How does the Nd-Yag laser work?

The Q-switched laser produces short pulses that shatters the targeted pigment (tattoo or melanin) in the skin without harming the surrounding tissue, reducing discomfort, side effects and downtime. The smaller pigment particles are then removed via the body's immune system. While a series of treatments are needed to achieve a desired outcome, the results are long-lasting.

How long is the recovery time after treatment?

Recovery after Nd-Yag laser treatment is usually minimal. Depending on the pigment targeted, you may experience mild swelling or redness in the treatment area. However you will still be able to return to normal duties provided you have adequate sun protection.
