ENLIGHTEN TATTOO REMOVAL
Laser tattoo removal is often safer and more effective than other tattoo removal treatments, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or excision. Lasers can penetrate to deeper layers of the skin without damaging surrounding tissue.
While most laser tattoo removal systems are most effective on black and dark blue pigments, other colors are not so easy to remove. At Defyne Med Spa, we use the Cutera enlighten™ system, which offers the most precision and versatility in tattoo removal treatments. This dual-frequency picosecond and nanosecond laser breaks up tattoo pigments faster and in fewer sessions than with other treatments. The lightning fast picosecond pulses cause less pain than other treatments. Dual frequencies allow us to match the wavelengths to different pigments to treat all of the most common tattoo colors. Because of a shorter pulse time and less energy use, there is no destruction of the surrounding tissue. This treatment is effective on most skin tones.
After each session, your body will gradually break down and remove the pigment, leaving you with natural looking, more uniform skin. While some patients see immediate results, most patients will need a series of 3-6 treatments spaced at least 3 weeks apart.
