Q-switched laser


Quality-switched laser (Q-Switched) is a non-invasive laser that creates high-intensity pulsed beam light. The laser beam pulses last a mere billionth of a second. It is used to remove unwanted brown spots, freckles, birth marks, hyperpigmented areas on the body or tattoos. It is also the same laser used in carbon peeling, where a layer of carbon is applied and lasered off to allow for deep cleansing of the skin and pores.
