Tattoo Removal – Tatt2Away02.07.19

So what are the risks of laser removal? When you get a tattoo, the ink is injected into the dermis layer of your skin where it soaks into fibroblast skin cells and become permanent, similar to a scar. This is the reason skin art can last for a lifetime. As long as the pigment particles stay in these skin cells, they do not seem to affect the bodys health. But what happens to that ink when its subjected to laser treatments?

A particle can have safe components in its chemical structure when it was injected, but when you hit it with a laser, youve turned it into something else youve basically cooked it. You break it into smaller byproducts and its those byproducts that really are of concern. Dr. Jeffery L. Deal, Medical Director, Rejuvatek Medical

Laser treatment has other risks as well. If not applied correctly, the heat from the laser can burn and scar the skin. Blistering, swelling, infection, and changing of the skins normal pigmentation are other possible side effects.

The biggest drawback to laser treatment is that is theres no guarantee it will work. Multiple treatments will be required and the number of sessions isnt something that can be predetermined during an initial consultation. While an average six to 10 treatments might be accurate, its possible that the number will be much higher depending on the design, color, and location of the tattoo and variation of skin pigmentation. Even then, many colors will still be visible.

Most laser tattoo procedures are done in a medical clinic by highly trained technicians, or by a professional dermatologist. This means that in most cases, tattoo studios cant offer laser tattoo removal even if they wanted to.

Tatt2Away puts tattoo removal into the hands of trained and certified tattoo artists. Unlike laser, Tatt2Away works with the bodys natural healing process to form an eschar or dry scab that lifts pigment out of the skin. When the scab is gone (14 to 21 days), so is the ink. Best of all, the process is effective on all colors of ink its colorblind.

My Tattoo Removal Experience The Writing Life of Jessica Halsey02.07.19

Im going to preface this post with a statement that may seem contrary to its title:


Ever since I was a little girl, like old enough to process what pictures were, I wanted tattoos. Most girls wanted American Girl and Barbie dolls. I wanted GI-Joe and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And tattoos. I drew on myself, to the misery of my mother and teachers, every chance I got. The other kids thought I was weird. Whatever.

I tell you this to illustrate how much I love tattoos. I love looking at tattoos, mine and other peoples, and I love getting tattoos and watching tattoo artists work on other people.

The only thing I dont like about tattoos is the healing time. Mr. J can heal a tattoo, no matter how big, within a week. I take 2+ weeks because my skin is useless. But other than that, I love tattoos.

In 2016 I came to one of those life crossroads that either yield great rewards or completely fuck you over. (The last one was in 2006so once every 10 years this happens I guesswhen I married my ex-husband.) Go into the medical field and remove my most favorite visible tattoo or keep the tattoo and risk future shitty retail jobs and/or unemployment.

At that time I was tired of following the same career paths I had been stomping down and I wanted to do something that would make me feel more useful to society and be a few steps up from an entry level job in a department store or office.

My previous jobs have included: teaching, retail, various positions in libraries on the East Coast, truck driving along the West Coast, and market research. None of these things were particularly lucrative, emotionally gratifying, or economically stable.

So I decided to become a phlebotomist. Why? Because I am was scared to death of needles and I make it my mission in life to run towards things Im afraid of.

I enrolled in a phlebotomy training course at a local clinic and guess whatI fucking love phlebotomy. Its the funnest thing Ive ever done. And Im pretty good at it too. Sure, Ive missed veins before, everyone misses veins. But for the first time ever I thought to myself: I could do this for the rest of my life and be happy.

Heres the down side: most medical facilities, especially ones in the American South where I currently live, discourage visible tattoos. I have noticed that hand tattoos are becoming more and more acceptable depending on the facility/clinic.

But heres the thing: I had a tattoo on my neck. But not just on my neck, under my chin. You know that space where your lower jaw and your neck meet? That really, really tender spot? Yeah, I got a tattoo there.

Yes, employers are now more tolerant than ever of visible tattoos in the workplace.

Yes, the tattoo artist who did the work said, Thats a job stopper. And I said I was fine with that because I was convinced I would hate every job I ever worked at because my real job was writing and Id never get paid to write poetry so what the fuck ever. (I know, real mature.)

