Nd:YAG Laser

It's easy to erase unattractive or unwanted pigmentation from the skin with today's medical laser technology. Nd:YAG laser treatments are just one of the laser skin rejuvenation options Westchester County residents choose to enhance their appearance and their self-esteem.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Rhoda Narins uses the Nd:YAG laser to effectively erase pigmented areas from the face and body, usually without scarring, including:

  • Brown spots, including sun spots, age spots, and freckles
  • Certain types of birthmarks
  • Tattoos

How It Works

The Nd:YAG laser emits short, high-intensity pulses of light at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by the pigment of the tattoo ink or darkened area. The concentrated pigment absorbs the light much more than the surrounding tissue. The light waves cause the pigment to break down, and eventually be absorbed by the body. The surrounding skin will be left virtually unaffected. You will immediately notice clearer skin, although subsequent treatment could be needed.
