StarWalker® MaQX is a specific model of laser produced by Fotona®, a leading manufacturer of medical and aesthetic laser systems. It is a high-powered, multi-application laser that can be used for a variety of cosmetic and medical treatments, including tattoo removal, skin rejuvenation, hair removal, and more.
The StarWalker® MaQX laser combines two types of laser technology: Q-switched and long-pulsed. Q-switched lasers are highly effective at breaking down pigment in the skin, which makes them ideal for tattoo removal. Long-pulsed lasers, on the other hand, are better suited for treating hair removal and skin rejuvenation.
The StarWalker® MaQX laser also includes an additional feature called VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology. This technology allows for the customization of the laser pulse duration, enabling precise control of the laser’s energy output. This means that the laser can be tailored to the specific needs of the patient and the treatment being performed, making it a more versatile and effective laser system.
Power of a pico Laser with an Energy of a Q-Switched Laser
StarWalker’s unique TMD (Transverse Mode Discrimination) laser oscillator technology combined with the ASP 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.
During a StarWalker® MaQX laser treatment, the laser is calibrated based on the specific treatment being performed, and the laser handpiece is applied to the skin. The laser emits short, intense bursts of light energy, which are absorbed by the skin and targeted to the treatment area. Depending on the treatment, the laser may be applied multiple times to the same area to achieve the desired result.
