February 2024 Special: Ends February 28th 2024

Laser tattoo removal has reached a new level with the Enlighten III® laser tattoo removal system, now recognized as the world's leading method for removing tattoos.

 Laser tattoo removal with the Cutera Enlighten III laser is an advanced, powerful and efficient method for removing unwanted ink. 

This laser is quite special because it uses two types of light (dual wavelengths of 532 and 1064 nm) and two different speeds (dual pulse widths of 2 nanoseconds and 750 picoseconds)

It came out after the world’s first 755nm PicoSure laser, which was a big deal in tattoo removal. The Enlighten laser is the first to combine both fast and super-fast (nanosecond and picosecond) technologies, and it has three unique laser light types (wavelengths of 532, 1064, and 670 nm). 

This makes it really good at removing ink particles of various sizes and types more efficiently and effectively than other methods.

The Enlighten III is known for its power and ability to clear all ink colors with fewer treatments compared to many other lasers in its class. 

When you look at tattoo removal lasers like Enlighten III versus PicoWay and Enlighten III versus PicoSure, the Enlighten stands out.

 It’s the first to offer both fast and super-fast laser systems with multiple wavelengths, leading the way in tattoo removal technology.

Enlighten III provides superior results with less discomfort. If you are considering tattoo removal, the Cutera Enlighten III should be your first choice.

Lasser Tattoo Removal & Cutera Enlighten III F.A.Q

How does Cutera Enlighten III laser tattoo removal work? ​

Tattoos comprise thousands of ink particles suspended in the skin. Normal human bioprocesses remove foreign particles from the skin, but tattoo particles are too big to be removed. With laser treatments, tattoo pigment particles are broken into smaller pieces that can be removed by human processes. Although clinical researchers first experimented with lasers on tattoos in the late 1960s, it wasn’t until the 1980s that lasers became a viable, safe method for tattoo removal.

What does successful laser tattoo removal depend on? ​

Successful laser tattoo removal depends on four important factors: 

1.Penetration: The laser light must go deep into the skin to reach the tattoo pigment. 

2.Absorption: The color of the laser light must be more highly absorbed by the tattoo pigment than the surrounding skin. Different tattoo pigments therefore require different laser colors. 

3.Duration: The laser pulse must be very quick (nanoseconds to picoseconds) so that the tattoo pigment is heated to fragmentation temperature before its heat can dissipate to the surrounding skin and cause burns or scarring.

4.Intensity: Each laser pulse must deliver enough energy to fragment the pigment. If not, no removal will take place. 

What are the advantages of the Cutera enlighten® III laser for laser tattoo removal?​

The Cutera Enlighten III laser can remove all ink colors on any skin type so in fewer treatments than traditional tattoo removal technologies. It is the market’s first triple wavelength and dual pulse duration laser platform.  In addition, Cutera enlighten III’s variable pulse durations (2 ns and 750 ps) enable a faster, more efficient clearance of pigmented lesions and tattoo ink, regardless of density. These factors mean that you will experience faster treatments, with less discomfort and very little downtime.

What are the Cutera enlighten® III laser's features?
  • Longer (2 nanoseconds) and shorter (750/660 picoseconds) pulse durations
  • Three fully-integrated laser wavelengths – 532 nm, 1064 nm & 670 nm
What is there to love about the Cutera enlighten® III laser?

This laser is loved by those with unwanted multi-coloured tattoos as well as those with dark skin tones. The reason for this is because the laser’s settings can be modified to deliver multiple types of light that different colours will respond best to. The end result is a safer, and easier way to get rid of unwanted tattoos on the body, and across skin tones. In one treatment, with one machine, we are able to pass over a coloured tattoo, reducing the time a patient is in session.

Other than laser tattoo removal, what else is the Cutera enlighten® III laser used for?

Other than tattoo removal, this laser can be used for:

Discoloured skin
Sun damage and sun spots
Freckles
Acne scars
Wrinkles

How many treatments of the enlighten® laser is required in order to achieve complete tattoo removal or skin rejuvenation results? ​

In terms of tattoo removal, the number of treatments for  with the enlighten® laser can vary quite a lot, as the number of treatments will depend on:

  • Skin tone
  • Depth of the ink in the skin
  • Type of tattoo 
  • Colour of the ink.

