Q-Switch laser is well known for removing brown spots and skin irregularities for more than a decade. At Kim Facial Plastic Surgery in Alanta, Dr. Kim uses the Q-Switched Nd: Yag laser technology to zap these problem areas.
Q-Switch Laser is used for:
Hyper-pigmentation such as freckles, melasma, age and sun spots, birthmarks, moles
Acne and acne marks
Uneven bumps on skin
Q -Switch laser shoots a beam of light that specifically targets problem areas without having any affect on the surrounding skin. The pigment absorbs the laser energy and gets fragmented within the skin's tissues, causing new, clearer skin to develop. Since numbing cream is applied prior to the procedure, most patients are comfortable during the process.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
A tailored program will be given to you by Dr. Kim depending on the problem areas. Some patients may need only one treatment for light freckles or small spots, while others may need additional treatments if the problem areas are dark or large. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim by calling 770-458-4255 to find out how he can help your needs.
After the procedure, you may notice redness and swelling in the treated area(s). There might be slight bleeding and scabbing that occurs thereafter. To prevent scarring, it's important to keep the affected area protected and allow scabs to heal on its own without forcefully peeling them away. New skin will appear in a few days or weeks depending on each patient's health and healing.
