transformed for this popular modality. Expansion ports also support most
other DermaWave heads, past and present.
Now for Some Technical Magic
Details That May Interest You ...
The DermaWave Palette Has
WIT (Wavelength Interlace Technology) -
The problem with running more than one wavelength at
a time - in the same instant - such as red and blue, is a matter of 'destructive
interference' where two or more wavelengths interact and partially cancel
one another. After all, Red and Blue are at complete opposite ends of
the rainbow - and when they 'collide', they try to 'beat one another up'
and, in that 'struggle' make each "contender" weaker, less powerful. This
is basic Physics, not 'opinion'. And yet, most ignore it. We don't.
While, to the eye, both the red and blue LEDs
may seem to be on at the same time (lending a 'magenta-like' light), they're
actually being interlaced where, while one wavelength is on, the other one
is actually off. Understand that once light pulses at around 20 pulses per
second (and higher), the eye 'integrates' the events. This is the essence
of how motion picture works where, in film, you're looking at 24 frames (24
individual 'light pulses') per second. But 'the eye' (more precisely, the
brain) integrates the separate events for you to see things as a
continuous event. This is called 'Persistence of Vision' whereby the
brain holds on to what it's just seen for a very brief period of time. The
skin, however, having no 'persistence of vision - no 'visual
memory' - only sees the individual red and blue pulses as separate events
when the different wavelength pulses are alternated.
||Still, motion picture aside, what
we're doing may be regarded as something more akin to modern television
technology (that operates at a higher 'frame rate'). When shopping for a
'flat screen TV' you may have noticed two similar specs: 1080p (for 'progressive
scan') and 1080i (where 'i' stands for 'interlaced').
They're two somewhat different picture delivery systems that achieve pretty
much the same thing.
But what's happening is this ... With video interlace,
the video is divided up into two segments: The even-ordered scan 'lines',
followed by the 'odd-ordered' scan lines. That is, you're not getting 'the
entire picture' at once. Your eye/brain is integrating the two phases to
look full and continuous. That's pretty much what we're doing at DermaWave.
Things may look 'all at once', but they aren't. And by separating the two
'wavelength phases', each one becomes much more efficient in pure
output where the otherwise competing waves aren't 'beating one another up'.
No other panel system does this.
Moreover, with extrodinarily rapid pulsing in our instance,
we can also vary the relative length of time between the two wave phases
over time. As the Palette can run through a series of program algorithms
- from Rosacea to Acne - each individual wavelength pulse-time can vary between
50%~92% for each cycle at a given point in time. This requires no setting
on your part. All is done for you. Again, at a rate far faster than the eye
But If Blue Is Always Active,
Doesn't That Mean We're Also Giving 'Acne Treatments' to Those Who Don't
Have It? ... Kind of ... But you're
also giving them something else that's good ...
Consider how the 420nm blue wavelength works - how
it helps kill the acne bacteria. No, the 'blue light' is
not an 'anti-bacterial' light. Anti-Bacterial light would be
UV - ultra-violet - and pretty deep into that range, at that. You
most generally don't want to expose your skin to it. What the 420nm blue
range does is this: It attracts something that's already in your body
- Porphyrins - attracted to the skin surface like moths to a porch light.
And it is these Porphyrins that carry an abundance of oxygen where it is
the oxygen that helps kill the acne bacteria from behind. So,
in the absence of acne, the exposure to the 420nm wavelength pulls oxygen
to the skin surface - for all - providing something akin to an infused oxygen
treatment - from behind. And that ... is a good thing.
But Why No
Because we're Skin Care Technology creators - that's
why - not a distributor of pain relief devices. Point of fact, infrared has
never been approved by the FDA for 'cosmetic enhancement'. Not once. Not
ever. And there were good reasons for this. So, in the interest of actual
skin care, from the design / engineering point of view, we just regard the
inclusion of infrared LEDs to be a waste of space that could be far better
utilized for actual skin-related LED enhancement. While others have
employed them, as a matter of history, this is a throw-back to the early
days of photo-rejuvenation when so many 'suppliers' simply purchased ready-made
pain relief machines - and the relabled them as photo-rejuvenation skin care
devices. Then, as more quickly jumped on the LED bandwagon, they made the
ill-informed mistake of copying them. We, on the other hand ... never
But Doesn't Infrared Penetrate
Okay, if you wish, let's put aside the fact
that - again - infrared has never been approved for actual skin care ...
Despite what so many impromptu 'Internet Skin Care Experts' may have told
you, their deeper penetration argument is an incomplete theorem that ignores
'real world' - and misses half of the equation. Point of fact, until
it encounters something opaque, light doesn't simply 'stop'
at a given distance or depth. The cited 'penetration depths' are based on
a ratio of a light device's output level relative to a given
power loss level through a medium - like skin, say. But imagine
you had an amber/red LED that started out with over 8 times
the luminence power level at the source, relative to an infrared LED. At
a 10mm depth (or at any point after), the amber/red LED would actually have
more luminence power at a 10mm skin depth than the most
powerful infrared LED currently made. But moreover, in real world,
take the shortest of blue wavelengths with the least cited
'penetration level'. With our 'Blues' you'll hit skull long
before the LED runs out of penetration power and luminence level. Complete
equation. Real world.
Okay, Enough of the Math and
Science Classes. Here Are Some Additional Goodies to Know.
||The DermaWave Palette panels
have integrated 'heat-sinking'
that absorbs and dissipates nearly 95% of the heat generated by the ultra-high
powered LEDs away from the skin and sends it out the back, further
buffered by twin layers of Lucite.
|The DermaWave Palette panels
aren't powered by a simple AC adapter you plug in the wall outlet, once sold
at Radio Shack for consumer electronics. There wouldn't be enough power there
for us, even if we wanted to use such a thing. But we didn't. Instead,
you get a technology-packed power and modulation console. And even the jacks
and ports (more on the back) are made by Switchcraft, as used in professional
recording studios. We additionally import the heavy-duty and
beautifully machined toggle switches from Germany. No light 'bubble
switches' to break down over time.
||And about those expansion
ports on the back ... We provide two of them knowing that many of
our DermaWave customers use some of our heads 'in stereo' - two at once.
The ports become automatically powered when you plug something into them
- yes - including the MC2 Micro-Current head for complete system capabilities
and possibilities. May be used with or without the Palette panels being

high, and decidedly compact in all other dimensions.
