As one of the most advanced tattoo removal lasers on the market, the enlighten laser can remove a full spectrum of tattoo colors, including stubborn blues and purples, in fewer treatments than most other devices.

How Does enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Enlighten features multiple wavelengths (1064, 532 and 670) and PICO + NANO pulse durations in one system making it one of the most effective tattoo removal devices available today.
With pico/nano technology, enlighten allows our providers to match pulse duration to particle size — giving patients a complete and fast clearance of their unwanted tattoo. Large particles respond best to longer pulse durations (nanosecond). As particles become smaller, shorter pulse durations (picosecond) are more effective.

Describe PFD Patch
The FDA-cleared DeScribe PFD Patch allows rapid multiple laser passes in each treatment session. Adding the DeScribe PFD Patch to your enlighten laser treatments allows us to treat your unwanted tattoo more aggressively and at shorter visit intervals.
The DeScribe Patch can be integrated into your enlighten laser tattoo removal treatment by simply placing the Patch over the tattoo being removed. The Patch is made up of a dual-layer silicone sheet infused with PFD (perfluorodecalin) – a completely inert, harmless liquid that allows the tattoo to be treated with the laser several times in a single treatment session. The PFD reduces the scattering of light to help break up ink particles deep within the skin tissue; while the silicone layer of the Patch helps draw away heat from the top layer of skin.
- Faster removal start to finish. Because of a quicker healing response, we are able to space your tattoo removal treatments closer together; ultimately reducing removal process timeline.
- Fewer treatments may be needed. The Patch allows us to do multiple laser passes in one treatment and to reach ink particles deep within the skin; which may reduce the total number of treatments needed.
- Reduction of discomfort. The silicone layer of the Patch helps draw heat away from the top layer of skin which helps to minimize discomfort.
In a recent clinical trial, patients reported not only less discomfort, but faster healing post-treatment with the DeScribe Patch. In the same study, 100% of subjects given the option of completing treatment with or without the Patch chose the Patch.
What to Expect
The number of enlighten laser tattoo removal treatments, duration of treatment and healing time varies depending on the tattoo’s size, age, ink used and location on the body. During your free tattoo removal consultation, your provider will cover expectations for your specific tattoo. In general, patient’s can expect up to 8 tattoo removal sessions; although in many cases fewer treatments are needed. Adding the DeScribe PFD Patch to your session will reduce the number of treatments needed as well as the healing time; which allows us to space treatments closer together.
We stand behind our technology! Any tattoo removal treatment needed after 8 is FREE. All 8 treatments must have been performed at Mirabile M.D. on the same tattoo and must have included the DeScribe PFD Patch.
Microblading has become quite popular and can be an excellent way to achieve full, well-shaped eyebrows. Microblading, once known as semi-permanent makeup, is a process that uses tiny needles to etch ink into the skin under the eyebrow, giving the look of make-up. Because microblading doesn’t penetrate as deep into the skin as traditional tattoo, the results will start to fade over a couple of years time.
While many microblade treatments produce wonderful results, the increase in popularity has also led to an increase in issues. Disappointment in results and changing of ink color over time are just a couple of examples of microblading regret.
The enlighten laser is very effective at correcting microblading gone bad. Like tradtional tattoo removal, enlighten breaks up the microblading pigment allowing for full clearance of unwanted ink.
