Laser Toning is an effective non-invasive technique which is used to address skin concerns like tone and texture imperfections caused due to aging and environmental factors like Sun’s UV rays, pollution and smoke.

How Does Laser Toning Work?
Laser toning is a non-ablative treatment which doesn’t remove or damage the superficial layers of the skin but causes controlled injury in the dermis which is the layer of skin which lies beneath the epidermis. The energy produced by the laser heats up the dermis and stimulates a skin repair response which causes collagen regeneration.

Further, via subcellular selective photothermolysis, Laser Toning helps to break down the pigments caused by epidermal melanocyte (pigment producing cells) which is then cleared by the body’s immune system.

Benefits Of Laser Toning

A) Stimulates Collagen Production
One of the key benefits of Laser Toning is that it Stimulates Collagen Production.This in turn addresses a gamut of skin concerns. Collagen is a wonder protein that helps keep your youthful appearance intact. It does so by maintaining skin elasticity and improving the skin texture, tone and color. This aids in:

  • Reduction Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
    As the skin elasticity improves with collagen production, the skin becomes firmer and there is visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Skin Restoration And Rejuvenation
    Collagen production aids skin restoration and rejuvenation which gives the skin a supple and youthful look and helps it to glow from within.

 

B) Addresses Blemishes And Scars
Another important benefit of Laser Toning is that it helps address blemishes and scars caused due to various skin conditions like Acne, Melasma, Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, Freckles and Rosacea.

Laser Toning has proven to be an effective method for treating Melasma particularly. It was observed that traditional treatments resulted in destruction and death of pigment containing cells which led to inflammation and was followed by repigmentation or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Since the fluence used in Laser Toning is very less, there is no occurrence of death of cells which reduces the chances of recurrence of pigmentation significantly.

C) Non- Surgical Procedure
It is a safe, painless non surgical procedure with zero downtime and long lasting results.

D) No Side Effects
At Dr. Divya’s Skin and Hair Solutions, we use FDA approved Laser Lutronic Spectra along with time tested protocols. There are absolutely no side effects of this treatment. One may experience some redness after the procedure which vanishes within a few minutes to few hours of the treatment.

What Is The Procedure Like?
Depending on your skin concern, Dr. Divya Sharma recommends the number of sessions along with a tailored skincare regime which is to be followed pre and post sessions. Usually it is suggested to undertake  6-8 sessions with a minimum gap of two weeks.

Like any other laser treatment, during Laser Toning, a protective eye gear is provided to the patient and then a beam of laser light is targeted towards the affected area.

We, at Dr. Divya’s Skin and Hair Solutions highly recommend this procedure which can help turn back the time and restore your lost glow.

Frequently asked questions

We now have an FAQ list that we hope will help you answer some of the more common ones.

1. What is a chemical peel?

In this procedure, an agent is applied to the skin which causes exfoliation of the skin and gives a regenerated surface that looks younger and better.

2. Can we do chemical peels at home?

They should not be attempted at home and should be done by a qualified Dermatologist only.

3. What are the uses of chemical peels?

The chemical peel can be used for pre-party glow, superficial lines and wrinkles, active pimples and scarring to even tough to treat conditions like stretch marks. Depending on the type, most of the common skin concerns can be addressed with chemical peels.

4. Are chemical peels safe to use?

Chemical peels are safest to use if the choice of patient and the peel match with each other. A darker skin type like most of our Indian skin tones would be more suited for superficial to very superficial chemical peels while a Caucasian skin would require medium to deep peels for better results. An experienced clinician can examine and decide the safest peel and is the best person to perform a chemical peel procedure.

5. What are the types of chemical peels?

The peels are classified by their depth of penetration. They are of the following types:

  1. Very superficial chemical peels
    • Salicylic acid 20–30%
    • Glycolic acid 50%
    • Jessner’s solution, 1-3 coats
    • Modifiefd Jessner’s solution
    • Mandelic acid 30-40%
    • Triochloroacetic acid 10-20%, 1 coat
  2. Superficial  – Destruction of part or all of the epidermis
    • Glycolic acid 50-70% until redness
    • TCA 20-35%
    • Salicylic acid 30% + TCA 20%
  3. Medium depth chemical peel – involves epidermis and part of dermis
    • Glycolic acid 70% + TCA 35%
    • Jessner’s solution + TCA 35%
  4. Deep Chemical Peels – reaches upto the reticular dermis
    • Baker Gordon’s formula (2.1% croton in 50% phenol)

6. What are the various types of chemical peels?

The peels are of various types-

  • Uperficial peels that go up to stratum corneum e.g. Salicylic acid, Glycolic acid 30- 50%, and Jessner’s solution
  • Superficial light peels- They reach up to basal layer e.g. GA 50 to 70%
  • Medium depth peels- They reach up to dermis e.g. TCA 35- 50%, GA 70%, 88% Phenol
  • Deep peels like Baker Gordon phenol peel
  • Lipohydroxy acid (LHA) A new group of agents which are used to exfoliate and remove dead skin giving skin a smooth, shiny surface.

7. How do we prepare the skin before the chemical peel? Is it necessary?

The skin should be ideally prepared before the procedure to avoid any complication. Also the priming agent enhances the penetration and the effectiveness of the peeling agent. The pigmentary cells are subdued and this prevents any pigmentation. Various agents like hydroquinone, kojic acid, arbutin, and vitamin C can be used for priming the skin before procedure.

8. Are these agents 'chemicals' and harmful?

Most of these agents are naturally derived and purified to get the best ingredient. Generally, most of these peels, especially superficial and very superficial give gentle exfoliation and peeling. It is one of the biggest myths that these chemicals are harmful.

  • Priming of the skin is a must. Dr. Divya Sharma believes in a proper pre-peel regimen to avoid complications related to peeling.
  • The skin should not be tanned prior to treatment.
  • The patient should not have a keloidal tendency.
  • Any drugs causing increased photosensitivity, aspirin or blood thinners should be stopped one week before the procedure.

9. What are the common side effects of chemical peel?

Redness and slight itching sensation is common with superficial peels. A little outbreak of pimples can be commonly seen in the first few days after the peel. Swelling, crusting are common with medium to deep peels only.

10. Who is not a suitable candidate for the procedure?

Patients with a history of keloid, herpes labialis, SLE, photosensitivity, and suntanned skin should avoid doing chemical peels. Any pre-existing infection should be treated prior to a chemical peel procedure.
