Alan Norton, Brisbane, QLD 2014

 

“The results were amazing!”

I was never judged, frowned upon by the caring staff at MEDILASE as had been the case at other tattoo removal places I had visited.  My tattoos weren’t a mistake, I just needed newer work over the older tattoos that I had. Firstly Medilase prices were totally affordable, secondly I was given lots of personal attention and time, and consulting, and thirdly the treatment was super-fast for me, and the results were amazing. My new tatts are ready to be started!

Kym D. (West End QLD)

 

“Their counselling, care, and professionalism were very important to me.”

My tattoo was put on during a holiday to Asia; the work was a nightmare; which affected my confidence in a big way.  Medilase counselled me about my worries, discussed all alternatives, discussed all the pros and cons, and gave me a very do-able package.  I just felt good about everything – Still got about 6 treatments to go, could be more, and I have realistic expectations, but their care and professionalism about this company were very important to me.

Troy R (Underwood QLD)

 

“As soon as I spoke to Medilase, I felt comforted, less anxious and safe.  They really know their stuff.”

The treatments have been so affordable and really quick as my tattoo is a small one. I’m able to call them 24/7 for any questions I might have, and the clinic is so clean and sterile, calming.  The name on my arm is almost gone, and I’ve had 4 treatments. I’m very grateful for the personalized time I get when I go there.

Rikki P (Valley QLD)

 

“MEDILASE Prices!  ………….. the prices they give you beat everyone else, hands down!”

I was quoted $200 for my tattoo which was quoted as $700 a treatment elsewhere!

I’ve got a family and children and was so distressed that I mightn’t be able to ever afford to get it off.  I’m 3 treatments down now, and each time they’re just so professional!  The treatment is fast, I’m really happy with the results, but the knowledge they have and the prices they give you beat everyone else, hands down!  Rui K (Daisy Hill QLD)

 

“The price was great and the visual result of the fading is a confidence boost for me now.”

Within 5 minutes, I knew I could afford the treatment,  I had saved over $150 by coming to Medilase.  The prices at other places I’d been felt un-doable to me. On arriving I immediately felt calmed and in professional care.  Two treatments down and I’m in a really happy place mentally.  The price was great, and the great visual result of the fading is a confidence boost for me now. I want to join the armed forces, and I’m on the way now.  Malcolm V (Coorparoo QLD)

 

“They gave me a great deal; I have had better results than I ever had!”

I had a few treatments elsewhere in Brisbane, and as it had been so expensive I had to let it go for a few years.  When I rang the MEDILASE clinic, they arranged an appointment to suit my work schedule, they gave me a free consultation, they gave me a great deal, and I started.  I have 4 fairly large tattoos, and I had been charged well over $1000 at the last removal place.  $400 for the 4 sounded too good to be true.  I have had better results than I ever had at the former clinic I went to, and boy! I’m really looked after.  No problems, skin is in great nick too……I’m so grateful I found these guys…  Bryan S (Redlands QLD)

 

“Great service, loads of care and advice;  Old fashion service still exists!

Just wanted my ex’s name off.  It happens!  Great service, loads of care and advice, really affordable, great post care, and always there to answer my questions.  I’ve got a few more treatments to go, Medilase are just so understanding with everything.  Old fashion service still exists!   Thanks heaps.   Sylvia V (Rochdale South QLD)

 

I would like to congratulate Chrisse and her staff for an outstanding 2 day course in  “Certificate of Competency Class 3B Tattoo Removal”.  My wife and I have been in business many years and have learnt the 3 R’s when it comes starting any new venture… Research! Research! Research!!!” “So let me save you the time and effort.” “There is no other organisation in Australia that offers the theoretical knowledge, practical skill, and ongoing back up and training like MEDILASE. There were students from Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast which confirms MEDILASE training is recognised Nationally. FYI Courses book out fast!”  David H, Gold Coast – 26 February 2015

 

Unbelievably good! Blown away by the clearly presented and documented in-clinic course manual. It was just so medical yet so easily understood. I never expected such awesome opportunities for the hands on procedures, right at the beginning of my 2nd day in.

