Do I Need Treatment With enlighten® by CUTERA®?

Many people choose to get tattoos without thinking about how they might feel about their ink later in life. Whether you wish to remove a tattoo that reminds you of something or someone that is no longer important in your life or you are trying to branch into a new field of employment, the enlighten® laser may be an option for you.

The enlighten® treatment is the most effective product of its type on the market and can permanently remove tattoos for patients with all skin types. In addition to tattoo removal, the enlighten® can address skin lesions and pigmentation irregularities, such as brown spots, acne scars, and benign lesions.

How Are enlighten® by CUTERA® Treatments Performed?

The enlighten® laser by CUTERA® is the first system to combine both nanosecond and picosecond pulse durations. This system provides effective and efficient removal of unwanted ink and other pigment irregularities.

By delivering bursts of both high-peak-power and ultra-short pulses, the targeted pigment shatters without causing any thermal damage to the surrounding tissue.

What Is My enlighten® by CUTERA® Recovery Like?

While you will not experience any real “downtime” following your enlighten® treatment, you may experience some swelling and discomfort in the hours and days after the treatment. This treatment results in dermal inflammation that initiates a healing response associated with increased collagen and elastin formation.

What Results Can I Expect From enlighten® by CUTERA®?

Some tattoo removal lasers require up to 15 treatment sessions to achieve the removal of the ink, and often, results are unpredictable. With enlighten®, you can enjoy your tattoo-free skin sooner with fewer sessions.

Individuals who choose enlighten® to treat skin lesions or pigmentation irregularities will start to see their results soon after the treatment, and these results will continue to improve as collagen and elastin are produced.