But I still got passed over for jobs, irregardless of whether my tattoos were covered up or not, because the boss knew they were there and that was enough.

Yes, there is makeup to cover up visible tattoos. I personally dont wear makeup (ok maybe mascara once in a blue moon). I experimented with multiple brands. Kay Von Dees tattoo cover up is NOT that great. I had to apply 5 or 6 layers to hide all the color (But thats my skin, it might work great for you). The best cover up makeup I found was Merle Normans extreme cover up foundation. Its a close cousin to stage makeup and very effective at covering scars, birth marks, and even my tattoo, I only needed 2 or 3 layers to hide it completely but I felt so gross wearing it. It was like I had to walk around with slime smeared under my chin all day and was constantly smearing it, even with setting spray it would melt down my neck and into my shirt collars. I even had a boss tell me to wash it off because I looked sick or had something wrong with me.

It might seem shallow to prefer something as drastic and painful as tattoo removal treatments instead of putting up with a little bit of makeup discomfort but in my mind the tattoo removal treatments are more temporary that applying mounds and mounds of makeup for the rest of eternity. My choice. (And having runny makeup when youre trying to prep a sterile field is not very professional.)

Before 2016 I didnt really care that I was working in dead end jobs and living from paycheck to paycheck. But I reached the decision that I didnt want to struggle financially any more and I wanted to have a day job that I could take pride in and, more importantly, enjoy.

So after 6 years of having a tattoo under my chin and putting up with people either going WOW! or WTF? whenever they saw me, I decided to bite the bullet and get it removed so that I could have a better chance at getting a phlebotomy job.

In addition to the job thing, there were also a lot of personal elements between myself and Mr. J, which I will not go into. When I described the situation to one of my former co-workers, he made this analogy: Its like the motorcycle you give up when you want to have kids.

I wouldnt be that extreme, in my opinion a motorcycle is way more valuable than a tattoo but yes, thats it. You can use your imagination to fill in the gaps. Mr. J. and I had several adult conversations about adult things and I have learned that it really sucks being an adult but sometimes you just have to buck up and be an adult.

So thats what I did.

My first tattoo removal treatment was May 23, 2016. Since then Ive had 12 laser treatments using 3 different lasers.

Picosure (5 treatments)

Enlighten (4 treatments)

Lumenis PiQo4 (3 treatments)

I had my treatments done at a Dermatology clinic. I had a consultation with the doctor and all of my treatments were facilitated by either certified laser technicians or medical assistants.

Treatments 11:

Lumenis PiQo4

Wavelength: 532

Fluence: 1.5 j

Pulse Energy: 5 pps

Pulse Duration: 800 ps

Spot Size: 5 mm

Treatment 12:

Lumenis PiQo4

Wavelength: 1064

Fluence: 2.7 j

Pulse Energy: 10 pps

Pulse Duration: 800 ps

Spot Size: 10 mm

The Picosure worked better than I expected it would but the results werent as impressive as the other lasers.

The Enlighten demolished all the black ink like it was going out of style. Serious pigment eating action here.

The Lumenis PiQo4 removes the most color out of all three lasers.

Later this year Im going back to have one more treatment done to get rid of the remaining shadow.

Getting a tattoo removed feels like hot oil spitting up from a pan and burning you. Its tiny little burns in a concentrated area. Depending on the lasers settings, the burning sensation can be mild or severe.

For most of my treatments I chose to use lidocaine injections to numb the site because:

1. Im tough but not that tough

2. I wanted the laser to be on the highest settings possible

As seen in Table 1, the laser settings changed depending on the laser and how much ink was left over. In the beginning stages and whenever they switched from one laser to another, the techs turned the settings down so they wouldnt burn me. I really appreciated that.

And now, if you really want to see them, heres some pictures of the blistered, scabby healing process(under the cut for sensitive eyes)

My tattoos and tattoo removal process and motivations were unique to me (how much color ink, my skins reactions, etc.) and may not be your situation. If youre thinking about removing a tattoo, do your research, keep an open mind, and do what the laser tech tells you to do.

The white discolorations are called frosting and happen when the ink pigments react to the laser. Sadly, this does not turn the pigments white and the frosting fades after a few hours and then everything becomes a red, swollen mess.

