02 Details

Functionality

StarWalker’s third-generation technology provides highest power and treatment capability in the most advanced and the most compact design.

  • OPTOflex® arm with patented vacuum cell technology for distortion-free beam delivery to the treatment site
  • 14 laser modalities and 4 laser wavelengths for the widest range of treatments
  • Pulse modalities from nanoseconds to microseconds, milliseconds and seconds for optimal effect on the tissue site
  • Wireless footswitch for freedom and convenience in system control
  • Top-hat beam profile for uniform treatments with predictable results
  • Quick-release mechanism for fast exchange of handpieces
  • Compact handpieces with automatic real-time handpiece type and spotsize detection
  • Fotona proprietary ASP (Adaptive Structured Pulse) technology enabling laser pulse shapes to be adapted to the bio photonic dynamics of a particular treatment

Patented solutionsfor a homogenous beam profile

Homogeneity of a laser beam profile ensures safety during treatment since laser energy is evenly distributed across the treated area. Epidermal damage is minimised and the risks of bleeding, tissue splatter and transient textural changes in the skin are decreased. Achieving homogeneous beam profiles has been a great challenge for the laser industry due to the nonlinearity of Q-switched lasers. Fotona’s StarWalker advanced Q-switched laser technology relies on groundbreaking solutions such as patented OPTOflex® and Vacuum Cell Technologies to produce almost perfectly homogeneous beam profiles.

Full-beam and fractional hand-pieces

The StarWalker’s full beam and fractional handpiece technology enables physicians to provide advanced solutions for a broad range of treatments.

Fractional hand-pieces harness the powerful photomechanical effect of the StarWalker into tightly focused arrays. These arrays contain concentrations of energy while the surrounding area remains unaffected by the laser light.

Third Generation ASP Technology

StarWalker® and its groundbreaking ASP (Adaptive Structured Pulse) technology represent a cosmic shift forward for the medical and aesthetic laser industry. This 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 technology to adapt the temporal structure of laser pulses to the bio-photonic dynamics of laser-tissue interaction.

Modulated Acoustics Q-Switched (MaQX) Laser System

Fotona’s StarWalker laser system features the entire range of super-short pulse technologies in a single, high performance solution. StarWalker’s patented MaQX pulse modalities produce powerful bursts of laser energy that photoacoustically break apart skin pigmentations into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.

Fotona Q-Switched Pulse Power

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.

Fourteen Laser Modalities

StarWalker features an extraordinary 14 laser modalities operating at 4 complementary laser wavelengths. Based on the ASP technology, StarWalker modes are tailored to the requirements of specific treatments, a feature that has not been possible with earlier technologies.

Four Laser Wavelengths

StarWalker delivers four laser wavelengths to cover the complete absorption spectrum of melanin,
oxyhemoglobin and water.
