Fotona’s QX MAX Q-Switched laser technology generates single nanosecond pulses, which are more efficient at removing pigment than multiple-pulse technologies of equivalently high power. Single pulses are not affected by the optical shielding phenomenon arising from pigment destruction. Consequently more and deeper lying structures can be reached and removed, and laser treatment efficacy and efficiency in a single session are significantly greater.
Fotona’s QX MAX laser system offers four wavelengths in one system, enabling treatments for virtually all commonly used pigment colors. The QX MAX transmits extremely short energy pulses that cause tattoo pigments to break into smaller particles that are then removed by the body’s own immune system. Most tattoo procedures take only a few minutes, but several treatments are typically necessary to completely remove a tattoo. Three-week intervals between sessions are required to allow pigment residue to be cleared by the body.
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.
