PICO Laser

Enlighten is a brand of laser system used for tattoo and pigment removal by Cutera.

It utilizes advanced technology, including picosecond and nanosecond pulse durations, to break down tattoo ink and pigments into smaller particles, making them easier for the body to eliminate.

Enlighten lasers are known for their effectiveness in tattoo removal, including multicolored tattoos, and the treatment of various pigmented skin conditions.

The combination of different pulse durations allows for a more versatile and precise approach to removing tattoos and pigmented lesions.
