Overview of

Q-Ray Laser Treatment

in Thailand

Q-Ray laser treatment utilizes fractional CO2 laser technique, producing a wavelength of 10600nm. It can penetrate to deeper skin layer to stimulate new collagen formation which offered treatment for scars, enlarged pores, and wrinkles to reach a clearer, smooth rejuvenated skin.

A laser acts by producing light energy from its laser medium that determines the wavelength produced and gives the laser its name. Each wavelength is specifically absorbed by the targeted chromophores.

CO2 lasers utilize carbon dioxide as a laser medium that produces a wavelength of 10600nm that specifically targets the water component in the tissues which makes its action specific to the tissue targeted by the laser beam as water is a basic component of all human cells.

A fractional concept was added to lasers to increase their efficacy. The fractional laser concept is when the applied laser beam is divided into multiple smaller beams to act on thousands of micro treatment zones. Unlike ablative (working on the epidermal skin layer) and non-ablative (working on the collagen in the dermal layer of the skin) laser treatment, fractional laser treatment acts on both layers.

How it works:

Q-Ray Laser Treatment

Q-Ray laser treatment is a fractionated CO2 laser technology. It uses CO2 as a laser medium to produce a wavelength of 10600nm. CO2 act on the water molecules in the targeted tissues. The fractional feature delivers a laser beam that divides or fractionates into multiple smaller beams to act on thousands of small areas called microthermal treatment zones. In between these zones, there are islands of intact cells not affected by the laser beam that promotes healing.

Q-Ray laser act on the level of epidermal and dermal layers combining the advantages of ablative and non-ablative laser techniques. In the epidermis, it causes evaporation of the superficial damaged tissue leaving a fresh intact tissue layer. In the dermal layer, it causes heat generation to eliminate old collagen strands and stimulates the production of new collagen.

The process of Q-Ray laser treatment includes:

  • Cleaning your face
  • Application of topical anesthetic layer 30-45 minutes before the treatment as the session may be painful to increase the patient comfort.
  • The device sends short-pulsed light energy to the targeted area.
  • The treatment session time range between 15-30 minutes according to the size of the targeted area. The number of sessions depends on the nature of the problem and its extensiveness; i.e. 1-2 sessions for light wrinkles and 3- sessions for a deeper one
  • Post-treatment instructions, to be strictly followed, are explained by your dermatologist.
