How long will the laser treatment take?
Laser treatment varies depending on the size and extent of the lesion being treated.
Is the Nd YAG laser treatment painful?
Pain during Nd YAG laser treatment is effectively minimized by the use of a topical anaesthetic. However, small age spots and rejuvenation may not require a local anesthetic. Despite the use of a topical anaesthetic, patients still may experience some discomfort similar to mild prickling of the skin.
How many treatments are needed before I see results?
As the results are progressive, multiple treatments are usually needed. Deeper pigmentation and tattoo removal usually require multiple laser treatments before significant improvement is seen where as superficial pigmentation require less treatment sessions.
What is the recovery period following a treatment?
Depending on your skin’s natural healing process and the intensity of the treatment, each patient’s recovery period varies. Generally, immediately after treatment, you will observe a certain degree of redness and swelling that may take a few days to subside. However, some patients do not experience any downtime at all.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
The potential side effects include redness, mild swelling, blistering and temporary crusting.
Can people with different skin tones/colours be treated with the Nd YAG Laser?
Yes, the Nd YAG laser works on almost all skin types including tanned or darker skin tones.
