The Enlighten laser removes tattoo ink by using light energy to break the ink into tiny particles. These particles are then removed by the body’s immune system. The Enlighten laser provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
We can remove professional and amateur (homemade) tattoos. We do not perform removal of permanent make-up such as lipliner, eyeliner and eyebrows.
On the average, professional tattoos require 6-8 treatments, while amateur tattoos require 4-5 treatments, all spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Black, dark blue and red inks respond the best. Oranges, purple, green and sky blue will usually fade as well. Yellow, white and florescent colors are the most difficult to remove.
Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. Certain factors such as the type of ink used and how deeply it was applied make it impossible for the physician to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.
Patients describe the treatment as similar to a series of snaps from a small rubber band on the skin. Topical anesthesia is available, though usually not required.
You will be asked to apply antibiotic ointment and a nonstick dressing to the treated area for 10 days. Other than avoidance of sun exposure, there are no activity restrictions. You may shower the next day. It is necessary to follow all of your physician’s post procedure instructions.
