Easy Laser Tattoo Removal

If you've ever regretted a tattoo, you might have looked up how to get rid of it--and found out that laser tattoo removal can be quite the painful process.

If this stopped you from getting rid of that college dare, then the innovative new laser, Enlighten, might be of interest to you.

What's Enlighten and What Makes It Different From Other Lasers on the Market?

Enlighten is a new laser technology that uses dual wavelength and dual pulse technology to get rid of tattoo pigmentation.

What's that mean? Essentially, think of pigments as picky responders. Some wavelengths work better for getting rid of some pigments, and some work better for others.

When we have to compromise and choose just one wavelength, we're left with a result that's not fully satisfying. But by using 1064 and 532 nm in conjunction, we can fully target the different colored particles of a tattoo.

Meanwhile the dual pulse laser allows flexibility in the length of the laser pulse. Why do we pulse lasers? Essentially, to achieve rapid energy delivery and minimize unintentional damage.

Consider a laser that outputs continuously--even if it's putting out less energy in any instant, because it's continuous it's ultimately using more energy.

But by using a pulse as short as a picosecond, we can send an incredible amount of energy in a short time--and heat the tattoo so rapidly that the pigment breaks into smaller and more manageable particles. Think of it this way: the Enlighten laser heats up the skin in a thousandth of the time of a traditional laser that works in the realm of nanoseconds rather than picoseconds.

The end result is a faster, more effective, and less painful treatment overall. It even takes less treatment sessions.

At Carelife Style, we use all of the latest technological innovations to offer safe, pain-free, and effective tattoo removal options. Using Enlighten, we can remove tattoos with a variety of ink colors in half the time it would take with traditional laser tattoo removal.

We work hard to ensure each client has a customized tattoo removal plan that works for them.

Tattoo removal has become one of today’s most popular aesthetic treatments. According to a 2016 Harris Poll, 1 in 4 adults has at least one tattoo. In a separate study commissioned by Cutera, 1 in 4 respondents with tattoos experienced tattoo regret.

Tattoo Removal MarketWith a growing number of individuals experiencing tattoo regret, the tattoo removal market has also increased. By 2023, the laser tattoo removal market is expected to grow 12.7% annually.

New, advanced laser tattoo removal technology has made it possible for providers to remove unwanted tattoos more efficiently and effectively than traditional tattoo removal methods. However, challenges such as ink particle size, tattoo color, depth of ink particles, tattoo age and location all play a role in the speed of clearance and the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results.

Cutera Tattoo Removal Technology*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.

In addition to laser tattoo removal, enlighten’s versatile technology and broad range of specifications enable providers to remove unwanted pigmented lesions and address skin revitalization concerns – making this an essential multi-application platform suited for any practice.

Powerfully Versatile Pico Technology

Tattoo and pigment removal is an essential part of every aesthetic practice. With a growing number of individuals experiencing tattoo regret, the market is expected to hit a year over year growth of 12.7% through 2023. 1 Also, 40% of the population susceptible to pigmentary concerns and 71% of consumers are seeking tone and texture improvement.2

The enlighten system is an industry-leading platform for tattoo removal and benign pigmented lesions. It is the first system on the market to feature both nanosecond and picosecond pulse durations and the ideal blend of parameters – the correct wavelengths, the correct spot sizes, and the correct energy levels – to effectively address unwanted pigment and ink.

High peak power, variable pulse durations

enlighten features longer (2 nanoseconds) and shorter (750/660 picoseconds) pulse durations in one system. This functionality gives you efficient, effective removal of ink and pigment density. Also, enlighten offers a strong, non-thermal, photomechanical effect with high-peak power and the ultra-short pulse durations that shatter the targeted pigment without causing thermal damage to the tissue that surrounds it.2 This makes it an ideal solution for treatment of challenging skin and optimizes our signature skin revitalization treatment – PICO Genesis.

Leveraging PICO + NANO Pulses with enlighten

Matching pulse duration to ink particle size = more complete and faster clearance is achieved

Multi-Wavelength Solution

Multi length duration

Tattoos and pigment are comprised of multi-colors which require multiple wavelengths to remove effectively. The enlighten features three fully-integrated laser wavelengths – 532 nm, 1064 nm and 670 nm – the first true red wavelength in the picosecond domain. The unique 670 nm wavelength shatters congenital or resistant pigmentary conditions and addresses challenging blue and green tattoos.

Pico Genesis

Unlike conventional laser toning that requires up to 15 treatment sessions and often leads to unpredictable results, PICO Genesis harnesses the power and flexibility of enlighten SR combined with its technical benefits in a dual-delivery procedure to selectively shatter pigment and induce dermal disruption and remodeling for true skin revitalization in fewer than three sessions.
