Fotona’s StarWalker laser system are the perfect tool for treating a wide range of pigmented lesions, enabling treatments for everything from nevi (moles) and vascular lesions to ephelides, sunspots and melasma. Superficial lesions can be treated most effectively to target deeper lesions.
For a difficult-to-treat condition such as melasma, Fotona lasers are especially effective due to the selectivity of Q-switched light, enabling it to break apart pigments only and not cells. This means that pigment destruction can take place without ablating the skin – a unique feature that also allows other treatment possibilities, such as the safe and effective removal of complex, multi-colored tattoos.
In addition, lasers can also be used for the ablation of keratoses, moles, and other pigmented lesions, enabling the removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled and relatively bloodless manner. Clinical studies have shown that lasers are very effective for the treatment of keratoses, with a clinical and histological improvement of up to 93% after just one treatment.
