Quickly Erase What You Would Like to Forget
With Laser Tattoo Removal
What is Enlighten?
Enlighten™ is the most advanced laser system for safe and effective tattoo removal and benign pigmented issues.
How does Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal Differ from Other Laser 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 lasers currently utilize for tattoo removal. Picosecond laser pulses are clinically proven to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions than traditional laser methods.
How Many Treatment Sessions Are Required?
The total number of treatments varies depending on the composition, depth, and color of the ink, as well as the size of your tattoo. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions. During your free consultation and initial treatment, your Skin MD practitioner will determine with you the number of treatments needed for optimal results.
Why are Multiple Sessions Required?
Tattoo ink is deposited deep into the skin. In order to reach all of the ink, multiple treatment sessions are needed for clearance. The depth, size, and color of the tattoo will also affect the number of treatments needed.
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. Consult with the experts at Skin MD to determine if enlighten is right for you.
What Does the Procedure Feel Like?
Patients compare Enlighten™ to a rubber band being snapped against their skin. Topical or local anesthetics are available to minimize any discomfort.
Are there any Side Effects Following the Treatment?
Most patients experience redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. However, these effects will clear a few hours after treatment.
Is there any Downtime Associated with the Treatment?
Enlighten™ has no downtime; patients can return to their daily routine directly after treatment.
