HOW DOES THE STARWALKER PICO LASER WORK?
The Fotona Starwalker PICOsecond laser is an US FDA award winning picolaser offering 3rd generation Picolaser technology in Singapore. The Starwalker MaQX is the ONLY PICOlaser in Singapore to have a hybrid Picosecond laser technology. Out of all Picosecond lasers, the Starwalker PQX model is the fastest Picosecond laser invented at time of writing with a short pulse duration of 300 picoseconds. The 1064nm wavelength targets brown and black pigments in all layers of the skin.
The Starwalker Pico laser is a non-ablative pigmentation laser that works in ultra-short pulse picosecond laser pulses instead of nanosecond pulses in a Q Switched Nd:Yag Laser, which means less photo-thermal effect (less heat). A pico laser also has higher photo-acoustic effect (more energy) compared to a Q Switched laser, which means that a picosecond laser shatters pigmentation into smaller fragments which are more easily removed by the body’s immune system.
The pico laser procedure is usually 15 to 20 minutes long, followed by a pampering facial cooling and recovery treatment. It causes minimal to no downtime depending on your skin type and allows for immediate use of makeup and return to normal activities.
