HOW DOES THE ND: YAG LASER WORK?
This Q-switched laser offers rapid pulses that can effectively shatter ink in tattoos or melanin in some types of skin pigmentation. The laser targets the ink or melanin without harming surrounding skin and tissue, reducing discomfort, side effects, and downtime. Although patients may need a series of treatment sessions to achieve their desired results, the improvements will be long-lasting.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results of your nd:YAG laser treatment will become evident once your skin has healed from your final treatment session. In some cases, these results will be permanent.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER TREATMENT?
Recovery after an nd:YAG laser treatment is usually minimal. You may experience some mild swelling, redness, itching, or scabbing at the treatment site, but this should not prohibit you from your daily activities.
IS THE nd:YAG LASER SAFE?
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Side effects associated with the nd:YAG laser are usually mild and temporary. You might notice some redness and swelling around the treatment area, which should subside within a day or two. Make sure you protect the treated area from direct sun exposure to avoid potential damage to the skin.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE nd:YAG LASER TREATMENT?
