What is the enlighten™ Laser by CUTERA® Tattoo Removal Treatment?
enlighten™ by CUTERA® is the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available on the market today.

How Does the enlighten™ Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment Work?
The enlighten™ laser offers the highest output energy in the industry using two wavelengths (1064 nm and 532 nm) and the quickest pulse durations to provide a tattoo removal treatment that covers almost the entire spectrum of tattoo inks.
What was once a difficult procedure is now possible without surgical excisions or skin grafts. Enlighten™ fires a beam of light through the skin into the lower layer of skin where the tattoo ink is inserted. The light is absorbed and breaks down the ink into tiny particles, which are then passed through the body naturally and removed.
