Acne leave behind mainly ice-pick or box-car scars. The base of each scar is held down by connective scar tissue. My preferred method is to use a combination of laser treatment and Rejuran Injections to improve the overall texture of the skin. The PicoWay has an attachment called...

Your skin needs time to heal. Attempting to remove a tattoo whilst it is still healing only increases your chance of scarring. Minimally, I would advise four to six weeks between each laser treatment as stacking the treatments too closely together can cause damage instead. You ...

Your skin color will be absorbing the laser energy as well as the tattoo ink. The darker you are, the more melanin you have. This also absorbs the laser energy in addition to the tattoo ink. It is possible to remove your tattoo, except that you may very likely require more sess...

To remove a tattoo is a long drawn out process. The laser remains the best method to remove a tattoo. Several years ago doctors looked at the existing technologies and decided that the Q-Switched Nd-YAg lasers should be considered the gold-standard laser for tattoo removal. ...
