What is the enlighten™ Skin Toning Laser Treatment?
enlighten™ by CUTERA® is an effective laser procedure that achieves dramatic results in evening out skin tone and reducing unwanted pigment. The enlighten™ skin toning device uses shorter pulse durations and higher peak power to effectively shatter pigment particles without causing damage to the surrounding tissue, resulting in clearer, brighter, more even looking skin.
We all find ourselves wanting to even out our skin tone at some stage in our lives. The melanin in our skin sometimes occurs in high concentrations, resulting in uneven skin tone and brown spots. At Midtown Med Spa, our answer to uneven skin tone is the enlighten™ Skin Toning Laser treatment. We use this non-invasive laser procedure to help patients treat:
- Uneven skin tone
- Dark patches and spots
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Liver spots
- Poor skin texture
How Does the enlighten™ Skin Toning Laser Treatment Work?
When the the enlighten™ skin toning device is gently swept over your skin’s surface, the unique multiple wavelengths of 1064 nm, 532mn, and 670mn are delivered in ultra-short pulses under your skin, causing an intense photomechanical disruption that shatters the pigmentation, helping to induce the remodeling of your skin that leads to a brighter, more uniform complexion.
