YAG laser is a type of laser technology used in various medical and cosmetic procedures for skin treatment as sun damage, inflammation, hormonal changes, acne, and reactions to some medications that often make the skin uneven, congested, and pigmented.
YAG lasers emit light with a wavelength of 1064 nanometers which is in the near-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum.
This specific wavelength makes YAG lasers suitable for various dermatological applications.
Our equipment comes with 2 more wavelengths: 1320 nm and 532nm
Here are some common uses of YAG lasers for skin treatments:
Can you remove tattoos with the Yag Laser?
Yes, it is possible to remove tattoos using a laser:
YAG Laser is one of the most effective laser types for tattoo elimination, especially dark ink tattoos.
Here are some reasons why this laser is effective in the elimination of tattoos:
Adequate wavelength: The laser emits light pulses to a specific wavelength (usually in the range of 1064 nanometers), which is effective in fragmenting ink particles in the tattoo without significantly damaging the surrounding tissue.
This technology allows the laser to emit high-energy pulses in a short period of time, resulting in greater power to fragment the tattoo ink.
Selectivity: The laser: YAG is selective and is specifically directed to ink particles, without greatly affecting the surrounding skin.
However, it is important to keep in mind that the elimination of laser tattoos generally requires multiple sessions to achieve satisfactory results. The necessary number of sessions depends on several factors, such as the size and color of the tattoo, the depth of the tattoo in the skin, the age of the tattoo, and the type of skin of the patient.
YAG lasers are utilized to remove or lighten tattoos by breaking down the ink particles in the skin. The laser energy shatters the tattoo pigment, gradually allowing the body's immune system to eliminate the fragments.
Hollywood Carbon Peel:
What is Hollywood Carbon Peel?
Hollywood Carbon Peel, is also known as the ‘China Doll Peel’ because it delivers a porcelain doll-like finish to the skin.
Is a cosmetic laser treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face. It is a non-invasive and relatively gentle procedure that can address various skin concerns and is popular among individuals seeking smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Here's how the Hollywood Carbon Peel typically works:
Carbon Application: A thin layer of medical-grade carbon lotion or a carbon-based solution is applied to the face. This carbon substance is usually left on for about 10-15 minutes to penetrate the pores and adhere to the skin's surface.
Laser Treatment: YAG laser, is used to target the carbon particles on the skin.
The laser energy is absorbed by the carbon, causing it to heat up and break down. This process generates controlled thermal energy within the skin's layers, stimulating collagen production and helping to reduce the appearance of imperfections.
Pore Cleansing: As the laser energy interacts with the carbon, it also helps to gently exfoliate the topmost layer of the skin, unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells, oil, and debris. This can lead to a more even skin tone and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
The Hollywood Carbon Peel is often praised for its "no downtime" aspect, meaning that patients can generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it's essential to follow post-treatment skincare recommendations provided by the clinician to maintain and optimize the results.
The heat from the laser promotes collagen production, which can lead to a tightening and smoothing effect on the skin. It can also improve skin texture, reduce pigmentation irregularities, and minimize the size of pores.
The treatment is popular for its ability to address a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.
It is commonly used by individuals looking for a quick, non-surgical solution to refresh their skin's appearance. The number of sessions required and the results achieved can vary depending on an individual's specific skin issues and goals, so it's best to consult with a dermatologist or licensed practitioner to determine if this treatment is right for you.
For all these reasons
It has become one of the most sought-after lasers in the world of skincare.
