What is Laser Toning?

We have 3 types of laser toning treatments we offer to target skin concerns, including Laser Toning, Gold Toning, and Revital treatment.

Laser Toning – Nd Yag laser in London for dark skin is a gentler alternative to ablative laser treatments, with no downtime and a low risk of complications such as, pigmentary changes, burns, or scarring. This is a great laser treatment for dark skin hyperpigmentation as it removes and breaks down the melanin and melanosomes in the skin that cause melasma, and hyperpigmentation marks on the skin from previous acne and other blemishes. This is also one of the best treatment for pigmentation on Asian skin as it does not lead to burns and gently breaks down the pigmentation.

Revital Treatment – This 1064 Nd Yag laser in London achieves thermal neocollagenesis, to promote collagen and elastin production, kill acne-causing bacteria, and regulate sebum production in the skin. This treatment is good for acne as well as skin rejuvenation.

Gold Toning – Gold Toning’s principle is not to destroy the target blood vessels like traditional lasers do, but to normalize them, thus reducing inflammation. This limits the damage to the surrounding area and restores the healthy state of the affected cells in the skin. It uses 595 nm, to gently target the inflammation and calm it down.


Before any laser treatments, it’s important to limit the use of products and medications that can cause photosensitivity such as; Retinoids, Tretinoin, AHA’s, BHA’s, other exfoliating acids, St Johns wart, and any other medications that make your skin sensitive.


After the treatment, you can expect some erythema, and sometimes a tingling sensation can be felt, however, this will die down after a couple of hours to the next day.

Your aesthetician will advise any personalised aftercare needed and what you can do maximise the efficacy of the treatment at home for best results.

IPL vs Gold Toning for Rosacea?

IPL is an excellent treatment for rosacea, it’s a broad spectrum of intense pulse light that delivers energy to disperse inflamed blood vessels. Gold Toning is another effective option to target facial flushing, rosacea, and post-acne scarring, it’s a gentler approach to IPL, therefore requires more sessions. There is very minimal discomfort felt during Gold Toning and after the session, only mild erythema is apparent on the skin.

This treatment can be combined with the following procedures:

The combination of treatments can be discussed at your consultation following with the bespoke treatment plan.
