Our top treatment for flawless skin.
A common thing we get asked by our patients in their 30s and 40s is how to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles and achieve skin that glows.
‘Qswitched YAG is a multi-functional treatment which addresses so many common skin concerns. It can be used to treat sun spots, age spots, freckles, pigmentation and some birthmarks, as well as improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, large pores, acne scarring and redness caused by sun exposure. It can even get rid of coloured tattoos,’ explains Kristin (more on this in the weeks to come).

‘I’m in my 30s,’ says Lizzy, ‘I have some freckles on my nose from sun damage, the pores on my cheeks are obvious and yes, shock/ horror, I have some lines developing. I jumped at the chance of a procedure which could go to work on all these problems.’
‘Kristin explained to me that while the Qswitched YAG can be slightly uncomfortable, it’s not painful, so no anaesthesia is required. Once your face is cleaned, you can just get started,’ says Lizzy.
‘Kristin provided me with goggles to protect my eyes and talked me through the treatment, which only took 20 minutes for my entire face. The treatment was smooth sailing, however I did flinch a few times as the sensation feels like a sharp flick on the skin but that quickly goes away.’
‘At the end of the procedure my skin was a bit red and hot, so I held an ice pack to my face for five minutes until it cooled down, then I went straight back to work. That night my skin felt a bit tight, and I did end up with a little bit of scabbing on my nose, which I could easily cover with makeup and it was gone within a week.’
Have a special event coming up?
‘The great thing about Qswitched YAG,’ explains Kristin, ‘ is that just one treatment will start to even out the colour of your skin, with freckles and redness reduced, revealing skin that really glows. If you have a wedding or other event or just want to brighten up your skin, 20 minutes of YAG is all it takes. We recommend coming in four weeks prior to your event for the treatment, in the case you have mild scabbing like Lizzy did.’
‘If wrinkles, large pores and fine lines are also your concern, we suggest two to six treatments because skin rejuvenation relies on the stimulation of new collagen and elastin growth, which occurs more slowly over time. With many of our patients, we set up personalised treatment plans that may have a mixture of Qswitched YAG, Hydrafacial and skin peels, to make sure we achieve the desired results.’
