Welcome the Future with the Most Advanced Laser Removal Technology to Help Remove Radiation Tattoos

Sacramento, CA, October 8, 2015 — In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sacramento dermatologist, Dr. Tanghetti is offering breast cancer survivors a chance to erase the past with PicoSure®, the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser for tattoo removal.

“Survivors who have received radiation treatment are all too familiar with that small blue or black tattoo on their skin, which radiologists use to define the treatment area,” explains Dr. Tanghetti.  “For many breast cancer survivors, deciding to have their radiation tattoo removed is one of the final steps to full recovery.”

Dr. Tanghetti of Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery will be offering free radiation mark removal for cancer patients 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 PressureWaveâ„¢ technology.

An unparalleled breakthrough in tattoo removal technology, PicoSure’s PressureWaveâ„¢ 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 Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery 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®.
