Nd:YAG laser technology
Adjustable spot size and integrated cooling
The Nd:YAG laser module employed in the MultiFlex+ system features a number of innovations that make it ideal for treatment of leg veins and a range of other vascular lesions.
The Nd:YAG hand-piece furthermore offers superb ergonomics with smooth adjustability of working light, aiming beam and spot size.
Ellipse's Nd:YAG laser comes with 3 interchangeable tips: A standard circular tip for treatment of most vessels. A semi-circular tip for use close to the nose or eye. And a Sapphire window tip to treat underlying feeder vessels.
What does Nd:YAG mean?
Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet; Nd:Y3Al5 O12) is a crystal that is used as a lasing medium for solid-state lasers.
How does an Nd:YAG laser work?
A laser is an electronic-optical device that emits coherent, monochromatic light. The Ellipse Nd:YAG laser, with a wavelength of 1064 nm, is optically pumped using a flash lamp.
How does an Nd:YAG laser work on vascular lesions?
Treating vascular conditions in general is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis performed with a single pulse.
Why is the Nd:YAG laser better than I²PL for treatment of certain vascular lesions such as leg veins?
Leg veins and reticular vessels are normally deep, which is why Nd:YAG in most cases respond better than IPL.
