The StarWalker is a revolutionary performing laser that’s in the Fotona family that uses photoacoustic rather than photothermolysis energy. Traditionally lasers use heat to treat pigmentation, however, studies have shown over and over again that it would create more pigmentation due to the inflammatory nature of how the skin reacts to heat. Thus, rather than using heat, the StarWalker uses acoustic shockwaves that breaks apart the melanosomes (skin’s pigmentation) and have the lymphatic system remove the pigments from the body naturally. The StarWalker is one of the only effective lasers in treating Melasma and hyperpigmentation. This is because the StarWalker harness the power of the Pico laser, nanolaser, and Q switch laser. Because of the highly controlled wavelengths and precision with micro pulses, StarWalker is safe for all skin types.
Combining four complementary wavelengths and 14 laser modalities, the StarWalker functions as a highly versatile, multipurpose system that performs a wide range of applications in aesthetics. StarWalker’s energy, four colors and proprietary FracTAT™ procedure also make StarWalker an industry leading tattoo removal laser system.
Since its introduction, Fotona’s QX MAX has been globally recognized as an ultraperformance Q-switched laser system. The StarWalker represents the next important evolutionary step forward and takes the system to an even higher level.
StarWalker’s third-generation technology combines the unsurpassed range of pulse duration modes of Fotona’s VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology with the revolutionary capability of ASP™ to adapt the temporal structure of laser pulses to the biophotonic dynamics of laser-tissue interaction. StarWalker is capable of delivering up to an unprecedented 10 J of Q-switched energy in one giant structured MaQX pulse for treating epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions, and includes long-pulse infrared VERSA3 and green VERDE™ modes for enhanced vascular treatments.
Starwalker is offered in our Markham, Yorkville, and North York location.
