Russian Scientists Create Unique Skin Lasers

The scientists of the Lebedev Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Science (FIAN) have developed a new laser to treat skin defects without any side effects, according to Venture Business News. Many experts have already said there were no similral technologies traded in the global marketplace.

      The common lasers for remoing vascular defects of skin usually have high selectivity, resulting in heating of surrounding skin tissues. Such negative effects can be avoided by using a special laser at appropriate for selective capacity wave lengths. 

      Russian scientists was able to create the so-called "yellow" laser for the medical device YACHROMA-MED, used for removal of skin defects. The yellow spectrum's area has an ability to absorb most of the hemoglobin - the blood component, which can be found in different vascular formations. The neibouring tissues will not be heated, if the defect area of skin is treated in short impulses of the yellow laser. It can lower the risk of any side effects.

      The device's authors have succeeded in creating a world-record operational life of the laser. The most consumable component - a special laser tube - must be changed no more than once a year, and that process is as easy as the changing of a common light bulb.

      According to Igor Ponomaryov, the director of the project YACHROMA-MED, operating the laser requires high qualification of a doctor who is going to use it in his practice. This is explained by the fact that the same patch can be removed at low power, as well as ten-times that power. The latter method can lead to wounds and skin craters.
