ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR YAG LASER TREATMENT?
The Yag Laser may be used for non-ablative facial wrinkle reduction; however, the device is most typically used to for safe, effective laser vein treatment on the legs.
Yag Laser treatment can be used to treat the following conditions:
- Mild to moderate facial wrinkles
- Spider veins
- Hemangioma (vascular birthmark)
- Telangiectasias (dilated superficial blood vessels)
HOW YAG LASER TREATMENT WORKS
The Lumenis Yag Laser emits a long wave of infrared light of 1064nm to penetrate deeply into the lower layer of the skin’s dermis. Not only does this allow for wrinkle reduction and treatment of vascular conditions, it also triggers new collagen formation by producing controlled heat damage in the dermis.
SPIDER VEIN TREATMENT
When an Nd:Yag Laser is used to treat spider veins, it penetrates the skin and the superficial blood vessel, or spider vein. The heat generated by the Yag Laser coagulates the blood inside the spider vein causing it to collapse and seal. The collapsed spider vein will disappear over the next few weeks, and the body will naturally and safely dispose of the coagulated blood inside.
The Yag Laser delivers the precise dosage of energy to problematic spider veins without injuring any nearby structures, such as healthy blood vessels or skin tissues.
The entire laser vein removal procedure is typically no more than 20-30 minutes, and no anesthesia is necessary. Spider vein treatment requires two to six treatments every four to six weeks until all unsightly leg veins are no longer visible.
