QX Max

Fotona's QX MAX laser system - An advanced Q switched nanosecond laser

The Fotona QX Max is a perfect blend of laser with the power, specification and wavelengths to remove all common pigment and ink as well as technology to offer a range of aesthetic treatments. It is the perfect blend of innovation and performance.

Some of the treatments the Fotona QX max can offer are:

  • Full-colour tattoo removal
  • Pigmentation removal
  • Vascular lesions 
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Hair removal

Multiple wavelengths

To remove a pigment or an ink you must first have the correct wavelength. Different colours are target by different wavelengths sio it is important to have a wide range. 

The Fotona QX max offers 4 different wavelengths for optimal pigmented and ink removal 

  • 1064 nm Nd:YAG to treat and remove dark pigments
  • 532 nm KTP for lighter pigments, vascular lesions and red, tan, purple and orange tattoo inks
  • 650 nm dye for green tattoo inks
  • 585 nm dye for sky blue inks and vascular lesions

Fotona's Accelera Pulse

Fotona's Accelera pulse technology generates sub-millisecond pulse-widths to provide minimally invasive skin rejuvenation and many other popular non-ablative aesthetic treatments.

Beam Profile

A homogeneous beam is paramount to ensure safety of laser treatments so that energy is evenly distributed across the treatment area and during the whole span of the laser width. This homogeneous beam delivery results in no hot-spots and less chance of bleeding or scarring occurring. Fotona's Vacuum Cell and OPTOflex technologies produces almost perfectly homogeneous beam profile.

OPTOFLEX is specifically designed to transmit Q-switched laser light with minimal loss of energy. 

VACUUM Cell is included within the OPTOflex arm to create perfectly uniform laser spots. This avoids the "ringed effect" that standard Q-switched technologies produce. Because the laser power is not concentrated in one area within the laser spot, the risk of unwanted side effects and skin damage is minimised.

Safety and Precision

EFC (Energy Feedback Control) technology is a core safety feature which actively monitors each individual pulse’s energy level to ensure that the output energy is exactly matched to the what is been displayed on the screen. 


QX MAX key features

  • 1.6 J single-pulse energy maximum energy
  • Large spot sizes
  • Uniform beam profile
  • Vacuum Cell Technology.
  • OPTOflex® arm 
  • Wide range of treatments including FRAC3®.


The Fotona QX MAX’s boasts high energy upto 1.6 joules in a single pulse and 5ns pulses for high peak power allowing you to use large spot sizes for deep lying pigment and ink removal. 

A single pulse is not affected by the optical shielding (the frosting that appears from a high energy pulse after it hits a pigment). This means deep pigmented can be targeted and removed by high energy single pulses. The larger the spot size the less fluence required and less risk of side effects. 

The new R-HX handpiece produces a completely flat laser beam profile that is hexagonal in shape to allow for more precise and uniform coverage. With R-HX, empty space between the spots and undesirable overlapping can be avoided. This ensures greater efficacy and superior clinical results



The Fotona QX MAX laser flashlamp is equipped with Vacuum Cell and OPTOflex technology. This is where the flash lamp is only activated when the laser is actually fires. This Causes a much lower burden on the laser and results in longer laser lamp lifespan and lower maintenance costs. 

Handpieces available with the Fotona QX MAX are

R28 - Titanium smart-control handpiece with auto spot recognition between 2 and 8mm. Can be used with both 1064nm and 532nm laser sources. 

R585 Titanium smart-control handpiece with auto spot recognition between 2 and 4mm. This is an optional Dye handpiece changing the wavelength to 585nm for the removal of sky blue colours.

R650 - Titanium smart-control handpiece with auto spot recognition between 2 and 4mm. This is an optional Dye handpiece changing the wavelength to 650nm for the removal of green colours.
