StarWalker Fotona


Utilising the very latest Fotona Starwalker laser system we’re proud to offer better-than-ever tattoo removals with minimal discomfort and no trace left at the end of your course. There can be all kinds of reasons for wanting to get rid of a tattoo; maybe it was an idea you always regretted, maybe it’s getting old and blurred or maybe that forever relationship didn’t turn out to be forever! Whatever your reasons, laser tattoo removal is an incredible use of technology to make those tattoos literally disappear.

Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tools for effectively removing complex and multi-colored tattoos. Multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser systems with frequency-doubled KTP are uniquely able to produce very short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of skin to be selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments.

Highest Energy for Maximum Effectiveness

Fotona's Q-Switched laser technology generates high-energy nanosecond pulses that are efficient at removing many types of tattoos. By using larger spot sizes at very high energy, deeper-lying pigmented structures can be reached and removed, and laser treatment efficacy and efficiency in a single session are significantly enhanced.

Different Wavelengths for Multicolored Tattoos

Fotona's Q-Switched lasers offer four wavelengths in one system – enabling treatments for virtually all commonly used pigment colors. Extremely short energy pulses cause tattoo pigments to break into smaller particles, which are then removed by the body's own immune system. Most tattoo procedures take only a few minutes, but several treatments are typically needed to completely remove a tattoo. Three-week intervals between sessions are required to allow pigment residue to be cleared by the body.

Patented Technology for Safer & More Precise Treatments

Homogeneity of a laser beam profile ensures greater safety during treatments since laser energy is evenly distributed across the treated area. Epidermal damage is minimized and the risk of bleeding, tissue splatter and transient textural changes in the skin is decreased. Fotona’s advanced Q-switched laser technology relies on groundbreaking solutions such as patented OPTOflex® and Vacuum Cell Technologies to produce an almost perfectly homogeneous beam profile, resulting in safer and more effective treatments for your patients.

Tattoo removal treatments can be best performed with the following Fotona laser system:

StarWalker – StarWalker’s MaQX peak energy, four colors and proprietary FracTAT® procedure make StarWalker an industry-leading, ultra-performance laser-tattoo-removal system.

In addition to variable wavelengths it also offers the ability to vary the focal spot size; delivering more or less energy as required to minimise discomfort and maximise effectiveness. The Fotona Starwalker System is so accurate it can even be used to erase just a certain part of a tattoo; take that name off the love heart scroll and add a new one with the rest of the artwork untouched, our service provides whatever you want. In addition to the Fotona Starwalker laser, we also utilise a Zimmer Cryo Chiller unit.  Used before, during and after treatment the chiller blows cooled air at -35 onto the treatment area which helps reduce any discomfort.

You can read on about how the system works, or pick up the phone and contact us today to speak to one of our knowledgeable team and arrange a full consultation.   We can tell you in detail about what to expect, and give you an accurate estimate of how much work your tattoo would need; we look forward to hearing from you!
