Dual Wavelengths (1064 nm or 532 nm)
SkinClear TA-2 incorporates a KTP crystal frequency doubling dual wavelength feature to allow the user to easily change from a 1064 nm to a 532 nm single-wavelength laser beam. The frequency doubling dual wavelength feature allows you to treat multiple indications and several different tattoo colors and pigments.
Super Q Passive Organic Crystals for Optimal Performance
Most lasers use active/mechanical means to accomplish Q-Switching. These mechanical methods can include electrical switches (utilizing the Pockels effect), rotating prisms and acoustooptic Q-Switching. Mechanical Q-Switching methods require periodic maintenance and calibration to retain optimal efficiency.
SkinClear TA-2 utilizes a proprietary, organic saturable absorber for its method of Q-Switching inside the laser cavity. When the passive crystals become fully saturated with the 1064 nm energized photons, they quickly release the stored photons in a nanosecond burst of pure 1064 nm energy. The passive crystal method of Q-Switching, by design, offers the same high-speed release of energy as devices utilizing mechanical switching, but with improved reliability, economy and longevity. SkinClear TA-2 also requires less maintenance due to having fewer optical elements inside the laser cavity.
Self Contained Laser Handpiece
No more cumbersome, delicate articulated arm and mirror systems. SkinClear TA-2 features a high performance optical cavity contained within an easy-to hold laser handpiece. The direct delivery laser handpiece replaces the high maintenance articulated arm and multiple mirror systems used in many other lasers. The laser handpiece is low-maintenance, requires no alignment and requires only an annual recalibration. The short optical cavity produces a higher Q (i.e., quality of the cavity relative to loss of energy) with lower energy loss and a desirable high powered laser pulse. The compact, self-contained cavity produces a direct delivery output pulse with a flat (top-hat) beam profile. ‘Direct Delivery’ provides even distribution of laser energy to the target, with minimal risk of collateral damage
to the tissue.
