Any changes that occur within the body are first reflected on the skin as skin covers the whole body. Over time, the skin presents many changes in its appearance because of both internal and external factors. These contributing factors include pollution, use of harsh skin products, hormonal changes, direct sun exposure, and even genetic influence on skin health.
Laser toning employs a low-fluence, Q-switched Nd: YAG laser which targets the removal of excess melanin lying beneath the skin surface and encourages the production of sub-dermal collagen and elastin- the two skin structural proteins. The laser device used, focuses a high-intensity light beam of a specific wavelength on the skin without causing any permanent harm to the skin surface.
There are two different wavelengths on which the laser device setting is made to treat different skin concerns. One is 1064 nm which can penetrate deep into the skin to provide anti-aging benefits by boosting collagen growth. Another is 534 nm which can help break down the excess melanin in the skin, treat hyperpigmentation and subsequently lighten the skin tone. The melanin pigment thermally broken down by the laser light into tiny particles is further eliminated from the body with the help of the body’s immune system cells via the lymphatic system. Therefore, laser toning can work best as an anti-aging treatment as well as a hyperpigmentation treatment.
There are no particular pre-treatment precautions for laser toning treatment. However, it is important to maintain good skin health. For this, it's recommended to limit sun exposure as much as possible so there is no sun tanning or sunburn.
Avoiding sun overexposure or frequent sun exposure must be followed at least 2 weeks before laser toning. Also, it’s advised to obtain a patch test before the treatment. Bad habits like smoking and alcohol intake must be avoided completely throughout the treatment course. If taking any blood thinning medications or supplements, their usage must be discontinued beforehand.
The laser toning procedure involves the following steps:
Limit exposure of the skin to direct sunlight or the treated area might become red and irritated with UV rays. Step out in the sun only after applying broad-spectrum sunscreens of SPF 30 above and wearing sun-protective clothing. Keep applying sunscreen after every 2 hours to the treated regions.
Until the skin is properly healed, do not scrub, pick, or scratch the treated skin. make use of gentle cleansers and refrain from the use of harsh exfoliators for a few days post-treatment.
Apply ice packs or cold compresses to soothe the skin after the treatment.
The application of makeup is permissible after the treatment as it does not cause skin damage.

How many laser toning sessions are required to notice the desired results?
Laser toning is a gradual treatment. The desired results of laser toning can be achieved after multiple treatments of the skin with a Q-switched laser. The exact number of laser toning sessions required by a patient to enjoy the maximal benefits of laser toning varies from one patient to another.
Many patients can notice a difference after their second or third session. Most patients need 6-8 sessions for all the excess melanin-producing cells to disintegrate and deliver a natural, youthful glow to the skin. Each session is scheduled at an interval of about 1-4 weeks. For melasma treatment, 10-12 sessions of laser toning each spaced 2 weeks apart, may be required.
What is the duration of the laser toning treatment?
The time taken for one laser toning session to get over depends upon the concern being treated and the size of the area to be treated. Generally, the treatment does not take much time and ends in 30-40 minutes, if done in specific areas. A full-face laser toning may last for about 2 hours.
Are there any side effects of laser toning?
Yes. It is common to expect slight bruising or swelling which resolves on its own after some time.
What is the recovery time?
Laser toning treatment is not associated with any downtime. This means the patient can go for this treatment at lunchtime and return to work or resume their usual routine as soon as possible.
What is the best age to undergo laser toning?
People of any age group can undergo laser toning. However, adults who are aged 18 and above are preferred to get successfully treated with lasers.
How frequently can I get laser toning done?
The gaps between each laser toning session vary for every patient. The concerned doctor can help decide on the time between each treatment. For the best outcome, the doctor may prescribe this treatment every month.
What is the cost of laser toning?
The pricing range of laser toning treatment is determined based on various factors such as the state of the skin, the size of the treatment area, and the number of treatment sessions required- all of which varies from one client to the next. The price also depends upon the experience of the aesthetician and the clinic’s reputation.

What are the benefits of using lasers for skin toning?

The treatment is not associated with any downtime and causes zero discomforts. It is compatible with other aesthetic skin treatments. It provides ongoing skin improvements over several months following the treatment as collagen remodelling takes place.
