Q-Switched NdYAG Laser

We understand the distress and embarrassment that skin lesions can cause, particularly when darker and covering larger parts of the visible skin, In Dr Chong Clinic, we use the Q-Switched NdYag Laser as it is one of the most effective laser treatments currently available, and provides different wavelength, suited to different skin conditions.

Q-Switched NdYAG can be treated for:

  • Melasma

  • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
  • Birthmark

How Q-Switched NdYAG Laser Work?

Q-Switched NdYag Laser Treatment may take about 15 – 30 minutes.

Our experts will first clean your skin and cover your eyes by protective goggles followed by the laser treatment. You may expect slight discomfort during the procedure which is usually tolerable.

Most patient can return to work almost immediately. However, a small number of patients may experience redness over the treated area after treatment and it will resolve after a few hours.

You may not see immediate results or lightening of the pigmentation. In fact, the pigmented spots may even darken for 1-2 weeks before any brighter but the immediate post-laser result can be seen for skin rejuvenation.

Do not expect spectacular outcomes with one treatment. Our doctors will advise on the number of treatment needed.
