Laser for Pigmentation (laser Toning)
Uneven pigmentation can occur when the body’s pigment-making melanocytes, the melanin-forming cells in the skin, become damaged or lose efficiency. This is a part of the natural aging process but is also a common side effect of excessive sun damage.
Aging, hormonal imbalance, and certain diseases can also disrupt melanin production, causing the skin to darken in spots or patches.
Laser toning is effective, scientifically proven and world-wide most commonly used treatment for such conditions.
Skin toning refers to the use of Q-Switched lasers for non-ablative skin rejuvenation.
What is the procedure?
In skin toning, multiple passes of low-dose Q switched Nd:YAG are delivered through a large spot size to induce sublethal injury to melanosomes causing fragmentation and rupture of melanin granules into the cytoplasm. This effect is highly selective for melanosomes and leads to overall skin brightness. Moreover, the subthreshold injury to the surrounding dermis stimulates the formation of collagen that results in tighter skin.
