Laser Toning improves the appearance of the skin in both the short run and the long term. The procedure results in instant rejuvenation of the face, neck, hands and décolleté because it plumps, smoothes and clarifies. Laser Toning also promotes sub-dermal collagen production so that skin texture, color and tone continue to improve long after your appointment at the plastic surgeon. Regular laser toning can diminish surface flaws like wrinkles and brown spots, or imperfections caused by conditions like acne and rosacea. Laser toning is painless, though patients may experience a sensation of heat as the laser wand passes over the skin. Laser Toning, known by us as 'The Gym for the Skin,' is an essential element of the NYDG Triad Medical Facial and Pedicure Triad, two of our signature treatments designed for superior maintenance of skin health and beauty.
Skin toning refers to the use of Q-Switched lasers for non ablative skin rejuvenation. This term is more common in Asian countries. In skin toning, multiple passes of low-dose Q-Switched Nd:YAG are delivered through a large spot size to induce sublethal injury to melanosomes causing fragmentation and rupture of melanin granules into the cytoplasm. This effect is highly selective for melanosomes and leads to overall skin brightness. Moreover, the subthreshold injury to the surrounding dermis stimulates the formation of collagen that results in tighter skin.
