Article This article discusses our take on TRTs in a (relatively) non-mathematical way. It discusses tissue denaturation using the Arrhenius Damage Equation which describes the ‘change of state of one species into another’. It also introduces the concept of ‘Omega’ – a parameter which describes the amount of tissue damaged by the heating process. I… Continue reading “Thermal Relaxation Times” – Body Language magazine
Article This is an article I co-authored with my good friend, PA Torstensson, about our interpretation of the idea that thermal relaxation times (TRTs) can be used to determine the pulse duration of laser energy when applied to skin conditions (hair, blood vessels etc). We disagree with this idea – as the title hints at!… Continue reading “Thermal relaxation times: an outdated concept in photothermal treatments”

I wrote this article a few years ago after people kept asking me what the difference was between CE marked systems and FDA ‘approved’ systems. PDF version Cosmetic News version – page 22 Mike. email@example.com
Here is an article I wrote about the lack of meters to check the energy output of IPL systems. It’s a bit of a moan, to be honest! PDF version Cosmetic News version – page 44 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?
