Long Pulse

At deRMA Skin Institute, our professionals work directly with patients to help them address a wide range of skin concerns, including those considered part of medical and cosmetic dermatology. Our doctors understand that many conditions can cause patients embarrassment, whether it be excess unwanted hair, severe active acne and acne scarring, or pigmentation concerns that can be extremely noticeable and that patients are unable to conceal with cosmetics. Patients in and around Guelph and Burlington, Ontario, can speak to the doctors at deRMA Skin Institute about using Long Pulsed laser treatments utilizing the Nd:YAG laser device.

What is the Long Pulse Nd:YAG laser?

Using the Long Pulse Nd:YAG laser as part of a collection of laser and light devices used at our practice, our team can address a myriad of concerns that can develop on the skin on the face and body. It can deliver specific amounts of energy into various depths of the dermis, and is absorbed by three primary chromophores in the skin: hemoglobin, water, and melanin. This makes it appropriate for a wide range of use within the field of dermatology, treating everything from scarring to spider veins.

Can the Long Pulse Nd:YAG laser help with skin rejuvenation treatment?

Absolutely! This specialized device can help treat many skin conditions while improving the skin’s overall texture and tone. It can also be used for laser-assisted hair removal, the reduction of oil glands and bacteria for acne treatment, and even works on redness of the skin associated with rosacea. Because of its versatility, it may be recommended for you if you seek laser skin rejuvenation services at deRMA Skin Institute!
