Nd:YAG picosecond laser

The PICOCARE from Wontech is a picosecond Nd:YAG laser featuring two wavelengths—532nm and 1064nm—for tattoo removal and the treatment of melasma and pigmented lesions. The shorter pulse duration minimizes damage to surrounding tissues while breaking ink particles into smaller pieces for more effective removal. The compact device offers real-time energy feedback, energy output of 600mJ, and 450ps and 750ps pulse durations. Contact: christopher@wtlaser, www.wtlaser.com.

Skin Histology Offers Insight into Picosecond Alexandrite Laser Mechanism of Action

Emil A. Tanghetti MD, expanded on his 2014 in vivo and ex vivo pilot study of the picosecond alexandrite laser to investigate how different energy settings affect the skin. He used a confocal microscope followed by biopsies to describe changes seen in the skin following in vivo treatment with a 755nm picosecond alexandrite laser with a fractional optic handpiece. Treatment was delivered at three different energy settings.
