What is a Q Switch ND YAG Laser?

The term “Q-switch” refers to the type of pulse created by the laser. Q Switch ND YAG lasers create laser beam pulses that last mere billionths of a second. Because the energy from the laser is emitted over such a brief period of time, the energy is concentrated into very powerful pulses.

How does the Q Switch Laser work?

Dark spots and pigmented birthmarks are quickly removed with our M22 Q Switch. The laser energy shatters the pigment molecules into tiny particles so the body’s clean-up system can remove them.
