Why Enlighten Laser Is the Best for Tattoo Removal
When individuals decide to undergo laser tattoo removal, effectiveness and efficiency are top concerns. In addition, patients hope to minimize pain, reduce costs, and maximize safety.
Until now, Q-Switch lasers were the standard of care for tattoo removal, and they’ve been unable to achieve a high rate of patient satisfaction.
Fortunately, the Enlighten laser can produce better results, with quicker treatment times, and fewer sessions.
Here’s why Enlighten is the best laser for tattoo removal.
What Is Enlighten Laser?
Enlighten uses extremely short and powerful picosecond pulses that deliver laser energy at a speed of one trillionth of a second to shatter tattoo pigment into tiny particles.
This device functions at a rate 1000 times faster than Q-Switch lasers, which operate with nanotechnology and deliver energy at a speed of one billionth of a second.
How Does Enlighten Work?
Lasers target unwanted tattoos by breaking apart ink, which is then absorbed to the tissue and removed from the body by the lymphatic system.
Because of its speed, Enlighten creates rapid thermal expansion that destroys pigment with greater precision and eliminates remnants more quickly.
This device also allows for treatment customization, as the provider selects from a 1064 nm or 532 nm wavelength, determines the appropriate spot size, sets the energy, and chooses from a pulse duration of 750 picoseconds or 2000 picoseconds.
Advantages of Enlighten Compared to Other Technology for Tattoo Removal
Enlighten’s unique technology allows it to significantly reduce treatment time, which lessens patient pain and discomfort.
Other lasers can require between eight-to-13 sessions. However, depending on the color, size, and location of the tattoo, Enlighten may be able to decrease the number of sessions by half.
Additionally, by delivering faster pulses with less heat, Enlighten is better able to target the tattoo and protect the surrounding tissue. As a result, it lowers a patient’s risk for scarring.
