Q-Switched laser is a standout among other laser devices in that it utilizes ultra-fast pulses of laser energy to target pigmentation, acne, texture and more. Typical laser devices rely on heat to treat the skin, lasting in longer downtime post-treatment as well as the chance for potential damage to the skin. We have been using Fotona Q-Switched laser as a safe and effective treatment for addressing common skin concerns, and over the years patients have come to love the procedure and the incredible results it delivers.
WHAT DOES THE Q-SWITCHED LASER TREAT?
Q-Switched addresses a number of common concerns, including:
- Fine lines/wrinkles
- Hormonal pigmentation
- Dark/age spots
- Actinic and seborrheic keratosis
- Skin texture
- Collagen production
THE SEILER SKIN DIFFERENCE
Dr. Seiler’s depth of experience in laser technology is the key differentiator between our Q-Switched laser treatment and that offered by other providers in the area. Dr. Seiler is a board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon and brings years of experience both practicing and training fellow providers on laser procedures. His wealth of knowledge allows him to properly consult with each patient to determine what treatment plan is best to fit their goals.
Another benefit of coming to Seiler Skin for Q-Switched is the top-tier devices we use in the treatment. It’s crucial that your provider uses a laser device that will adequately treat the targeted area without damaging the skin. We also calibrate the machine to meet the frequency needed to both address your concerns while also accounting for your skin type — both crucial in delivering a safe, effective treatment.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THE Q-SWITCHED LASER?
Q-Switched is a great treatment for patients of nearly all skin types looking to address common concerns such as acne, pigmentation and discoloration. This procedure is especially wonderful for patients with darker skin as it does not rely on heat to treat the skin and is therefore much less likely to damage the skin. Dr. Seiler consults with each patient to determine if they are a proper candidate and what treatment plan may be best for them.
WHAT IS THE Q-SWITCHED LASER PROCESS LIKE?
Patients experience little to no discomfort during the treatment process, especially given that Q-Switched does not rely on the heat technology that other laser technologies use. Post-treatment downtime is also minimal and most patients are able to return to their regular routine.
Patients generally see a change in discoloration/pigmentation following 2 to 3 treatments, though additional ones may be needed for more severe hyperpigmentation. Over the course of treatment, patients will see a noticeable difference in texture, scarring and more.
