Laser toning is a procedure which uses a Q switched NdYAG laser at low energy to reduce the pigmentation over the skin. The procedure uses low energy, and thus, protects the skin from any side effects, making the treatment very safe for all skin types. The various types of toning include the toning with laser alone, or in combination with a carbon micro-suspension. The first pass of the laser warms the skin and drives the carbon particles into the pores. The second pass of laser vaporizes the carbon particles, and the heat of the vaporization rejuvenates the skin and tightens the pores. The final pass of the laser tightens the skin.
