A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11896841B2) discloses a photo-thermal targeted treatment system designed to damage a target embedded in a medium. The system comprises a controller, a photo-thermal treatment unit with a laser, and a cooling unit. The treatment protocol involves a pre-conditioning procedure, a photo-thermal treatment procedure, and a cooling procedure, all administered using the laser without changing the preset power setting and pulse timing setting. The laser emits a series of light pulses with specific parameters, including power level, pulse length, and interval between pulses, applied in a scanned fashion over a preset area. The system ensures the medium's temperature remains below a damage threshold while heating the target above its damage threshold.

Additionally, the patent includes methods for using the system, such as defining parameters for light pulses, administering the series of light pulses in a scanned fashion, and monitoring the medium's temperature during treatment. Another method involves automatically initiating the treatment protocol based on the skin surface temperature reaching a preset threshold without manual input. Furthermore, a method for automatically terminating the treatment protocol is detailed, including defining parameters for light pulses, administering pre-conditioning and photo-thermal treatment procedures, cooling the treatment area, and monitoring the skin surface temperature to automatically stop the treatment when the threshold is reached. These innovative methods aim to enhance the efficiency and precision of photo-thermal targeted treatments for various applications.
