What Is Q-Switch Laser and How Does It Work?

Q-Switch Laser is a type of laser whose pulse time is shortened to one millionth of a second. The pulse energy used in shorter periods of time is higher than lasers that use a continuous wavelength. In Q Switch laser treatment, according to the type of pulse used, the laser beam causes effects on the target tissue such as cavitation, shock wave or thermal field.

Q Switch lasers are in demand laser types especially used for unwanted brown spots on the skin, sun and age spots, tattoo removal, skin rejuvenation and carbon peeling.
