Laser Toning

Laser Toning

Laser toning is a laser treatment that was first developed in Korea as a way of treating melasma and other skin pigment conditions that were previously deemed difficult to treat. Usually, laser treatment that removes skin conditions like moles and freckles use high fluence energy that focused on destroying the melanin that causes the pigmentation. However, pigmentation like melasma when treated with the same laser caused complications like hypopigmentation (whitened patches or spots in the skin). So Korean doctors began using much lower fluence energy multiple times and for multiple sessions, which showed promising practical effect, and is now one of the most popular treatment in Korea 

WHAT IS LASER TONING?
Laser Toning is not a type of laser, but a method or technique of using the laser. It is a technique where low fluence laser is used multiple times.

Difference Between Laser Toning and other Laser Pigmentation Removal treatments
Laser pigment removal for various skin conditions such as moles, warts, and skin tags involves using high fluence laser to destroy the melanocytes. Laser toning involves a much lower fluence laser shot in multiple intervals, thereby not destroying melanocytes but only the more mature melanosomes. Normal laser techniques were not able to fully treat melasma but laser toning is said to treat it with less complications.

Difference Between Toning and IPL
 
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
•    IPL differs from laser in that it is not a ray of light of a single wavelength, but multiple rays of light at different wavelengths shot at once.
•    IPL is effective at removing various types of pigments closer to the surface of the skin (epidermis) like freckles, sun spots, age spots, as well as treating acne, acne scars, light wrinkles, and widened pores at once.
•    After an IPL treatment, you may get scabs that need to be healed naturally for better results.
Laser Toning
•    Laser toning involves a ray of light at a specific wavelength to treat pigments located deeper in the skin (dermis)
•    Since laser toning is able to reach the deeper dermal lesions of the skin, it can treat more difficult pigment problems like dark freckles, birthmarks and melasmas
•    Laser toning does not leave scabs since the treatment occurs deep within the skin.


AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR SKIN TONING?
•    Someone who has darker skin tone and wanting to lighten it
•    Someone who has melasmas, blemishes or pigmentation
•    Someone who has red or brown acne scars
•    Someone who has irregular skin tone
