The skin may lose its shine and sheen due to aging, environmental stresses like UV radiation, toxic chemicals, and pollution. Excessive sun exposure gives rise to pigmentation problems like melasma, freckles, sunspots. The high level of oxidative stress may degrade many essential components of the skin that are as follows:
- Loss of elastin and collagen due to which the skin becomes inelastic and leads to open pores.
- Dull or dehydrated skin due to increased water loss from the skin.
- Due to environmental stress, it results in uneven skin tone and improper skin texture.

What is Laser Toning?
Laser toning is a simple, painless, and less time taking procedure that is appropriate for addressing multiple skin issues. This procedure is a non-ablative procedure that gives optimum results as it provides a clear, brighter, smoother, and plumper looking skin. This can effectively treat pigmentation problems like hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne scars, and many other skin related problems. This treatment breaks down the melanocytes (cells responsible for skin pigmentation) which are then flushed out of the body naturally. This treatment takes a short duration of 10 to 15 minutes. Anaesthesia may or may not be required during this treatment. One can resume their daily routine right after this treatment.
So far Q-switched laser is considered one of the best laser techniques for skin toning by dermatologists around the world. This procedure produces a pulsed beam of high-intensity Q-switched laser that reduces melanin in topmost and deeper layers of the skin to correct pigmentation problems. This energy emitted from the laser causes the production of sub-dermal collagen that improves skin tone, texture, and color.
Q-switched lasers deliver a 1064nm wavelength of light that can be absorbed by the dark patches present in the target layer of the skin. These lasers break the dark pigment causing dark patches, and also heat the skin and stimulate the production of collagen by using a quasi-long pulse or micro pulsed mode. It promotes collagen skin remodelling and improves the occurrence of fine lines and open pores. The next step involves excess melanocytes removal through sub-cellular selective photothermolysis.
This treatment does not cause any damage to the skin surface because the laser gets contacted for a very short time with the skin than other lasers.
