Neodymium Yag (Nd:Yag) laser is capable of targeting deeper layers of the skin compared with traditional modalities with a wavelength of 1064nm.
This laser works by emitting a wavelength of high energy light to targeted skin cells and is particularly effective at penetrating tissue pigment such as haemoglobin and melanin. Once these cells are heated a process referred to as photocoagulation occurs and they are destroyed. As a result, skin redness and discolouration is successfully reduced.
The Nd:YAG provides upto 15 treatment applications and is appropriate for all skin types.
The system is optimised for:
- Treating vascular lesions including facial and spider veins
- Age spots
- Hair removal
The Nd:YAG is a highly popular treatment as it requires no down-time and is extremely effective at restoring skin tone and providing a more homogenous complexion.
