The process of laser toning is nothing more complicated than the controlled application of laser light to the dermal layers of the skin in order to break up the pigment that contributes to the appearance of dark spots and an uneven skin tone. Without injuring the epidermis, non-ablative lasers are used in laser toning. This thermal burn prompts the dermis to produce collagen, which in turn revitalizes the skin.
While laser toning is a painless technique that doesn’t even require an anesthetic, some little warmth may be experienced. Reportedly effective laser toning treatments would necessitate numerous sessions, the exact number of which will vary by skin type and the degree of sun damage to the face.
