Enlighten powers through unwanted tattoos using the world’s first dual wavelength laser technology. Using both nanosecond and picosecond technology to send ultra-short intense pulses of light to your skin, enlighten removes tattoos quickly and effectively. Nanosecond technology is extremely fast, with light traveling at one billionth of a second. Picosecond technology is even faster, with light pulses traveling at one trillionth of a second.
Through your course of treatments (the number depends on several different factors), the laser light breaks up the ink into tiny particles that are absorbed by your body, then eliminated through your body’s natural processes. The enlighten laser is so fast and efficient that your tattoo could be eliminated in up to 40 percent fewer treatment sessions than other tattoo removal methods.
The reason we offer both picosecond and nanosecond technology is to give patients the option to choose the pulse speed they prefer. Generally speaking, Dr. Almeida recommends the picosecond setting for dark ink tones and dense designs. If you have a light or shaded tattoo, using nanosecond is usually sufficient. No other device currently exists that allows tattoo removal practitioners and patients to choose pulse speed based on individual factors. Skin types from extremely light to extremely dark can all benefit from the enlighten laser.
One of the unfortunate things about tattoos is that both getting them and getting them taken off can be uncomfortable. However, at Miami Ink Off, we’ve developed a technique that makes the entire tattoo removal process virtually pain-free.
Unlike most tattoo removal services that can only use chilled gel and numbing cream to help relieve discomfort, because we have on-staff physicians Miami Ink Off is able to offer lidocaine injections that provide instant numbness at the site.
Better Technology + Proven Experience = Virtual Pain-Free Removal
Tattoos are removed by lasers that emit short pulses of intense light that pass through the top layers of the skin to where the ink is located. The light breaks the ink into tiny, dust-like particles that are readily absorbed by your body, and eliminated through its natural processes.
Dr. Jose Almeida finished his general surgery residency at the University of Miami- Jackson Memorial Hospital in 1996 and fellowship in vascular surgery at the University of Missouri- Columbia in 1998. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery in both Vascular Surgery and General Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and serves as Voluntary Professor of Surgery at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Dr. Almeida has been performing office-based surgery for the past 20 years with a focus on venous disease. His 20 years experience with 532 KTP and 1064 NDA lasers, tumescent anesthesia, local wound care is a natural fit for patients who desire tattoo removal. Because local anesthesia is introduced prior to tattoo removal, patients are guaranteed a painless tattoo removal experience.
