Laser Tattoo Removal with Enlighten Laser by Cutera
The Enlighten laser is unique because it offers extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses which break down the ink particles in tattoos so that the body can absorb and remove the ink. A ‘picosecond’ is one-trillionth of second, and is 1,000 times shorter than the ‘nanosecond’ pulses used in existing lasers for tattoo removal. Picosecond laser pulses have been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions than traditional laser treatments. The Enlighten laser is a safe and effective treatment option for all skin types. Tattoo ink varies widely in color, age, and depth. In most cases, multiple treatment sessions are needed for complete removal. While most tattoos can be entirely removed with enough treatments, it is important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others.
