Project Description

Melasma

A unique, multi-wavelength melasma laser treatment

For melasma laser treatment, the StarWalker® range is especially effective due to the selectivity of Q-switched light, enabling it to break apart pigments only and not cells. This means that pigment destruction can take place without ablating the skin – a unique feature that also allows other treatment possibilities, such as the safe and effective removal of complex, multi-coloured tattoos.

How does it work?

Especially effective for difficult-to-treat conditions due to the selectivity of Q-switched light, Fotona lasers are able to break apart pigments only and not cells.

A step by step approach to treating melasma:

Step 1: uses Q-switched Nd:YAG delivering a sub-cellular photo-acoustic effect oriented to the destruction of melanosomes and fragmentation of dermal melanin.

Step 2: uses low fluence, short pulse duration pulses to reduce cytokine production.

Step 3: uses a fractional Q-switched laser to stimulate the exchange of keratinocytes and provide non-thermal rejuvenation of the tissue.

Step 4: uses Nd:YAG to treat the vascular element.

In addition to Q-switched lasers, Er:YAG lasers can also be used for the ablation of keratoses, moles and other pigmented lesions, enabling the removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled and relatively bloodless manner.
