Does Laser Tattoo Removal Really Work?

The short answer – yes! A special laser called a Q-Switched laser provides outstanding results to significantly lighten or remove most tattoo inks. The laser tattoo removal treatment is safe and effective and does not affect the surrounding skin. It is a non-invasive solution to having tattoos removed surgically.

Quite often people regret getting a tattoo and even find it embarrassing as their life changes. As the old saying goes “The indiscretions of youth are the regrets of maturity” – anonymous. Laser tattoo removal treatment uses pulses of light from the laser that are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body’s macrophages remove the treated pigmented areas. The Q-Switched laser can effectively treat dark tattoo inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos) and blue. You should expect to receive several treatments to achieve expected results.

Key Advantages for Patients

  • Safest way to remove unwanted tattoos
  • Effective treatment for dark tattoo inks (black and blue)
  • Dramatic results after several treatments

Q-switched lasers used by Lasertech Clicnic now provide a safe & effective way of removing tattoos. Tattoos Are No Longer Forever! Decorative tattooing can be traced back thousands of years to many indigenous peoples on different continents. And, so can the desire to remove them. Tattoos have become extremely popular over the past decade, especially for young adults. Unfortunately, within five years more than half regret getting the tattoo and would like to have them removed. What looks good at 18 may seem undesirable at 28 when your kid asks you “Who is Margo or James?”.

Viewed by many teenagers as an act of self-expression, identity, and sometimes rebellion, tattoos may create barriers to employment and social acceptance at a more mature age. Hey, I’m not saying that is right, but it is the way it is! In addition, as their colors fade & skin looses its youthful elasticity, tattoos may become a defacement rather than decorations. That cute little rose has become a bouquet of dead roses.

How Does the Q-Switched Laser Work?

The Q-Switched laser delivers light quickly – in nano-seconds at a very high energy. These pulses are absorbed by the tattoo, breaking it into pigment particles small enough for removal by the body’s natural immune and lymphatic system.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Safe?

Q-Switch laser technology offers high efficiency at very low risk. It enables effective tattoo removal with very little chance of side effects.

What Kind of Tattoos Can Be Removed?

Q-Switch laser systems can now remove all types of tattoo with little or no scarring. Professional and amateur tattoos, as well as traumatic tattoos, resulting from accidents, are treated successfully.

Can the Q-Switched Laser Remove All Color Tattoos?

The Q-Switched is the workhorse of tattoo removal. The Q-Switched laser is especially suited to the removal of dark blue & black inks. The frequency doubled Q-Switched laser is used to remove red, green & orange tattoos.

What Is the Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment Like?

The threshold of discomfort is different for every person, however most people tolerate Q-Switched tattoo removal treatment very well. They describe the sensation as a mild rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anesthesia, although topical anesthetic is an option for especially sensitive areas. In determining the number of treatments necessary, the consultant will consider such factors as tattoo location, the patient´s age and their skin type.

Tattoo removal methods have existed nearly as long as the tattooing process itself. However the scarring and pain associated with these procedures is often more offensive than the tattoo. The two previous methods are called salabrasion and dermabrasion – the ‘sanding’ of the pigmented skin. This causes trauma, bleeding and significant scarring. Invasive incision, the actual surgical removal of tattoos leaves scars and is only suitable for small areas. For larger tattoos, skin grafting, which leaves scars at sites of both tattoo and the graft. Q-Switched lasers offer significant advantages over previous methods for tattoo removal, and are presently the treatment of choice for tattoo removal.

