Melasma is an acquired type of hyperpigmentation that is characterized by the appearance of scattered light- to dark-brown macules and patches on the face. Recently, several lasers have been proposed ...
Picosecond lasers have emerged as the leading technology for tattoo removal due to their shorter pulse lengths. To clarify the features of picosecond lasers, we compared picosecond and nanosecond lase...
We report for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, graphene mode-locked operation of a femtosecond Alexandrite laser at 750 nm. A multipass-cavity configuration was employed to scale the out...
We present significantly improved performance data of a diode-pumped -switched Alexandrite laser in single longitudinal mode operation developed as a beam source for resonance lidar systems. The avera...
The potential of a dual wavelength picosecond laser, as a new modality for treating photoaged skin, was investigated in this clinical study.
Patients with bilateral hidradenitis in the axilla, groin and/or inframammary will be treated on one side with the Alexandrite hair removal laser. The other side will serve as the control.
Port wine stain (PWS) is a congenital, progressive vascular malformation of skin involving post-capillary venules that occurs in an estimated 4 children per 1,000 live births. Approximatel...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Cutera excel HR dual wavelength 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG laser for hair removal.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of picosecond 532 and 1,064 nanometers laser in the treatment of benign pigmented lesions compared with q-switched 532 an...
The investigators developed an ultra-speed picosecond laser (20ps) with a 20gHz repetition rate that provide very promising results in vitro and in ex vivo skin to remove skin tattoos. Th...
Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Genes that cause the epigenotype (i.e., the interrelated developmental pathways through which the adult organism is realized) to switch to an alternate cell lineage-related pathway. Switch complexes control the expression of normal functional development as well as oncogenic transformation.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
