Developed by Cutera is an advanced laser system that uses both nanosecond and picosecond technology for gentle and quick improvement in the appearance of unwanted freckles, melasma, sun spots, age spots as well as difficult to treat dermal pigmentation.
Enlighten has also revolutionized the paradigm for treating unwanted tattoos including cosmetic eyebrow tattoos and is a premium picosecond platform safe for all skin types.
The Micro Lens Array available as an attachment to the laser handpiece is compatible with both the 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths and features a beam profile unique in its class allowing for superior surface coverage and deeper penetration when approaching global skin rejuvenation.
This Pico Genesis procedure advances " lasertoning " to the 21st century by delivering the widest range of energies at multiple wavelengths with a high safety profile , and thereby maximizes patient satisfaction.
Melanin is what gives us colour in our skin, but when it occurs in high one uneven concentrations it can result in unwanted brown spots or uneven skin tone.
The laser light from enlighten uses two different wavelengths (532nm/1064nm) to treat these brown spots breaking the melanin pigment into tiny particles that are more easily cleared from the body than conventional Q switched nanosecond lasers.
Enlighten picosecond and dual pulse technology offers the most effective photo acoustic energy to break up the melanin pigment with little or no collateral damage to the surrounding skin. What this means is that the risk of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation is greatly reduced.
Enlighten's exclusive Low Energy Green (LEG) capability extends the fluence of 532nm to ultra low settings so that effective treatments can be performed with a high safety margin. Coupled with picosecond pulses , LEG is a gentle and efficient solution to treat benign pigmented lesions.
Prior to treatment the target area will be cleaned and a topical anaesthetic may be applied to ensure better comfort for some patients.
During treatment you will feel a sensation similar to a small rubber band being snapped against your skin. Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable and described it as a light stinging sensation.
Immediately after treatment, you can expect some mild redness for a few hours at most, however you can return to regular activities immediately following the treatment.
Typically a series of at least two or three enlighten treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results although some case may require more sessions.
Ongoing maintenance treatments will encourage the best results over time.