One-on-One was brilliant, I could ask as many questions as I needed. I felt cared for, and I felt the sense of being in the hands of a leading professional in every area of the Tattoo and Removal related industry.  Rhianna M. (Personal Trainer) July 2014

 

Incredible course, with real personal delivery, didn’t have to be held back by a class full of other people. Incredible amount of hands-on. Fast, Effective and medically orientated. The Hands-on was just fantastic.  Mike T. (Tattoo Artist) August 2014

 

Love, loved, loved the real clients, the clinical atmosphere and removing of the unwanted inks. Heaps of legal stuff explained too. I never expected something this good.  Megan H. (Enrolled Nurse) August 2014

 

Top notch course. Really professional as well as precise personal delivery. I would recommend this class to anyone.

Daniel T. (University student) September 2014

 

I had no former training. I was so keen to change my career and be in my own business – Medilase guided me through the right pathways of TAFE medical subjects to get to where I wanted to be. The course is very medically orientated, and I had to study pretty hard. It was just so worth it.

Tegan M. (Admin.Assistant) November 2014

Post inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

YEAH!  TATTOO INK IS GONE,
BUT I CAN STILL SEE THE SHAPE ON THE SKIN?

 

You may have PIH- Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation.

What is Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation?

The medical terminology used for this skin state is called -Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or PIH

What is it exactly? It is described as discoloration of the skin that follows an inflammatory skin condition, treatment or even wound.

IT IS NATURAL GUYS!  It is the skin’s repair system and natural response to inflammation.

So, what does it look like?

PIH aka Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation will appear on the skin after the scab or inflammation has healed and you may see a slightly elevated or even flattish area on the skin where that inflammation was.  Call it a “macule” if you wish.

Yes, and it has a colour range which can be anywhere from tones of purple, red, deep pink and in particular brownish tones. The discolouration depends on your genetic skin type and the depth of the hyperpigmentation.

At Medilase Laser Tattoo Removal Brisbane you have the opportunity to undergo micro-needling which is preparatory to the laser treatment, this minimizes both PIH and scarring possibilities.  Our protocol is unique and assists in additional ink being released.

Why has it happened to me?

PIH may affect all persons, and all races, and both female and male.  No one really misses out here.  It will be more pronounced in persons with medium skin tones to darker, and especially with mixed race, and Skin types 3, 4 and 5.

As your skin began to heal, your cells have gone into override and over produced the melanin which is the protein element in your skin which lays down your very own skin color.

The PIH which looks like the tattoo shape after all the inks have gone is a result of your immune response, which has caused the excess melanin thus darkening and discolouring the skin.

Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane, takes meticulous care to make note of your skin type, make note of the healing as we go along.

Will it eventually go?  There is good news here….read on.

Because your body has produced this melanin, the colour change may remain even after the area has completely healed.  BUT, there are other things you can do to fade it back. Patience? Is the key word here for you, it can take from four and even up to 28 months or so to fade, and sometimes could take longer.

Thank goodness, the PIH in general tends to fade back over the months and over time, even without skin rejuvenation treatments. But time is your friend here.

Usually the darker the melanin compared to the original colour surrounding the area, the longer it might take.  Bigger contrast tones – longer period.

Sometimes it might just need a bit of help along the way.

 

 

Is it a scar?

Yippee!  No it isn’t fortunately

PIH is called “pseudo scarring” because even though it has left a marking, it has not damaged the follicular cells.

HAS YOUR PIH INCREASED DUE TO WORK, CAREER, LIFESTYLE?

80% of our findings and notations at the Medilase Laser Tattoo Removal Brisbane Clinic pertaining to PIH increase relate to work related solutions and products, which may include caustics from concreting, building resins and solvents are guaranteed to increase issues, these include also thinners & turpentine from painters, glue related products from tilers and builders, and excess sun on the treated area. The action of “rubbing” with cloths to remove products stuck on the skin will also guarantee increased PIH.

