Cutera CoolGlide vs NdYAG laser - Buffalo Niagara, NY

The Cutera coolGlide platform has a long pulsed NdYAG 1064 nm laser. It is just a trademarked platform manufactured by Cutera. 

The skin chromophores targeted by the KTP laser are melanin and oxyhaemoglobin.

Nd YAG laser has a wave length of 1064 nm and has the capability to reach deeper layers of skin tissue than other types of lasers. In the Q-switched mode, Nd AG produces 2 wavelengths, one in the infrared range (1064 nm) and a second beam of 532 nm for superficial skin lesions.
