TORONTO, Oct. 2, 2014 /CNW/ - In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to commemorate breast cancer survivors and their courageous battles, Precision Laser Tattoo Removal is offering survivors a chance to start afresh with the PicoSure® or MedLite C6 lasers 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 Mike McLaine. "We've been approached in the past to remove these markings, usually as a final step of the recovery process. We think removing these markings free of charge is a small token we can offer in light of the suffering already incurred by these patients."
PicoSure Goes Pink is a philanthropic campaign offering free radiation mark removal for cancer patients. Precision Laser Tattoo Removal 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 PressureWave™ technology. The MedLite C6 laser may be used for darker skinned patients.
Precision Laser Tattoo Removal are proud to be the first to offer services using the PicoSure® laser in Ontario. An unparalleled breakthrough in tattoo removal technology, PicoSure's PressureWave™ 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 studies1, 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 Precision Laser Tattoo Removal 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.
