Treatment of acne scarring with a novel fractionated, dual‐wavelength, picosecond‐domain laser incorporating a novel holographic beam‐splitter

Laser‐induced optical breakdown (LIOB) of tissue has been used in ophthalmology since the early 1980s, where the lack of light absorption by many structures of the eye requires optical breakdown to elicit a laser treatment effect, as opposed to thermal breakdown by selective absorption of energy by chromophores within tissue.

Syneron Candela’s PicoWay picosecond laser now with three wavelengths and resolve fractional

PicoWay® picosecond laser received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for a new ultra-short 785 nm wavelength, making it the third FDA cleared wavelength for PicoWay. The new ultra-short 785nm wavelength is the first of its kind in the aesthetic market, utilizing a titanium sapphire laser for the removal of blue and green inks. […]

Laser Tattoo Removal: A Clinical Update

Techniques for tattoo removal have evolved significantly over the years. The commonly used Quality-switched (QS) ruby, alexandrite, and Nd:YAG lasers are the traditional workhorses for tattoo removal. Newer strategies using combination laser treatments, multi-pass treatments, and picosecond lasers offer promising results.
