Lasers work by emitting a wavelength of high energy light, which, when focused on a certain skin condition, will create heat and destroy diseased cells, pigmentations and close small vessels in the skin.
Fractional photothermolysis technology is an exciting new technology to treat ageing changes of skin, dyspigmentation, acne scars and striae. Fractional resurfacing thermally ablates microscopic columns of skin tissue in regularly spaced arrays over a fraction of the skin surface.
Both fractional ablative and non-ablative lasers can be used for the treatment of mild-to-moderate lines and wrinkles.
Nd:YAG is the most effective Laser for Tattoo removal
Blue, grey and black tattoos can be removed with a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm wavelength). The color of the tattoo and the depth of the pigment influence the duration and the outcome of the laser treatment. Laser treatment involves the selective destruction of ink molecules that are then absorbed by macrophages and thus eliminated.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
IPL Intense pulsed light
are sometimes incorrectly referred to as "laser hair removal". IPL-based methods, sometimes called "phototricholysis", or "photoepilation", use xenon flash lamps that emit full spectrum light.
IPLs offer some advantages over laser, principally in the pulse duration. While lasers may output trains of short pulses to simulate a longer pulse, IPL systems can generate pulse widths up to 250ms which is useful for larger diameter targets. Some current IPL systems have proven to be more successful in the removal of hair and blood vessels than many lasers.
