Project Description

Fotona StarWalker® MaQX

Ultra performance Q-switched laser system

Q-switched lasers can effectively removing 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.

Fotona’s Q-switched laser produces high-energy nanosecond pulses that are efficient at removing many types of tattoos; but it combines the high energy capabilities of nanosecond lasers with the ultrashort pulse peak powers of traditional picosecond lasers within its nanosecond pulse. This gives picosecond tissue interaction with nanosecond  power.

Tattoo removal requires powerful, multi-wavelength solutions for the most effective results. The best available laser systems are the highly versatile StarWalker® devices. Both systems have a high-powered, Q-switched, multiple wavelength Nd:YAG laser at their core.

Available in two models:

Fotona StarWalker® MaQX: A nanosecond laser with a difference as it has ultrashort pulse peak powers of traditional picosecond lasers within its nanosecond pulse

StarWalker® PQX: A picosecond laser which has even shorter wavelength than the nanolasers, consisting of a high energy train of ultra-short bursts of energy in trillionths of a second.

These lasers’ energy, four colours and patented FracTat™ method make the StarWalker® range industry leaders in tattoo removal system. The StarWalker® MaQX offering nano technology but encompassing short pico pulses within its nano pulse and the StarWalker® PQX as a pico laser

In addition, both systems possess four complementary wavelengths and 14 laser modalities. The StarWalker® range functions as a highly versatile, multipurpose system that performs a wide range of applications in aesthetics

Laser technology inside the StarWalker® system

  • Patented solutions for ultimate safety and precision, Fotona’s exclusive VSP and EFC technologies give peace of mind that the parameters selected are being safely and precisely delivered by the system throughout treatment duration.
  • 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® into tightly focused arrays.
  • Vacuum Cell and OPTOflex® technology ensure the flashlamp is only activated when the actual laser output is required. A much lower burden on the laser system is imposed, resulting in a longer flashlamp lifetime and lower costs of laser system maintenance.

Key benefits to you and your customers

Key Treatments

Tattoo removal

With the latest and most advanced technology, the Fotona Q-switched lasers work to effectively remove even the most complex and multi-coloured tattoos


Pigmented lesions

14 laser modalities for the ablation of keratoses, moles and other pigmented lesions, enabling the removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled manner


Thread veins

A highly effective treatment that works by targeting Nd:YAG laser energy to the interior of a vein, causing the vein wall to shrink and seal shut
