NEW Laser Safety Glasses for Nd:YAG systems
NEW Safety Glasses We can now offer new laser safety glasses for the 1064nm wavelength from Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers (typically used for tattoo removal). These new glasses (left) offer a much better visual inspection of the tattoo compared with the standard glasses (see below). However, they can ONLY be used for the 1064nm as they… Continue reading NEW Laser Safety Glasses for Nd:YAG systems
“No Pain, No Gain” – hair removal using light energy!
OK! PDF version This is really quite simple! Human thermal/pain receptors (nociceptors) are triggered at around 45 C. Below that temperature you feel heat – above it, and you feel pain. NASA has proved this beyond doubt! So, to achieve permanent, or even ‘semi-permanent’ hair removal you need to apply sufficient heat energy, for a… Continue reading “No Pain, No Gain” – hair removal using light energy!

Pain relief during laser tattoo removal – a new technique
Article Back in 2012 I carried out a wee experiment to try to speed up the tattoo removal process. I figured that if I compressed the skin, using a glass slide, then everything in the dermis would be a bit closer to the skin surface. Hence, perhaps the whole process might be accelerated a wee… Continue reading Pain relief during laser tattoo removal – a new technique

“Thermal Energy Levels” – my description of how RF operates in the skin
Article People kept asking me how radio frequency (RF) worked in the treatment of skin conditions. It’s pretty simple, really. It’s just electrical heating – nothing new! But, there appears to be a lot of, shall we call it, ‘mis-information’ out there, so I wrote this piece. I’ve also included some info on ‘Heat… Continue reading “Thermal Energy Levels” – my description of how RF operates in the skin
