What is the difference between Fractional Laser and Q switched ND YAG Laser/ Ruby laser? Can neavus of ota be cured by Fractional Laser?
Naevus of Ota is best treated with our Medlite or Revlite Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. Fractional lasers are not particularly suited to this pigmentation, as they may not reach deep enough, and furthermore, it is best to treat the ‘whole’ pigmentation , rather than just a ‘fraction’ of it per session. The q-switched nature (very short , high energy pulses) of the Medlite/Revlite also means that it is able to shatter the pigmentation to help break it down.
