GREEN TONING

Looking for a way to improve your skin tone and texture? A green toning laser may be just what you need!

At Advanced Laser Clinic we’re excited to share how this laser technology advancement is targeting multiple skin texture and pigmentation issues using an ultra-fast, non-ablative medical grade StarWalker MaQX laser. Dramatic, visible skin lightening and tone improvements are achieved without the discomfort or downtime.

The award winning StarWalker MaQX laser uses a powerful 2-step system to reduce unwanted facial pigment, under-eye circles, freckles, and uneven skin tone.

Green toning is safe for Asian skin that is prone to hyperpigmentation. It also reduces pore size, improves skin colour, improves the appearance of sun damage, and helps smooth skin texture. In fact, the StarWalker MaQX is so multifaceted, that we can treat melasma, hyperpigmentation, and redness at both the dermal and epidermal levels.

How Does the Green Toning Laser Work?

 

The green toning laser is a new and innovative way to treat pigmentation and enhance the overall appearance of your skin. This dual-wavelength laser uses quick, nanosecond pulses to target both the dermal and epidermal skin layers, providing a more thorough and effective treatment than other laser technologies.

 

The green toning laser shatters pigments so that the body’s lymphatic system can naturally flush them out, resulting in a more even and radiant complexion. To put it more simply, green toning is a type of laser treatment that doesn't require anesthesia or damage the surface layers of skin. It's used to treat pigmentation issues like melasma, freckles, sunspots, and scars.

 

The MaQX modality uses multiple wavelengths to target both pigment and capillaries for comprehensive transformation. Green toning can provide clearer, even-toned skin with additional benefits like firmer tone, minimized pores, and a natural glow.

What Areas Can Green Toning Improve?

 

Green toning lightens and evens pigmentation anywhere on the body. Our clients typically brighten their face, décolletage, and hands, which experience the most sun exposure and environmental stress. Green toning is also used to improve post-inflammatory pigmentation (PIH) due to skin injuries such as burns, cuts, or surgical scars.

Even Skin Tone Maintenance

 

Once you’ve reached the desired clear complexion with green toning, we recommend that you maintain a fresh, clean look with 2 to 3 maintenance treatments per year. There are also easy ways that you can prevent sunspots and melasma from returning when you practice smart skincare at home.

  1. Investigate any health or medical cause for reoccurring melasma, since it is sometimes triggered by hormone imbalances or medication such as oral contraception.

  2. Daily sun protection is critical once you’ve invested time and effort into your blemish-free skin. Concerning melasma, UV radiation is one of the key factors that exacerbate this issue. This is a great time to commit to covering up and wearing sunblock all year long.

    Yes, as the laser treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive process which makes use of multi-laser technology., it is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types. Apart from this, it has minimal to no downtime and produces satisfactory results.
  • Do you offer numbing for Laser hair removal?
    Unfortunately, topical numbing creams are not safe nor effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation you feel in treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Unfortunately numbing cream cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise the discomfort that may be felt at the follicle. Please ensure that no occlusive creams are present in the treatment areas when undergoing laser hair removal treatments.

At Laser Clinics Australia, we also offer various options of protective eyewear to ensure your safety at all times during treatment.
  • What kind of results can I expect?
    A majority of patients who undergo this treatment see an 80-90% reduction in their hair growth. and the hair follicles that remain after treatment are damaged, meaning that they will produce a finer hair than before treatment. In the weeks following the laser treatment, you will be noticing less hair, slower-growing hair, and even hair falling out. There is also a reduction in hair bumps and ingrown hairs after your first treatment. It is important to apply moisturizers and cool compresses immediately after the treatment if you feel any discomfort in the treated area. Following the treatment, overall you should be able to see a loss of hair over the month. It is recommended to use sunscreen whenever you step out. Although there are some complications that may occur with the process of laser hair removal, as it is with any medical procedure, these are usually minor and rarely occur. Any possible effects of laser hair removal will be reviewed by your clinician during your consultation.
  • Pre & post care for laser hair removal treatments.
    - You are required to shave the entire area you wish to get treated prior to the day of your laser hair removal treatment. - Avoid using exfoliators such as alpha beta hydroxyl acid, alcohol toners or any other creams which might be irritating, for one-week before your laser hair removal treatment. - Do not apply any perfumes, deodorants or any type of makeup to the area to be treated on the day of your treatment. - Do not go for any artificial tanning such as tanning beds and spray tans within 2-3 weeks prior to your treatment. - After your hair removal treatment, you may experience the growth of hair for up to two weeks. However, this is only the treated hair that is being shed from the follicle. - Following your laser hair removal treatment, you will likely experience slight redness and swelling around the hair follicles and some mild discomfort, mostly similar to sunburn. Cool packs may be applied. - You may observe during and after your session the smell of burned hair. However, this is normal. - It is essential to avoid swimming pools and spas treated with chemicals or chlorine until the skin returns to its normal condition. - Until the skin returns to normal condition, you must not have any facials or peels on any treated facial areas. - If the underarm area is being treated, do not use deodorant for 24 to 48 hours. - Following the treatment, do not rub, or pick the area which is treated.

  • Scheduling your next treatment.
    - Shaving is recommended between sessions and 1 or 2 days prior to your next appointment. - The sessions of the facial area treatment are scheduled in four week intervals and four to six weeks for other areas. - Disrupting or missing the appointments can cause less than optimal results. - Between the schedule of treatments, you should not undergo Electrolysis, waxing, threading or tweezing.
