Lightsheer Diode Laser
Coherence: Ipl stands for intense pulse light- uses light of a specific wavelength but it is not a laser because the light beams do not converge and the wave length is not as narrowly focused. A diode laser is comprised of semiconductors where an active medium is formed by p-n junction emitting a monochromatic and coherent beam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hair removal: Lasers, in general, can remove hair from a variety of body areas. If done by a qualified professional, this includes the face. The "best" laser for any particular application depends on the type of skin, the type of hair, and the provider's skill with the laser in question. ...Read more
Conventional diode laser vs pascal for retina. Any difference in therapeutic efficacy? Like pascal leads to less burns from laser?
Depends laser MD: The pascal theoretically causes less damage with computer generated patterns. Energy is more precise, delivered in a more preset pattern. Ower and time settings (equal to total energy delivered) tend to be less. Its wavelength 577 is absorbed by blood and the rpe. Diode is a higher wavelength and is absorbed by the rpe and choroid-the burns tend to be wider. In micropulse mode they're equal. ...Read more
Hi i would like to know the diff between yag&alexandrite tech and diode laser?Which is the best method for hair removal?Are yag&alex latest tech?Thx
Hi, which type of hair removal is best (diode laser, ipl or alendarite gentlelase apoogie) my type of skin is within the range of the three types?
Got diode laser done for facial hair removal 2 sessions are over post laser I feel pigmentation on my cheeks has increased is it due to laser or other?
Maybe Laser: Laser treatments can cause an increase in pigmentation, especially in patients with darker skin tones to start and in patients with sun exposure before or after the treatment. It is important to let your doctor know about recent sun exposure and to follow any instructions about sunscreen use and sun avoidance after the procedure. Talk with your MD about possible causes and treatments. ...Read more
