Peak Power with variable pulse widths 

The Cutera Enlighten laser features both nanosecond pulses and picosecond pulses in the same laser system. This enables the user to achieve efficient and effective removal of ink and pigmentation. 

As well as this, the Cutera enlighten laser offers a strong non-thermal photochemical effect with a high peak power and ultra-short pulse-widths. This technologies allows the user to the shatter the target chormphore without causing thermal damage to the surrounding skin.

This is ideal for the treatment of stubborn tattoos as well as skin rejuvenation with such as PICO Genesis.

Multiple wavelengths offer multi coloured pigment removal 

It is a well known fact that tattoo ink and pigmentation issues can be made up of multiple colours. This requires multiple wavelengths to remove them effectively and safely.

The Cutera Enlighten laser offers 3 such laser wavelengths for this purpose

  • 1064nm for targeting darker ink
  • 532nm for targeting red inks
  • 670nm the first of its types for targeting greens and blues.

Pico Genesis

This is a procedure to maximise results for laser skin toning and texturing. Cutera Pico Genesis harnesses the power and flexibility of the enlighten SR and this, combined with its dual delivery, selectively shatters the pigmented and induces dermal disruption. This causes a remodelling of the skin and rejuvenation in fewer than 3 session. 

Pico Genesis FX

This technology from Cutera laser introduces and entirely new treatment technique for the treatment of scars, wrinkles and unwanted pigments.  It combines Cutera Enlightens' non-thermal pico-pulse with fractionated mocro-lens array  for the treatment on all skin types.
