The Facts About Cutera Enlighten Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal has been around for years. In the beginning, tattoo removal was incredibly painful and ineffective. Fortunately, through advances in science, the way tattoos are removed has greatly progressed. “It has become less painful and more effective than ever, making tattoo removal a less intimidating process,” explains Amy Bowen, licensed aesthetician and certified laser technician at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas.

How Tattoo Removal Works

Currently, tattoos are removed by lasers. “A laser must have a certain wavelength and pulse duration in order to break down the various ink particles and colors effectively in a tattoo,” shares Bowen. Once the ink particles have been made small enough, the white blood cells can carry them to the liver, disposing of them for good. If particles are not broken down into small enough pieces, the white blood cells are unable to discard of them, which is why tattoo removal takes multiple treatments.

Tattoo Removal with Enlighten by Cutera

As previously mentioned, the technology, specifically lasers, that makes tattoo removal possible is quickly advancing. Enlighten is a new tattoo removal laser created by Cutera. “This laser has more power and is faster than other tattoo removal lasers,” Bowen shares. This new laser is more effective at breaking up ink particles. And, as stated above, when the ink particles are smaller, it allows the white blood cells to take more of the particles to the liver. Since this laser is better at breaking down ink particles, it more effectively removes tattoos.
