Alexandrite Laser

Medium Depth Pigment Laser

This laser, alexandrite laser, is based on 755 nm wavelength which primarily targets blood, melanin, and dark tattoos.

Laser is a focused beam of intense, “single-colored” light and heat energy with a specific wavelength but variable intensity and pulse duration designed to selectively interact with specific tissues of the skin.

The effect of laser depends on wavelength, degree of cooling, intensity of energy or fluence, pulse duration ranging from picoseconds to milliseconds, the intended targets, and skin type of the individuals.  The effect of laser on tissues is specific and is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis.

Most lasers thus targets primarily very specific components of the skin.  As such, combination treatments with other modalities and lasers generally produce broader and more effective outcome.
