The Q-Switched Nd Yag Lasers
In Q-Switched mode, the very short pulses (6ns) deliver very high peak power granting
the most efficient photo acoustic effect, with no thermal interaction with tissues.
As a result, the unwanted pigments of the skin fragmented in small particles that
are expelled through the phagocytes.

- Epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions
Pigmented lesions usually refer to melanocytic proliferations. The melanocyte comes
in a variety of shapes and sizes. Benign proliferations are often called moles or
nevi. Melanocytic proliferations are not the only reason for pigmented lesions.
There may be an increase in melanin, unassociated with an increase in melanocytes.
Aging spots, solar lentigo, cafe-au-lait macules, and dermal pigmentations as nevus
of Ota are nowadays easily treatable with lasers. Q-switched Laser devices heat
the melanin in a pigmented lesion, which causes the lesion to disappear.

The famous Carbon Ion Nano-Lambency therapy combines the ND: YAG (1064 nm) laser
and Carbon Ion Powder to effectively brighten your skin, reduce your open pores,
reduce pigmentations (Nevus of Ota, coffee spot, age spot, freckle etc) and stimulate
the regeneration of the collagen fiber of your skin.
Skin is the largest organ of the body. It is made up of two layers, the upper 'epidermis'
and the lower 'dermis'. The epidermis and the dermis are further divided into other
The lower most layer of the epidermis is known as the basal layer and it contains
organelles called 'melanosomes'. These melanosomes contain cells called melanocytes
which produce a pigment called ‘melanin’. The color of skin depends mainly on this
melanin and the amount of melanin present in the other layers of the epidermis.
The thickness of epidermis and vascularity of the epidermis are other factors affecting
the color of skin.
