The diverse range of colors and particle sizes found in tattoos makes their removal a formidable challenge. Ink particles come in countless formulations and sizes, and tattoos come in many different colors. In order to treat them effectively, multiple wavelengths must be-utilized to target specific colors at various depths and specific pulse durations to address the ink density and size. Thanks to the revolutionary technological advancements of the enlighten system, the de-inking process is fast, safe, and effective.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser light has the ability to penetrate beneath the surface of the skin and shatter tattoo ink into tiny particles. Those ink particles are then removed from your system by your body’s natural immune functions. We use the Cutera Enlighten Laser, a cutting-edge laser system that uses both picosecond and nanosecond pulses of light, which allows it to target a full range of tattoo inks. The speed and intensity of the Enlighten laser breaks down ink faster and more completely than other lasers on the market, meaning fewer treatment sessions and better results.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
Most patients report feeling mild pain during their laser tattoo removal sessions. Some compare it to the sensation of getting their tattoo, while others liken it to the snapping of a rubber band against their skin. For people with a low tolerance for pain, we offer topical anesthetics to help alleviate any discomfort.
How long will it take to remove my tattoo?
When you come in for an initial, free consultation, we’ll evaluate your tattoo. The amount of time it can take to remove your tattoo varies depending on the size, location, and color of your ink. On average, it takes about three to six sessions to complete laser tattoo removal treatment, with a 6-8 weeks healing period between sessions.
