Cutera Flash Lamp Information
A flash lamp generally is found in the laser head of aesthetic laser machines. The lamp creates energy to a desired or predetermined setting and then fires that energy into the other components of the laser head, such as the rod, optics, making it small enough to enter the hand unit, and then finally onto the hand instrument through additional optics which adjusts the size of the laser. If one of these components fails, it can cause the flash lamp to stop working. It is important note that there can be absolutely no dust get into these components, as dust can cause the laser head rod to burn, the flash lamp, flow tubes, and much more. Excessive pressure or a leak in the laser head can also cause the flash lamp to stop working. If you notice a significant decrease in power, this can mean that the laser is no longer efficient or effective enough and needs to be replaced. A faulty power supply or capacitor can cause electrical imbalances in your machine, which can damage or burn the flash lamp.
