Power of a pico laser with the energy of a Q-switched laser
A Q-switched laser that can effectively remove complex and multi-coloured tattoos. Multi-wavelength, Q-switched laser systems with frequency-doubled KTP can produce very short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of skin to be selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments.
Pico lasers have an even shorter wavelength than the nanolasers, consisting of a high energy train of ultra-short bursts of energy in trillionths of a second. This in turn enables the photomechanical impact to shatter tiny skin targets without injury to the surrounding skin
Fotona’s StarWalker® PQX combines the high energy capabilities of nanosecond lasers with the ultrashort pulse peak powers of traditional pico lasers.
The StarWalker® PQX’s unique TMD (Transverse Mode Discrimination) laser oscillator technology, combined with the ASP pulse control delivers very short Q-switched pulses consisting of a high energy train of ultra-short bursts of energy in trillionths of a second. This in turn enables the photomechanical impact to shatter tiny skin targets without injury to the surrounding skin.
Laser technology inside the StarWalker® PQX system
- When the patented Fotona FracTat® procedure is performed, micro holes are drilled into the skin using a fractional ablative laser handpiece. The micro holes act as pressure relief ducts through which gasses can escape without building up excessive pressure.
- Full-beam and fractional handpiece technology enables physicians to provide advanced solutions for a broad range of treatments. Fractional handpieces harness the powerful photomechanical effect of the StarWalker® PQX into tightly focused arrays.
- 5 laser wavelengths to cover the complete absorption spectrum of melanin, oxyhemoglobin and water. The wavelengths are located at appropriate skin absorption peaks and minimums to treat structures at different skin depths.
