Erbium: YAG Laser
Erbium: YAG Laser in Washington, DC
Used for laser tattoo removal as well as laser skin resurfacing, Erbium: YAG lasers emit extremely short pulses of infrared energy (2940nm) during treatment. Tissue studies published by our center show that these lasers remove very precise thin layers of skin or tissue with each pass (pulse). In effect this laser behaves similar to a dermabrasion device with significantly more control in the removal of skin layers. Erbium lasers are ideal for treating acne scars, mole removal, tattoo removal, and rhinophyma.
