What are the treatments applied with Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser?

Skin Resurfacing and Spot Treatment with Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser;

Newly developed and equally distributed Q-switched Nd: YAG lasers increase elastin and collagen due to fibroblast activation in the dermis, while also eliminating skin spots.

Currently, the most commonly used laser Q-switch for spot treatment is the Nd: YAG laser. During this treatment, laser energy is absorbed by melanin-containing cells, while other normal skin colourants are not affected.  Melanin is the substance that colours our skin. Skin spots are areas of intense melanin.

Pigmented lesions are dermally separated from the epidermal layer according to the depth of the pigment. Epidermal lesions (freckles, cafe-au-lait spots, sun spots, etc.) are treated using 532 nm wavelength, which is absorbed mainly by melanin and therefore mainly acts on superficial skin levels. Dermal lesions such as Ota’s Nevus or Mongol spots are found deeper and 1064 nm wavelength, a wavelength that can act more deeply on the skin, is used for the treatment.

Carbon Peeling Treatment with Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser

Carbon peeling application can also help to tighten the enlarged pores and reduce the oiling. Carbon peeling can be applied to every skin type. Dark-skinned patients can benefit from this method without side effects. The number of applications is between 4 and 10 sessions according to the problem on the skin

Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser with Tattoo Removal

Q-Switched Nd: YAG lasers also perform tattoo removal. Tattoo removal lasers divide the particles under the skin into small pieces, and they are removed by the defence cells of the body by means of the lymph circulation. Ideal tattoo removal patients are light-skinned, not sunburned, have dark blue, navy blue or black coloured and at least one-year-old tattoo. Old tattoos will respond better to treatment. Q-Switched Nd: YAG lasers are the most suitable lasers for dark-skinned people with laser tattooing. This laser can go deep and it is less likely to cause damage to the skin in the form of colour change. The procedure usually does not require anaesthesia. In some special cases, local anesthetic creams or cold air can be used.

Because tattoo makers use different brands and materials, even if the tattoos are the same colour, the results of laser tattoo removal can be different. Some tattooing cannot be completely broken down by the laser. The end result may be a failure to wipe the tattoo. For this reason, each tattoo removal process is person-specific and treatment responses may vary. Purple, green, and yellow tattoos are the most difficult to treat. Ideal tattoo removal patients are light-skinned, not sunburned, have dark blue, navy blue or black coloured and at least one-year-old tattoo.

Treatments can be applied in all seasons. Sun protectors should be used regularly, solarium should not be entered.
