About Skin Toning

Skin toning refers to the use of Q-Switched lasers for non ablative skin rejuvenation. This term is more common in Asian countries. In skin toning, multiple passes of low-dose  Q-Switched Nd:YAG are delivered through a large spot size to induce sublethal injury to melanosomes causing fragmentation and rupture of melanin granules into the cytoplasm. This effect is highly selective for melanosomes and leads to overall skin brightness. Moreover, the subthreshold injury to the surrounding dermis stimulates the formation of collagen that results in tighter skin.

The Lumenis Solution

The Lumenis Q-Switched Nd:YAG was developed to enable skin toning, by treatment of pigmented lesions, using a large and non-disposable tip of 6mm. Using a top-hat beam profile ensures control of homogeneous energy delivery and maximum safety without hot-spots nor any risk of side effects or complication for the patient.

Advantages For Physicians
