GentleYAG (1064nm long pulsed Nd- YAG laser)
Long-Pulsed ND-YAG Laser
The long-pulsed Nd-YAG laser is a versatile laser system used to remove hair in darker skinned individuals and tanned individuals. In addition, the long-pulsed Nd-YAG is also used to remove spider veins on the legs. Unlike the alexandrite laser, the long-pulsed Nd-YAG laser can safely be used on darker skinned patients and still obtain permanent hair removal. Like the alexandrite laser, the patient must not pluck or wax the areas to be treated for at least one month prior to laser hair removal but shaving and depilatory creams are allowed. The long-pulsed Nd-YAG is an excellent treatment option for removing unsightly spider veins on the legs caused by excessive standing, pregnancy, swelling of the legs, and aging. Typically, 4-6 treatment sessions or more are needed to obtain the desired results for hair and leg vein removal. The long-pulsed Nd-YAG laser is relatively painless and feels like a snapping sensation with each pulse of the laser. The long-pulsed Nd-YAG laser can also tighten the skin similar to radiofrequency lasers such as the Thermage and reverses the effects from sun damage.
Laser toning treatments are an extremely gentle method to refresh your skin, decrease any mottling and pigmentation, reduce any redness, reverse the effects of chronic sun exposure, tighten your skin, and to give your skin a healthy glow. Laser toning uses gentle and light settings of the long-pulsed Nd-YAG laser, the alexandrite laser, and the pulsed-dye laser either alone or in combination with each other. The downtime is minimal to nonexistent and patients can go back to work right away.
