The number of sessions required for YAG laser treatment may vary depending on the size, type, and location of the pigmented spots or vascular lesions. Your healthcare provider will recommend a treatment plan based on your specific condition.
The length of each YAG laser treatment session can vary, depending on the size and number of pigmented spots or vascular lesions being treated. Typically, each session lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
The results of YAG laser treatment may be visible immediately after the procedure, but it may take several weeks for the full effects to become apparent as the body naturally eliminates the treated pigmented spots or vascular lesions.
Your healthcare provider may recommend avoiding sun exposure, using sunscreen, and avoiding certain skincare products for a period of time after YAG laser treatment to help prevent further damage to the treated area and promote healing.
Some potential side effects of YAG laser treatment may include redness, swelling, blistering, crusting, or temporary changes in skin color or texture, but these are generally mild and temporary, and your healthcare provider will provide instructions on how to manage them during and after the treatment sessions.
