LaserScope® Lyra Surgical Laser
in Fargo, North Dakota
When it comes to laser treatments of many different types, Nd:YAG lasers are the most versatile. They can provide effective treatment for both medical and cosmetic concerns, and Dr. Ness can create the right treatment plan for you using this versatile and state-of-the-art laser platform.
The LaserScope® Lyra Surgical Laser is a Nd:YAG system, which stands for neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet. This refers to the type of crystal that is used to produce the laser energy used during treatment. It comes with a few different settings so that it can be customized to your unique treatments and areas.
Dr. Ness and her staff are awesome! I highly recommend them!
Nd:YAG lasers work by emitting high-energy light wavelengths at the skin, which creates heat and destroys certain cells which can then be absorbed by the body as waste. Only the targeted cells are harmed, however, and this is ensured by adjusting the color and wavelength of the light so that it’s absorbed by certain pigmented cells. The handpiece also generates a cooling sensation to ensure that you remain comfortable. During a treatment session, you’ll be required to wear eye protection and sometimes a topical anesthetic, depending on your treatment.
This laser system can be beneficial to many different skin concerns as well as medical ones. Dr. Ness utilizes this platform for these treatments:
- Signs of aging
- Unwanted hair
- Visible veins in the face and legs
- Vascular lesions
Additionally, Nd:YAG lasers are often used in some practices for laser tattoo removal— they’re also often used in certain laser eye surgeries. In short, the uses for Nd:YAG systems are widely varied.
For most treatments, Dr. Ness recommends you undergo a package of treatment sessions for best results. This package will be unique to you and your cosmetic goals, so you’ll discuss it at length during your consultation. After treatment, you should be sure to keep the skin moisturized and protected against sun exposure. Dr. Ness can recommend the best products from our full line of in-house products to use during this time to keep your skin healthy.
