Enlighten is a picosecond laser system that includes the signature procedures known as Pico Genesis and the newly launched Pico Genesis FX. They’re both FDA-cleared for tattoo removal as well as the treatment of benign brown spots and acne scars.
This Picosecond laser from Cutera face and body solutions offer versatile picosecond technology. In today’s aesthetic arena, tattoo and pigmentation removal are vital parts of a successful aesthetic practice. There are also a growing number of people that are experiencing regret in the appearance of a new or old tattoo. The market sector is expected to further grow by nearly 15% in the next 5 years.
The Cutera Enlighten is one of the industries leading an aesthetic laser system to offer treatments for both tattoo and pigmentation as well as other aesthetic procedures. It features both nanosecond and picosecond pulses for the ideal blend of parameters, offering a broad range of treatments and applications.
The Cutera enlighten also has a range of wavelengths, spot size, and energy settings to correctly delivery the right amount and type of energy to the unwanted pigmentation or ink.
How does Enlighten by Cutera work?
Enlighten works by directing a beam of light on the area in extremely short pulse durations. It employs both picosecond and nanosecond technology (2 nanoseconds and 750/660 picoseconds) to efficiently target different colors and types of ink using three laser wavelengths. The high-peak-power and ultra-short pulse duration break up the tattoo pigments without causing damage to the skin around it.
The Enlighten works by firing a beam of light through the skin in extremely short pulses. The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink creating a reaction that breaks the ink down into very tiny particles. The particles are removed over time by macrophages who carry off these fragments of ink.
The Enlighten uses both picosecond and nanosecond technology to break up different types and colors of ink. Because each pulse is so short (typically 25 billionths of a second) and is targeted directly onto the pigment, there is normally no lasting damage to the skin or surrounding tissue. The whole procedure is repeated several times, usually at four to six weekly intervals, so allowing time for the body to remove as much pigment as possible.
Powerfully Versatile Pico Technology
Tattoo and pigment removal is an essential part of every aesthetic practice. With a growing number of individuals experiencing tattoo regret, the market is expected to hit a year over year growth of 12.7% through 2023.1 Also, 40% of the population susceptible to pigmentary concerns and 71% of consumers are seeking tone and texture improvement.2
The enlighten system is an industry-leading platform for tattoo removal and benign pigmented lesions. It is the first system on the market to feature both nanosecond and picosecond pulse durations and the ideal blend of parameters – the correct wavelengths, the correct spot sizes, and the correct energy levels – to effectively address unwanted pigment and ink.
Cutera Tattoo Removal Technology
enlighten® has emerged as the premier solution for laser tattoo removal. Featuring dual pulse durations (2 ns + 750/660 ps) and three unique laser wavelengths (532, 1064, 670 nm), enlighten has the power to clear all ink colors, variable ink particle sizes and densities in fewer treatments.
In addition to laser tattoo removal, enlighten’s a versatile technology and a broad range of specifications enable providers to remove unwanted pigmented lesions and address skin revitalization concerns – making this an essential multi-application platform suited for any practice.
PICO Genesis™ FX
Out of the 40-50 million Americans dealing with acne, up to 20 million may suffer from acne scars. PICO Genesis FX introduces an entirely new treatment technique to the enlighten platform beyond tattoo and pigment removal.
By combining the 1064 nm wavelength with enlighten’s novel Micro Lens Array attachment, providers can safely and effectively address acne scars, skin texture, and quality, and pores on all skin types.
Tattoo Removal Results ( Before After )
High Peak Power, Variable Pulse Durations
enlighten features longer (2 nanoseconds) and shorter (750/660 picoseconds) pulse durations in one system. This functionality gives you efficient, effective removal of ink and pigment density. Also, enlighten offers a strong, non-thermal, photomechanical effect with high-peak-power and ultra-short pulse durations that shatter the targeted pigment without causing thermal damage to the tissue that surrounds it.2 This makes it an ideal solution for the treatment of challenging skin and optimizes our signature skin revitalization treatment – PICO Genesis.
Leveraging PICO + NANO Pulses with enlighten
Matching pulse duration to ink particle size = more complete and faster clearance is achieved
Tattoos and pigment are comprised of multi-colors that require multiple wavelengths to remove effectively. The enlighten features three fully-integrated laser wavelengths – 532 nm, 1064 nm, and 670 nm – the first true red wavelength in the picosecond domain. The unique 670 nm wavelength shatters congenital or resistant pigmentary conditions and addresses challenging blue and green tattoos.
enlighten Signature Procedures
Unlike conventional laser toning that requires up to 15 treatment sessions and often leads to unpredictable results, PICO Genesis harnesses the power and flexibility of enlighten SR combined with its technical benefits in a dual-delivery procedure to selectively shatter pigment and induce dermal disruption and remodeling for true skin revitalization in fewer than three sessions.

Cutera Enlighten III Laser tattoo removal picosecond plus Q switch, remove all colors. Removes ALL colors quicker and safely—and can use in ALL skin types. New sold for $225,000, so again a huge loss. And did my research, Cutera Enlighten III is the leader, much better than Picosure by Cynosure for Laser Tattoo removal.
