The following is a press release from The Plastic Surgery Group:
The Capital District practice is the only in Upstate NY to offer the most advanced picosecond technology for removing tattoos more effectively and faster than ever before.
Albany, NY (March 7, 2016) – The Plastic Surgery Group, a leading Capital District plastic surgery practice, is excited to announce the availability of the enlighten™ laser by Cutera, Inc. enlighten is the only FDAapproved laser that features dual wavelength and both picosecond and nanosecond pulse durations that effectively and efficiently clear a wide range of tattoo colors, ink compositions and pigment concerns.
While the aesthetics market is continually evolving, so is the technology being used in the industry. enlighten is the next generation of laser systems that uses picosecond bursts to target the ink pigment without spreading it to achieve better tattoo removal clearance in fewer treatment sessions compared to any other laser system on the market today.
There has been a steady incline in the number of patients who come to the Albany, NY practice looking to have their tattoos removed. In fact, in a recent study of 1,000 Americans who are tattooed, 1 in 4 were found to have “tattoo regret” while 4 out of 5 Americans who had tattoo regret actually thought about getting laser tattoo removal.
Until now, laser tattoo removal would require patients to endure 10 plus treatments over the course of 12 years, sometimes even longer, and would leave skin looking scarred and in most cases, a faded outline of the old tattoo would still be visible.
“enlighten is the first tattoo removal technology that I feel confident in telling patients we will be able to remove their tattoo permanently,” said Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore, board certified plastic surgeon and partner at The Plastic Surgery Group. “This stateoftheart system is fast, affordable and the most efficient laser for removing those unwanted tattoos that many of us have today.”
The Plastic Surgery Group is now scheduling complimentary consultations for patients who are interested in exploring options for tattoo removal using the new enlighten laser technology system.
