Biltmore Restorative Medicine & Aesthetics is thrilled to announce their newest aesthetic treatment: Enlighten laser tattoo removal, by Cutera! This state of the art laser removes tattoos on any skin tone with ease, and it’s powerful laser requires far fewer treatments to achieve your desired results.
So what makes Enlighten such a remarkable machine? Enlighten is the only laser system that combines both nano and picosecond technology, to effectively remove any ink color from all skin tones. Enlighten features extremely short, high-power picosecond laser pulses that break down the ink particles in tattoos. A ‘picosecond’ is one-trillionth of second, and is 1,000 times shorter than the ‘nanosecond’ pulses used in existing lasers for tattoo.
This laser is so much more powerful and effective, that in most cases it dramatically reduces the number of removal sessions needed. Clients who have tried other lasers can need up to 20+ sessions, but with Enlighten, tattoos can be removed in as few as 2-3 treatments.
Like all tattoo removal, discomfort and actual treatment sessions vary based on the depth, color, size, and age of the tattoo; but most clients feel virtually no pain and compare the Enlighten tattoo removal sensation to a rubber band being snapped on their skin. For tattoos located in sensitive areas, physician monitored local anesthetic is always available for clients who prefer to feel little or no pain.
What is the downtime after this procedure? Most clients experience some temporary redness in the affected area but can resume daily activities directly after their tattoo removal session.
Enlighten does more than just tattoo removal. It can also eliminate almost any brown pigmented areas. The “picco genesis” treatments gently decrease or remove areas of pigment such as sunspots while rejuvenating the skin.
