Using reflectance confocal microscopy to observe in vivo melanolysis after treatment with the picosecond alexandrite laser and Q-switched Nd:YAG laser in melasma.

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 ...

Effects of picosecond laser on the multi-colored tattoo removal using Hartley guinea pig: A preliminary study.

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...

Graphene mode-locked femtosecond Alexandrite laser.

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...

Diode-pumped Q-switched Alexandrite laser in single longitudinal mode operation with Watt-level output power.

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...

Dual wavelength treatment protocol with a picosecond laser for the reduction of facial wrinkles.

The potential of a dual wavelength picosecond laser, as a new modality for treating photoaged skin, was investigated in this clinical study.

Evaluation of an Ultra-speed Picosecond Laser for Treating Tattoos

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
