The US FDA approved, award winning, most powerful Fotona PICOsecond laser.

The StarWalker® PICO pigment laser is the most advanced and highest performance StarWalker model. It uses a directed beam of laser at 1064nm wavelength to treat blemishes on the skin such as birthmarks, old acne scars, unwanted tattoos and enlarged pores.

What can it be used for?

This laser is most popular because it treats many concerns with relatively low downtime. Redness after this procedure typically lasts for only an hour or less.

It can be used for:

  • Melasma
  • Freckles
  • Solar lentigenes, Hori’s nevus and other types of pigmentation
  • Overall skin brightening
  • Treatment of active acne and old acne marks
  • Unwanted tattoo removal
  • Shrinking of pores and decreasing of oil secretion

How does it work?

The Fotona Starwalker PICOsecond laser is an US FDA award winning picolaser offering 3rd generation Picolaser technology. The Starwalker MaQX is the ONLY PICOlaser to have a hybrid Picosecond laser technology. The Starwalker PQX model is the fastest Picosecond laser invented at time of writing with a pulse duration of 300 picoseconds. The 1064nm wavelength targets brown and black pigments in all layers of the skin.

The Starwalker Pico is a non-ablative pigment laser that works in ultra-short 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), which means that a picosecond laser shatters pigmentation into smaller fragments which are more easily removed by the body’s immune system.

The 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.

What is the Starwalker difference?

  • US FDA and award winning PicoLaser
  • 3rd generation ASP technology and the ONLY hybrid picosecond laser
  • First-in-its-class combination of picosecond pulse power and high energy of nanosecond pulses – ensuring greatest effects in shortest possible time
  • FracPICO technology is a game-changer for resurfacing of wrinkles and scars.
  • Four Picosecond Wavelengths for One Purpose – Flawless Skin
  • Fotona Starwalker has the most versatility amongst Pico lasers in treating stubborn pigmentation with 4 Picosecond wavelengths (532nm, 585nm, 650nm and 1064nm).

Why VERITAS?

Pigmentation is an especially troublesome problem in Asians and people with coloured skin. A wrong laser technique can worsen pigmentation and cause long term scarring. Hence, even with the most powerful technology, proper techniques and precise settings are required. Most treatment centres will tell you that pigmentation can only improve and cannot be cured, this is an inaccurate falsehood. With proper treatment protocols, all types of skin pigmentation (including melasma) can be cured.

VERITAS is a pioneer clinic in Singapore to use the powerful Fotona Starwalker and also the Fotona SP Dynamis. Our founder is currently the only Singaporean LAHA international expert lecturer, and has given talks to local and international doctors on various skin conditions, contributing actively to international clinical publications. Our team of doctors have lectured at the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM) as well as the National Surgical ATLS team.

VERITAS Medical is frequently used as a local and international training centre for various laser, medical devices and also injectable filler/botox/threadlift procedures. Our team of doctors specialise in laser and skin treatments with full accreditation by the Singapore Medical Council. Our various post-graduate qualifications in MRCS (Membership of Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh) and GDFM (Graduate Diploma in Family Medicine) reflect the expertise of our doctors and our commitment to our patients’ safety and results. This medical expertise ensures the treatments offered in the clinic are firmly grounded on solid science.

Aesthetic medicine is more than a precise science, it is also an intricate art. As avid photographers and musicians, our doctors try to balance the science with the art with every patient that we see, and bring out the best in each individual. In fact, the clinic is decorated to reflect our artistic hobbies, with portrait photographs that show individuals at the pinnacle of their craft. These large photographs ultimately portray that our core business is about the craft and also about each individual human being. We have been on many media features such as HerWorld, Prestige, NuYou and etc, as well as contributing regularly to medical sites like DoctorXDentist and HealthAscent.

FAQs

Each unique patient/condition requires a different treatment protocol. Results are typically seen from the first session but can take 3 to 6 sessions to give optimal results.

This laser just feels like many small taps on the skin and is generally very tolerable. We use Zimmer air cooler technology to maximise comfort.

It causes minimal to no downtime depending on your skin type and allows for immediate use of make up and return to normal activities.

Sunblock is essential after laser. Depending on your condition or skin type, we may recommend you different proprietary post-care creams as well for optimal results. This is not compulsory but ensures a tailored treatment.

It is safe as the Starwalker laser does not break the skin surface and needs no healing.

The Starwalker is first-of-its-class technology with no other precedent. It is a combination of both technologies with both its advantages.

Compared to Q-switch lasers: The Starwalker uses multiple picosecond pulses within its nanosecond pulse wave to deliver less painful and less risky treatments.

Compared to PICO lasers: The Starwalker has a much higher pulse energy and hence faster and more effective results.

Certain mass market clinic chains offer daily laser regimes. These lasers are usually simple Q-switched lasers and cannot be compared to the Starwalker. The laser protocols were developed by businessmen rather than doctors and do not hold in regard the proper techniques and expertise needed for proper laser treatments.

Laser treatments are not a toy and should be properly performed with pre-treatment and post-treatment phases. Proper laser treatments seldom require anything more frequent than a biweekly treatment schedule.

They are usually a one-size fit all treatment where doctors have no time to discuss your individualised condition in depth.

These treatments are potentially dangerous as seen in these cases of mottled skin noted by dermatologists in the National Skin Centre: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4695430/
