Update on vascular lasers: a new look at wavelength and pulse duration
Vascular lasers and light sources have been used in aesthetic medicine for over 30 years. Early vascular lasers were limited to only 1 emitted wavelength; a fixed pulse duration, and a fixed spot sized delivery system.
The pulsed dye laser was followed by early KTP and Nd;YAG lasers and a variety of intense pulsed light systems. This talk will focus on newer technology which allows use of more than 1 laser wavelength from the same energy based device, a wide variety of pulse duration and handpiece spot sizes as well as ability to raise and lower cooling temperatures of the laser handpiece.
Because of current vascular laser’s availability of all the above factors, more vascular lesions can be treated with greater success, less pain and increased safety than ever before.
Vascular lasers continue to evolve leading to greater success and decreased complications in the treatment of vascular lesions.
