What Is The Nd: YAG Vascular Laser?

The Nd: YAG Vascular Laser can improve the appearance of anything “red” on the face and body. The treatment feels like a hot tingling sensation, and this feeling goes away as soon as the treatment is over. Your esthetician will then cool and protect your skin. Treatments take between 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area treated. The Nd: YAG laser can treat:

  • Cherry angiomas
  • Tiny red dots
  • Leg veins less than two millimeters in size
  • Background redness from rosacea
  • Redness around scars and stretch marks
  • Distended capillaries on the cheeks or around the nose

Benefits of the Nd: YAG Vascular Laser

  • Lasers are the only effective treatment for vascular issues
  • Little to no downtime depending on area treated

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Nd: YAG Vascular Laser?

  • Treatment is effective for all skin tones

What Should I Do Before an Nd: YAG treatment?

What Should I Expect After an Nd: YAG Treatment?

The appearance of the area treated depends on the type of vascular issue. Cherry angiomas will turn gray, and will take 7 to 10 to fade away. Distended capillaries may be gone immediately upon treatment, or may turn a dark purple black and fade in 7 to 10 days. Background redness will appear darker at first and then fade. Possible post-treatment effects include scabbing or bruising as well as swelling. Your esthetician will give you realistic expectations for your individual situation concerning the number of treatments you may need.
