Understanding the Science

Tattoo removal with the Enlighten system relies on advanced laser technology, utilizing both picosecond and nanosecond laser pulses to break down tattoo ink particles. The ultra-short picosecond pulses shatter the ink into tiny fragments, while the longer nanosecond pulses further reduce these particles. The body’s lymphatic system then gradually eliminates these smaller ink fragments, leading to the gradual fading and eventual removal of the tattoo.  This precise and efficient process minimizes damage to the surrounding skin, making Enlighten an effective solution for tattoo removal.

Selective Photothermolysis:

The basic principle behind laser tattoo removal is selective photothermolysis, which means using a specific wavelength of light to target and heat up certain tissues without affecting the surrounding skin. In the case of tattoo removal, the laser targets the ink particles in the skin, causing them to break down and be absorbed by the body’s immune system.

How It Works:

The Cutera Enlighten system is unique in that it utilizes both nanosecond and picosecond pulse durations. The nanosecond pulses are longer and slower, creating a heat shock that breaks up larger ink particles into smaller pieces. The picosecond pulses are shorter and faster, creating a photoacoustic effect that breaks down the smaller ink particles into even smaller fragments.

Once the ink particles are broken down, the body’s immune system comes into play. The fragmented ink particles are then recognized as foreign substances by the immune system, which sends specialized cells to the area to remove them from the body. This process can take several weeks or months, during which time the tattoo gradually fades.

Outcome:

Tattoo removal results vary depending on factors like tattoo size, color, age, and skin type. Typically, multiple sessions with the Enlighten system can significantly fade or remove tattoos, with reduced scarring compared to older methods. Clients can expect progressive lightening and, in many cases, complete tattoo removal over time, leading to clearer, rejuvenated skin.
