||Powerful Nd:YAG Laser with Dual Wavelengths The Palomar Q-YAG 5 allows users to switch between a 1064-nm single-wavelength beam and a 1064/532-nm mixed-wavelength beam. The 1064-nm wavelength is ideal for treating darker tattoo inks and dermal pigmented lesions, such as Nevi of Ota. The mixed 1064/532-nm wavelength is better suited for brighter colors and epidermal pigmented lesions, such as solar lentigines. In addition, the mixed wavelength permits brighter/more superficial and deeper/darker target areas to be treated simultaneously. A Broad Treatment Range The Palomar Q-YAG 5 also allows users to switch easily and quickly among three spot sizes: 2 mm, 4 mm, and 6 mm. The numerous combinations of spot sizes and wavelengths permit treatment of many different kinds of tattoos and pigmented lesions. Effective and Easy-to-Operate A state-of-the-art optical design gives the Palomar Q-YAG 5 a very flat beam profile. This means that energy is distributed evenly throughout the treatment target. Consequently, treatments are more effective, more predictable, and easier to deliver. Increased Reliability and Reduced Maintenance Costs Since the laser rod is built right into the handpiece, the Palomar Q-YAG 5 requires fewer optical components than lasers with other energy delivery methods. This results in increased reliability, reduced maintenance requirements, and a much more compact design. In the rare event that the system needs to be serviced, it is small and light enough to be shipped directly to Palomar via an express carrier. This added convenience maximizes the uptime of the laser and lets Palomar offer top-notch service contracts at much lower costs than other companies.
Transportable and Sharable Thanks to the very compact design, the Palomar Q-YAG 5 can also be easily integrated into a variety of offices. The rugged cart can be quickly wheeled from office to office, and most persons can even lift and carry the laser between locations. This is a valuable feature for physicians who have multiple offices or business partnerships with other physicians.
