Old technology Xenon flash lamps result in excessive melanin / blood absorption (lower wavelengths) which increases the risk of patient burn and ineffective treatment. Xenon flash lamps also have inferior depth penetration.
The Krypton flash lamp patented by Novalis Medical produces a “bell curve” wavelength pattern utilizing ALL the useful spectrum wavelengths without the excessive melanin and blood absorption wavelengths. Krypton wavelength output also specifically targets optimal chromophore absorption characteristics of melanin, blood and depth penetration.
This means that when compared to the traditional Xenon lamps, Krypton allows you to do more with less energy resulting in increased patient safety.
