The hallmark of PhotoAcoustic technology is high peak power and short pulse duration. This combination generates a photomechanical or PhotoAcoustic action against the target chromophore whether it’s tattoo ink, pigment or collagen.
The electro-optic (EO) Q-Switch, acting as a high-speed shutter, stores energy between pulses enabling the laser to produce peak power output of 200 megawatts in 5-20 nanosecond pulse widths. The MedLite C6 forces energy at such a high rate, the target chromophores vibrate and shatter, without harming the surrounding skin.
Flat-Top Beam Profile
Flat-Top Beam Profile MedLite C6’s PhotoAcoustic technology is delivered through a truly homogenous, flat-top beam profile, without spikes or hot spots. As a result, the energy is distributed evenly from the perimeter to the center of the beam with no vacuoles or dead areas. This homogenous profile allows more efficient delivery of the energy and more pronounced tissue reaction under the dermis to better fragment target chromophores.
The ultimate proof of a genuine flat-top beam profile is in the tissue reaction consistent results, less complications and no patient downtime.
