Lasers, ErCr:YSGG, Dermatologic
Definition : ErCr:YSGG lasers used in the treatment of a variety of skin diseases, including scars, discoloration, and blemishes. These lasers are appropriate for dermal procedures due to the high absorption of its midinfrared (i.e., frequencies around 3 um) energy by tissue water. Some devices combine the effect of an air or water spray with the laser delivery to reduce pain and thermal effects on the skin.
