I was calling around to different dr s who use smoothbeam and one place that carried the smoothbeam said that often times their dr. uses the ND YAG with better results than SB.

I too would be interested in any info about this laser. Is that the type of laser or its comercial name?

thanks

I remember Dr Chu said to me that the Yag laser was good for red marks - but I didn't look any further into it.

I have a bunch of red marks resulting from a TCA CROSS I did almost a month ago. Is there any laser that will help fade these faster? They still look very red and brown. My scars are slowly filling in, but the marks really make my skin look bad. Even Coverblend will not hide these marks.

My dermatologist has a IV Medlite Yag Laser, which I think helps with pigment problems. Has anybody had success with this?

Would this be good for me because I have asian skin and cannot use IPL due to hyperpigmentation risks.

I found a site with some information on this laser. www.cosmeticsurgery-news.com. You have to click on the first article at the bottom of the initial page. It states this laser stimulates collagen production to rasie indented scars. Common sense makes me think it might work better after subscision or needleing to release the tethered tissue. Please keep us posted if you get the treatment. Good Luck! biggrin.gif
