  If you are looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment to make your skin look and feel Hollywood “red carpet ready”, then the Q-switched laser facial is definitely for you! Insta Clarity Laser (Q Switched Laser) is the latest technology to treat uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmentation. It is a revolutionary service that uses Q-Switched laser that is highly safe for all skin types with proven results on Indian skin to treat unwanted pigmentation, brown spots, sun freckles, or tattoos from your skin. The treatment is highly customizable were the power settings of the laser can be set at different levels and frequencies to accommodate specific conditions and expectations.

What to expect during the application?

 Q-Switched Laser Treatment is a gentle alternative, and requires less sessions than skin resurfacing procedures to achieve similar results. Before the application your doctor will anesthetize the treatment areas to reduce any discomfort that might arise especially during tattoo removals, afterwards the Q -Switch laser will be applied on the treatment areas creating an invisible beam of light that feels like many tiny hot dots on your skin. This light specifically targets the brown pigment or melanin present in the dark spots, freckles, sun spots, age spots, etc…without having any effect on the surrounding skin and is absorbed by them. This process fragments the pigmentation and helps it get broken down by the body. Any further discomfort during the application is greatly reduced by a stream of cold air directed at the spots along with the laser beams.

How do you prepare?

  Before going through the Q-Switched laser treatment make sure not to tan your skin and avoid excessive sun exposure for approximately one to two weeks prior to your treatment. Stop all topical creams 24 – 48 hrs. before the procedure unless instructed by your doctor. It is also advised to avoid laser treatments, waxing, bleaching and any aspirin-consumed drugs at least 10 days before the procedure.

How long does a Q-Switched Laser treatment take?

 Q-Switched Laser is a quick, 15-minute service with absolutely no downtime. You can return to your normal work immediately after the service

Post treatment instructions

Light scabbing or peeling is common too, especially with tattoo removal. For your safety and in order to obtain optimum results sun protection and wearing broad spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 is crucial after the treatment.  You are also advised not to vigorously rub the skin or use scrubs after the treatment.

How many treatments are required?