The most difficult part of this process was the healing. Once the numbing effects of the lidocaine wore off my chin was swollen for at least 3 days and itchy (blisters and scabbed areas healing) for 5 to 7 days. As you can see in the very last photo, there was also some bruising but that came from the injections rather than the laser itself.

Laser Tattoo Removal – Little Rock, AR – Dr. Suzanne Yee02.07.19

If you have a change of heart about a tattoo, Dr. Suzanne Yee, MD, F.A.C.S., offers lasertattoo removal at her Little Rock, AR,practice. The laser can safely break apart pigmented molecules so that your body can safely and gradually absorb them. Over time, the treatment can drastically reduce the appearance of your unwanted tattoo. Contact our office to schedule an appointment and find out if you are a candidate for laser tattoo removal.

If you are embarrassed by a tattoo, or if you feel that it no longer fits your personality, you may be a good candidate for laser tattoo removal. The treatment can also help if you have previously tried to remove your tattoo with other less advanced techniques. Laser tattoo removal is often most effective on dark-colored ink. However, thanks to advances in technology, laser tattoo removal can successfully reduce stubborn pigments, such as red and orange ink.

To qualify for tattoo removal, you should be in good health with no history of skin cancer or infection. If you have skin that scars easily, this treatment may not be a good option, as the resulting blemishes may be unsightly. For qualified patients, however, laser tattoo removal is safe and effective.

To reduce the appearance of your tattoo, you will need to undergo multiple treatment sessions. The exact number will depend on the size and color of your tattoo, as well as the way that you respond to the procedure. Before performing laser tattoo removal, Dr. Yee will apply a numbing gel or other topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, she will apply pulses of laser energy to your skin. The laser will break apart the ink molecules in the deeper layers of your skin without affecting the surrounding tissues. Immediately after laser tattoo removal, you may experience some slight redness and irritation. However, you should be able to return to work and your regular activities right away. You can control any irritation with ice packs and non-prescription pain medication.

Tattoo Removal | Santa Rosa, CA02.07.19

What once seemed like a good idea can suddenly feel like a curse. That cute little tattoo of a heart on your foot, or the butterfly on your lower back, may no longer represent the professional, mature adult that you have become. Tattoo removal can sound promising, but the long and painful process is still intimidating for many. Now patients in Napa Valley have a brand new, safe, and highly effective option for tattoo removal at Plastic Surgery Associates.

Dr. Heather Furnas and Dr. Francisco Canales are excited to bring the PicoWay tattoo removal treatment to Plastic Surgery Associates. PicoWay is unlike traditional tattoo removal systems, which often resulted in a semi-effective ink breakdown. Using the latest in laser technology, PicoWay gently delivers intense, precise energy to the tattoo ink, shattering it into tiny, dust-like particles. These pieces are then naturally washed away and removed by the body. Most any tattoo can be successfully removed using the PicoWay, even those with blue or green ink, or those that were resistant to previous removal attempts.

The best candidate for the PicoWay tattoo removal procedure, at Plastic Surgery Associates, will be someone who fully understands the treatment process and is committed to the recovery requirements. Ideally, patients will be over 18 years old and in overall good health. It is important that anyone interested in tattoo removal have realistic expectations for their results. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales will schedule a patient consultation prior to beginning treatment.

Plastic Surgery Associates offers a complimentary in-person or online consultation for anyone considering tattoo removal at our Santa Rosa office. At this time, Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas will take a few minutes to get to know the patients aesthetic desires. A skin and tattoo assessment will be performed, and a brief medical history will be taken. Finally, the PicoWay tattoo removal system will be explained in detail, including the benefits and potential complications. If it is determined that tattoo removal is right for the individual patient, a detailed treatment plan will be created; the exact cost of the procedure will be established at this time, as well.

Each tattoo removal session will be performed in a private, comfortable treatment room at Plastic Surgery Associates. During the session, the provider will swiftly and steadily pass the handheld PicoWay laser across the targeted tattoo. Most procedures will last only a few minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. While the tattoo removal process is not considered painful, there may be some discomfort. Patients can request a topical anesthetic prior to their treatment.

Depending on the tattoo, more than one treatment is normally required. The PicoWay laser is able to remove all colors of tattoo ink faster than more traditional lasers, however most people will need between three and six sessions for optimal results.

