Traditionally for hair removal and vascular treatments, the Long Pulsed Laser is less affected by melanin which can be a safer option for darker skin types up to 6.
Ideal for tattoo removal, Q-switched lasers use a method of delivery which offers short high-peak power pulses to break up the ink so the body can reabsorb it.
Passive and Active Q-Switching
There are two types of Q-switched laser – Active and Passive. Active Q-switched technology is found in the larger, high-end dedicated machines which have articulated arms. These machines offer higher power and better controlled pulse stability, which is delivered via a Pockels cell. They are far more expensive to purchase and run, and some people find them less ergonomic to operate.
In contrast, the more compact handpieces utilise smaller optical switches for more convenient operation. These handpieces offer a good balance of results, usability and value.
