Nd:YAG Laser Treatment
Our practice offers the Candela Nordlys Nd:YAG Laser, one of the most advanced and comfortable Nd:YAG treatments available.
What is an Nd:YAG Laser?
An Nd:YAG laser is a solid-state laser capable of producing a near-infrared wavelength that penetrates deep into the skin and is readily absorbed by hemoglobin and melanin chromophores. The lasing medium of Nd:YAG (Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) is a man-made crystal (solid-state) that is pumped by a high-intensity lamp. By creating a variable long pulse duration and an appropriate spot size, it is possible to significantly heat deep skin tissues, such as large blood vessels and vascular lesions.
How does a Long Pulsed Nd:YAG laser work?
Nd:YAG laser energy is selectively absorbed by the deeper levels of the dermis and allows for the treatment of deeper vascular lesions such as telangiectasias, hemangiomas, and leg veins. The laser energy is delivered using long pulses which are converted into heat in the tissue. The heat removes the vascular structures.
What can be treated with Nd:YAG Laser?
The Candela Nordlys Nd:YAG offers treatment for larger and deeper vascular lesions and some pigmented lesions.