The recovery from a tattoo removal treatment at Plastic Surgery Associates will take only a few days. During the initial 24-48 hours, patients should refrain from vigorous exercise or activity, so as not to irritate the treatment area. Patients should wear loose clothing for a few days to prevent unwanted rubbing. Excessive sun exposure should be avoided, as this could cause discoloration of the treatment area. Mild blistering at the treatment site is not uncommon. If this does occur, blisters should be left to dissolve on their own.

The time has come to get rid of that unwanted tattoo, once and for all.

If you are uncomfortable or unhappy with an unwanted tattoo, schedule a consultation at Plastic Surgery Associates. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales have been serving the Napa Valley area for more than 20 years. They have unmatched experience in both cosmetic and surgical procedures for the face, neck, and body. Contact our Santa Rosa office at 707.537.2111 for more information on the exceptional results that come with the cutting-edge PicoWay tattoo removal technology.

*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary

Plastic Surgery Associates brings patients PicoWay, the latest in laser technology for safe and efficient tattoo removal. PicoWay utilizes ultra short pulses of energy to effectively break down tattoo pigments, allowing them to be removed by the body.

PicoWay allows for faster results that the more traditional methods of tattoo removal. On average, depending on the individual tattoo, between three and six sessions are normally required.

Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales suggest waiting at least six weeks between tattoo removal sessions. This gives the body time to break down and remove ink; coming in sooner will not speed up the process.

Yes, tattoos that were treated previously, with little success, can be removed with the PicoWay technology. The innovative laser can erase tattoos with any color ink, even hard to treat blue/green.

Physical activity should be limited for the first 24-28 hours after a tattoo removal session. This is to protect the treatment area from irritation. Sun exposure should be avoided until the treatment area has completely healed.

Laser Tattoo Removal Atlanta Duluth Georgia GA | Laser Lights02.07.19

Performed at our Duluth, GA medical office, north of Atlanta.

Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center in Duluth, GA (suburb of Atlanta) offers lasertattoo removal of all colors including green, which is often the most difficult color to remove. Laser Lights laser tattoo removal equipment is FDA approved and safe for all skin types. Most tattoos can be removed within a few treatments depending on the color of the tattoo. Laser tattoo removal treatments are typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and the number of treatments necessary is determined by the amount, type, color, and depth of tattoo ink.

Tattoos are meant to be permanent, so removing them is difficult. Few guarantee complete removal, but there are several methods Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center employs that have proven effective. The degree of remaining color variations or blemishes depends upon tattoo size, location, the tattoo removal patients ability to heal, and how/ when the tattoo was applied. For example, a tattoo applied by a more experienced artist may be easier to remove since the pigment was evenly injected in the same level of the skin. New tattoos may also be more difficult to remove than old ones because tattoos tend to gradually fade naturally over time. Accurate laser treatment plans can only be devised once a patient undergoes a cosmetic laser consultation.

How does laser tattoo removal work if tattoos are meant to be permanent?Tattoos are permanent because an insoluble ink is injected into thedermis, or middle layer of the skin. This is why they remain visible and are not absorbed by the body.Laser tattoo removaluses wavelengths of light targeted toward the specific pigments in each tattoos ink which break the ink into tiny particles that the body can absorb. From there, the minuscule particles are disposed of through the bodys natural healing responses.

What are the risks or side effects of laser tattoo removal?With any laser procedure there is a rare chance of hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation if pre- and post-treatment care instructions are not followed properly. Even less common procedure risks include blistering, infection, or scabbing. Individuals taking certain over-the-counter medications and supplements may experience bruising. Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Centers providers are expertly trained, licensed, and experienced, making these rare side effects even more infrequent..

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?Atlanta laser tattoo removal pricingis dependent how many treatments are necessary to remove a tattoo. Many factors influence the number of treatments needed including the size of the treatment area, the colors in the tattoo, if the ink is layered, a persons skin tone, and among others.

How many treatments are necessary to remove my tattoo?As mentioned above, there are multiple factors that go into laser tattoo removal including the patients skin type, the location of the tattoo, the pigments in the tattoo, the size of the body art, if there is any scarring or tissue change, and if the tattoo is layered over another. These factors are all elements in theKirby-Desai Tattoo Removal Scale.

