YAG laser treatment is commonly used to remove tattoos, but it can also be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and hair removal.
YAG laser treatment may cause some discomfort, but most patients describe it as tolerable. Your healthcare provider can provide you with a numbing cream or cold air to help minimize any discomfort.
The number of treatments needed will depend on the size, color, and depth of the tattoo, as well as the patient's skin type and the type of laser used. Multiple treatments are typically required to fully remove a tattoo.
