Current research shows nearly 1 out of every 4 adults sports a tattoo .. and you needn’t look far to spot one. It could be a co-worker, your teller at the bank, a family member, or even you.
With the trend towards inking one’s body, comes another phenomena known as “Tattoo Regret.”
An interesting, entertaining, but somewhat deceptive article by The Associated Press appeared in the Reading Eagle.
A positive component of the article is that it focused on the work of two Board Certified Dermatologists. Board Certified Dermatologists are THE experts on skin and should be the first and only ones to treat any condition of the skin.
One message delivered by the article is misleading. LASER Tattoo Removal does NOT have to be at all painful, certainly not to the point of causing “….marines to pass out unconscious.”
Harriet Comite, Cosmetic Board Dermatologist and her highly trained staff at ADVANCED SKIN CARE & SPA employ the AlexTriVantage™ by Candela, the gold standard of state of the art LASER systems for Tattoo Removal.
Dr. Comite was the first in the region to use LASERS in her dermatology practice and has successfully done so since 1996.
The Candela system is less painful and requires less recovery time than some other treatment methods. Most patients do not require pain management. In some cases, however, depending on the nature and location of the tattoo, the physician and patient may elect to use an anesthetic as simple as the application of a topical numbing cream.
Candela notes that patients with previously treated tattoos may be candidates for the Candela systems. Tattoos that have not been effectively removed by other treatments may respond well to Candela LASER therapy
