How does Enlighten laser tattoo removal work?
Our enlighten™ laser 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 laser used historically in the past.
How many treatment sessions are required?
The total number of treatments vary depending on the composition, depth and the color of the ink, as well as the size of the tattoo. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions, and your provider can give you a better idea of the total number of treatments needed during your consultation and once your treatments begin.
Why are multiple sessions required?
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. Depth, size and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed.
Will the tattoo disappear completely?
In many cases, yes. However, it is very important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others. Consult with your enlighten provider to determine if enlighten is right for you.
Are there any side effects following the treatment?
Most patients experience redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary.
Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?
Patients can return to regular activities immediately following the treatment.
