WHAT IS FOTONA STARWALKER®?
Fotona StarWalker® is the most versatile Q-Switched Laser System which combines 4 wavelengths & 14 laser modalities for different types of applications such as Inflamed Acne, Dark Scars, Melasma, Dark Under Eye Circles, Birthmarks & Freckles.
HOW DOES FOTONA STARWALKER® WORK?
Fotona StarWalker’s unique Transverse Mode Discrimination laser oscillator technology combined with the Adaptive Stuctured Pulse control delivers very short (5 nsec) Q-switched pulses consisting of a high energy train of ultra-short bursts of energy in trillionths of a second, enabling photomechanical impact to shatter tiny skin targets without injury to the surrounding skin. StarWalker’s technology thus combines the high energy capabilities of nanosecond lasers with the ultrashort pulse peak powers of traditional picosecond lasers. Fotona’s StarWalker laser system features the entire range of super-short pulse technologies in a single, high-performance solution.
