The Lumenis® Q-Switch technology enables tailoring of the treatment according to the type of skin, to effectively target the dark pigment and destroy it. Ultrashort laser pulses target the treated area in the skin and break it into small particles that are naturally dissolved by your body; the surrounding skin is left intact.

One of the few practices in Charlotte NC, we were able to offer Q Switch ND:YAG  laser to our patients, that will reduce and, many cases, eliminate unwanted pigment that occurs in isolated spots. The Q Switched laser is effective at removing hyperpigmentation and discolorations of the skin including:

  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Sun freckles
  • Pigmentation from acne scars
  • Melasma
  • Dark tattoos

Q Switch is an excellent addition to skin rejuvenation increasing collagen and elastin levels which maintain the elasticity and firmness of your skin. This laser leaves the skin brighter, more radiant, and glowing.

You treatment plan will be determine after on site evaluation of your skin lesions. Depending on the spots depth you may need 2-3 treatments. Some spots may comeback after a period of time. Proper SPF protection is required post treatment. We will recommend you post treatment home regimen to enhanced the results of your treatments. We may reefer you to a dermatologist if some spots needs additional analysis or biopsy.

There are a variety of ways to reduce pigmentation and improve sun damage. Each patient will have a different and individualized recommendation. Your skin type will likely respond better to one type of treatment over another.

Combined protocols is often recommended for the best results. CryoPen, Thermoclear RF, CoolPeel CO2, Fractional Resurfacing, Plasma Pen and ZO skin care may be recommended in combination with IPL phototherapy or even instead due to various nature of the skin pigments and uneven tone.

    Charlotte's Best Aesthetician

    Nina is the best aesthetician in Charlotte! I have known her for several years and have not only seen the work she has done on her clients but experienced results myself. Her expertise with facials and skin care is unsurpassed. Her laser knowledge is my favorite, and I always have great results. Her passion and attention to detail are evident, and she always takes time to listen to concerns. I love how Nina has helped me meet my skincare goals over the years, and compliments from others prove that she is the best!

    I've always assumed I'd have to endure acne issues for the rest of my life. I'm in my early twenties and have had terrible acne for as long as I can remember. I've gone to every dermatologist in Charlotte, and after just one treatment with Nina, I began to see results. My skin has been a never-ending battle up until I started going here. It's affordable (I'm job hunting and can still manage coming here once a month), and it works like magic. I've had tiny acne bumps and constant painful breakouts all over my face for as long as I can remember, and not one doctor has been able to alleviate them or make them go away altogether. Nina can take each patient and customize their treatments, so there's a guarantee there are results. I wear my hair back and haven't touched my makeup drawer since my first treatment.

    I’ve been Nina’s client for several years and trust her with my skin completely. Over the years, I have done hydro facials, dermaplaning, laser hair removal, Virtue RF microneedling and face massages with Nina. The results are excellent. My favorite treatment is Virtue. PPS offers great specials almost every month, which makes treatments and medical grade products more affordable. I highly recommend Nina as an experienced esthetician.