Monitor your skin for work related products or even lifestyle related products which cause further irritation.

What can I do to help things along?

Products which are topical which may assist.

In all cases, ensure you have consulted with your professional clinicians and/or your GP before venturing to topical creams.

Glycolic Acid based products and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) will over time help the appearance of PIH.  They help move the cells and improve the skins exfoliation.

Your GP or dermatologist may prescribe a stronger AHA treatment.  Give it a go.

Hydroquinone

Hydroquinone blocking the enzyme responsible for melanin production which is the cause of the PIH.

Combinations of Hydroquinone creams are available, once again discuss the option you’re

Topical Retinoids. Azelaic Acid, Retin A, are all products which assist in lightening of the skin, with varying results.

So what might I be able to use to treat this PIH

Clinical Treatments

Considerations from professional clinicians might include Micro needling, microdermabrasion’s or even peels. You will need multiple sessions generally spaced 2 weeks apart, depending upon what you have decided to do of course.  Your professional will advise you.

For very light PIH there are multiple products readily available, as over the counter items, check with your pharmacist.

Prescription medications:  will work even better, perhaps go see your very own dermatologist.

Use sunscreen every day. If you haven’t done so the skin will darken even more.

Discuss any of these options with your dermatologist before proceeding.

Laugh of the week!
‘Laser ….like a little flick of a rubber band’ NO! it bl…….dy doesn’t.

Pain Free! Is Available. Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane offers Numbing Services to all.

  • Did you know that up to 30% of Aussies under the age of 30 have a piece of inked memory art, artistic tattoo on their skins, or simply an ink design on their canvas, and at any one time perhaps around only 18% of that group may be seeking to have a change, by either tattoo removal or simply a fade back?
  • Brisbane Tattoo Removal Salons, and Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane clinics have the facts and figures stacked up in order to help you with your questions.

 

“BACK TO SKIN DEAL? I don’t like the spots? Hah!

  • For Brisbane tattoo removal “enquirers”; both Medilase Tattoo Removals Brisbane clinics and Brisbane Tattoo Removal Salons keep abreast of tattoo removal research; and more than anything else they stay abreast of techniques and improvements on tattoo removal procedures.
  • The apparatus of use for Tattoo Removal is the NDYAG Q SWITCH Laser. There are other wavelength Lasers that are used for Blue and Green Pigments and even Red’s.
  • All light-based treatments are generally most positive when used by licensed and highly experienced clinicians. Remember that word guys, “highly experienced”.

 

”Soooo I don’t like being green. Your website says, you knock out greeeeen dude, in 3 treatments, let’s do it”.
You’ve got a Pico-Bico-Wattsa thingo ????????

 

Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane uses “THE PRN Solu-Patch”

Brisbane Tattoo Removal Salons and sister tattoo removal salons in Brisbane, Medilase Tattoo Removals Brisbane, are involved in the research of ink dispersal and in the R20 tattoo removal using the PRN Solu-Patch which is fluid containing PHMB and Betaine.

This amazing pressure soak on the post procedure, allows for frosting dissipation, reduces biofilm with no adverse effects enabling visible and instant healing to take place.

Infection rates are reduced to 3% using the PRN Solu-Patch as opposed 13% saline.

PHMB is a synthetic compound that is also described as a surfactant. It lifts off debris and suspends it, and reduces skin surface bioburden.

PHMB can be described as a solution that works by dissolving and breaking down the lipopolysaccharide layer (LPS) of the bacteria cell wall to kill off bacteria.

 

“Just take the blue bits off”?

The R20 method of tattoo removal involves waiting 20 minutes while bubbles that have formed in the superficial papillary dermis disperse. The Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane based clinic at Mount Gravatt, and its sister clinic, Brisbane Tattoo Removal Salons, have been using the PRN Solu-Patch for several years with extraordinary results.

Perfluorodecalin is another really exciting innovation newly appearing and designed to dissolve the frosting post removal, allowing retreat almost immediately, rather than waiting 20 minutes.

