ND:YAG Laser Treatment

[liv] Plastic Surgery specializes in ND:YAG laser hair removal. This is a specific type of laser that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin in order to stimulate collagen growth and rid of redness. Additionally, YAG laser hair removal improves skin elasticity, decreases pore size and can be used as a treatment for wrinkles.

How the Procedure Is Performed

This type of laser hair removal uses a long wavelength that penetrates deeply for skin improvement. The device used for the hair removal emits pulses of light into the hair follicles. That light is then absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted into heat, which then loosens the hair and makes it so the cells cannot grow new hair.

It is typical to need 6 treatments in order to capture hair growth in its full cycle.
