ND-YAG Laser

The ND-YAG laser is well admired for its multiple uses and treatment functions with laser skin procedures.

ND-YAG Laser treatments are used throughout the medical community for everything ranging from Laser tattoo removal to age spots to skin rejuvenation. Many eye doctors even use this type of laser for repairing a wide variety of eye conditions like cataracts or glaucoma. At Dr. Torgerson’s Toronto Laser Clinic, the ND-YAG laser is used to effectively treat skin conditions such as minor wrinkles, birthmarks, tattoos, and age spots. Dr. Torgerson has effectively used the YAG to help hundreds of patients restore the youthful quality of their skin.

How Does the ND-YAG Laser Work?

This type of laser utilizes a highly concentrated beam of light released in short bursts on the target areas. The skin then absorbs the light in the form of heat energy, causing minor scarring and tears of the skin and encouraging the growth of new skin via the body’s natural healing process. The YAG laser is very precise and will not damage the surrounding areas. The laser effectively removes the outer layers of skin, causing the body to regenerate new skin over top.

Will ND-YAG Laser Treatments Improve My Appearance?

Yes, if you have any spots, pigmentation, or small wrinkles you are unhappy with, laser treatments will definitely help improve your appearance. By removing these spots, your face will have a more even skin tone, giving you a more youthful appearance. Most patients of Dr. Torgerson are very pleased with the results of the procedure and find that their new, fresh skin gives them more confidence and a nice healthy glow. This laser also can be used to effectively treat unwanted tattoos by effectively breaking them up over several sessions until the tattoo disappears.

What To Expect During The Procedure?

Dr. Torgerson will apply a local anesthetic to the area where the laser will be administered. Most patients report only minor discomfort throughout their laser treatment. The YAG laser will then be carefully directed over your skin, sending out small, quick pulses of energy. Depending on the size of the area being targeted, it may take several short passes to achieve the desired results.

What to Expect After the Procedure

After your procedure, Dr. Torgerson will apply a small amount of ointment to the treated area. Healing time will vary, depending on the size and thickness of the area treated. However, in general, the skin should be fully recovered within a few days. During this time, patients may experience minor irritation and swelling. This is normal and is part of the body’s natural healing process. Dr. Torgerson will provide clients with information sheets outlining what to expect afterwards and how to care for your treated skin as it heals.
