Do not use Q-switched laser for pores, pimples, wrinkles and saggy skin!

For the Q-switched to have ANY effect at all on the above, it MUST to be used very frequently and at high settings. This causes darkened spots on your face, or worse; permanent white spots!
IF YOU START TO NOTICE TINY WHITE/RED DOTS ON THE FACE, STOP YOUR FREQUENT Q-SWITCHED IMMEDIATELY!
The reason for this is because the Q-Switched laser generates photoTHERMAL effects, leading to HYPER and HYPO pigmentation (PIH). It’s a laser that is designed for INFREQUENT USAGE! Use it carefully, and sparingly, only for brown pigmentation removal.
Q-switched nanosecond lasers shouldn’t be done lifelong. Once pigmentation woes are solved, other lasers help much more with face care/aging maintenance!
