The Q-switched laser is used to remove unwanted brown spots, sun freckles, or tattoos from your skin. The laser energy pulse, which is in billionths of a second, releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body.
QSwitch Laser Single Treatment
The Q-switched laser is appropriate if you have a few isolated colored spots, large or small, that you would like to remove. We stress that this treatment is best for removing only a few spots. If you have many diffused spots we recommend a photorejuvenation procedure such as with intense pulsed light (Elight) or the Fraxel laser. The Q-switched laser is also effective against sun spots on the chest, arms or legs.