Who is a candidate for laser tattoo removal?IdealDuluth laser tattoo removalcandidates are individuals who are in generally good health with realistic expectations regarding the procedures outcomes. Although all skin tones and types can be treated at Laser Lights, those with fair skin and darker tattoos usually have the best results. Nonetheless, the majority of patients with tattoos benefit from laser tattoo removal.

What does laser tattoo removal feel like?The rapid pulses of laser energy used in laser tattoo removal feel different to each patient. Just as getting atattoois often uncomfortable, laser tattoo removal can cause some discomfort. To ease any uncomfortable sensations, your provider may recommend taking an acetaminophen pain reliever (as other pain relievers thin blood and cause bruising), or use a numbing cream before your treatment to make the procedure more tolerable.

Tattoo Removal Information – Do I have a Tattoo Infection …02.07.19

Experts estimate that about half of all people who get tattoos later regret their decision. In the past, these people had little recourse aside from expensive and painful invasive surgery. However, new laser removal techniques are helping people of all ages rid themselves of tattoos they no longer want on their bodies.

Free Tattoo Infection Lawsuit Evaluation: If you or a loved one developed a skin infection or other injury after getting a tattoo, you should contact our law firm immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a lawsuit and we can help.

Tattoos are meant to be permanent, so removing them can be an extremely difficult process. Few dermatologic surgeons guarantee complete removal. However, there are a number of ways to remove tattoos that have proven to be considerably effective. The amount of remaining color and/or blemish depends on the size and location of the tattoo, as well as the individuals ability to heal. The exact degree of removal is difficult to predict because tattoo inks and dyes are unregulated and may contain any number of different ingredients.

Before lasers began being used in the late 1980s, tattoo removal involved one or more of the following painful, scar-inducing surgical techniques:

Although the above-listed procedures are still used in rare cases today, lasers have become the first-line treatment for tattoo removal because they offer a low risk, bloodless alternative with few potential side effects. Laser tattoo removals are performed on an outpatient basis in a single or series of visits.

Lasers began being developed for industrial uses in the 1960s. When scientists created lasers that emitted short flashes of light called pulses, medical use became possible. These types of lasers can effectively remove tattoos with a low risk of scarring. The type of laser used to remove a tattoo depends on what pigments and dyes were used to create the art: yellow and green are typically the most difficult to remove, while blue and black are usually the easiest. The 3 lasers developed specifically for tattoo removal use a technique called Q-switching, which refers to the lasers high-energy light pulses:

Unfortunately, both getting tattoos and having them removed can be quite painful, even with laser surgery. The impact of energy from laser light pulses has been described as the feeling of hot bacon grease on your skin or being snapped by a rubber band. Because black tattoo inks absorb all laser wavelengths, they are easiest to remove. Other colors such as green selectively absorb laser light, and can only be treated by selected lasers based on the dye color.

Side effects of laser tattoo removal may include:

The Product Liability Litigation Group at our law firm is an experienced team of trial lawyers that focus on the representation of plaintiffs in Tattoo Lawsuits. We are handling individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new skin infection cases in all 50 states.

Laser Sun Spot Removal

Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of areas of skin, caused by increased melanin. Melanin is a term used to describe groups of pigment. Concentrated melanin creates a darker skin tone; however, high UV radiation exposure is associated with an increased risk of skin conditions such as melanoma, or cancer of the skin.Hyperpigmentation is the term that describes sun spots, age spots, and liver spots. There are different types of pigmentation that occur on the skin of the body and face. They can be caused by sun damage, hormones, medication, trauma, skin diseases and also the natural aging process.

The customized treatment plan developed by Indy Laser will be determined at your Free Consultation! The nature and depth of the pigmentation is considered, as well as the skin type to determine the safest and most effective Pigmentation Removal method. Indy Lasers Sun Spot Removal is often combined with microdermabrasion, and chemical peels to obtain optimal results.

