PHYSICIAN PERFORMED Laser Tattoo Removal
NYS Law : Laser Tattoo Removal is a Medical Procedure.
A lot of unqualified persons are offering laser tattoo removal promising a “medical director “ or “ medical supervisor”.
Ask is the Doctor going to perform your procedure, how many years have they been practicing then call me.
What is the best laser for laser tattoo removal?
The Q-Switched YAG is the most popular. It is important to use the proper laser to avoid burns, scaring and changes in your skin color.
I only use the best FDA approved Q Switched lasers for laser tattoo removal.
Less pain & Consistent results makes me the destination for competent physician performed laser tattoo removal for all NY and Long Island
It is important to let the area heal , a period of 6 weeks between treatments is recommended. Any less you will be wasting money, the immune system can only carry away so much at one time. So repeat early treatments are of no benefit.
Who are my most common patients?
FADE is always better that having a cover up or a layer.
How much does laser tattoo removal hurt?
The pain of laser tattoo removal is described as a stretched rubber band snapping on your skin.
I use potent numbing cream
Novacaine injection and Nerve Blocks to dull any pain
Meticulous after care is required in order to avoid infection which could lead to scaring. A layer of antibiotic ointment is applied to the area and non stick dressing applied and taped. I arranged with a local pharmacy to have in stock the specific bandage. The bandage and antibiotic must be put on 2 times a day untill the area looks healed, in general 3 days. Showering is acceptable but tepid water and NO SCRUBBING. Also no sun exposure to the area at all. If you can cover the tattoo you can go into the sun. Complications associated with laser tattoo removal are mild but include scaring(5%), hypopigmentation ( loss of color 20%), hyperpigmentation (darker skin),infection,itching, allergic reaction (rare)
