Title: Medical cosmetic laser with second wavelength enhancement

Abstract: A laser system and process by which prior art medical and cosmetic laser techniques using laser beams chosen to produce selective thermolysis are enhanced by the addition of a second laser beam chosen for much deeper transmission in tissue and more uniform absorption. Preferred embodiments include enforcement with a 1079 nm YAP:Nd laser beam of a 532 nm beam produced by a frequency doubled YAG:Nd laser beam.
