Vancouver, Canada, September 16, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Reviva Laser Skin Clinic, a leading provider of skin treatments in Metro Vancouver, is pleased to introduce a new method of combining fractional laser and Q-switched Alexandrite laser to permanently remove difficult tattoos.
Tattoos are typically treated with the Q-switched laser or another laser alone. When it comes to tattoo ink, not all colours are equal: black or red tattoos are typically easiest to remove because the pigments respond well to lasers while blue and green are the most difficult. At Reviva, Dr. Henry Ngai, MD (University of British Columbia), combines two existing laser technologies in an advanced way to effectively remove even green tattoos.
On pairing fractional lasers with Q-switched Alexandrite lasers for tattoo removal, Dr. Elliot T. Weiss and Dr. Roy G. Geronemus, New York, say early reports suggest “this combined technique for laser tattoo removal appears to increase tattoo clearance, eliminate blistering, shorten recovery, and diminish treatment-induced hypopigmentation.” (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery)
Dermatologist Arielle Kauvar, MD, FAAD, clinical professor of dermatology at New York University School of Medicine, also notes initial results “have shown significant improvement in removing blue, green and black inks.” (Academy of Dermatology)
Permanent tattoos cannot be removed with cream, store-bought products, or home remedies. The only things that work are traditional ablative methods and modern lasers. Unlike traditional lasers or excision, newer laser technologies are non-invasive and do not damage surface skin -- the procedure is less painful, requires less recovery time, and is less likely to leave scars. Laser tattoo removal should only be performed by experienced physicians.