So it’s not free. Would you pay an additional $150.00 on top of your removal price to have this patch? Perhaps some would not. Perhaps if you wanted 4-5 passes over that tattoo, you certainly would consider it. It’s a movement forwards in the removal Industry, and Medilase Tattoo Removals Brisbane, provides that very specific treatment of the R20 with the PRN Solu-Patch, ask us, we’d love to help you out.

 

Chitter-Chatter Time – what makes us tick and “un-tick”.

What makes us cranky at Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane, and Brisbane Tattoo Removal Salons: disrespectful words about tattoo wearers. I would think twice about going to any tattoo removal business, using the words, “Tattoo regret”.

These are horrible words, and very judgmental on you as the person wearing the ink.

As if we don’t know that we are already unhappy with something. Hmm, why would a company use these words?

Be mindful as you speak to the Laser Removal Clinician

  • Is your removal person qualified?
  • How many tattoos has your qualified Radiation Licensed clinician actually removed?
  • How many years has your removal person, been practicing?
  • Do they actually have any tattoos on them?
  • Have they had any tattoos removed themselves?
  • Are they poo-pooing every other clinician around them, and their equipment?
  • Are they abreast of the post-care?
  • Are they asking too many questions about why you had the tattoo put on?
  • Do they know anything about the “Test Patch”?
  • Have they addressed the word “Clinical Endpoint”?
  • Answers can be onerous for you as the client under their Laser.

 

Medilase tattoo removal Brisbane are tattoo removal specialists and the company has over 25 years in the personal services and light-based treatment Industry and has clocked up 3.5 million sections of removals of ink.

Medilase Tattoo Removal Brisbane is one of the leading training institutions in Australia, Asia, New Zealand and the South Pacific for training and education for Radiation Health Queensland compliant modules and for overseeing and supervising license applicants for their 100 Hours of supervision for removals.

Your Questions Answered by Medilase Tattoo Removals R20 Brisbane

What is the Price of a tattoo removal session at Medilase Tattoo Removals?

Medilase Laser Tattoo Removal wants to make this happen for you. We are never over-priced, or boastful, we simply work with you towards your end goal.

One treatment session may start anywhere from $49.00 at the Medilase Tattoo Removal clinic in Brisbane Queensland. Other factors which determine the pricing is the complexity of the design and how big your tattoo is.

No matter what you read, no one can really advise you about how many sessions you will need, although an average is 7-10. In some cases there may be more sessions required depending on the refraction ability of the embedded ink particles, and the colours, however in some instances, the greyscale will be possibly “gone” after just 1 or 2 treatments.

The research findings from Medilase Tattoo Removals in Brisbane appear to be: the pigments within black tattoos are more easily… SHOW MORE removed than colored tattoos (with blue/green being the most stubborn, and resistant, due to the amount of titanium oxide within the particles or perhaps the mineral used to create the ink).

 

Why do the sessions need to be 4-6 weeks apart?

Once your laser session is completed, the skin and the cells within have undergone a change from their normal state.
The ink fragmentation disperses microscopic shattering’s into the dermal layer and blood system and into the epidermal layer.

The tissues and treated area require to heal therefore another laser treatment should ideally be commenced following cellular renewal.

Cellular Renewal is a shedding phenomenon known as desquamation. This is also defined as the last stage of the function of an epidermal cell. This may take up to 28 days or slightly more in older skins.

Did you know? Your epidermal cells are renewed and replaced thousands of time during your lifetime.

Did you know about your stem cells which are in your skin? They can divide indeterminately.

New Tattoo Care Guide

Congratulations!

You Got a NEW TATTOO!

