How the Cutera Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal System Can Help You Erase Past Bad Decisions
“The Cutera Enlighten platform has been a game changer in the world of laser tattoo removal,” states Angie Pennington, licensed laser technician and medical aesthetician at Sanova Dermatology – Central Austin and Dripping Springs in Austin, Texas. “I feel much more confident that I can deliver the results my patients want with this technology,” she continues.
The personal reasons to get a tattoo are as varied as the tattoos that people get. Commemorating a special loved one, a special life event, allegiance to a fandom, cause, band, or public figure, or simply because it’s an image or artwork with special meaning to you.
Regardless of why you get a tattoo, all tattoos generally seem like a good idea at the time. Unfortunately, what seemed like a good idea in your twenties may not seem like such a good idea in your thirties and beyond. And a tattoo that was once a source of great personal pride can, over time, become a sense of embarrassment or even shame.
As many as 14 percent of all Americans, or 45 million people, have one or more tattoos. Nearly half of all millennials have one or more tattoos, which can add up to quite a bit of buyer’s remorse for what has traditionally been considered a permanent reminder of your past.
“Fortunately, tattoos do not have to be a permanent reminder of past bad decisions,” Pennington explains. Laser tattoo removal is a great option and does not have to be a long, drawn-out — and for many, largely unsuccessful — procedure.
Recent technological innovations by Cutera, a leader in aesthetic laser treatment technology, has resulted in the creation of the most advanced laser tattoo removal system currently available.
“Dual wavelength + dual pulse duration is a cutting edge device that can treat multiple ink colors on all skin tones,” explains Pennington. Cutera’s new Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal System offers patients a fast, safe, effective tattoo removal process that is unmatched by any competing laser tattoo removal options. Enlighten’s special laser offers removal speeds literally a thousand times faster than traditional laser tattoo removal. Enlighten’s special proprietary laser removes tattoos using pulses of laser light energy in speeds up to a picosecond compared to the nanosecond burst of traditional laser tattoo removal systems.
The end result is high-precision, controlled bursts of laser energy that quickly break down tattoo ink in a fraction of the time needed for traditional laser tattoo removal.
This means fewer sessions to remove a tattoo, and quicker results for patients.
While all laser tattoo removal systems can cause localized pain and swelling — including Enlighten –patients report less pain from Enlighten treatments, in many cases saying the removal was less painful than the tattoo application. In addition, since Enlighten requires fewer treatments, the overall experience is quicker and results in fewer side-effects. “Enlighten is the most advanced laser for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and it’s administered in the safety of a doctor’s office,” Pennington says.
