Cutera Enlighten Pico

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Serving Dallas, Plano, Southlake, and Nearby Fort Worth, Texas

Cutera Enlighten Pico Laser System removes tattoos and addresses skin discoloration. At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of laser treatments to address skin concerns, including the Cutera Enlighten Pico for pigment correction. This skin resurfacing system is the leading tattoo removal treatment that can also address severe discoloration from skin conditions or trauma that are benign. Tattoo removal is a rising industry that grows at an annual rate of 12.7 percent, but up to 40 percent of the population has concerns about their skin pigment.

The Enlighten Pico is the first of its kind to utilize both nano- and picosecond pulses to blend the correct ratio of wavelength, energy, and treatment area size and deliver even results for patients with “tattoo regret” or pigment issues.

If you wish to remove a tattoo or correct skin discoloration, please contact our medical spa in Dallas today at (817) 416-8080 to see if the Cutera Enlighten Pico laser treatment is right for you. North Texas Plastic Surgery serves patients in surrounding areas of Fort Worth, Texas including Plano and Southlake.

Some of the benefits of Cutera Enlighten Pico technology include:

  • Dual-Pulse System: The Cutera Enlighten Pico uses longer pulses at two nanoseconds a piece and short, 750/660 picoseconds to deliver powerful, efficient, ink removal and pigmentation correction.
  • Non-Thermal Photomechanics: The quick pulses that break apart the targeted area with discoloration or tattoo ink combined with the high peak power effectively correct the skin pigment without increasing heat and causing tissue damage.
  • Multiple Wavelengths: The Enlighten system targets the various colors involved in tattoos (particularly blue and green pigments) using isolated red wavelengths with a laser. These wavelengths are also useful in correcting congenital or difficult-to-treat skin conditions.
  • PICO Genesis™: The Enlighten technology combined PICO Genesis offers a dual procedure that delivers results in three or fewer sessions, compared to the 15 or more treatments required with other pigment correction systems, making this combination highly-effective in dramatic skin discoloration or high-contrast tattoo ink.

What Skin Concerns and Conditions Can be Treated with Cutera Enlighten Pico?

Tattoo removal and uneven or drastic skin pigmentation are best treated with Cutera Enlighten Pico. Many people with tattoos enjoy how they look and are happy with their appearance, but many also regret getting a tattoo. That could be because the quality didn’t turn out how they’d hoped or due to an infection or complication during the healing process that caused uneven ink distribution and/or scarring. However, some men and women simply outgrow their tattoos and regret getting them.

Skin discoloration can occur for a variety of reasons such as birthmarks, skin patches due to hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and more.