The liver is the body?s workhorse. It makes proteins and bile, processes fats, and detoxifies drugs and alcohol. The liver is a resilient organ, but it is susceptible to damage from a number of sources, including viral infections. Such infections cause inflammation of the liver, called hepatitis. This book is a comprehensive guide to hepatitis C, which affects about 3 percent of the world?s population?3 to 4 million people in the United States alone. Some people with acute hepatitis C infection will be cured without any treatment, but when hepatitis C becomes chronic it may cause cirrhosis, liver cancer, and death. Hepatitis C is transmitted from an infected person to an uninfected person by sharing drug-injecting equipment, snorting cocaine, having sex, or getting a blood transfusion or organ transplant. It can be spread by getting a tattoo with unsterile equipment. In rare cases, women with hepatitis C transmit the virus to their infants. World-renowned gastroenterologist and liver specialist Dr. Paul J. Thuluvath provides detailed information about the disease and its diagnosis and management, including dramatically improved treatments that have recently emerged. Dr. Thuluvath answers common and uncommon questions about hepatitis C and liver disease, including?

From two bestselling authors?the first in a deliciously bold new series that takes readers to the most dangerous edge of desire. Nikolai: I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the sight of my tattoos. The stars on my knees, the marks on my fingers, the dagger in my neck, all spoke of danger. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you?d have. I have ever been the hunter, never the prey. With her, I am the mark and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her, I will bring the world down around their ears. Daisy: I?ve been sheltered from the outside world all my life. Home-schooled and farm-raised, I?m so naive that my best friend calls me Pollyanna. I like to believe the best about people. Nikolai is part of this new life, and he?s terrifying to me. Not because his eyes are cold or my friend warns me away from him, but because he?s the only man who has ever seen the real me beneath the awkwardness. With him, my heart is at risk. and also, my life.

What we know of the marked body in nineteenth-century American literature and culture often begins withThe Scarlet Letter’s Hester Prynne and ends with Moby Dick’s Queequeg. This study looks at the presence of marked men and women in a more challenging array of canonical and lesser-known works, including exploration narratives, romances, and frontier novels. Jennifer Putzi shows how tattoos, scars, and brands can function both as stigma and as emblem of healing and survival, thus blurring the borderline between the biological and social, the corporeal and spiritual. Examining such texts as Typee, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Captivity of the Oatman Girls, The Morgesons, Iola Leroy, and Contending Forces, Putzi relates the representation of the marked body to significant events, beliefs, or cultural shifts, including tattooing and captivity, romantic love, the patriarchal family, and abolition and slavery. Her particular focus is on both men and women of color, as well as white women-in other words, bodies that did not signify personhood in the nineteenth century and thus by their very nature were grotesque. Complicating the discourse on agency, power, and identity, these texts reveal a surprisingly complex array of representations of and responses to the marked body-some that are a product of essentialist thinking about race and gender identities and some that complicate, critique, or even rebel against conventional thought.

Plainclothes Naked


Plainclothes Naked


$6.99


From legendary cult writer Jerry Stahl comes Plainclothes Naked, a breakout novel that jacks up crime fiction to new heights of twisted, sexy, mind-blowing brilliance. With searing wit and devastating detail, Stahl – whose work, Jim Carroll has written, “fills the gap in American literature left void since the death of the late, great Terry Southern ” – takes us deep into the minds of addicts and detectives, fetishists and killers. It’s a vision of American misfits in a world of violent crime, official corruption, drug-addled scheming, and – perhaps strangest of all – genuine, up-from-the-toes true love. In a wildly careening plot that can only be described as crack noir, two pipe-heads accidentally steal a photo of George W. Bush’s presidential package with a happy face tattooed on it and decide to blackmail the Republican Party. Before the crack-crazed thieves can follow through, however, a gorgeous, whip-smart young nurse absconds with the goods. But Nurse Tina’s got her own problems – she’s just offed her online “money swami” husband with a bowl of Drano-laced Lucky Charms. When Manny Rubert, a scarred ex-junkie turned codeine-popping detective, is called in to investigate the “foamer” hubby’s untimely demise, love hits him like a wrench to the head. Soon Manny and Tina are making plans of their own for the presidential pic – and for their future together. But the meddling police chiefs and motel room sex-change surgeons of the world just won’t leave them alone. And then there are those killer crackheads, still out there and closing in. At once a scathing tale of contemporary insanity and a no-holds-barred, tour de force thriller, Plainclothes Naked forges violence and comedy into a criminal love story as shocking as it is transcendent.