MEDILASE says –  KEEP THAT NEW TATTOO IN GOOD SHAPE

Is this you?  “I just got a new tattoo – over where I had my former one lasered”

Medilase Laser Tattoo removal – New tattoo Tips:

  

 

These are just simple “small hints” – 

  • Don’t sleep on your tattoo just as when Medilase Laser removed the former one for you
  • Don’t have pressure on the area.
  • Don’t wear clothing that will cause friction blisters, and move the healing layers – this is the most common injury both in Laser tattoo removal, and especially with new ink.
  • Don’t submerge it in water of any kind. New tattoos and laser tattoo removal need new epithelial tissue to heal the disturbed skin cells. Soggy skin loves to move towards an infection and scarring…
  • No soaking in spas, and no swimming for a bit.
  • Fresh air loves new ink, and healing skin with post care in Laser tattoo removal period.
  • Don’t irritate it with “unknown” topical, or some “ooga booga” dressing.

This is constantly an issue with Laser tattoo removal, and often frightening with a new tattoo.  Products that are anti-skin healing are not always disclosed on packaging.

  • Do what your tattooist has advised you to do.
  • Don’t expose it to sunlight.
  • Don’t overwork the area. Give the gym a wee break, or alter your program until your tattoo heals.
  • Treat your new ink as “sacred”. Do not pick, scratch, itch, or touch it at all.
  • Your tattooist has years of experience. Listen to their advice.
  • If you are on a program of Laser Tattoo Removal, with Medilase, knocking out your former ink, for a great new work, bring us your new ink design, and we will work together to eradicate as much ink as possible in the shortest amount of time.
  • Medilase Laser Tattoo Removal specializes in “fade back” technology for a new work or a Re Work of the tattoo. Take a look at our gallery to see some of our work.

 

 

Some everyday and common causes of unwanted infection:

 

  • Contamination from clothing
  • Bacteria or harsh chemicals
  • Weakened immune system
  • Presence of other illnesses or diseases

 

 

Let’s try to take a break and think about things that matter

Let’s try to take a break and think about things that matter!


7th August 2016 – Friendship Day
Friendship Day the first Sunday in August.
(Spanish: Día del Amigo, Portuguese: Dia do Amigo) is a day for celebrating the gift of friendship. Celebrated initially in Paraguay, the first World Friendship Day – International Friendship Day was proposed in 1958.
Thought to have been possibly labeled by the greeting card industry, the day is a time to honor friends and be mindful of the gift of friendship.
The exchange of Friendship Day gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands is a popular tradition of this occasion.
Friendship Day celebrations occur on different dates in different countries.

A friendship bracelet is a bracelet given by one person (friend) to another as a symbol of friendship.

 


12 August 2016 – International Youth Day
International Youth Day is observed annually on 12 August. It is meant to be a reminder and wakeup call as well as an opportunity for all people, including governments, and state organizations to bring attention to youth issues worldwide. During IYD, concerts, workshops, cultural events, and meetings involving national and local government officials and youth organizations take place around the world.
IYD was designated by the United Nations in 1999

2015 International Youth Day: Youth Civic Engagement http://www.un.org/en/events/youthday/

Mexican Youth Build Sculpture for Disarmament: UN Photo/Evan Schneider
On 17 December 1999, in its resolution 54/120, the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth (Lisbon, 8-12 August 1998) that 12 August be declared International Youth Day.
The theme of International Youth Day, 12 August 2015, is “Youth Civic Engagement.” The engagement and participation of youth is essential to achieve sustainable human development. Yet often the opportunities for youth to engage politically, economically and socially are low or non-existent.
There has been recent increasing attention and policy and programming focus on youth civic engagement by governments, UN entities, regional and multilateral organizations, CSOs, youth and researchers. As part of its celebrations for International Youth Day, the Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development, led by the co-chairs, DESA and UNDP, is running an online campaign in the lead up to International Youth Day 12 August 2015.

 


September 21 -The International Day of Peace, World Peace Day
The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September.
A day to contemplate the dedication to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, the key preventive means to reduce war sustainably.
On this day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at UN Headquarters (in New York City). The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents except Africa, and was a gift from the United Nations Association of Japan, as “a reminder of the human cost of war”; the inscription on its side reads, “Long live absolute world peace”.[2]

The Facts on the success of Laser Tattoo Removal according to Medilase Laser Tattoo Removal:

A tattoo is an art piece.  The tattoos and tattoo artists today rate amongst some of the most exquisite that we have ever seen.

