We know it well that the skin forms the most important organ of our body and it plays an important role in fending off the dust, UV radiation, dirt, toxic gases, pollution, and harmful rays of the sun. As a result, it leads to oxidative stress and degeneration of the skin components. On top of that, as we age, our skin loses its shine and luster.
Imperfection in the skin tone and skin texture is a very common occurrence. The best way to deal with these problems is laser skin toning. Laser skin toning, also known as laser facial also treat fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars, pigmentation, and many other skin conditions.
Laser skin toning is a benign alternative to skin resurfacing treatment, with minimal downtime. With laser skin toning, one can correct the facial skin pigmentations and even brighten the facial skin as well as other parts of the body.
Laser skin toning treatment makes use of specialized laser energy for reducing the signs of pigmentation. This treatment is carried out as an outpatient procedure. Hence, the patient doesn’t need to stay at the hospital overnight.

To get effective results from the treatment, a patient might need to go for 5-6 sitting. To start with this treatment procedure, you will need to talk to your cosmetic surgeon.
No pre-preparation is needed before the laser toning. However, the skin needs to be cleaned before the procedure. A numbing cream might be applied to the area going to be treated. The cream is applied 10-15 minutes before the procedure. The laser used in laser skin toning operates in Q switched mode. It heats up the skin and promotes collagen production. As the area is stirred up by the heat, triggers collagen production. The collagen rejuvenates and corrects the appearance of the skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
In this treatment, the laser targets melanin-producing cells by heating it up. The upper dermis layer of the skin is heated for gaining good results. The laser’s built-in-cooling system protects the skin from damage and also creates a calming effect on the pigment producing cells.
