Your Tattoos Aren’t Permanent Anymore
Despite being around for hundreds of years, tattoos are still increasing in popularity with an estimated 18.25% of the population aged 18 years and older admitting to having some type of body art.
Unfortunately, despite thought and planning, for some people, the love of tattoos doesn’t always last and they come to regret getting inked for life.
The good news is that with advances in technology you no longer have to live with tattoo regret. The Enlighten™ system is an innovative new way to quickly get rid of that ink you would like to forget.
Enlighten™ provides patients with fast, safe, and effective tattoo removal in a fraction of the time compared with lasers of the past.
How Does Englighten™ Differ From Other Laser Tattoo Removal Systems?
Unlike older forms of laser tattoo removal, the Enlighten™ laser supplies dual wavelengths and multiple pulse speeds to increase its effectiveness at removing tattoos. The ‘picosecond’ laser pulses are extremely short and high powered which efficiently and quickly breaks down the ink particles in tattoos. These laser pulses have been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions when compared to older laser removal systems.
Even if you have a very colorful tattoo that has a variety of ink colors throughout the design the Enlighten™ can effectively target these areas which many older tattoo removal systems struggle to do.
The great thing about the Englighten™ is that each session only takes approximately 15-30 minutes depending on the area and while tattoo removal is known to be typically painful, patients who have experienced the Englighten™ tattoo removal system often describe the sensation of the machine as stinging, or similar to a rubberband being popped against the skin and less painful compared to older treatment types.
How Many Sessions Does It Take to Remove a Tattoo With the Enlighten™ Laser?
How many sessions you will need to remove a tattoo depends on a variety of factors; most notably the size of the tattoo, the density, and the colors of ink used. With the innovative Enlighten™ laser, it is not uncommon to begin seeing results after 1-2 sessions; however many patients will need between 3 and 6 sessions for the most dramatic improvement.
We do schedule sessions several weeks apart to give the body time to clear the ink particles and heal. While the Enlighten™ Laser does the work of breaking the ink a part, the body takes over afterwards and works overtime to remove the ink from the skin. The best way to understand how many sessions you may need, is to schedule a consult with us.
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.
Will My Tattoo Completely Disappear?
In many cases, yes. However, it is important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to get rid of than others. Please schedule a consultation with us to determine if Enlighten™ is right for you and your tattoo removal goals.
Are There Any Side Effects Or Downtime Following The Treatment?
Most patients will experience some redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary and patients can return to regular activities immediately following the treatment.
