Ultra-High Peak Power for Better Ink Shattering

Peak power is the difference for better ink shattering for faster ink removal. The Duality combines two advanced specifications – an ultra-short (6000 picosecond) pulse duration with high pulse energy  – to deliver unparalleled peak power and photo-acoustic waves for ink fracturing.

With industry leading fluence options (up to 22 J/cm2), the Duality has more power for treating dark and stubborn inks in fewer treatments.

Duality Ink Shattering

Photo-Acoustic Pigment Shattering

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.

 Versatile for Ink Colors

The Q-switched Nd:YAG Duality produces energy in the most trusted wavelengths for tattoo removal: 1064 nm and 532 nm. With this combination, the Duality can treat a wide 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.

Duality Wavelength Targeting

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 1/6 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 (such as bright blue or green) is important to your practice, visit the Astanza Trinity product page for more information.

 Fewer Treatments Needed

The Duality is a next-generation tattoo removal laser, delivering better ink shattering with each treatment, so patients need fewer overall treatments. Unlike older Q-switched lasers that could take 15+ treatments to achieve removal, the Duality removes a wide range of tattoos with fast results – some in just 2 treatments.

Square Beam for Better Results

The Astanza Duality produces a laser beam with a flat top profile. 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.

Duality Square Spot Laser Beam

Duality Square Spot Beam Profile

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.

Designed for Busy Practices

Duality Tattoo Removal Laser TestimonialMany 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 pulses are released more frequently, allowing for faster coverage of the treatment area, more efficient procedures, and minimized pain for patients.
