It's an honor to assist cancer survivors with the final step of recovery - removing the radiation tattoo from the affected area." - Dr. Sam Ebrahimi.
Encino, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to commemorate breast cancer survivors and their courageous battles, Incredible Veins, Body & Skin is offering survivors a chance to start afresh with PicoSure® by Cynosure.
“For cancer patients who receive radiation treatment, a small blue or black tattoo is applied on their skin to accurately aim the radiation on the affected area,” explains Dr. Sam Ebrahimi. “For many survivors, they decide to have their tattoo removed as the final step to their full recovery.”
PicoSure Goes Pink is a philanthropic campaign offering free radiation mark removal for cancer patients. Incredible Veins, Body & Skin will be utilizing the PicoSure® laser, the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser for tattoo removal, which effectively erases tattoos with fewer treatments and better results. Even tattoos that have been treated previously, but failed to clear can be removed with PicoSure’s patented PressureWaveTM technology.
An unparalleled breakthrough in tattoo removal technology, PicoSure’s PessureWaveTM technology gently delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to the tattoo ink in trillionths of a second without injury to the surrounding skin. This shatters the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. Based on physician studies (1, 2), PicoSure® has proven efficacy on difficult ink colors, as well as previously-treated tattoos, for better clearance with fewer laser treatments and improved recovery time.
Patients who wish to take advantage of this very special offering must simply contact Incredible Veins to schedule a consultation. Patients must provide the physician with an official letter from their oncologist or radiologist approving the removal of any radiation marks or tattoos.
When considering your tattoo removal options, be sure. Be PicoSure®.
