PICO GENESIS TATTOO REMOVAL
Who said that tattoos are designed to last forever? Thanks to the revolutionary advancements in laser technology, enlightenTM will quickly rid you of what you would like to forget.
Did your tattoo seem attractive in your 20s but now so much today? Or is your tattoo a permanent reminder of what was just a temporary feeling? If so, you are not alone! That change of heart, or feeling of regret, is the #1 reason why people seek tattoo removal.
Fortunately, de-inking has progressed from a so-so, time-consuming process to a much faster, safe and effective method. Finally, that unforgettable tattoo can become forgotten with the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available in the market - enlightenTM.
WHAT IS ENLIGHTEN?
enlightenTM is the most advanced laser system for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and benign pigmentation lesions.
HOW DOES ENLIGHTEN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL DIFFER FROM OTHER LASTER TATTOO REMOVAL OPTIONS?
enlighten features extremely short and high-powered picosesond laser pulses which efficiently and quickly break down the link particles in tattoos. A 'picosecond' is one-trillionth of a second, and is 1,000 times shorter that the 'nanosecond' pulses used in existing lasers tattoo removal. Picosecond laser pulses have been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions thatn traditional laser used historically in the past.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS 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 treatment 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 COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR?
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.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Patients compare the procedure to a rubber band being snapped against their skin. Topical or local anaesthetics may be available from your provider to minimize the discomfort.
ARE THER 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.
Pigment Comes In All Forms
Tattoo inks. Pigmented lesions. Skin tone irregularities. Each of these pigments have their own unique characteristics. With enlightenTM you have the power to address each type of pigment based on its color and its depth, selectively destroying them safely and effectively.
Selectively Targeting Colors
Tattoos are pigment particles distributed throughout the dermis. The particle sizes ranges from 2 nm to 400 nm with smaller particles grouped into larger particles measuring 0.5 um to 0.4 um2. Selective destruction and elimination of tattoo particles largely depends on two parameters.
1. laser wavelength which should match the maximum absorption of the tattoo particle (figure 1)
2. pulse duration which is optimized based on the particle size
As tattoo ink particles absorb the laser energy, the are fragmented and the ce3lls containing the pigment are eliminated. CUTERA understands what is needed to destroy the particles based on color, size and depth - enlighten gives you the power to achieve better outcomes using a wide range of wavelengths, energy and pulse durations matched to the varying characteristics of each particle.
