Default Re:Lasting Laser Therapy of Port Wine Stains

Hey Purplecolor, it is Hank again.

I just got an email from a friend that was doing some research and you where right it is a Yag laser. It is an ND: Yag laser. So what does Yag mean anyways?
It still did not hurt near as bad as the arcgone laser that I had when I first started. I do not know if it hurts more then the dye lasers because I got a local when I had the laser done. My friend told me that is new yag laser is still considered a experimental in the treatment of hemangiomas. It also has a chance of scaring, but with the H's that I have I would perfer the scaring then the H. So know that we know it is a Yag laser what can you tell me about them.

Talk to you soon.

Hank B
