Best Laser Toning in Bangalore

Rejuvenate your skin tone with laser toning in Bangalore, a skin brightening treatment available at Charma Clinic.

Every individual wishes to have flawless-looking skin. Laser toning is an aesthetic medical procedure that can serve this purpose and provide instant skin rejuvenation. This treatment is popular worldwide because it improves both skin tone and texture, that too without any downtime.
 

Most people develop dark patches on their skin because of the increase or decrease in melanin pigment production which is responsible for skin color. Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening) happens when the melanocytes become overactive and produce excess melanin. This could be due to skin infections, sun exposure, or other reasons.

 

How does Laser Toning work?

Laser toning makes use of a low-fluence multi-pass technique. It is a demanding procedure as it is safe and effective for all skin types. However, the results of laser toning may vary based on the person’s skin condition, age, skin type, and the wavelength of the laser used. 

Over the past few years, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (QSL at 1064 nm of wavelength) is the most favored laser in the treatment of melasma (a type of pigmentation) because of its deep penetrating property, safety in the pigmented skin, and wonderful results.

The Q-switched laser causes sub-cellular selective photothermolysis of excess melanin without causing any harm to the surface skin tissues. It employs the energy of a low fluence laser beam to gradually and effectively treat the skin concerns from deep inside the skin like sun-damaged skin, enlarged or open pores, fine lines, acne scars, and pigmentation.
 

The procedure makes use of laser light of a specific wavelength which is focused for a few microseconds onto the pigmented skin. It delivers multiple passes of low dose Q-switched laser which penetrate deep into the skin dermis to cause thermal fragmentation of the melanosomes and the rupturing of melanin granules into the cytoplasm. These tiny broken melanin pigments are absorbed by the bloodstream and eventually removed from the body with the help of the immune system. 

It also induces the natural healing response of the body to promote new collagen growth, melanin metabolism, and enhances skin hydration. With new collagen and elastin production, the skin texture and tone are considerably improved. At Charma Clinic this skin lightening treatment is performed with precision and safety by the best skin experts in Bangalore after properly analyzing the skin type and concerns to be targeted.

 

Why should one opt for a Laser Toning treatment?

  • A single session of laser toning can provide an immediate reduction in the dark spots on the skin. Usually, the brown or grey-colored pigmented skin absorbs the thermal energy emitted by the Q-switched laser. This breaks these pigments into smaller fragments which get absorbed in the skin and later naturally disposed off by the body. The Q-switched laser helps to lighten the skin tone and makes the skin fairer and brighter. It can effectively and safely treat the pigmentation of dark-skinned people as well. 
  • The post-inflammatory skin pigmentation caused by inflamed skin blemishes or acne scarring can be effectively treated with the help of a Q-switched laser.
  • The Q-switched laser can use its heat energy to remove dead skin cells, dirt, and excess oil. It can shrink the sebaceous glands in the skin to control oil production. Thus, acne or pimples tend to be less inflamed after this treatment and this reduces the number and extent of acne marks after a breakout. The bacteria that reside in the skin and cause different types of acne can also be killed by Q-switched laser toning. 
  • It can break down the tattoo ink (colored dyes or foreign pigments that are introduced into the skin) and help the person get rid of undesirable body art, just like natural skin pigmentation. Multiple sessions help to achieve the best outcomes.

Instructions to follow before a Laser Toning treatment

There is no such preparation needed before performing laser toning treatment in Bangalore. However, some do’s and don’ts must be kept in mind such as: 

 

  • If planning for a Q-switched laser treatment direct sun exposure and sun tanning must be avoided. It is recommended that the person wears sunscreens and sun-protecting clothing over their sun-exposed body parts. Lip balms having SPF 30 or higher shall be used to protect the lips from sun damage.
  • Blood-thinning medicines and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs must not be consumed for about 2 weeks before the procedure. 
  • At least three days before the treatment, the treatment site must be kept free of any topical creams, serums, and lotions that can interfere with the laser. To achieve the best possible results, only the prescribed topical serums or creams shall be applied and oral medications shall be taken. 
     

Steps involved in a Laser Toning treatment

The procedure of laser toning is quite simple. It involves the following steps:

  • Firstly, the area to be treated is cleansed properly to remove any makeup or cosmetics, excess oil, and dirt.
  • The skin may be numbed by applying a topical anaesthetic cream.
  • Next, the eyes are covered with gauze, and protective eyeglasses are asked to be worn by the client. This is necessary to protect the eyes against the laser beam if the facial skin is being treated. 
  • Further, the skin expert makes an appropriate setting of the Q-switched laser according to the skin type and condition of the client. The fluence chosen in the starting depends upon the spot size of the laser and the color of pigmentation. The laser fluence would be kept less for darker melasma. With a longer wavelength of laser light and large spot size, the depth of penetration can be increased even with less fluence. The frequency chosen for treating melasma must be between 5-10 Hz. 
  • The treatment site chosen first is the largest discolored spot located anywhere on the body. Then, a laser beam with short emissions from a handheld laser device ( held perpendicular to the skin) is focused on the affected area of the skin. Between two pulses, there must be an overlap of more than 10-15%.   
  • The endpoint of the treatment involves slight redness of the skin (erythema) that resolves soon. An ice pack or any cooling gel is applied to the treated area to soothe and calm the skin. 
  • Lastly, a healing cream mixed with a broad-spectrum sunscreen is applied over the treated site before the individual leaves for home.

Results achieved with Laser Toning treatment: 

The Q-switched laser treatment in Bangalore at Charma Clinic can effectively manage various skin issues like hyperpigmentation, scarring, melasma, dark spots, sunspots, fine lines, and wrinkles and also enhances the skin tone, and texture. The result of the laser toning in Bangalore can last even longer than one’s expectations but may need several sessions to deliver optimal results. Typically, a person might require 4-6 sessions of laser toning which can be conducted on any area of the body or face. The number of the treatment sessions needed and the longevity of one sitting depends upon the skin type, size of the treatment area, and the severity of the skin condition. Laser toning provides favorable results and makes the skin look brighter, refreshing, plumper, and even-toned, as it encourages the sub-dermal production of collagen and elastin fibers. The outcome of the procedure can be noticed instantly without any side effects.
 

If a candidate has highly sensitive skin, some redness, slight warmth may be felt on touching the skin, and appearance of white spots right after the treatment can be expected, but these go away within a few hours after the treatment. Although some patients may experience a mild tingling sensation or like a rubber band snapping against the skin when the laser handpiece hovers over the skin, the overall procedure is considered to be safe and virtually painless. As laser toning does not cause damage to the skin epidermis, there is no bruising or swelling faced by the clients. If the person develops a dark brown scab on the skin surface, after the procedure, it may take 10 to 14 days to subside while bruising may take more time to resolve. Thus they can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

 

Post-treatment care

Dr. Mysore recommends his patients to take care of the treated area by following these instructions:

  • Avoid getting exposed to the sun frequently, stay out of the sun as much as possible for at least 7-10 days. 
  • Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every 3-4 hours to prevent post-procedure side effects or complications after being exposed to the sunlight and its harmful UV rays.
  • Do not use harsh exfoliating cleansers or scrubs, bleaching creams, or retinoids on the treated area at least for three days after the treatment.
  • At least for 72 hours after the treatment, refrain from extreme hot environments like hot showers, hot tubs, and saunas.
  • Keep the treated area covered for some time to ensure quick healing without any skin infections.
