm, targeting a specific depth of the skin without damaging the skin surface to product beneficial results.
We recommend a minimum of three 15-min sessions at a monthly frequency for visible results. This is also entirely dependent on your skin condition, medical history, lifestyle, and expectations.
There is no one-size-fits-all laser for all skin concerns. Get your personalised treatment plan by contacting us today.
Most Q-Switched laser treatments last for approximately 12-15 mins and are done once every 3-4 weeks.
