Wide range of lasers and applications in Hofheim, March 2011. According to current estimates of the German society for oral and maxillo – facial surgery (DGMKG), aesthetic Laser Medicine is one of the most common procedures of all aesthetic operations. The areas of application in the face range from wrinkle treatment of targeted areas or the entire face over removal of age spots and other benign unsightly accumulation of pigment in the skin to scar correction, removing warts, benign skin lesions and tattoos. For this purpose, various laser devices and techniques available are the experienced oral and Maxillofacial surgeons. Due to the variety of applications and laser devices is essential”a careful training and training of the attending surgeon and experience, Prof.
Dr. Dr. Hans-Robert Metelmann warns of the quorum of the training course DALM (diploma in aesthetic Laser Medicine), University of Greifswald, on the occasion of the practice management seminar of the DGMKG from 25 to 27 February 2011 in Frankfurt. The basic working principle of the laser is based on the selective Photothermolysis (destroyed by heat) for melanin (complementary pigment to the staining of cells), hemoglobin (oxygen transport protein), intracellular water, or outer pigments. The big advantage of a laser treatment: A targeted approach, in which adjacent tissue is not destroyed. In addition, the laser can be used in selected fields of application as efficient scalpel. Laser types: Who does what depending on tissue structures and applications differ expert 3 laser systems: fabric can be with the wavelengths of the surgical Laser cut and wear off; This group includes inter alia the CO2 laser and the erbium: YAG laser. Vascular laser work on hemoglobin, including as a dye laser or neodymium YAG laser with a long impulse of exposure to. Pigment lasers have the appropriate wavelengths for melanin or for outer pigments (Ruby Laser, KTP laser and Alexandrite laser or) Diode laser).
