Getting a tattoo is a very personal choice, so is having it removed permanently. The process of removal was once difficult and abrasive and had been known to leave scarring or skin pigmentation issues. But thanks to advances in technology, tattoos can be safely and effectively removed without these negative results.
How many sessions you require can depend on several factors. For example, professional tattoos often require seven to ten. “Homemade” tattoos usually need fewer sessions. Sessions are spaced six to eight weeks apart for maximum results with minimal issues. Another factor in how many sessions you need depends on the ink colors. Black, dark blues, and dark reds tend to fade the fastest, while shades of orange, yellow, and purple are the next easiest. Lighter tones such as greens and light blues are often the most difficult to remove, but typically complete removal is possible.

Enlighten is the world’s first and only dual wavelength and dual pulse duration laser system for removing tattoos— and it’s here at Mariposa. The system is at the top of its class in treatment parameters and customization.
One of the reasons tattoo removal can be so challenging is due to the various colors and particle sizes of the ink. Multiple wavelengths, high power, and treating deep beneath the skin are integral to a successful tattoo removal. Enlighten features the broadest range of fluence and spot-size selection that allows us to control the depth, speed, power and safety of the procedure.
It’s an efficient system, making your treatment easier and quicker than ever. This treatment is backed by clinical studies, guaranteeing faster and more effective removal. It only requires a two-minute start-up time and features real-time calibration.
Enlighten is versatile, holding the capability to perform with shorter and longer pulses. Different tattoos respond differently to treatment, so Enlighten is equipped to handle a variety of cases. The nanosecond laser works best on newer tattoos, and the picosecond feature helps remove older ones. It is cleared for all skin types, so we can better serve you.
Tattoo removal can be uncomfortable and anesthesia may be used to reduce discomfort. Our trained medical professionals will discuss the individual needs of your skin and the best ways to reduce pain and discomfort before beginning the removal process so that you can make an informed decision.
