Cosjet Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser

Skin Toning and Pigmentation

Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser creates short pulses of high-intensity beam light energy which can be produced at different wavelengths. This makes Q-Switched Nd:Yag is a versatile laser that can treat a variety of skin conditions.

Cosjet utilising Q-Switched Nd:YAG is an effective laser device which specialises in:

  • treatment of tattoos,
  • unwanted freckles
  • improvement of general skin tone,
  • reduce wrinkles by tightening and firming skin; and
  • improve appearance of enlarged pores

In the treatment of pigmentation, spots and blemishes, the Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser enters the top layers of skin and is absorbed selectively by any pigment. The absorption of this high-intensity pulsed energy causes the pigment to break down into smaller fragments which are easily removed by the body’s immune system naturally.

Whereas in its ‘soft laser peel’ or ‘genesis mode’, the Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser can be adjusted to treat deeper into the skin layers to stimulate collagen production. This helps to improve appearance of fine lines and work to tigthen and firm the skin. The treatment also works to gently exfoliate the superficial layer of skin by removing dead skin cells, excess oil and bacteria to reveal brighter, clearer and more youthful-looking skin.

Results may vary based on individual factors and circumstances

Soft Laser Peel / Toning for overall skin rejuvenation

It is a relatively quick treatment that takes under 30 minutes from start to finish as it does not require the use of any anaesthetic (numbing) cream. The short bursts of energy produced by the laser under this soft toning mode is very low. Therefore, it is very tolerable and comfortable; it feels like tiny little pinches as the laser is emitted but dissipates quickly.

Q-Switched Mode for pigmentation

Depending on the size of the pigmentation and the number of spots, we will adjust the treatment focal area of the laser. It may feel like a small elastic band snap as the laser is emitted. It is also tolerable and comfortable to have without the need of any numbing agent.

Soft Laser Peel / Toning for overall skin rejuvenation

Generally, there is no downtime after a toning session. You can resume your regular daily activities with no problems.

Q-Switched Mode for pigmentation

The pigmentation spots will darken over the next several days and begin to scab. Please refrain from picking the scabs and allow it to naturally shed away so that the fresh skin underneath has enough time to recover. We would highly recommend that you use adequate sun protection to protect the new skin.
