enlighten® tattoo removal from Cutera® is an approach to tattoo removal. This powerful platform utilizes both nanosecond and picosecond pulses of laser energy. This promotes the more precise treatment of pigmentation on the skin.


During enlighten tattoo removal sessions, the handheld device is used to deliver pulses of laser energy. As these pulses target the tattoo, the break up the particles of the ink. The particles become smaller, resulting in a faded appearance. The features of this platform allow for the wavelengths to be specified and tailored to meet the unique needs of your tattoo and skin.

Each tattoo removal session is performed on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our Michigan office. Although these sessions are relatively short, the length of a treatment session will ultimately depend on the size of the tattoo. While you should be able to resume most of your normal daily activities, you may experience some sensitivity or tenderness in the treatment area.

Results achieved with enlighten tattoo removal will vary for each person, their skin, and the tattoo treated. To achieve the best removal, a series of treatments is typically recommended. The size of the tattoo and the color of the ink may impact how many treatments are needed.


One of the best benefits of enlighten tattoo removal is the diversity in skin tones and types it may be able to treat.
