Nd YAG is the acronym for neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet or neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet.
The Nd YAG laser is used in aesthetic medicine for laser depilation, tattoo removal, skin remodelling but especially for vascular lesions such as varicosities of the lower limbs and facial telangiectasias.
For example, in the vascular field, the laser shot will be captured by a target in the blood vessel (called a chromophore): oxyhemoglobin. At this level, this absorption will produce heat which will allow the vessel to be closed by coagulation, and thus make the unsightly lesion disappear.
The Nd YAG laser is a versatile laser allowing several treatments in medical aesthetics.
HOW DOES AN ND YAG LASER SESSION WORK?
After checking that there are no contraindications, the patient settles comfortably and wears eye protection.
The doctor cleans the skin of the treated area, and sets the laser according to the clinical indication. The act begins, the patient may feel a small tingling sensation similar to a small elastic band.
For greater safety, a cold introduced by the Zimmer tool cools the skin and limits the thermal effect, while creating a slight local anaesthetic.
This procedure takes between 10 and 30 minutes.
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE INTERVENTION?
At the end of the session, a redness is present but dissipates very quickly. In some cases, some small scabs appear after a few days, which are easily camouflaged. It is preferable to avoid the sun 15 days before and 15 days after the treatment.
ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS?
- Skin lesions or skin infections
