Laser Toning

Laser Toning / Laser Toning

Fair and spotless skin is a dream cherished by everyone across the world since time immemorial.
Laser skin lightening (or whitening) is a medical procedure in which concentrated beams of short pulsed light are cast upon the targeted areas of skin to remove unwanted, irregular, and damaged skin.
The process stimulates the new growth of fresh skin cells which ultimately leads to lighter skin tones.

This laser skin treatment is widely used to treat skin conditions such as,

  • hyper-pigmentation problems
  • uneven skin tones (due to overproduction of melanin)
  • dark underarms and inner thighs
  • melasma
  • chloasma
  • liver spots
  • age spots
  • sunburnt skin

What is Laser toning?

This is a non-invasive procedure that uses beam of light as high-energy pulse to disintegrate melanin deposits. This laser is applied to remove any kind of scar or discoloration like acne spots, sun tans, age spots, liver marks, sun freckles or even a tattoo. Further, the laser promotes collagen growth underneath the skin. This results in firmer and younger looking skin.

How does Laser Toning Work?

The wavelength of light to be used during the treatment is determined by the quality of the skin to be treated. The laser pulse is applied to dissolve pigments and stimulate new collagen production. This makes your skin appear pleasantly plump. The principle underlying the laser concept is that laser wave works only on aberrations and doesn't affect normal parts. This is why it is important to correctly determine the particular wavelength required to be applied for specific skin discoloration problem.

What happens during the procedure?

The treatment feels just like a mild sting on the skin. An initial redness is noticed but it disappears within few minutes time. There are provisions for local anesthesia to eliminate the discomfort. Doctors advise abstinence from alcohol and Vitamin E prior to the treatment. Ideally, you should not expose yourself to the sun immediately after the treatment and a sunscreen with high SPF is strongly recommended.

How do I prepare my skin?

Avoid sun exposure at least for 2 weeks before laser treatment.
Avoid using retin-A or other irritating skin products at least 3 days prior to treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Laser toning is a gradual process, usually, 6-10 treatments are advised spaced 4 weeks apart.

Benefits of Laser Toning

  • The treatment manages to remove all unwanted discoloration. Just a few sittings are enough to accomplish the mission but some spots can be resilient. In general, the treatment has no side effects. Chances of any kind of infection are very rare too. The spots that are removed do not return, but new spots can form due to excessive sun exposure.
  • This is a new age technology that corrects skin painlessly and naturally. Due to pollution and sun exposure, pores in our skin get bigger, making it susceptible to various skin problems like acne and pigmentation. The laser system improves overall skin texture by constricting enlarged pores, promoting collagen formation and dissolving the deposited pigment.
  • After successful completion of the treatment, your skin gets rejuvenated, appears brighter, cleaner, smoother and suppler. After our laser toning session, you don't have to photoshop your pictures!
