Q. WHAT IS ND YAG LASER?
There are many lasers in the market. Nd:Yag laser is named after the laser medium, Neodymium: yytrium-alumunium-garnet. This laser was specifically designed to help with pigmentation, reckless and also can help removing old tattoos.
Q.HOW DOES ND YAG LASER WORK?
ND YAG Laser comes in 2 wavelengths, 1064 nm and 532 nm. It is a non-ablative laser, which means that there is no break in skin tissue continuity during the treatment. It is designed to target pigment cells. This specific wavelength are absorbed preferentially by pigments (melanin) and the resultant heat will cause generation and propagation of waves that cause damage to the cells containing pigment. These damaged cells will then be cleared from the site resulting in a lightening of the pigmented site.

For treating targeted pigmentation abonormalities like freckles, lentigenes, etc a numbing cream is applied for 30-45 minutes efore the procedure for lightening and rejuvenation procedures, no numbing is required. Post procedure regular use of sunscreen I s recommended. There will be white frosting at the area of freckle and lentigene treated which would form a thin crust and fall off.
