Cutera Center of Excellence
Conveniently located to servE Tallahassee, Flordia
Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic is proud to offer North Florida the Cutera Enlighten laser, one the most advanced laser platforms in the world, for effective removal of tattoos and brown spots with minimal to no discomfort. Patients are treated with the Cutera Enlighten laser in Tallahassee under the supervision of our three board-certified plastic surgeons.
Nano and Pico technology is finally here in North Florida, providing you unmatched ability to treat your tattoos and brown spots. Because we are a Center of Excellence, you can be assured of expert medical care using the most advanced laser platform in the region.
The Enlighten method is the first device on the market to incorporate pulse intervals including both nanoseconds and picoseconds. It offers the perfect combination of adjustable variables like wavelengths, spot dimensions, and energy levels to efficiently remove pigment and dye.
What Can Be Treated?
Thanks to the rising number of people feeling ink regret, laser tattoo removal is becoming more and more of a requested treatment every day. Additionally, 40 percent of the population who are vulnerable to pigmentation problems are looking for a way to treat these issues.
The Cutera Enlighten laser can address these issues. It can safely treat:
- All skin types from light to dark skin color
- New, old, or faded tattoos
- Undesired parts of an existing tattoo
- Previously treated tattoos by other laser systems (this reveals how much more advanced our laser system really is)
- Benign brown spots, age spots, sun damage, melasma of the face, body, and hands
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 overall 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 tattoo ink particle or brown spot into tiny pieces that your immune system can clear away via the lymphatics.
What Colors Can it Remove?
We can treat a multitude of colors at various settings, unlike other lasers with only one wavelength or pulse duration. The Cutera Enlighten laser offers 532, 1064, and 670 nm laser wavelengths, along with 2 ns + 750/660 ps pulse durations. The spot size can range from 2-8 mm to address more precise areas or larger sections.
A 532 nm wavelength is able to effectively remove red ink pigments from the skin. The 670 nm can specifically target green and blue ink pigments. 1064 nm is ideal for darker ink pigments. Using these wavelengths helps to remove a wide variety of pigments in order to fully address complex tattoos.
Why Is This Laser Treatment Better?
The Enlighten laser can offer picosecond and nanosecond technology in one platform with industry-leading pulse energy to shatter these pigment particles into tiny pieces that your body can handle. Because of this, we can treat your ink problem more effectively, quickly, safely and with less pain.
At an amazing speed of trillionths of a second, picotechnology produces greater laser energy 1,000 times quicker than nanotechnology. It triggers a massive heat transfer that splits the tattoo ink into tiny fragments that can be processed quite easily by the body.
The picotechnology of the Enlighten Laser reduces heat-incidental damage to the surrounding tissue of the target. With less risk of scar-tissue formation, reduced discomfort, and a faster post-treatment healing period, this laser technology offers tattoo removal in a way that’s safer and easier than ever.
We can offer numbing injections to relieve pain during the treatment. We can treat tattoos that did not respond to other laser treatments because Enlighten offers more power and speed of light.
How Long Does It Take?
Brown spots can be often removed in one treatment; however, some patients may need 2-3 treatments.
Tattoo removal depends on several factors, but usually we can remove tattoos faster and with less treatment than other laser systems because of the advanced nano and pico second technology. Four treatments are a goal, but some patients need more or fewer treatments depending on their tattoo specifics.
How Much Does Cutera Enlighten Laser Treatment Cost?
The price of Cutera Enlighten laser treatment sessions varies. The clinic you choose affects the treatment’s cost, as does the exact nature of the issues being addressed.
