Congratulations to Anthea Wolland who wins this week’s movie passes. Thanks Andrea, your tickets are in the mail!
Ms B had a relatively recent red and black tattoo on her shoulder. The second image shows the ‘frosted’ tattoo immediately after treatment. Red and black require different wavelengths to treat, and these were both used in the same session.
Ms D had a tattoo on her lower back which had been treated several times before elsewhere in Melbourne. Unfortunately, the previous treatments had not been performed with the correct laser, and she had some keloid (raised) scarring and remaining (mainly green) ink. The second photo show Ms D’s tattoo immediately after treatment. She has since reported that her tattoo has faded noticeably and that the treatment was much more comfortable than her previous experiences. Where she had suffered bleeding and scabbing before, our treatment was fully recovered in a few days, with better ink removal. Ms D is scheduled to see us again in the next two weeks and we look forward to seeing her progress.
Ms T had 3 tattoos she wanted removed. One on her forearm, one on her ankle and one on her stomach. She had been treated several times before at another clinic in Melbourne and had fading on the ankle tattoo and fading on some colours of the stomach tattoo. The wrist tattoo remained quite dark as the previous treatments were probably done with an inadequate laser. We treated Ms T’s stomach with our Nd YAG laser, switching wavelengths for different colours. For her ankle and stubborn wrist tattoo, we employed our Ruby laser. This unit was purchased especially to treat colours which are difficult to remove with other lasers. Other machines either cannot treat these colours or rely on special handpieces which drastically reduce the power.
