What is Nd:YAG Laser Skin Rejuvenation Used For?
Nd:YAG is an acronym that stands for Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet, which is a lot to try to say. Nd:YAG is a laser that emits a beam of highly concentrated light onto the surface of the skin where it is absorbed to provide several benefits. The energy that is emitted by the laser is able to remove pigmentation from the skin and unwanted hair, as well as stimulating the production of collagen. Increased collagen production leads to rejuvenation of the skin, which is the most common use for Nd:YAG treatments. As we age, collagen production naturally slows down, which leads to some of the signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin and a dull complexion. By increasing collagen production to similar levels experienced prior to turning 30, patients will notice their skin appear healthier and firmer without the need for invasive surgery. Facial wrinkles and fine lines will also decrease in appearance, and Nd:YAG can even out skin tone by using the light pulses to target the skin’s melanin thus helping to minimize the appearance of age and brown spots. The appearance of spider veins can also be reduced on the legs when treated using Nd:YAG lasers.
How is Nd:YAG Laser Skin Rejuvenation Performed?
Nd:YAG laser skin rejuvenation treatment is performed by a skilled and certified provider on patients who have been deemed to be good candidates for the treatment. The laser is applied to the area being treated, where the laser energy penetrates through the layers of skin and tissue. This allows for the treatment to work its magic deep below the skin where the collagen production happens. The laser itself doesn’t break the surface of the skin, so the risk of negative side effects from the treatment are minimal. The area being treated is treated with a topical numbing agent prior to the procedure starting and patients will also be given special goggles to wear during their procedure in order to protect their eyes. The laser is then passed over the skin, in conjunction with a cooling device used to protect the skin and minimize any discomfort. Each treatment session will be unique to the individual it is being performed on, with the duration determined by the surface area being treated and how complex the treatment is. Your practitioner will be able to walk you through your individual procedure steps prior to starting treatment so you can know what to expect and how long you should anticipate the procedure taking. At Beleza Beauty House, we want to ensure our patients are thoroughly informed of any treatments they are undergoing and we answer any questions or concerns prior to starting the process.

How do I Prepare for a Nd:YAG Laser Skin Rejuvenation Procedure?
During your consultation appointment at Beleza Beauty House, your practitioner will examine your skin and discuss your current health and medical history with you to ensure that you are a good candidate for Nd:YAG treatment. This will also help determine if there are any risks you need to be aware of prior to starting the procedure. If there is anything specific you need to know to help you prepare for your appointment, this will be discussed as well. Everyone’s situation is going to be unique, so preparation steps can vary from one person to the next. You may need to avoid certain medications or supplements prior to your treatment, as well as avoiding shaving or any other type of hair removal, or exposure to the sun or tanning beds.