Laser Skin Tightening

At Indy Laser we offer a non-surgical facelift. Our lasers stimulate new collagen growth deep beneath the surface of the skin. Laser Skin Tightening reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Laser Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a highly-effective and virtually painless technique to resurface the skin. It reveals the youthful and radiant complexion of the skin by stimulating the production of the new skin cells by using fine mineral crystals to exfoliate the outer keratin layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion is so gentle that there is no recovery period or discomfort. This treatment is most often performed on the skin of the face, neck, and chest.

DermaSweep Resurfacing

DermaSweep goes beyond microderm by exfoliating while simultaneously delivering a topical treatment. Our state of the art system uses 7 combinations of treatment tip sizes. This system cleans pores and increases blood flow, which encourages collagen formation. After this exfoliation, SkinFusions are applied to the skin. Results are noticed after just one treatment.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is used to improve the quality and texture of the skin on the face by causing dead skin to exfoliate off by applying a liquid solution. This treatment is recommended once every four to eight weeks. The treatment is finished in less than an hour.

During your free consultation a full skin analysis will be used to determine which type of chemical peel will be best for addressing your skin concerns.

Myofascial Release Therapeutic Massage

Fascia is three-dimensional connective tissue that supports our entire body. It should be fluid-like. Trauma, inflammation, disease, repetitive strain, as well as other influences can cause fascia to become solidified. If this happens, it results in pressure on nerves, muscles and accentuates overall pain.Fascia makes up approximately 80% of our bodies and surrounds all muscles, bones, and organs. Other types of massage therapy focus on muscles and bones that only make up about 20% of our tissue. Myofascial Release Therapy really works with the body.

The Tattoo Runner Live long, Run on, Plant strong02.07.19

I was born andbred in the coastal town of Bundaberg, Queensland, growing up and living with Mum, Dad and my Sister. Throughout school, I enjoyed all sports and gave everything a crack, especially running.

Upon finishing high school, I was an exchange student in Finland and then completed a year touring Australia in a Youth for Christ band, performing outreach concerts to high school kids and churches. I then returned to Bundaberg for a year and married my love, Tegan. After this, we moved to Brisbane and lived, worked and made music for 5-6 years. I had dabbled a little in long distance running in the past, however it wasnt until around 2007 that I really took an interest in the long run. This was mainly inspired by my Dad, Stewy who had been running marathons and half marathons for close to 10years at that time. I completed my first marathon in Toowoomba at the end of 2007.

At the end of 2007, I was successful in joining the Queensland Police Service, attended the Oxley Academy and was sworn in as a Police officer on the 25th of June, 2008. I was then posted back to Bundaberg, my old stomping ground. Upon returning to work and live in Bundaberg, I washeavily involved in the local community, promoting the Police Service, fitness and generally spreading my love for life through the town.

I had well and truly caught the running bug by this stage and enjoyed the discipline of training and racing. There was to be a slight hiccup along the way though, when in 2009, I found out I had a tumor on my pituitary gland (base of brain) and had to have major brain surgery. This hurdle was tackled one step at a time with my loving family. To get myself back on track, I aimed to and completed a half marathon at the Gold Coast only a couple of months after surgery. Another miracle after the tumour was that Tegan and I had our first child, Pria at the end of that year.

During the time living in Bundaberg, Iloved training with Dad and wanted to organize something big to try and make a difference. Dad had had Prostate Cancer a couple of years prior, so I decided to organize a fundraising run from Bundaberg to Brisbane and back again, thus the creation of Run Man Run. In September 2009, Dad and I ran the distance with our support crew in tow in 21 days, covering just over 500km each in that time.

After this event, my intrigue grew in relation to ultra marathons (any distance further than a standard 42.2km marathon), and particularly ultra trail running. Around this time, I also read Dean Karnazes book, Ultramarathon Man and I was IN! I then began training for and competing in these long long events. I regularly train between 100 200km per week. To date, I have competed in five half marathons, nine full marathons, and over 30 ultra marathons. These ultra events have ranged from 53km to 320k. Some of these have included Coast 2 Kosci, The North Face 100k, a self organised 200mile run to the Sunshine Coast, Glasshouse 100mile run (161km), Buffalo Stamped Grand Slam and over 100k on a track (numerous times) at Relay for Life. I have also completed the Gold Coast Marathon completely barefoot. I have been interviewed for newspapers, been featured in YouTube clips and am a regular guest on the Coach Jeff Podcast.

