The HELIOS II laser represents a new standard for the treatment of pigmented lesions. The HELIOS II is an Nd:YAG Q-Switch fractional laser. Lasers that are used in aesthetic treatments can target: Chromophore (Melanin),  Hemoglobin (Blood), Water

The HELIOS II targets chromophore or melanin and is used extensively to target pigment and pigmented lesions in the skin. Since its debut, HELIOS II has set a new benchmark for all Q-Switch Nd:YAG lasers with its patented technologies.

What is an Nd:YAG Laser?
Nd:YAG is short for neodymium-doped yttrium garnet. Nd:YAG is a term used to differentiate the many types of lasers and specifically refers to the type of high-powered laser energy produced by the laser head that is delivered through the machine’s handpiece. Usually Nd:YAG is delivered through a 1064nm or a 532nm wavelength, but can also produce transition wavelengths from 940nm-1440nm.
