How Does it Work
Laser Toning is the application of specialized laser energy to reduce visible skin pigmentation.
The laser energy gently targets the melanin in the cells breaking it up for the body’s natural removal process. Because the treatment is gentle, multiple passes are needed in order to target deep into the tissue.
