Laser tattoo removal is not created equal. Laser tattoo removal technology has advanced greatly with picosecond laser technology. Picosecond technology has taken over its predecessor Q-switched laser systems which are not nearly as effective. But, with pico technology, there are still lasers that are better than others.
When it comes to pico lasers you may have heard of PicoSure or Enlighten, well there is a big difference. Although both use picosecond technology, the Enlighten laser has the ability to do both picoseconds and nanoseconds allowing you to seamlessly switch between the two making tattoo removal better, faster, more efficient and more successful. The capabilities of the Enlighten laser allow for removal of tattoos in fewer sessions than would be possible with another pico laser, such as the PicoSure.
“The Enlighten system offers the capability to go from 750 picoseconds to 2000 picoseconds, or 2 nanoseconds simply by hitting a button on the touchscreen. That allows additional versatility beyond the range of spot sizes, or dual wavelengths. Now you also have a dual pulse duration system. I think the picosecond philosophy, the picosecond idea, offers some potential big advantages in laser tattoo reduction.” -E. Victor Ross, M.D.
The Enlighten laser has the ability to go between 750 picoseconds and 2000 picoseconds (or 2 nanoseconds) with the simple tap of a button. This is not possible on the PicoSure laser tattoo removal system, at least not without expensive extra add-ons that most clinics do not have.
When it comes to laser tattoo removal of multi-color tattoos, the dual wavelength has a much better ability to hit and destroy those colors as well as possible.
Why is Pico Technology Better?
With the old Q-switched laser, tattoos that may have taken 8-15 sessions to get removed will take less than half as many sessions, that means less time, less pain, and less money. Take a look below at the same tattoo after 3 treatments of the Enlighten laser versus a traditional Q-switched system, the difference is remarkable.
Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal has Two Wavelengths to Help Treat All Tattoo Colors
The Enlighten laser and its new picosecond technology has two different wavelengths that can be used. 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths are easily interchangeable with the Enlighten laser making it significantly easier to remove black tattoos, color tattoos, and tattoos of many mixed colors.
1064 nm wavelength: Is best for black ink and other dark colors, while also working best on darker skin types.
532 nm wavelength: Is the best choice for color tattoos, tattoos which contain red, orange, yellows, browns, and more.
The best part about it is that the Enlighten laser is able to use both wavelengths and has a much better ability to remove all tattoos.
