This month is the perfect time to give gifts that show you love your special Valentine by treating them (or yourself) to glowing, gorgeous skin. After the holidays and the stress, our skin may look dull and lifeless, or perhaps you’re dealing with an ongoing issue like age spots, blue veins, or broken capillaries.
Brilliant Dermatology offers trusted experience in all phases of dermatology, including an advanced YAG laser that performs multipurpose procedures for many of our skin care needs.
1064 nm ND: YAG Laser
Don’t let the strange laser name dissuade you; this laser is sought out by the highest-level dermatologist and savvy clientele alike. So, just what is the 1064 nm ND: YAG Laser? This long-pulsed laser utilizes a pure crystal that allows the YAG laser to emit a high-energy light wavelength, which creates heat that is highly-controlled. Once the crystal is emitting energy and distributing heat, it can treat various disorders on the face and body.
• Broken capillaries around nose
• Spider veins
• Cherry angiomas
The built-in cooling device allows your skin to stay cool during the treatment. You will be required to wear protective eye goggles the entire length of your procedure. A topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin to aid in your comfort. Once the handheld laser is applied to your skin’s surface, you will feel a series of light snapping sensations. The procedure can take just a few short minutes depending on the area and condition being treated. For the next several days to weeks, you will be required to diligently protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, as well as follow at home instructions directed by your dermatologist.
