Introducing the Quanta Duetto which includes both the Nd:Yag and Alexandrite laser..
Our new state of the art laser has the functionality to use the laser individually or to mix both lasers together at varying degrees of intensity to give a more adaptable treatment.
The Alexandrite ....
755nm visible, near infrared wavelength. Extremely effective for Fitzpatrick Skin types 1 to 3 and those people with fair stubborn hair, its a strong laser which means it is only suitable for those with fair, untanned skin.
It penetrates deeply enough to affect the growth of hair (the longer the wavelength the deeper the penetration). Alexandrite lasers offer a comparatively quick to use due to larger spot sizes delivered through lightweight fibre-optic systems and the option to use the laser with or with out gel, with out gel means the client can feel less sticky and more comfortable post treatment.
The Nd:Yag .....
1065nm infrared wavelength. Great for people with darker skin as there is much less melanin (pigment) absorption than with shorter visible light wavelengths. So it will greatly reduce the chance of any side effects.
The advantage with Nd:YAG is that as the wavelength is longer, there is much deeper penetration into the dermis 4-5mm with much less risk of pigmentation changes. It also has a fast repetition rate and can be used on larger areas of skin like the legs and back. Recommended for darker, Fitzpatrick 4-6, skin types 'Nd' stands for Neodymium, and 'YAG' stands for Yttrium Aluminium Garnet.
Duetto Laser (Nd:YAG & Alexandrite combined)
Suitable for skin types 4-6 that have light or very fine hair and need a slightly higher degree of energy which is safe to use on darker skin, when introduced slowly. For example those clients that have already had laser and have some stubborn hairs left or clients that find the Nd:YAG Laser too painful as it can reduce the discomfort.
This is an excellent laser to have towards the end of your treatments as it will banish those harder to target hairs that are still remaining.
