Referred to us by his daughter this male client had a 30 year old, black India Ink, tear drop tattoo located near his eye area. Special safety considerations are applied for eye protection and numbing was included for a pain free experience.

After picture:
Only 1 treatment needed! Older inks with a carbon base like India Ink can remove in fewer treatments, 1-4 as an average. Redness and swelling will be gone in a few days. To say the client was happy with his initial results is an understatement.

Accidental
Accidental

These photos are of a male client involved in a motorcycle accident in Mexico. Glass cut into his face, dirt and asphalt left its mark. The wound was not properly cleaned and resulted in a traumatic tattoo. The scar will remain, but is less noticeable without the dark color accenting it. Typically we can also reduce the elevation and texture of the scar. This patient required only one laser treatment.

Bicycle Accident
Bicycle Accident

Male triathlete client was involved in a bicycle accident that left road grime or road rash deeply imbedded at the ankle area. It took two laser sessions to eliminate the color of the accidental tattoo. We are treating more female athletes ankles, knees, and elbows. Sliding into home base is a common cause of traumatic tattoos.

Fan Accident
Fan Accident

A young women who had dirt and grime that went into the skin after a ceiling fan came loose hitting her across the face. The wound healed over the waxy debris that collects on fan blades, resulting in a traumatic tattoo. She came to us after being told several times “excuse me, you have something on your face.” One photo shows the before treatment, and the other shows immediately after only one laser treatment. The skin will be healed within a week or sooner.

Finger Accident

Now as a new bride to be, she wanted her hands to look good for the wedding pictures. The area was numbed prior to the laser removal for her comfort. We saw an immediate result. She is happy and so are we.
