The Yag Q-Switch laser is an ablative, non-invasive laser which creates a high-energy beam of light. The Q-switch allows the laser to send very powerful short bursts of energy, lasting a mere billionth of a second. It effectively treats spider veins, vascular lesions, birth marks, skin tags, and is also an effective laser treatment for tattoo removal.


What is an ablative laser?

Ablative lasers are 'solid beam' lasers, they are not broken up into smaller beams like the non-ablative lasers (IPL). Because of this they are more powerful and can be used for tattoo removal and for removing unwanted skin tissue, depending on the laser setting and requirement. The YAG Q-switch is a very advanced laser utilized for a variety of aesthetic and medical treatments when used by our expert technicians.
