Versatility: Two Powerful Wavelengths
The Duality produces energy in the most commonly-used wavelengths for tattoo removal: 1064nm and 532nm. With this combination, the Duality can treat the full range of tattoo ink colors – black, brown, purple, blue, red, orange, green, and yellow. The Duality provides the essential wavelengths to completely remove ink in 95%+ of tattoos – and therefore is the perfect choice for virtually every laser tattoo removal practice.
Some other Nd:YAG lasers promise additional wavelengths for treating rare tattoo shades through handpiece dye kits, yet these “add-on” wavelengths are ineffective due to extremely low energy production (often only 1/3 the power). Don’t be fooled by handpiece wavelength gimmicks – they are never powerful enough to completely remove tattoos.
If treatment of rare, resistant colors is important to your practice, visit the Astanza Trinity product page for more information.
Power: Active Q-switching
The Duality features active Q-switching, a technology that produces only truly powerful pulses through active loss modulation. The pulses output by active Q-switching can be up to many megawatts for a billionth of a second, to create powerful photo-acoustic waves that offer a second method of fracturing tattoo ink.
Less sopthisticated tattoo removal lasers use passive Q-switching, which produces repetitive shots of dramatically lower pulse energies. Without powerful pulses, tattoo ink cannot be removed, and practitioners will be able to offer nothing but ineffective treatments beyond the first couple of sessions.
Efficiency: TruePower Technology
The Duality includes TruePower design to provide optimal output energy. The Duality creates TruePower through usage of large cylindrical crystals inside industry-leading optical cavities, high-intensity flash lamps, and precision optics for minimized energy bleed.
TruePower allows for maximum transference of energy, allowing practitioners to reach unparalleled levels of power for efficient ink removal. Unlike other lasers that can’t offer effective treatments beyond the first few treatments, the Duality pushes through barriers to offer complete removal of stubborn ink later in the removal process.
Safety: Square, Flat-Top Beam
The Astanza Duality produces a laser beam with attractive flat top characteristics. The flat-top homogenized beam creates uniform power distribution across the surface of the skin, without the micro-spikes and “hot spots” of traditional Gaussian-style beams. The Duality’s homogenized beam allows for even treatment application and a reduced risk in unwanted side effects for patients.
In addition, the Duality’s unique square-spot beam shape gives practitioners the ability to avoid overlap of laser pulses on the skin. With minimized treatment overlap from the square spot profile, patients with darker skin tones have minimized risks of pigmentation changes.
Usability: Touch Screen and Articulated Arm
Busy practices appreciate the easy-input touch screen on the Duality. The key adjustment variables (wavelength, fluence, spot size, and repetition rate) can be changed in seconds through the clear and precise interface. The Duality’s easy-to-use screen allows for faster control and, therefore, faster procedures.
The Duality also features an articulated arm for increased control and reliability. Articulated arms are the most reliable method of beam delivery for lasers that transfer massive amounts of energy, like the Duality system. Featuring a counterbalance and multiple pivot locations, the Duality’s articulated arm gives full freedom of motion for practitioners to comfortably provide treatments all day long.
Convenience: Fast Warm-Up and Repetition Rates
Many experienced tattoo removal practitioners are familiar with devices that take 5 to 20 minutes to “warm up” after being turned on. In contrast, the Duality is ready for use in less than 45 seconds after it is plugged into the wall. Once turned on, the Duality can swiftly transition from Standby to Ready mode in mere seconds.
The Duality’s high maximum repetition rate of 10 pulses per second also contributes to fast, easy treatments. With its high repetition rate, the Duality’s pulses are released more frequently, allowing for faster coverage of the treatment area, more efficient procedures, and minimized pain for patients.
