Fortona-Qx-Max Machine for Pigmentation & Patchy Skin Treatment

Q-Switched Laser for Pigmentation



Almost everyone has a pigmented lesion of some type. These areas of the skin contain especially high concentrations of melanin and are typically caused by an excess of pigment commonly caused by sun exposure, ageing, hormones or you may be born with the condition. The Fotona QX Max is the safest and most powerful Q-Switched laser system in the world and uses multiple wavelengths to treat a wide range of Epidermal, Dermal and mixed Dermal- Epidermal Pigmented Lesions.


Epidermal Lesions: 

Age Spots, Sun Spots, Freckles, Café- au-lait Macules (pigmented birth marks)

Dermal- Epidermal Lesions:

Melasma, Melanocytic Nevi (only if treatment is suitable)

Dermal Lesions:

Nevus of Ota (hyperpigmentation around the eye region), Nevus of Ito (hyperpigmentation on the body)


The Fotona QX Max is also used for effective and efficient Laser Tattoo Removal.



How are pigmented lesions removed?

The Fotona Q-Switched Laser uses specific wavelengths of light which are absorbed by the abnormal pigment in the skin at a very fast rate. This rapid absorption of light energy causes the reduction in abnormal pigment cells and depending on the type of pigmentation, it will slowly fade or slough off the surface of the skin, leaving the treated skin looking uniform in color and texture.

Does it hurt?

The treatment feels like the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. We provide prescription topical compound anaesthetic and cold air to mitigate any discomfort.
