The carbon facial treatment was originally developed in South Korea in the early 2000s. It is now becoming more popular across Europe and America, and various other countries. More recently, this process has been applied to the backs of hands, and other areas of the skin, such as the décolletage. It is claimed that this… Continue reading Carbon Facial treatment with the QS Nd:YAG laser

I presented a video to the British Medical Laser Association conference in May 2021, discussing my work on the physical processes which may be occurring during laser tattoo removal. In it, I discuss the formation of steam bubbles, how they evolve over time, the latent heat energy of vaporisation and condensation, and the cyclic bubble… Continue reading The physical processes behind laser tattoo removal – what is really going on?
I’ve just made a couple of little animations looking at the differences between the laser wavelengths we use for tattoo removal and how anisotropy comes into play. You might be surprised at what actually happens in the skin. Anisotropy is rarely discussed in the laser tattoo world, yet it has significant effects on treatment outcomes.… Continue reading Laser Tattoo Removal – wavelengths and anisotropy

Tattoo inks can be composed of various materials and colours. What we perceive as a single colour may easily be a combination of two, or more, colours! This has significant effects when treating them with lasers… Watch this video for an explanation. The reality is that it is not obvious what we are treating!! Hope… Continue reading What colour is that tattoo?
I collected all my scribblings in various journals, magazines, comics etc and put them together in pdf files. Firstly, here are my peer-reviewed papers… and my magazine articles… Enjoy, Mike.
The New York Times published an excellent article showing the fluid dynamics of contaminated air in a school roon, under various conditions of ventilation and flitration. The simulation reveals how the concentration of viral particles changes in a room of students, when one is infected with a virus. The same results would apply to a… Continue reading How do viruses, and laser plume, spread in the air…?
I co-wrote an article with my colleague, Godfrey Town, on the importance of plume control and the associated risk of not addressing it: Click on the above image to access it. Ciao for now, Mike.
