Q&A on the Laser Treatment

Is the laser treatment painful?
There is almost no pain since the irradiation time of the laser is 1/1,000 sec.
Is there any harmful side effects?
There is only few side effects or after-effects and safety is confirmed since the laser is absorbed selectively by the treating object.
Is it expensive?

It varies from few thousand yen to few ten thousand yen, depending upon the size and number of the spots, freckles or moles.

About the Laser Treatment

If the laser within visual range is irradiated on the skin surface, a part of it reflects on the surface and the rest penetrates the skin. The strength of the laser lessens as it is scattered and absorbed at each layer of the epidermis and cutis. As for the treatment of the melanin pigmentation, the longer the wavelength, increases the effect against the melanin of depth as the decrease of laser by scattering lessenes, although the absorption lessens. The laser is the best-balanced wavelength agaist the absorption of the pigment and the normal tissue. The shorter the irradiating time, the less the solidification death of the surrounding (normal) tissue by the heat conduction, which is necessary for the treatment of depth. LRT-301A/QS qualifies the above conditions as the oscillating wavelength 694mm and irradiating time 30ns, which is developed as the device to treat the Ota's nevus, etc.

If the laser is irradiated, it is absorbed by the pigment near the surface. The pigment which absorbed laser is destroyed and phagocytized by macrophage.

As the irradiation is repeated, the pigment of the surface layer is destroyed gradually and the laser reaches deep to the skin.

The pigment will disappear.
