Birthmarks are generally either red or brown and vary greatly in size and appear on different parts of the body. Red marks consist of tiny blood vessels, while brown marks are made up of brown pigment (melanin) that protects your skin from UV rays. Facial birthmarks are common and usually are the cause of most patients’ concern. Red birthmarks include “strawberry”, port-wine stains, stork bites and hemangiomas while brown birthmarks may consist of moles, “café-au-lait” or Mongolian spots. The café-au-lait is the most common brown birthmark and is flat, light brown and well circumscribed. Some birthmarks may actually be associated with health problems so be sure to consult your doctor carefully to determine if this is the case before proceeding with treatments.

Immediately after q-Switch Nd: YAG Laser treatment, the area will appear blotchy for several hours and the brown area will darken in colour. After 1-2 weeks, the darkened pigment naturally “washes off” to leave behind a much lighter colour.
Most birthmarks will remain this lighter colour, and you will have the option to decide on additional birthmark removal treatment sessions to further reduce the colour if you remain unsatisfied with the overall appearance. It is essential to use a high-quality sunscreen after treatment to reduce the risk of re-pigmentation or hyperpigmentation.
Dull skin is a natural part of aging, but the most common cause of it is a lack of quality sleep (less than 7 hours). This is often linked to busy city lifestyles led by so many individuals today, with work and social obligations taking up most of the day, leaving little time for rest and recuperation.
Dark eye circles, eye bags and wrinkles will begin to form, contributing to the skin’s tired appearance overall. It will also become thinner and drier, leading to a build-up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface which can be exacerbated by an unbalanced diet. Dull skin can also be caused by improper cleansing of the skin, as dirt that remains can clog the pores, making it difficult for them to breathe.
Q-switch Nd: YAG laser works on the skin by improving the quality and texture of the skin through the subtle heating of dermal layers. This process stimulates collagen regeneration whilst refining the skin’s texture leaving the skin vibrantly rejuvenated.
Melasma occurs when melanocytes are stimulated, melanin is produced in large quantities which groups together in patches on the skin, oftentimes on the face. Women are more at risk of developing melasma, with men only accounting for 10% of all affected individuals. Triggers that have been identified include overexposure to the sun, hormonal changes and selected beauty products that cause skin irritation.
Pregnant women are also prone to contracting melasma, also referred to as a pregnancy mask. There is an increase in hormones that trigger melanocytes in the second and third trimesters, but it is believed that high levels of progesterone cause melasma as opposed to oestrogen – a view backed by clinical studies.
Melasma is one of deeper pigmentation that can be treated using Q-switch Nd: YAG laser by shattering pigment deposits beneath the skin. This treatment is a low-energy laser treatment which is an effective treatment to reduce the appearance of the melasma on the skin.
The skin has its own mechanism to combat harmful UV rays from the sun and produces melanin to protect itself. When the melanin produced is focused in a group of small spots, this leads to the development of grey, brown or black age spots across the skin.
Quick production of melanin may also result in larger patches of concentrated melanin on the skin – this is known as hyperpigmentation. These patches are usually darker in colour and can appear on any part of the body exposed to the sun.
Q-switch laser is a dark spots treatment that works by creates an invisible beam of light that specifically targets the brown pigment or melanin presents in the dark spots, age spots and pigmentation without any effect on the surrounding skin.

The Nd: YAG laser’s unique combination of short-wavelength light and rapid, high-intensity pulses makes it a very good option for tattoo removal as it helps to maximise the destruction of skin pigmentation and tattoo ink. The treatment minimises scarring as the laser preserves the surrounding skin and focuses its light energy only on the tattoo ink, breaking it up and leaving it to be removed by your body’s natural cleansing process.
Repeated treatments over a period of several weeks are recommended and usually needed for good results. On average, there will be up to a 90-95% reduction of your tattoo’s appearance and almost all colours can be removed except certain shades of yellow and green. Tattoos that are smaller in size require fewer pulses to larger tattoos, but in both cases you should see a gradual improvement in your tattoo and it will appear lighter after each subsequent session.
All tattoos are unique and thus removal must be tailored specifically for each tattoo. As mentioned earlier, green and yellow shades are harder to remove and thus must be considered before selecting this treatment. Black ink absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest colour to remove using the laser treatment.
Large pores are products of skin that loses elasticity and plugged by dust, dead skin cells and excess sebum. The plugged pores are inflamed and expand, causing us to look dotted. To help fix this problem, Pico laser induces collagen production, strengthening the skin tissues. This would add elasticity to the skin and allowing pores to return to its natural state.
Stretch marks are caused by the skin that loses its elasticity after expanded in a short amount of time. They create gaps between the skin tissue, which can be discoloured or darker than other parts of the body, or depressed. They are fibrous tissues that caused by the build-up of collagen (which is necessary to accommodate to the expansion).
Stretch marks is normal, but still worrisome to many. To help treat this problem, Q-Switch laser can be used. It breaks down the fibrous tissues, and boost collagen production on the surrounding areas, strengthening the skin tissue pull. It also helps to flatten the depressed skin that causes scar on the stretch marks. However, please note that a couple of sessions are needed to get rid of stretch marks completely.
