This skin resurfacing system is the leading tattoo removal treatment in Dallas 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.
If you wish to remove a tattoo or correct skin discoloration, please contact our Med Spa today to see if the Cutera Enlighten Pico laser treatment in Dallas is right for you.
What is the Cutera Enlighten Pico?
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. 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.
One of our aesthetic specialists could go over these details and more with you at your initial consultation.
Skin Concerns and Conditions that Can be Treated
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.
