Laser Tattoo Removal
Decorative tattoos have a history dating back at least 5000 years. The desire to remove them has probably existed just as long. Early attempts to remove tattoos have had less than desirable results. The use of dermabrasion, salabrasion, and CO2 lasers have left behind scars in place of the tattoo. The advent of the Q-SWITCH LASERS has permitted the removal of most tattoo inks with very low risk of scarring. This laser can significantly lighten or remove many tattoo inks, and is particularly advanced in the removal of blue, black, and red inks. Tattoo ink is removed by using a specific wavelength which passes through the skin but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to destruct, where it is then removed by the body’s own natural filtering system. The use of this specific combination of wavelength and rapidly pulsed light results in minimal damage to the skin while providing maximum tattoo ink removal.
Underarm excessive sweating, also called axillary hyperhidrosis, is an annoying, embarrassing, and isolating problem. The miraDry procedure is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for reducing underarm sweat. The miraDry system delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands reside, which heats the sweat glands and eliminates them for good. Alternative options, including antiperspirants and toxins, only temporarily disable the sweat glands, requiring repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. miraDry is the only treatment that provides lasting results in a non-invasive way. During the procedure, the underarms are numbed and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. On average, patients describe the discomfort as about a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest). You should notice reduction in sweat immediately after treatment.