Your skin is the canvas and art gallery; it should be remembered that tattoos are not placed within the skin so that they can be easily wiped out!

So let’s look at some facts!

  • Everyone has their own reason for wanting to move ink away.
  • Don’t allow the business to judge you!
  • Ensure the “person” treating you has had years of experience in removals!
  • Did you know that at Medilase, we have over 2.5 million removals under our belt, with new patented procedures such PPE and R2-2?

TATTOO REMOVAL PROMOTIONS CAN SUCK YOU RIGHT IN!  Be Careful.

  • It’s not about how “big, fat and expensive” the Laser is.
  • It’s about the clinician handling the laser handpiece, and about their knowledge of human physiology, the principles of healing, and ink vs skin and microparticle releases into the system.
  • It’s about the fact that they “care about you”.

INK FACTS:

The first and most ancient pigments came from using ground up minerals and carbon black. Today’s pigments include those original mineral pigments, (how fantastic), whilst other inks come from modern industrial organic pigments, plastic-based pigments and a few vegetable-based pigments (don’t be fooled by this, guys, a fully 100% vegetable dye pigment would not stay in your skin, so there are other elements in there).

We have treated thousands of tattoos and “Back-To-Skin” is more than possible with exacting separation between adjoining tattoos, and bringing with it BIG SMILES. Remember not all inks are the same.

There is no QUICK FIX for a tattoo which is meant to “stay on the skin canvas for a lifetime”.

There are excellent clinicians and safe, successful treatments, a mutual understanding that PATIENCE is required, and at Medilase Tattoo Removal, these are the leading priorities for us.

Your removal will be very successful or more challenging due to a number of facts.

These are: the ink quality, ingredient’s and colour of inks used, the ability of your immune system to clear away pigment after it has been treated and begin the FADE!  the depth of the ink, and amount of ink. Other factors do add to this outcome.

If you have multi-coloured professional tattoos, they respond more slowly to laser treatments, and quite a few multi-coloured tattoos will need 10 or more treatment sessions for fading, or re-working. REMEMBER!  They weren’t placed into your skin, so that they could be taken away!
Our friendly inks are in the hues of Dark (blue/black) inks and red inks usually fade well generally. As do oranges and purples.

Our happier dark inks usually respond quicker because they love the laser energy and absorb laser energy better.

Brighter colours such as green, turquoise are tougher, but they do eventually move.

Ingredients that make a tattoo look truly amazing!  These are substances such as iron oxide or titanium dioxide – and these also make it tougher more resistant, and therefore requiring more treatments.

Remember that if you want to change your mind about your fluorescent “Day Glow” pigments ink, that they are not laser friendly.

Some tattoos are now made with dark tar-based ink or “laser resistant ink” and these tattoos (which fortunately are quite rare) – They are meant-to-stay!  5000-year lifetime and more.

Need help and advice, with a great price – Give Medilase a call or send us an email, let us team together to get you where you want with you ink, whether its un-ink, or fade-back, separating, or re-lining your tattoo with a PPE pass, to make it “pop” again.  info@medilase.com.au

Specialized Content for Tropical Climate – Clinicians

Specialized Content for Tropical Climate –  Clinicians

Tropical Climates and infections.

Infection? What is it?

The presence of pathogenic organisms in wounds is classified into four levels:
1.    Contamination – organisms do not cause any host reaction;
2.    Colonisation – organisms multiply or initiate a host reaction;
3.    Critical colonisation – organisms multiply, causing delayed wound healing and usually increased pain but no overt host reaction;
4.    Wound infection – deposition and multiplication of organisms in tissue with an associated host reaction

 

Causes

1.    Direct contact – transfer from equipment or the hands of other persons.
You will always wear gloves, mask, and goggles when treating, and change out gloves where blood is present. Before dressing your clients you will change out gloves totally.  You will always glad wrap or use a dressing kit pre prepared per individual clients.

