Nd Yag

Skin Treatment

Nd Yag

The Cutera Laser treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely and effectively. With the most advanced technology, this laser delivers pulses of light energy to destroy blood vessels and redirect the blood flow to veins deeper below the skin’s surface.

This treatment can be performed on the face and body, and is suitable for patients with dark, light or tanned skins. The number of treatments can vary and depends on the number, colour and size of the vessels being treated.

Pre-Treatment

During the consultation your clinician will recommend and discuss which products you may need to use prior to your procedure. This is to ensure that the skin is well prepped to reduce risks of adverse reactions and to ensure optimal results from your treatment. Products will generally need to be used in the 2 weeks leading up to the procedure. This time frame may vary from patient to patient.

What to Expect from Nd Yag Laser

Upon arrival you will be asked to fill out a consultation form which will include questions about your skin type, medical conditions, previous treatments, etc. You will then have a private discussion with an experienced clinician who will assess your individual requirements, suggest a tailored plan and take you through the details of the treatment including pre-care and aftercare. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered. Most patients are able to tolerate the treatment without much discomfort.
