One of the most popular facial treatments at HB Health Group, also known amongst the beauty world as ‘The Red-carpet facial’ is the Q-switch laser toning.
What is Q-Switch laser?
One of the latest technologically advanced treatments to clear and remove stubborn pigmentation including Melasma and Chloasma caused by hormones and malfunctioning in the melanin in the skin. Q Switch is not only becoming increasingly popular for its incredible results, but it is also a non-invasive, less risk adverse and no downtime treatment with less side effects compared to other laser options.
The Q-Switch Laser harnesses non-invasive light energy to gently stimulate skin’s own collagen Collagen is the support network for skin. As age advances, collagen in the skin breaks down, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. Additionally, years of sun exposure result in pigmentation, redness, enlarged pores and discolouration. The Q-Switch laser is the best way to minimise pores and remove blackheads.
A course of 4-6 treatments of Q-Switch Laser is recommended. Intervals of 2-5 weeks between treatments will return the best results. After the initial course of treatments, touch up sessions can be utilised to maintain results in the future.
What is the downtime?
There may be some initial mild redness after the treatment, similar to mild sunburn, which typically fades within hours.
When do I start to see results?
Although you may see some immediate improvement in your skin, with the blackheads gone and a smoother texture, the full results with be unveiled over the coming weeks to months as your skin produces more collagen.
