effective 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for treating leg vascular conditions. With truly independent control of pulse width, spot size and power, the Cutera system can target a wider range of vessels than other systems, including competitive 1064 nm wavelengths.
About the 1064 nm Wavelength
The 1064 nm laser has proved to be a superior light source for the treatment of a wide range of vascular lesions — including the clinically challenging deep reticular vessels on the lower extremities. Deeper penetration and a more moderate hemoglobin absorption makes 1064 nm wavelength more useful for the deeper vessels. Further, with the right combination of parameters, the 1064 nm wavelength is also suitable for more superficial telangiectases and spider veins on both the face and legs.
This laser Controls the depth of penetration through spot sizes 3, 5, 7 and 10 mm
Variable pulse durations to adjust to different vessel diameters
Moderate hemoglobin absorption but minimal melanin absorption
Gold plated copper cooling hand piece with more than 10 times the thermal conductivity of sapphire windows
ClearView hand piece for unobstructed view of the target
