Dover: This is the nicest laser that I own. Dr. Arndt and I and
others were approached and asked what our ideal vascular laser
would look like. We told them it had to be small, solid state, key
turn on and off, silent, large treatment window, contact cooling,
variable spot sizes, variable pulse durations, and high energy. To
my amazement two years later we received this amazing device.
Treatment of Telangiectatic Rosacea With 532nm KTP Wavelength
Green: This is a gentleman with telangiectatic rosacea and in
this case I treated with same settings that Dr. Dover likes to use
of 7Jcm2 , 10mm, 10ms, and 10°C. We are not getting purpura
with this laser vs the pulse dye laser because the KTP laser delivers
the pulse as a top hat so it is smooth and even heating.
While the pulse dye also has 10ms pulse durations but there
are micropulses within that pulse. There used to be four micro
pulses and with the newer generation there are eight micropulses.
That stecato heating might result in delayed purpura.