Upon taking up trail running, someone, somewhere called me The Tattoo Runner. This name caught on (for some reason or another?!) and has stuck ever since.

Another of my passions is a thirst for knowledge in relation to diet and improving my running and health through this channel. I have a growing concern for the welfare of animals and their upbringing. I currently fuel my adventures on a completely plant based diet.

At the start of 2013, I resigned from the Police and decided to explore life and chase the dream. Tegan and I also had our second daughter, Corle. I am now expanding my knowledge of health, nutrition, wellness, looking for more ways to love life and training more than ever. We are living in a beautiful little surfers shack at Bargara Beach, enjoying the sunshine, each others company and life in general. At the end of 2016 one of my long time dreams came true and we started our cafe, The Journey. In a laneway off Bauer St Bargara, that is generally where you will find me if I am not out running!

My addiction to long distance running has continued to flourish and the lure of seeing how far I can go continues to intrigue me. I also have a fascination with the bodys movement and experimenting with different footwear. I have massive goals for my running and desire to continue to push my bodies boundaries. I have many runs I dream of taking part in, both in Australia and Internationally. The continual search and striving for the limits of my endurance continues.

You can follow my blog here to keep up with my adventures, training and other things I am passionate about. You can also read more about my diet here and my achievements to date here. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my tales of adventure and activism!

Laser Tattoo Removal in New Jersey from The Dermatology Group02.06.19

Home | Cosmetic Dermatology | Laser Sunspot Removal & Tattoo Removal

Brown spots


Pigmented lesions

The Dermatology Group offers an advanced laser treatment for sun spot and tattoo removal. In New Jersey, men and women frequently choose this procedure to fade the appearance of unwanted tattoos, or to improve the look of brown spots or other pigmented lesions.

Our board-certified physicians welcome your questions regarding laser tattoo removal in New Jersey. If you have additional questions or would like to speak with one of our board-certified dermatologists, call (973) 571-2121.

Lasers have become an efficient method of tattoo and sun spot removal over the last several years. By targeting the skin with short bursts of intense light, the laser breaks the unwanted pigment into smaller particles, which are then eliminated naturally through normal body processes. A series of sessions (anywhere between 1 and 10) is normally required but will depend on the color and size of the area to be treated.

To ensure the most effective treatment, your tattoo or sun spot will be examined by a physician who will recommend the correct laser settings.

The Dermatology Group uses the Cutera Enlighten III Picosecond laser for tattoo and sun spot removal. Enlighten III combines multiple wavelengths (1064 nm, 532 nm and 670 nm) and picosecond + nanosecond pulse durations (750/660 ps + 2 ns) in a single platform for the treatment of unwanted multicolor tattoos, epidermal and dermal pigment, and skin revitalization across all skin types.

During your treatment, you will be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser energy. A topical or local anesthetic may be requested prior to treatment for enhanced comfort. A hand piece is placed against the skin as the laser emits short pulses of light. Sometimes a slight stinging sensation or light “snap” against the skin is felt during the procedure, but this is not usually uncomfortable. This process may take a few minutes to 1 hour, depending on the area treated.

Superficial sun spots on the face, hands and body generally fade away within a few weeks after a single treatment session. “Caf au lait” spots, large moles, and lesions with deeper pigment often take several sessions to disappear completely. Most tattoo colors can be effectively treated; however, blue or green ink is often less responsive to the laser light.

The treated areas typically develop mild crusting or bruising that diminishes within 1 2 weeks. You may be given an anti-bacterial ointment or bandage to protect the skin while it heals. It’s best to avoid sun exposure, if possible, because the skin will be photosensitive.

With the MedLite ND: YAG laser used by the professionals at The Dermatology Group, laser tattoo removal is very safe. The MedLite laser poses little risk for scarring because of its ability to selectively target tattoo and skin pigments without harming nearby tissues. Additionally, all laser tattoo and spot removal procedures are overseen by one of our board-certified physicians to ensure that your procedure is performed accurately.

Additional laser procedures available from The Dermatology Group include laser vein removal and laser skin resurfacing. These treatments can improve the appearance of broken capillaries and varicose veins, as well as lessen the look of lines and wrinkles.
