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

I bought a 'package' of treatments that consisted of Yag and Ktp lasers. It worked on a spider vein I have but the spider vein is coming back. I also had my chest and face treated for sun damage. I noticed nothing different and I think it may have made my melasma worse. I am very disappointed... READ MORE

I was told that the YAG Laser treatment would help to keep my youthful appearance, and that there were no chance for being left with demarkation on or dark spots on my face. The procedure itself was over in less than 10 minutes, and the numbing cream I was given to put on worked becasue I... READ MORE

I actually had a combo Yag/Erbium laser resurface. It was quite painful. I felt as if I were on fire for nearly an hour. I also experienced hyperpigmentation on my chin and between my eyes. To be honest, I regretted every single second of this procedure.However, I am now nearly 4 months out... READ MORE
