Dr. Saini participates in the American Society of Laser Medicine Surgery New Beginnings program – a national campaign to provide free laser treatments to remove radiation tattoos for cancer patients.
Using the Q-Switched Ruby laser, black, blue, brown and green tattoo pigment can be removed safely and effectively. Topical anesthetic is typically applied to take the edge off. After treatment the area will become crusted and scabbed and has healing takes place over the next week, the tattoo pigment will fade. Multiple treatments, typically 6 for amateur tattoos and over 10 for professional tattoos are generally needed to obtain optimal results. Some pigment in professional tattoos may not respond to treatment.