In terms of skin rejuvenation, you will require 2 – 4 treatments on average, though again, this depends on what is being treated, the intensity of the condition and your skin type.

What can I expect during a Cutera enlighten® III laser treatment?

Before we start your laser treatment, we apply a numbing cream on the treatment area. The laser process involves passing a handpiece over the tattoo or affected skin area. We stop and pulse the laser in small increments, until the entire treatment area has had an opportunity to absorb the laser light.

Pain can occur in some individuals, but it is relatively minimal, and the tolerance depends and varies between individuals. The sensation of the laser energy can be likened to snapping a rubber band on your skin with each pulse. The numbing cream helps to reduce this sensation.After treatment we cover the area with Polysporin®, to help the treatment area heal.

Is there any downtime with an enlighten® III laser treatment?

 After a enlighten III® laser session, there can be a healing time. The skin that had the laser pulses penetrated into it may turn red, and may also blister. For this reason, we ask that you use Polysporin® to aid the healing.

After your treatment, you  may cover the area with gauze if need be, though we do ask you to leave the treatment area open during healing if possible. However, when engaging in any activity that can cause infection (such as working in a dusty place, or spending time outdoors), we do ask that the area be covered. Of course, as with any cut or scrape, it is advisable to avoid swimming and sun exposure, or activities that can irritate the skin. You should be able to return to work, or go out in public, if you are comfortable. Generally speaking, it can take a few days for the skin irritation to subside.

What are the possible side effects of laser tattoo removal?

Side effects of Enlighten laser tattoo removal: You may notice some redness after treatment, and small blisters may appear after about 48 hours. Your skin will also peel away in small bits after a few days. Complete recovery may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location and size of the tattoo.

 

What To Expect

Tattoos are usually forever, but there are also times when it’s best to get rid of one.

For example, if you’re allergic to the tattoo ink, if the tattoo was done poorly and looks bad, or if you’ve had the tattoo for a while and it’s fading or you just don’t like it anymore, then removing it might be a good idea.

If you’re thinking about removing your tattoo, there are some important things to know. Here’s what happens when you go for a laser tattoo removal session at LMC – Laser Medical Clinic.

 

Before

The initial step in the tattoo removal journey is to meet with our experienced laser specialists. During this consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to share your specific objectives and concerns, allowing us to craft a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. The number of sessions required for your tattoo removal will depend on several factors, including its size, placement on your body, and the colors used.

It’s essential to understand that laser tattoo removal can be both a costly and time-consuming process. Therefore, before embarking on this journey, it’s crucial to be absolutely certain that you want to part ways with your tattoo.

Make sure you are committed to the removal process, as it may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.

This commitment ensures that you’ll be satisfied with the outcome and make the most of your investment in tattoo removal.

During

In each session of your tattoo removal treatment, our skilled laser specialist employs precise pulses of laser light to target the tattoo.

This intense light effectively breaks down the ink pigment particles within the tattoo, initiating a process where your body naturally absorbs and eventually eliminates these particles.

It’s important to note that you may encounter some level of discomfort during this procedure. However, please rest assured that our priority is your comfort and well-being. To make your experience as comfortable as possible, we provide a complimentary Cryoanesthesia option using our advanced Zimmer 6 cold air blower.

This innovative technology helps alleviate any discomfort, ensuring that you have a smoother and more comfortable tattoo removal journey. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities throughout the process.

After

After each tattoo removal treatment session, it’s crucial to take proper care of the treated area to ensure a successful outcome. Protecting the area from sun exposure is essential during the healing process.

Additionally, as your body gradually clears the ink pigment particles, you’ll witness your tattoo fading away, ultimately revealing clear and beautiful skin.

Our dedicated team will provide you with expert guidance and post-care instructions, which may include the use of a provided skin care ointment.

These instructions are designed to facilitate the healing process and maximize the effectiveness of your tattoo removal journey.
