Doctor Answers (1)
NdYag Treatments Should Be Performed by an MD or by a Technician Supervised by an MD
In our office all treatments with our NdYag (Candela GentleYag) are performed by me with my medical assistant or by medical assistant under my supervision. All lasers can cause permanent, disfiguring side effects if not used by someone with the appropriate training and understanding of the laser technology and the anatomy and biology of the skin, hair and nails. It is inappropriate to discuss settings without seeing the skin type and skin condition being treated.
