Other IPL & Laser Technologies > Fotona long pulse Er:YAG v CO2 for resurfacing

Hi there,
I am a doctor working in London UK. I have a question I was hoping someone could help me with.

Fotona lasers have a dualis machine which deliver Er:YAG at different pulse widths (VSP, SP, LP, XLP)

One of the criticisms of Er:YAG when compared to CO2 is the lack of thermal effect, therby creating less shrinkage.

Does anybody who uses a Fotona know if by using the system on LP or XLP whether the effect is more like a CO2?

I would be most grateful for feedback