2.    Airborne dispersal – micro-organisms deposited from the air.
Every single client will leave with a dressing and a cover over the treated area from you premises.  You will list this on the patient’s clinical chart.  What you dressed with, ointment or other, and what you covered with, gauze or other.

3.    Self-contamination – migration from the patient’s skin or gastrointestinal tract.
Read out the post care form before you start.  Give the form to the client.
When sterilizing the patient’s skin before you commence, ensure to sterilize a 4 cm area on the skin surrounding the tattoo to endeavor to minimize contaminations.

4.    Soaking and prolonged immersion in water, swimming, spas, saunas, long periods intense exercise, high activity, where perspiration and sweat are excessive, and thus the disturbed skin on the removal site becomes compromised.
Your post care form will advise against all of the above whilst undergoing treatments.

5.    Further injury to the treatment site, friction from clothing, bumping during sleep, or shoes, ladies bra and tank tops, jeans, etc, general aggravation to the site in the early days of the removal, where blisters are present and no hardened scab has yet presented.

6.    A compromised blood infection already present, or compromised immune system perhaps unknown or perhaps already known, yet not disclosed, when the client presents to you for their removal procedure.

7.    Use of an “unknown topical agent or other” during post care, which is not on your postcare list. The client usually will not tell you.  You must adhere to your Post care advice and protocols.  By Law, you are disallowed to give a diagnosis. Only a Medical Practitioner may give a diagnosis and prescribe according to his diagnosis.

HOW TO BEST ASSIST YOUR BLISTERS TO HEAL after a laser tattoo removal procedure

HOW TO BEST ASSIST YOUR BLISTERS TO HEAL after a laser tattoo removal procedure:

Medilase Laser Tattoo Removals, has thousands of removal procedures “under its belt”, and every procedure on every person is unique and matters to us a great deal.

Sometimes blisters can emerge in the early stages of treatments.

When the blisters emerge, we really want you to be mindful and to take special care measures.

The body’s healing system is a very good one, and your blisters will heal and settle on their own as your immune system gets to work.

However you must take the time and care to prevent infection, to assist in minimizing scarring and to assist your cells to accelerate the healing process.

Medilase Suggestions to assist healing of blisters:

  1. Be mindful and don’t purposefully pop them or allow them to get injured.
  2. Allow fresh air to assist healing the unbroken blisters by leaving them uncovered by bandages.
  3. If the blister does break open, leave the flap of skin in place over the underlying layers of skin, and cover them with a loose bandage. Loose is the magical word! Air to move within the area.  Never use a waterproof covering.
  4. Gently pat dry with a new clean piece of gauze after your showering, spray the area with a sterile saline eye wash solution, and allow the fresh air to dry. Once dry, you may wish to dust some “Medipulv” antiseptic powder over it.
  5. Cover the injured area. Our suggestion is do not allow the gauze pad of the bandage to  sit flat on the blister; rather, make an umbrella type shape so the gauze sits above the area by  gently pressing the surgical tape on either side of the blister covering and allow the gauze pad to “sit above” by just a few millimeters over the skin.
  6. There are 2 reasons for doing this: Is to prevent unwanted organisms from the environment from contaminating the area, and 2. Is to allow the skin to breathe, for the air flow.
  7. It’s looking un-natural, very sore, ooze, and not feeling or looking like a normal heal for you? Straight to a diagnostic MD, This is a recipe for scarring, and unwanted contraindications.  Don’t hesitate!  Straight to you GP who has the knowledge and can legally prescribe what is required to assist you.
  8. Hope this article is helpful. Wish you all every success with you goals.  Medilase

 

 

International Day of Forests

The International Day of Forests, the 21st day of March, was established by resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012. Each year, various events celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests, and trees outside forests, for the benefit of current and future generations. Countries are encouraged to undertake efforts to organize local, national, and international activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns, on International Day of Forests. The Secretariat of the United Nations Forum on Forests, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization, facilitates the implementation of such events in collaboration with governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, and international, regional and sub-regional organizations. International Day of Forests was observed for the first time on March 21, 2013.
