Tattoo Removal With the PICO Genesis™ Enlighten Laser

Dr. M. Bradley Calobrace and Dr. Chet Mays are proud to offer PICO Genesis™ Enlighten to their Louisville and Lexington laser tattoo removal patients. They also use the Spectra Facial Laser by Lutronic. PICO Genesis™ Enlighten is the newest and most effective treatment for the safe treatment of unwanted tattoos and other benign pigmented areas of skin including freckles, moles, and some birthmarks. Research shows that PICO Genesis™ Enlighten provides better results in less time than traditional laser removal.

PICO Genesis™ Enlighten is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser available today. Other treatments use nanosecond lasers that rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. These lasers may not remove the darkest discolorations and can damage surrounding tissue.

PICO Genesis™ Enlighten goes beyond photothermal action, using patented PressureWave™ technology that shatters the tattoo ink or other pigment into tiny particles whereas other tattoo removal lasers break the particles into rocks or at best pebbles, PICO Genesis™ Enlighten turns the pigment particles into “sand” that can be then be easily discarded from the body. This FDA-approved tattoo removal treatment delivers energy to the skin in shorter, faster, and more powerful rates – 100 times more powerful. A picosecond laser pulse width is 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology. This short pulse width means half the exposure is required compared with nanosecond lasers.

The PICO Genesis™ Enlighten Advantage

The benefits of PICO Genesis™ Enlighten over traditional lasers include a more concentrated application of energy and fewer treatments (as few as 4 to 6, compared with up to 10 to 15 with nanosecond lasers). The quicker pulse and higher concentration of laser heat means patients experience less energy exposure, and there is less injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as tattoos that were previously treated unsuccessfully, can be removed.

Your Treatment & Recovery

PICO Genesis™ Enlighten laser applications are quick but can cause some discomfort, so cool air is used to sooth the area during treatment. Healing is faster than with other laser treatments, and there is virtually no scarring. Patients should avoid exposure to the sun or tanning beds for a week after treatment.
