Nd Yag Laser

Non-abrasive laser treatment to remove unwanted colored spots, reduce scars and wrinkles

ND Yag Laser at Metro Bangkok Clinic

There are two types of "peeling" lasers typically used for skin resurfacing: abrasive (fractional laser like the CO2) and non-abrasive. Non-abrasive lasers such as the Q-Switched ND YAG laser works by targeting specific pigments in the skin; it targets damaged or uneven coloured skin cells in the treatment area. When it comes to laser tattoo removal, the Q-Switched ND YAG laser targets ink pigment and breaks it up into smaller particles through powerful bursts of energy.

Procedure of the ND Yag Laser

Procedure of the ND Yag Laser

When you visit Metro Bangkok Clinic for treatment with the Q-Switched ND YAG laser, our physician will first make a detailed assessment of your skin concerns, to ensure that this laser is the best skin treatment option in your situation.

Before the treatment begins, our physicians will eventually numb the area with a topical cream or may use a local anesthetic to further reduce discomfort. You will also be provided with protective eye-wear.

Our physicians will then guide the laser across the treatment area to deliver powerful bursts of energy to break down pigmented cells.

Some discomfort is common during this stage, as the laser will cause micro-damage in the skin. However, most patients handle this procedure with ease, and our physicians always work diligently to ensure maximum comfort.

Frequency of the Q-switch laser treatment

Most of the patients will need several treatments with Q-Switched ND YAG laser to achieve optimal outcomes.

The number of treatments will depend on the specific issue you are looking to address and the size of the treatment area. For example, treatment of hyperpigmentation issues, like dark spots caused by sun damage, need few sessions.

Outcome of the laser treatment

After the procedure, you may notice redness and swelling in the treatment area. Some patients may also experience very mild bleeding at the treatment site (depending on the strength of the treatment delivered); the coming days, you may then notice some crusting at the treatment site, as the skin begins to heal. To reduce the chances of scarring, it is vital to let the scab heal on its own, without attempting to remove it. Aloe vera should be smeared on the skin after treatment, to soothe any discomfort.
