No Idea if my Damage is Laser Related.. Please Help - Albany, NY

I had yag laser done On January 30,2014. The session was literally 5 minutes long ( just for a few broken blood vessels on and around nose).

Pleasantly Surprised - Atlanta, GA

I impulsively purchased a Groupon because the discount was so huge and I love a good discounted facial.

Yag Laser Skin Tightening -Fairfax, VA

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.

A Few Sessions is Needed for Best Results - Singapore

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

Can't See the Results - Englewood, CO

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.

Status of cracked tooth post Gentle Yag skin tightening

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
