What Types of Skin Issues Can Be Treated?We can treat the following skin issues with the Cutera Enlighten laser:
- Benign brown spots
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Melasma of the face, body, and hands
Factors like aging and sun exposure form dark spots on the skin. Although these spots don’t pose health risks, they can make people feel self-conscious about their appearance. The Cutera Enlighten laser is a cost-effective way to make brown spots disappear.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Brown Spot Removal?
If the presence of brown spots on your skin makes you feel embarrassed or self-conscious, you may be an ideal candidate for brown spot removal.
Many other types of skin treatments are not safe for darker skin tones, but we can use our Cutera Enlighten brown spot removal to safely treat all skin types, from light to dark.
Good candidates are in good overall health. Drinking and smoking can both negatively affect the results of this treatment. Because of this, candidates should avoid them before the treatment date for a period of time recommended during your consultation.
You should not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Additionally, you should not be taking certain prescription and OTC medications. It will be important to bring up any current medications during your consultation.
If you have other skin conditions such as psoriasis or rosacea, you may not be a good candidate for this treatment option, since they may negatively interact with the treatment.
How Does It Work?
The Enlighten laser is the only laser of its kind to offer dual wavelengths with both the nano and pico pulses. It can provide more speed and power options than other lasers on the market, which means more effective treatments in less time, up to 40% faster.
A nano second of light comes in at a billionth of a second, while the pico second energy comes in at a trillionth of a second, creating a photo acoustic effect.
The laser light hits so fast that it shatters the brown spot into tiny pieces that your immune system can clear away via the lymphatics. We can treat brown spots at various settings, unlike other lasers with only one wavelength or pulse duration.
Before we administer the procedure, one of our experts will meet with you for a consultation. Make sure to tell them about your complete medical history. With this knowledge, they can verify that the procedure is safe for you. They will also ask you about your expectations in terms of results.
After treatment, during the recovery process, you must follow your surgeon’s aftercare directions for best results. Moisturize your skin, wear the proper sunscreen, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.
Why Is This Laser Treatment Better?
The Enlighten laser offers picosecond and nanosecond technology in one platform. The laser’s industry-leading pulse energy shatters pigment particles into tiny pieces that your body can handle.
We can treat your brown spots more effectively, quickly, safely, and with less pain. Before your treatment, we can offer numbing injections to prevent any pain. Because Enlighten offers more power and speed of light, we can treat skin issues that did not respond to other laser treatments.
For examples of the results we can achieve, look over our brown spot removal before and after photos in our gallery.
We don’t just use the Cutera Enlighten laser for brown spot removal – we also use it for tattoo removal. It can address the pigments used in unwanted tattoos, shattering them using laser energy. This makes for incredibly effective tattoo removal.
How Long Does Brown Spot Removal Take?
Brown spots can be often removed in one treatment; however, 2-3 treatments must be administered for some patients in order to fully reduce the appearance of the discoloration.
