Most laser systems have a lens to focus the laser energy down to a sale spot diameter (see figure 1 below). However, in many systems, the focal point (where the spot diameter is the smallest) is outside the handpiece assembly. This has a potentially hazardous effect if not properly understood! The problem with this design… Continue reading Laser spot size – how it changes with distance from the target…
I recently published an article in the Aesthetics magazine (Volume 7, Issue 3, Feb 2020) showing my results with a new masking technique in the treatment of angiomas and benign pigmented lesions – click here for my article. In it I show how higher fluences and longer pulsewidths may be used to treat small… Continue reading New IPL Masking Technique

It’s the ‘latest’ thing out there but is it as easy as it sounds….? Here’s an article I wrote on this topic a couple of years ago. PDF version Mike. firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you ever wondered how many photons you generate each time you fire a pulse of laser energy? I have! Fortunately, I can work it out because I’m a physicist. It’s the kind of thing us physicists do!! It keeps us off the streets at night…… So, to calculate this number we need to… Continue reading How many photons are in a laser pulse?
