Aura KTP

What is a KTP laser?

A KTP laser is a solid-state laser that uses a potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) crystal as its frequency doubling device. The KTP crystal is engaged by a beam generated by a neodymium:yttrium aluminium garnet laser.

What is KTP laser used for?
The following skin disorders may be treated with KTP lasers using a US Federal Drug Agency (FDA)-approved machine, such as The Excel V® (Cutera). The Revlite SI (ConBio) is a Q-switched KTP laser. Both of these lasers also have a 1064 nm module.

  • Cutaneous vascular lesions
    KTP laser is useful in the treatment of some superficial port wine stains (vascular malformation) and a variety of acquired cutaneousvascular lesions, including telangiectasis, cherry angiomas and poikiloderma of Civatte.

  • Pigmented and non-vascular skin lesions
    KTP lasers can be effective for freckles, superficial dyspigmentation (eg epidermal melasma) and lentigos.
