KTP Treatment

KTP selectively coagulates or kills specific tissues, potentially improving conditions while requiring little recuperation time. A range of acquired cutaneous vascular lesions, such as telangiectasis, cherry angiomas, and poikiloderma of Civatte, might benefit from its usage in the therapy, as well as some superficial port wine stains (vascular malformation). Numerous frequency conversion applications can make use of it.

About KTP Treatment

In order to treat vascular and pigmented skin disorders including spider veins, rosacea, and sunspots, a green laser is used in the KTP (Potassium Titanyl Phosphate) therapy. The method stimulates coagulation or destruction by selectively heating the damaged tissue, requiring little recovery time and perhaps improving the condition. For appropriateness, get advice from a medical practitioner.

 

Procedure of KTP Treatment

The KTP laser relies on selective photothermolysis, where specific skin components called chromophores absorb its wavelength more than surrounding tissue. Melanin, oxyhemoglobin, and red tattoo pigment are targeted. To avoid affecting nearby tissue, the laser pulse duration is shorter than the target's cooling time, containing heat effects. Modern KTP lasers include integrated cooling systems to protect the skin during vascular procedures. Upon hitting the skin, the laser light is either reflected, transmitted, or absorbed.
Targeted chromophores absorb light energy, creating heat that kills cells, but spread can cause issues. KTP lasers aren't ideal for darker skin due to melanin targeting. Adjusting pulse width and cooling alters its skin effects. Q-switched KTP uses nanosecond pulses for tattoo pigment, while picosecond lasers offer pigment fragmentation but encounter plasma veil issues at very short pulse widths.
