The Cutera Enlighten 3 III Laser represents a giant leap forward in treating tattoos. This laser emits a beam of light that shatters the ink into tiny pieces that are absorbed harmlessly by the body. All this can be accomplished with little to no damage of the surrounding tissue. The biggest advantage of this laser is that it can remove tattoos in fewer treatments and with less risk.

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.

What To Expect During Laser Tattoo Removal?

You’ll be given a pair of protective eye shields, The technician will then test your skin’s reaction to the laser to determine the most effective energy for treatment. The laser pulses intense light through the top layers of your skin that will be absorbed by the tattoo pigment only.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments is dependent on the complexity of the individual’s tattoo. Age, size, and colour of the tattoo, as well as the color of your skin is also an important factor, along with how deep the tattoo pigment goes. We typically estimate a minimum of 6-10 treatments for tattoo removal.


Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?
Laser tattoo removal is uncomfortable, but not necessarily unbearable. The treatments are quick but if you are concerned about the level of pain, we recommend using a numbing cream prior to your visit. Apply a generous layer and cover it with gauze and cling wrap, make sure it stays on your skin for a minimum of 30 minutes to ensure proper numbing effects. We do use cooling agents during the treatment to encourage comfortability. Patients should avoid exposure to the sun or tanning beds for a week after treatment.
