Enlighten is the most advanced laser system for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.
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.
The total number of treatments varies, depending on the color, composition, depth and the color of the ink, as well as the size and location of the tattoo. Tattoo ink is deposited deep in the skin. In order to reach all of the ink in the skin, multiple treatment sessions are needed for clearance. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions, spaced eight weeks apart. Depth, size and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed. Your PICO laser provider will discuss a treatment plan during your complimentary consultation.
Anyone! If you have an unwanted tattoo, you are a candidate. PICO Laser Tattoo Removal is safe on all skin types and ink colors.
