If you have a tattoo that you would like to eliminate from the skin, you’re not alone! Many individuals who have tattoos later decide to have them removed with laser tattoo removal. Dr. Cynthia Cote and her team in Maple Valley, WA, are pleased to provide laser tattoo removal with the Cutera Enlighten® system, which ensures results in a shorter period of time when compared to alternative laser treatments. She finds this to be the most effective and safest way to reduce or remove unwanted tattoos on the skin for a clean appearance or to prepare for a coverup.
How does laser tattoo removal with the Cutera Enlighten® system work?
Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the tattoo’s ink with a laser. The laser sends out light that breaks up the ink into small pieces. These pieces are then absorbed by the body and eventually fade away. Over the course of several treatments, the tattoo will fade and become less noticeable on the skin. Patients can have a few treatments to reduce the tattoo and prepare for a coverup image or can have several sessions to completely remove the tattoo from the skin.
What sets the Cutera Enlighten® tattoo removal system and process apart from other laser therapies used in this manner?
The Cutera Enlighten® offers adjustable parameters and a combination of nanosecond and picosecond durations to ensure more noticeable results in a shorter period of time, effectively breaking down tattoo ink in the skin. It offers fast and powerful removal of unwanted tattoos when compared to other more traditional treatment methods and is highly recommended by the team at MD Cote.
