Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal

Offered at our convenient location in Portland, Oregon

The Cutera Enlighten Laser system features extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses which efficiently and quickly breaks down the ink particles in tattoos. A picosecond is one-trillionth of a second and is 1,000 times shorter than 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.

Before and After Photos

The Science Behind Enlighten Laser Treatment

The Enlighten system is designed with two combined lasers to effectively target tattoo ink.

Tattoos are comprised of colored inks, so the Enlighten technology uses multiple wavelengths to treat a wide variety of colors. Two wavelengths, 532 nm, 1064 nm, and are used to break apart specific colors and help reduce the visibility of the tattoo.

Regardless, if you are concerned about tattoos or pigmentation, an Enlighten laser procedure will transform your skin!

Skin Care Consultation

During your initial consultation, our Certified Advanced Esthetician will examine your skin and discuss your specific concerns. They will work directly with you to create a custom treatment plan to help achieve your specific goals, using the Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal.

During your personal consultation, we will ask about your concerns and examine the tattoo or skin imperfections. We will need to know about your skin care routine, past procedures, general health, allergies, and current medications to understand if Enlighten Laser is a healthy option for you. If Enlighten is not a healthy option, she will suggest alternative treatments that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Before you leave, the staff will determine the approximate number of treatments needed to achieve your best outcome.

She will walk you through how to prepare for the treatment and what recovery will look like. Together, you and she will schedule a treatment plan that will have you your best results in no time!

Recovery After Laser Treatment

Most patients experience redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. Slight blistering may sometimes occur. These side effects are temporary. Patients can return to regular activities immediately following the treatment.

Enlighten Laser Results

You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions.

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. Your provider can give you a better idea of the total number of treatments needed during your consultation and once your treatments begin.

Multiple sessions are required because 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, typically 8-12 weeks apart.

The timeline for final results will vary between patients.

By the third appointment, patients should be seeing significant improvement in the appearance of their tattoo or skin pigmentation. The results achieved are long-lasting. The ink or pigmentation has been removed and will not come back.
