The enlighten™ by Cutera is the most advanced tattoo removal laser available today, offering unique strengths to tattoo removal patients of all needs:
Dual wavelength – With two wavelength options (1064 nm and 532 nm), the Enlighten™ is able to remove various colors of ink from a single tattoo. In the past, multiple lasers were often necessary to adequately remove a tattoo of multiple colors, lengthening the removal process.
Dual pulse speed – Enlighten™ offers two pulse speeds, picosecond and nanosecond, making it easier and faster to remove the ink. These pulse speeds lower the chance of side effects, while eliminating ink as quickly as possible.
Wide spot-size range – We are able to go from 2mm to 8mm, making it easier to treat both small and large tattoos very quickly.
Speed – Once the decision has been made to remove a tattoo, everyone wants it gone as quickly as possible! With the power of Enlighten™, we’re able to remove the tattoo faster than any other laser on the market today.

In many cases, yes. However, because there are over 100 tattoo inks are being used and they are not regulated by the FDA, it is impossible to determine how many treatments it will take to remove it completely. The success depends on how much ink was used, and how deep it is in the skin.
Enlighten™ laser pulses are so fast that they shatter the pigment with an acoustic shockwave, not with absorption of heat. This ultra-fast pulse feels similar to a rubber band snap. The process is not pain-free, but considerably less painful than getting a tattoo in the first place and quicker too. Topical anesthetic can be used to minimize the sensation.
“What a great place. They are very knowledgeable and after only coming in once knew me by my first name. I got laser hair removal from Nicki who made sure my experience was as painless as possible. They have lots of supplements that their nutritionist can suggest for patients. They do tattoo removal, botox, fillers, skin tightening. This place really has it all, even Vit B Injections!! It’s nice to find a place that does everything I need.” — Kali B.
Following an enlighten™ laser tattoo removal treatment, the area will be red. Small blisters may develop after 48 hours. These should resolve within 1-2 weeks depending on the location and size of the tattoo. Keep the area covered and out of the sun and let any blisters resolve on their own. Call our office if there are any questions. It is recommended that treatments be spaced between 6-8 weeks apart for optimal results.
Fees are determined during your consultation and the size of the tattoo is the primary determining factor.

There are a variety of lasers available for tattoo removal. Most lasers can remove black ink but colors can be more of a challenge. We recommend the Enlighten by Cutera, which offers the fastest and most effective tattoo removal on the market. In general, the Enlighten will remove most tattoos in one third of the time it would take with other systems.
Black ink is the easiest to remove. Depending on the age of the tattoo, it could be gone in as little as 3 treatments but most black tattoos will need at least 6 sessions spaced 8-12 weeks apart. For most other colors, you can expect between 7 and 12 treatments.
