The clinic is well renowned for providing the best laser toning treatment in Hyderabad. She offers laser toning treatment at her clinic that helps one to get healthy, glowing, and youthful-looking skin.

Why is Laser Toning Popular?

Laser toning uses Q-switched lasers, and they are non-ablative types of lasers known to preserve the health of surrounding skin tissues. They produce different light wavelengths, which makes them versatile in effectively treating many skin concerns. The most popular type of Q-switched laser is Nd: YAG, which emits two wavelengths of light: 532nm and 1064nm. It is preferred for laser toning because of its vast range of applications, including skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments. Fortunately, the advanced Q-switched lasers used today are appropriate for the safe and efficacious treatment of pigmentation concerns in patients of any skin type (including skin type IV or higher).

Why is it done?

Laser toning has been used with reasonable success for the following:

  • Melasma
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Freckles
  • Age or sun-spots
  • Acne scars
  • Nevus of Ota
  • Café au Lait

  • Solar lentigo
  • Seborrheic Keratosis
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Dull skin
  • Erythema/ skin redness
  • Post-traumatic inflammation

If one is suffering from these issues and wants a glowing skin tone, opt now for laser toning treatment in Hyderabad, offered by Dr. Ravali Yalamanchili at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic.

How Does Q-Switched Laser Work?

The Q-switched lasers produce short pulses of light, which penetrate through the superficial skin layers to reach the skin dermis, where melanin-skin-colored pigment lies. The concentrated light generates a lot of heat that gets selectively absorbed by extra or abnormal pigments/chromophores in the skin. The thermal energy causes the shattering of unwanted pigments into smaller ones, eventually cleared from the body via a lymphatic system with the help of the immune system cells.

The Q-switched lasers can be calibrated based on the concern being addressed, such as anti-aging and general skin rejuvenation. Under these settings, the treatment can be beneficial in removing dirt, excess oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria to achieve a smoother, brighter, and clearer complexion. These lasers also heat the skin dermis where fibroblasts are present to boost new collagen production over time which causes continued skin improvements.

How to prepare the skin before laser toning?

Prior to laser toning treatment in Hyderabad, the doctor at the clinic highly recommends that the candidates follow these instructions provided by the skincare practitioner or laser technician:

  • Do not expose the area to be treated to direct sunlight, and avoid the use of sun tanning beds as well as creams. 
  • A skin-lightening cream may be applied to the treatment site before the procedure as prescribed by the dermatologist. 
  • Avoid smoking, intake of blood thinners, and excessive alcohol consumption. 
  • On the day of the procedure, ensure that the treatment site is properly washed and made dirt, grease, and make-up free. A patch test may be recommended to check for the skin's tolerance level and adjust the laser device settings accordingly. If the patient has a sensitive skin type, a topical numbing agent may be applied to the treatment site 30-45 minutes before starting the main procedure to ensure comfort throughout the treatment. The eyes of both the skincare professional and the patient must be kept protected from laser light by using special protective eyewear.

What to expect during and after laser toning?

On the clean and numb treatment area, the provider hovers the laser device delivering the laser beam into the skin in multiple passes. The Q-switched Nd: YAG laser is first used in the Genesis mode- the quasi-long pulse mode, which works to heat the skin's dermal layers and boost collagen production. Next, the laser is utilized in the toning mode, where low energy is delivered to treat large spot sizes, which helps to calm down the melanocytes and leads to reduced melanin production. When the laser light comes in contact with the skin to be treated, the patient can feel warmth in the treatment area and a slight sting, as if a hot rubber band is snapped against the skin. Lastly, the provider applies a hydrating or soothing skincare product that is Vitamin C or hyaluronic acid based. Following the laser toning procedure, the patient may notice slight redness in the treated site, which subsides quickly.

There are no obvious changes in the skin appearance, and the patients can resume their normal daily activities instantly. The patient can expect to see skin improvements soon after the treatment and further experience skin improvements for weeks until collagen remodeling occurs.

Laser sessions usually take about 10-15 minutes or even an hour. Multiple treatments (usually 4-6) are typically needed at an interval of 2-8 weeks. All this is based on the concern being addressed, the severity of the skin concern to be treated, the patient's skin type, and the size of the treatment site. Most people notice their desired results in just three laser sittings. However, melasma requires 10-12 laser treatments spaced 2 weeks apart to provide desired results.
