New Laser Blasts Away Tattoo Ink


For as long as there have been tattoos, there have been people wanting to remove them.

Cheryl L. Effron, M.D., Founder and Director of Cosmetic Dermatology of Orange County is proud to announce that she is one of the first doctors in the country to offer the new PicoSure Laser treatment.  Tattoo removal is now possible for all colors with only a few treatments.  Older technology only treated select colors and ten plus treatments were necessary.

What makes this laser unique in that it delivers ultra-short pulses of light energy (in trillionths of a second) offering fast, precise clearing of the tattoo ink.  The laser is used to literally break the ink up rather than heating the ink and surrounding skin.

Laser tattoo procedures have increased over 30 percent in the last year.  Concerns over employment and regret over a tattoo have made tattoo removal an important treatment in the dermatologist’s office.

“It is very exciting when a brand new technology is offered that truly changes the way we look at treatment modalities,” explains Dr. Effron.  “We are proud to be on the cutting edge of this technology.”
