How Does Nd:YAG Work?
The Nd:YAG travels at a 1064 nm wavelength, which allows it to target a variety of pigments. The spot size for the laser is three to five mm, so the treatment time may be much less than that of other laser devices.
What are the Benefits?
For laser hair removal, Nd:YAG sets itself apart from other treatment options due to the fact that it is ideal for dark skin. Other devices require that you have fair skin and no tan, but Nd:YAG works on skin type I to type VI.
Many professionals are now considering the Nd:YAG laser as the first choice when it comes to vein treatments. The laser device is able to efficiently treat large veins in the legs with very few side effects.
For erbium laser peels, the Nd:YAG laser is used during the first step to condition the skin for the rest of the treatment. This allows the Er:YAG laser to be more effective during the peel so you can experience greater skin rejuvenation.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Virtually anyone is a good candidate for a treatment with Nd:YAG due to it’s versatility. Even those with darker skin can now benefit from laser treatments, which did not used to be the case. You can visit our practice to learn more about whether you are a candidate, and that will give us a chance to develop a personalized treatment plan with you.
