While tattoos may be a fun method of self-expression, they can also come with regrets. Whether the tattoo was poorly done, represents something you’d like to forget, or failed to hold up well with time, patients may ask a dermatologist about laser tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal is one way to break down ink pigments in the skin and slowly fade away an unwanted tattoo anywhere on the body. At MD Cote in Maple Valley, WA, patients often ask Dr. Cynthia Cote about the advantages of laser tattoo removal and the device used to perform it: the Cutera Enlighten system.
What is Cutera Enlighten?
Cutera Enlighten is an FDA cleared device that is used to break down ink pigmentation in tattoo ink found in the skin. It uses amazing Pico technology which is versatile and effective at fading away tattoos on the skin. It uses both nanosecond and picosecond pulse durations, the first on the market to use this advanced methodology. The device can be adjusted to effectively address unwanted tattoos or even pigmentation in the skin such as birthmarks or sunspots.
The Cutera Enlighten is perfect for patients considering skin rejuvenation services with today’s technology. Dr. Cynthia Cote is constantly expanding offerings at her dermatology practice and learning more about new methodologies in the fields of general, medical, and cosmetic dermatology. Patients who visit the practice of MD Cote will find a wide range of services that are readily available to choose from, and are often excited to find that they can successfully remove unwanted tattoos with laser light energy!
How long does laser tattoo removal take?
The process requires several appointments during which the Cutera Enlighten system is used to penetrate deep within the skin and target the ink pigments in the tattoo. The darker the ink and the higher the quality, the more treatment sessions required to achieve the desired results.
