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.


The Facts on Stubborn Ink Removals




You need to understand what Laser Tattoo Removal does:

What is this thing called Selective Photo-thermolysis

Selective photo-thermolysis is the selective targeting of an area within the dermal tissue, using a colour specific wavelength to absorb light into that target area which will be sufficient to damage the trapped molecules of ink or the target (shattering them into micro particles) while allowing the surrounding area to remain relatively untouched.

The Thermal relaxation time (TRT) is the amount of time it takes a substance (e.g. dermal tissue), after heating, to return to its normal temperature.

I hate my blue, green tattoo!

The rock minerals in these pics are heavy metals which contain the pigments that are used in blue and green tattoos!  Back to earth?  Lets read on and get informed!

How many treatments do I need to remove my blue or green tattoo?

If I could have a dollar for every time this question is asked, OMG, I could share it around and we could all go on a cruise and buy a villa in the Mediterranean.

The resistance to removal in Blue and Green inks is that they contain a product called Titanium dioxide…..

The facts are that every brand of tattoo ink has its own ingredient list, and its own specialist colours, which again require stabilizing and colour brightening agents.

The facts are that tattoos last for over 5000 years.  Read up on the “Ice Man” mummy…..

Go here and have a look see, have a great read.

We are now seeing up to 30-40% of titanium dioxide in inks, which means TATTOOS ARE MEANT TO STAY!!!!

We will find molecular ingredients of lead, chromium, nickel, iron oxides, ash, carbon black, and other ingredients.

Certain companies make great claims to removing the Blues/Greens, this works well, in fact if you are a snow-man, with the whitest skin in history, but most of us have some brown on us, even if its light brown – Ruby lasers work on “snow-men”, the rest of us, may lose our natural skin pigment along with the ink, or scar wonderfully with the “Ruby”….not our favorite machine.

Fact:  Medilase uses the Gold Standard in Tattoo Removal, and we find that passes across the blues and greens may be more than the blacks, as many as perhaps 5 more treatments or so, but the good news is that they do move, eventually.  Alternating NDYag Q Switch Laser Treatments with Skin Needling is also most effective.  Remember a tattoo that is meant to stay on your skin for 5000 Years, may be able to be treated and removed in 12 treatments of 10 minutes each = 120 minutes of lasering!  Do the sums!  Good luck with your endeavours everyone.  Talk again soon .  Medilase Laser Tattoo Removal Courses and Training

Laser Tattoo Removal Medilase: Deals, Savings, and Fastest tattoo removal methods available.

Get informed:   Fastest outcomes, best Deals, and best laser tattoo removal treatments

Laser Tattoo Removal Brisbane businesses, are they ripping you off, are they booming, are they “for real”, is the pricing all over the place, who is registered to do the treatment, what is the cheapest and fastest treatment and so on and so forth?

ARE YOU GUILTY?  Do you flip down the list on Google, and “pick” a removal business because of “what you heard” or because of “what you actually saw”, the registration of the business, and “the PRICE”?

BECOME ‘NOT GUILTY” Look for the following:

  1. The most experienced clinician.  Did you talk to the person treating you? Is that person registered?  How many tattoos have they ever removed?  Are they using a “hair removal machine to knockout your ink”? Are they using the correct type of Laser?  Did they get you in & out in 10 seconds?  Feeling ripped-off?
  2. The “fade factor” – How much fragmentation is going to happen at the place you going to choose?
  3. What types of removals can they offer?  THIS IS THE BIG QUESTION?
  4. How much?   Oh yes, if only you knew, how many treatments and how much?
  5. TICK EVERY BOX with a great big “Can Deliver” at Medilase.

Medilase is the only tattoo removal clinic in Brisbane with latest, most exciting breakthrough in  tattoo removal treatments in Australia.  Medilase provides 3 types of removals.

Standard single pass NDYag Q Switch Removals.  We are specialists in R20 tattoo removal treatments with up to 70% increased ink fragmentation and WOW! the RO laser-pass treatments just released from USA university hospital testing.  And it works.

So let’s not get confused, the RO Laser-Pass Treatments can be up to 4-6 passes with topical solutions used to eliminate the white frosting and bubbling caused by oxygen in skin.  The Treatment is an additional $299.00 on top of your quotation. WHY? Because the one vial of de-oxygenating solution we use costs exactly that, for 15mls of solution. It works!!! No waiting between passes! Just 5-6 months of treatments in the one session!  Medilase provides the RO laser tattoo removal treatments right here in Brisbane…Uniquely!

R20 is also a Wow! Factor! Allowing us to perform 3-4 treatments in the one session, however unlike the RO treatment there is a “wait” factor between passes, in order for the frosting to subside.

I considered going “back to skin”, and being mindful of the excruciating amounts of $$$$’s – it doesn’t seem fair does it?

I put together a concept for all clients with a special deal of 12 months of treatments for “back to skin” which can be up taken for just $699.00 in total, unlimited treatments, and yes, for Medilase it’s perfect.  The size we evaluated which worked within that price is a business card size tattoo.

How? You may ask?  We are a fully Licenced Class 4 Laser Clinic, and figured it was time to clean up the “hooligans” in the industry, with stupid pricings, forcing many of you to keep ink in a skin “for whatever reason” when it’s no longer wanted.  Call me anytime, I have time to consult with you when you need to move the ink.
