The quality (Q)-switched neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser is one of the first non-ablative lasers to be used for facial resurfacing and photorejuvenation. Recently, the method of low-fluence Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers known as 'laser toning' has been used for non-ablative skin rejuvenation and for the treatment of melasma in Asian countries. We report our experience of using a novel Q-switched Nd:YAG laser that was operated as a dual pulse at half fluence and 140-μs intervals compared with conservative mode laser.
