The Qs-Nd Yag Laser treatment causes a minor throb at the site. Most cases do not require anesthetics; however sensitive skin may require applying numbing cream few minutes before the procedure.

During the treatment procedure, laser light is passed over the targeted skin. The laser beams are microscopically shattered over the spots to breakdown the pigment into tiny particles. This breakdown process helps the body to process the particles easily and is eliminated by the body. The treatment duration is about ten minutes and is completed on an outpatient basis. Few may experience mild to moderate irritation on the treated skin and lasts for few days depending on the depth and amount of pigment to be removed.

For other parts of the body, the patient can return to their normal activity the next day. Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure for few days after the treatment.
