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.

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

 

 

The Facts on Stubborn Ink Removals

MEDILASE LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

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.
