Here’s a thought… When is the ‘best’ time to fly through space? Given the technology is always advancing, the velocity of space vehicles will tend to increase over time. So, how does this affect journey times in space? Here’s a scenario: Imagine it is the year 2000 and a spacecraft can travel at maximum velocity,… Continue reading Space travel – when???
A bit of fun…. If you treat 10 tattoo patients a day with a Q-switched laser (using a 10 nanosecond pulse width) and each treatment requires, say, 1000 pulses, then the total treatment time is 0.1 milliseconds. This is the actual time you have applied the laser energy! If you operate your laser clinic for… Continue reading How long have you actually treated patients/clients wth lasers?
New Paper – click here I just had a new paper published in the journal ‘Lasers in Medical Science’. It discusses the amount of back-scatter light emanating from the skin during laser treatments. It is much higher than we had previously thought. This comes from new Monte Carlo modeling which found that back-scattering is much… Continue reading New paper – my musings on back-scattered laser light from tattoo treatments
I finally managed to list all my publications – medical/laser journals and trade magazines – into one place – My Publications. Feel free to read through and send me comments, questions, arguments etc. I like a good ‘chat’ about this sort of stuff. I am currently working on a number of new reports into… Continue reading All my publications, so far…
As of now I have a new website covering my LPA stuff – laserprotection.net. It also lists all my publications to date – My Publications. Please visit if you are interested in having your laser/IPL facilities checked for compliance etc. If you need any advice on your laser/IPL equipment please let me know. Mike.
Using IPLs on vascular and pigmented lesions can be very successful when the correct parameters are used. My theoretical research clearly shows that longer pulses are ‘better’ than shorter ones, when dealing with small and large targets. In order to test this I submitted my lovely wife to a series of treatments on her angiomas… Continue reading My ‘Hole in a Stick’ technique…
I have just built a new website for my training stuff – at dermalase-training.com. Go and have a wee look around please. Let me know any comments you may have… Cheers, Mike.
