WHAT IS GOLD TONING?
The gold toning laser has been engineered to provide a variety of affordable, versatile and efficacious treatment options with customisable parameters and built-in safety features. Gold toning offers the treatment of vascular, pigmentation and other cosmetic concerns.
Gold toning is also used to remove or lighten the appearance of melasma by selectively destroying melanin and melansomes in the treatment area. Its technological superiority and versatility allow it to expand its range of treatment applications, which includes:
- subduing inflammatory acne
- reducing redness that can remain after acne treatment
- improving facial flushing
- post-laser flushing
- eliminating melasma (in combination with laser toning)
- non-ablative resurfacing
WHO IS IT FOR?
This treatment is recommended for acne sufferers who wish to avoid the adverse side effects arising from the prolonged use of systemic drugs and topical creams, such as dryness of the skin and mouth, delayed wound healing, depression and joint pain. This is also recommended for those seeking an effective solution for melasma or the removal of tattoo pigments.
The combination of the gold toning high peak power and short pulse width ensures that energy is delivered efficiently to maximise results while minimising collateral thermal damage to the surrounding tissue of the target treatment area. Gold toning is a very fast and safe laser procedure that effectively subdues inflammatory acne, as well as speeds up resolution of the lingering redness that would otherwise last for many months after acne has resolved.
During consultation, do provide your doctor with any pertinent information on your medical history, pre-existing medical and health conditions, and medication and/or supplements you are currently consuming. Your doctor will discuss your available options, and design a personalised course of treatment for optimal results that accommodates your sensitivity and comfort level.
The procedure typically takes 10 – 15 minutes to complete, but the duration will vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
Those undergoing acne treatment will see a significant reduction in just a few treatments. However, the effects of the treatment will depend on the severity of your condition, the treatment schedule and number of sessions, and/or the synergic effect of combination treatments. Gold toning is typically recommended on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for less than five sessions, unless the condition is unusually severe.
For optimal results, your doctor may recommend a combination of treatments, such as comedone extraction, chemical peeling, photodynamic therapy and other laser treatments.
The short-pulsed wavelength of gold toning limits the thermal effect to a minimum, ensuring the treatment is gentle enough for all skin types and the incidences of epidermal damage and side effects are kept to a minimal.
