Q-SWITCHED LASER PLATFORM TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS
Q-Plus EVO is based on a powerful Q-Switched laser technology that ensures a great versatility in clinical applications. Q-Switched ruby laser pulses(694nm) are effective for the removal of many benign epidermal lesions involving melanin, especially lentigines and cafe-au-lait macules. The treatment is safe and well-tolerated. Usually single treatments are sufficient although occasionally a second one may be required to remove skip areas of residual pigment at the edges of the lesion.
THE Q-SWITCHED MODE
In Q-Switched mode, very short pulses (30ns) deliver very high peak power (hundreds of Mega Watts) enabling a highly efficient photo-acoustic effect and drastically reducing thermal interaction with tissue. As a result, the unwanted tattoos and natural pigments of the skin are fragmented in small particles that are removed through the process of phagocytosis.

Q-SWITCHED WITH PULSED LASERS
The pulsed effectively perform treatment of aged and pigmented skin. These machines are composed of Ruby 694nm. The effects are based on the selective thermal damage of the skin targets such as melanin, blood and water. 694 nm has relatively low HbO2 absorption but well melanin absorption compared to the other wavelengths.
The short pulse duration, high intensity, and red wavelength induces preferential injury to pigment-containing cells, Q-switched ruby lasers wavelength(694nm) are well suited for the removal of benign epidermal pigmented lesions, in addition to their ability to remove tattoos with little or no scarring. This wavelength is therefore useful clinical instruments for this purpose.
FLAT TOP OPTIBEAM II TECHNOLOGY
The laser beam profile must be as much homogeneous as possible, otherwise longer healing time and side effects can occur. The extremely high laser peak power of these devices (more than 160 MW) is delivered on the skin without any “hot points” in the spot size.
OPTIBEAM II® handpieces assure a flat top beam profile due to its advanced optical technology, able to distribute the laser power homogeneously all over the spot size. The OPTIBEAM II® has squared, rounded and fractionated beam profiles. These handpieces are all not convergent to maximize the delivery of energy in deep skin and to be used in safety also if the handpiece is not in perfect contact with the skin.
