Quasi switched NeoDynium Yettrium Aluminium Garnet laser is used mainly for pigmented lesions like freckles, blemishes, tattoo.
A strong beam of light is passed through ND: YAG crystal, this crystal emits a light of particular wavelength (1064 nm), which is manipulated by a filter lens to either 1064 nm or 532 nm. Lights with these wavelengths are particularly absorbed by pigment in skin. Because the light is very intense, it is converted to acoustic waves in skin & this breaks the pigment to smaller fragments that are absorbed by skin macrophages.
