Cutera Enlighten

Cutera Enlighten

The Cutera enlighten is a revolutionary new skin laser system that is used to reduce the appearance of unwanted tattoos and benign skin lesions using the power of Pico Technology.

The enlighten system is the first to feature picosecond and nanosecond pulse durations as well as the ideal wavelengths, spot sizes and energy levels, creating the perfect blend of parameters to target a variety of tattoos as well as general skin pigmentation.

The laser’s non-thermal, photomechanical effect paired with ultra-short pulse durations makes it possible to shatter pigments in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue, making it an ideal treatment for even the most challenging skin concerns.

PICO Genesis

Along with tattoo removal, PICO Genesis treatments can also be used to revitalise the skin by disrupting the dermis and encouraging natural collagen production, regenerating the skin in fewer sessions than traditional laser technology.

PICO Genesis FX

PICO Genesis FX treatments combine the enlighten’s non-thermal picosecond pulses with a Micro Lens Array, allowing patients to target additional skin concerns such as pigmentation, acne scars and wrinkles too.

Cutera Enlighten for Tattoo Removal

A large percentage of people experience tattoo regret and the enlighten system has fast become the most effective treatment for unwanted body art.

Tattoos are generally made up of several different colours, which means multiple wavelengths are required to effectively remove the various pigments – this is where the Cutera enlighten laser comes in.

The colour pigments of the tattoo are targeted using three different laser wavelengths (532 nm, 1064 nm and 670 nm). Once the pigmented cells absorb the heat from the laser, they shatter and are either eliminated through the skin or absorbed by the body. As the tattoo’s pigments are reduced over several treatments, the appearance of the tattoo will slowly fade.

All tattoos and skin tones can be treated using the enlighten system with a minimal risk of scarring – multiple treatments will be required to completely remove a tattoo though. The number of treatments required will depend on the size and placement of the tattoo as well as the colours and the depth of the ink.

Why the Cutera Enlighten is the Preferred Choice for Tattoo Removal

  • Addresses Deeper Levels of Pigmentation. Professional tattoo artists deposit ink into different levels of the dermis during the tattooing process. The enlighten is the only skin laser system that is able to work at varying depths, while targeting a full spectrum of colours. It is also the only laser system that’s suitable for all skin types.
  • Fewer Treatments are Required. The enlighten system is shown to require 40% fewer treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal systems. Fewer treatments result in lower costs and reduced recovery times, however, the number of treatments required will vary between patients.
  • Pain is Minimised. The majority of patients who’ve undergone tattoo removal treatments using the Cutera enlighten have reported it to be far less painful than traditional skin laser systems, which is another reason why it’s the preferred choice.
