Laser Tattoo Removal

Enlighten™ is a picosecond laser system that is effective and safe for the removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.

Enlighten™ has emerged as the premier solution for laser tattoo removal. Featuring dual pulse durations (2 ns + 750/660 ps) and three unique laser wavelengths (532, 1064, 670 nm),

Enlighten™ has the power to clear all ink colors, variable ink particle sizes and densities in fewer treatments.

Did your tattoo once seem attractive, but not so attractive today? Or is your tattoo a permanent reminder of what was just a temporary feeling? If so, you are not alone! That change of heart, or feeling of regret, is the #1 reason why people seek tattoo removal. Fortunately, de-inking has progressed from a so-so, time-consuming process to a much faster, safe and effective method. Finally, that unforgettable tattoo can become forgotten with the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available in the market— Enlighten™.

How Does Enlighten™ Differ From Other Tattoo Removal Options?

Enlighten™ features extremely short and high - power picosecond laser pulses which efficiently and quickly break down the ink particles in tattoos. A ‘picosecond’ is one-trillionth of a 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 lasers used historically in the past.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

The total number of treatments vary depending on the composition, depth and the color of the ink, as well as the size of the tattoo. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions, and your provider can give you a better idea of the total number of treatments needed during your consultation and once your treatments begin.

Will The Tattoo Completely Disappear?

In many cases, yes. However, it is very important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others. Schedule a consult with your Enlighten™ provider to determine if Enlighten™ is right for you.

Is The Procedure Painful?

Patients compare the procedure to a rubber band being snapped against their skin. Topical numbing and ice packs are available to minimize discomfort.

Are There Any Side Effects Following Treatment?

Most patients experience redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary. You will be provided with detailed post-care instructions to minimize the risk of adverse side effects.
