Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal was introduced in 2014 as the most advanced technology for tattoo removal using picosecond technology. What does this mean for you?
If you are looking to have a tattoo removed or cleaned up then there are several reasons why you would consider having it removed with picosecond technology, whether it is the Picosure laser or Enlighten laser.
Traditional laser tattoo removal has been done with nanosecond technology, the newer picosecond technology is 1000 times shorter in pulses and has been shown to remove tattoos more completely in fewer treatment sessions than traditional lasers. We have been using lasers for tattoo removal in our clinic for over 16 years and have a wealth of experience with all technologies.
WHY ENLIGHTEN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?
The Enlighten laser tattoo removal uses both nanosecond and picosecond technology as well as two wavelengths to completely remove tattoos quickly and effectively.
The wavelengths used by this picosecond laser are 532 and 1064. At 532 wavelengths the laser creates a green light that is absorbed by red and orange pigment tattoos. This wavelength is also absorbed by melanin and so can be used for removing sunspots and age spots as well.
At 1064 the laser creates a near infrared light that is poorly absorbed by melanin making it a great wavelength for darker skin types. It also is absorbed by dark tattoo pigments and so removes black ink very effectively.
Laser Tattoo removal is a science requiring both skill and technique and experience in order to successfully remove that tattoo regret. It requires both a knowledge of the wavelengths as well as spot sizes (how deep to go) and fluence ( enough to fragment the tattoo particles) in order to make sure that there is an effective removal of the tattoo in a safe manner.
At BC laser we have been removing tattoos for over 16 years from the very first Medlite c6 tattoo removal laser to the most current 2 picosecond laser tattoo removal devices.
We are currently the only clinic in Canada that has both the Picosure laser tattoo removal system as well as the Enlighten Laser tattoo removal system.
