The ND:YAG laser is capable of treating large blood vessels and vascular lesions.
The Nd:YAG laser (Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) features a man made crystal, amplified by a high intensity lamp and resonator. The laser is capable of producing a near-infrared wavelength which penetrates deep into the dermis and is absorbed by the hemoglobin and melanin chromophores. These take on a ‘red’ or ‘brown’ appearance.
The laser energy is converted into heat within the dermis tissue. Once targeted, these chromophores will heat, impacting the vasculature of the lesions.
Come and speak to one of our trained Cosmetic Nurses at the Vein and Skin Clinic to see whether we have the laser to help with your facial veins and/or red spots.
