How Does It Work?
The Q-switched laser is used to remove unwanted brown spots, sun freckles, or tattoo 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 absorbed and disposed of by the body.
A single treatment usually removes greater than 75-100% of an individual brown spot. A second or, on rare occasions, a third treatment, may be needed to completely neutralize the color.
You will feel a burning sensation on the treated area for several minutes or up to a few hours. The spots become red and form a crust that must be covered to heal optimally. We recommend that you treat these with plain vaseline or petroleum jelly and keep them covered with bandages until they are healed, as this speeds the healing.
