Commonly used for anti-aging treatments (think spider veins, sun spots, wrinkles), the Yag laser penetrates the skin so the tissue can absorb the energy, without removing the top layer of skin.

I had Erbium laser 2yrs ago when i was 53. After the surgery I was left with more scars only worse, a dent in my cheek, very noticable & a huge patch scar around my old scars. Not to mention all the redness for months after. Pro none Cons scars, dents, redness, pigment... READ MORE

I asked for fraxel laser, meaning less sagging and wrinkles and smaller pores. They did not have it, but they had other things. The doctor said I would need 3 to 5 of this yag treatments and it would have a smaller effect, mainly on pores. It sounded like a small treatment. Nothing invasive. She... READ MORE

I bought 3 procedures with a groupon. Was told that normally 3 treatments should be good but that it might take up to 6 treatments to get great results. Very painful treatments even after applying skin numbing cream. After my 3rd treatment I was asked if I wanted to purchase additional at the... READ MORE

My plastic surgeon recommended a Dermatologist because he no longer had access to a Yag Laser. I had a consult to discuss brown spots on my body and made my appointment. The Dermatologist went from head to toe with the Yag Laser. Leaving the office, my body was on fire, but calmed down less... READ MORE

1064 Yag laser used-I have had a hormonally tumultuous year and my skin has suffered like never before. I have never had acne issues until almost literally when I turned 30:( I have tried everything and the only thing that gets rid of my existing acne is Clearasil spot treatment (10% benzoyl...

I impulsively purchased a Groupon because the discount was so huge and I love a good discounted facial. I didn't know anything about laser facials and didn't have time to do much research before the appointment. I was surprised to find myself in a rather clinical looking room as opposed to a...

Four procedures were done so far. One more left. It was very painful and I don't see the improvement. I am trying to be positive and not to think that it was a waste of time and money. I hope that it will be some noticeable improvement later or at least the aging process will slow down. Anyway,... READ MORE

I've recently finished a package of 6 sessions of Gentle Yag laser. I really don't know why this procedure has such a low 'worth-it' rating, because it's one of the most popular procedures at the clinic I frequent, which is one of the top dermatological clinics in Singapore. It's called the... READ MORE

I was looking for an alternative to invasive, surgical options. A friend told me they had the Yag Skin tightening and loved it. I purchased a series of 3. Was told best results take about 6-8 weeks after each treatment. It was not too painful. I love the results. Will spoil myself once a... READ MORE

I had the "painting" (less invasive/less painful) method of the Yag Gentle Laser done on my face and neck in June and August of 2012. I can honestly say at this point, (November 2012), that I have not noticed any changes. I don't even know what I'm supposed to be looking for. I was hoping for... READ MORE

I had a Erbium laser in my acne scars 5 days ago and the results are so amazing! I had tried for years a lot of peelings ( it worked a little bit) but nothing like this laser, I feel my scars softer ( they almost desapear) and my skin so clear !!!! I need to have maybe 2 times again to see... READ MORE

I have been having the skin tightening with the Gentle Yag for 3 or 4 sessions. My latest treatment was last Thursday and as the technician was doing my upper lip, she told me to be sure to keep my tongue between my lip and teeth because she "didn't want to hit my teeth with the laser." It never... READ MORE

I have very Irish skin and over the years (as many others ) have damaged their skin from too much sun. I consulted a doctor recently with the different types of laser options that could remove the sun damage, age spots and feckles. He suggested the Yag Laser. I had the yag laser resurfacing on...

Area and price was changed at time of treatment. I had to refer back to the all papers and waivers pertaining to area and cost. A struggle...and I should have walked away!! I have darker and spots 4 - 5 times larger than I was trying to correct. It has been over 4 wks. since my treatment...... READ MORE

Had facial hair that I used to bleach. Laser hair removal was a waste of money. Went it here for fine but dark facial hair removal, walked away with a full-grown beard. YAG 1064 laser was used, however it had an adverse affect that wasn't conveyed during the consultation. I think she... READ MORE

I have had a blue reticular vein on my lower eyelid that began to show more over the past few months. It looked like I was fatigued all the time and was very difficult to cover with makeup. I found a vein doctor who had success treating veins like these with a Cutera 1064 YAG which uses the... READ MORE

After experiencing poor results from 4 Fraxel restore sessions I decided to try the Yag laser to help with acne scars and crow's feet. It was a complete waste of time and money. Like the Fraxel restore laser, the Yag brightened my complexion and removed sun damage but that was it. No... READ MORE

I had this treatment two years ago due to concerns about sun damage and skin cancer. The morning after the treatment, it felt as though my eyelids were stuck to my eyes. The PS ignored my concerns (shared the following days) and did nothing. When the symptoms persisted, I went to numerous... READ MORE

First it was excruciating. It smelled like burned chicken when they were doing it. After I looked like burn victim with swollen, and bloody oozing. Did the Aquafor, they tell you to put gel icepacks on but it KILLS to touch your face even with water. I looked like a freak for at least a... READ MORE

I had a history of acne. As a result my face (cheek area) manifest the aftermath of this condition. During the years I've tried just about everything to remove the acne scars, but to no avail. I went through this procedure to remove acne scars on my right cheek.I have a black complexion. On... READ MORE
