The Evolution of the Cosmetic Laser

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Thursday, November 16, 2017

Cosmetic lasers have come a long way from the pioneering ones first used to remove wrinkles. In the early days, laser treatments were a luxury for only a select few. Today, laser procedures are extremely popular and technology has advanced light beams ahead (pun intended). Today's specialized instruments can treat specific issues. They can help you get rid of perceived flaws such as wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, and unwanted hair. They can even erase something that nature did not give you...the inked designs you received from a tattoo studio.

Thirty years ago laser usage for purely cosmetic reasons was only a gleam in a few doctors' eyes. At that time, the process was not for the faint of heart. Only people willing to deal with an extended downtime and the possibility of complications underwent treatment. Laser equipment was not a precision instrument in those days and the laser burns could be extensive and take weeks to heal.

Annoyed by wrinkles you would like smoothed out? A couple of sessions with an experienced laser technician may be the answer. Unlike their predecessors, CO2 fractional lasers resurface the skin with minimal downtime. Initially, after having the treatment, a person may feel like hiding beneath a hat and sporting large sunglasses, but in a matter of days he or she will be out and about. The process of rejuvenating the skin is fairly simply explained. Basically, in order to smooth out fine lines new collagen needs to be produced. The laser burns microscopic holes in the skin supercharging collagen production.

Have some hair you want permanently removed? Again, you may wish to consider getting laser treatments. A laser is a remarkable tool for getting rid of unwanted hair permanently. The procedure for removing hair is precise and quick. It can treat small areas in a matter of seconds. It may take a few sessions to get rid of that unwanted hair above your lip, but just imagine how freeing it would be to throw away the bleaching creams and wax strips.

Have you tried everything but you can’t get rid of those stubborn acne scars? Lasers to the rescue again. The same principle is at work here as in the rejuvenating process. The beam of light encourages production of collagen to fill in the pitted scar. An experienced technician can lessen the appearance of stretch marks as well.

Bored of that ink on your arm? The PicoSure laser is the ultimate equipment for removing it. You might say PicoSure tops the evolutionary chain of tattoo removal lasers. It can get rid of tattoos with multiple colors. It is advanced enough to erase those hard to remove colors such as greens and blues. If you’ve been stuck with the ghost of an old tattoo because the last treatment you received was not completely successful, then come to our office in Hawaii for a consultation. We will let you know if PicoSure can help erase the last traces of that stubborn tattoo. And unlike the lasers of yore or even those on the market just a few short years ago, the PicoSure can perform its magic in fewer sessions and with a shortened recovery time.

When Your Employer Says Tattoos Got to Go

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Thursday, September 28, 2017

Tattoos Got to Go

Recently a well-known employer confronted a 27 year old employee and advised her that the small heart tattooed on her hand must go. About the size of a quarter, the tattoo was no longer welcome at the business. 


She was given 30 days to begin the removal process of the tattoo or face the possibility of losing her job.


Corporate headquarters had issued the dictum of no visible tattoos in the workplace.

The employee has steadfastly refused to have the tattoo removed, stating she had it when she was hired. It wasn’t offensive, and that she had been using makeup to cover it. Obviously her efforts weren’t enough, and the employer seems to have the upper hand.

It’s unclear if employment law will help to clear up this matter, but it is pretty evident that employers are starting to require the no visible tattoo policy in the workplace.

Unlike years ago, when the permanency of a tattoo was a reality, today there are many alternatives available to have an unwanted tattoo removed.

Tattoo Removal After Care 

Here at InkOff.MD, we specialize in safe and effective tattoo removal procedures. Picture or print, we use the most state of the art methods that provide the best results for the removal of unwanted or unsightly tattoos.

Using the most effective method available, the PicoSure pico-second laser, your results will astound and please you. This treatment produces a faster recovery time with fewer treatments.


After Your Tattoo Removal Treatment
Generally after your treatment you may feel some warm or heat sensations that are comparable to a sunburn. This feeling could last up to a few hours post treatment.  Using a cold compress such as ice on the area for 20 minutes at a time, waiting 20 minutes between, can help ease the heat sensation. Be sure not to apply ice directly on the skin. You can use a cloth between the ice and your skin.

You can wash the area that was treated with Cetaphil soap and water. Dry the area by gently patting with a piece of clean gauze, and apply a Vaseline product. Also, use a Telfa bandage on the treated area after washing. Repeat this daily three times a day for about five days or until healed.

Avoid soaking the treated portion of the skin in water such as a bathtub, swimming pool or Jacuzzi for at least five days or until the area is healed. Taking a shower is fine, or running water across the area.

If a scab or crust is visible, don’t shave as this will affect the healing process.

Use sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 after the area is healed. Keep using the sunscreen for at least six weeks, or until your next visit.

Avoid exercise for at least three to five days after the treatment. Once the area is healed, you can resume your exercise program.

How to Recover from Laser Tattoo Removal

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Tuesday, June 06, 2017

Person receiving laser tattoo removal.

Making the decision to get your tattoo removed is no easy undertaking. Your ink may have at one point meant a great deal to you, but now your feelings toward it have changed. When you first got your tattoo, you probably took the time to research the artist, and took care of your body art to make sure it healed properly. Now, that you’ve decided to get it removed, why not take the same precautions and steps to make sure your body heals properly?

In order to ensure a fast and thorough healing process, we’ve come up with some tips to move the process along safely and quickly. Make these changes in your daily routine and say goodbye to your unwanted tattoo!

Exercise

By getting and staying active, your body will increase blood flow to aid in muscle recovery. While this is happening, your skin (and underlying ink particles) get extra benefits and recover faster. What remains of your recently removed tattoo will exit your body more rapidly and you’ll feel healthier as well! 


Drink More Water

Keeping your body hydrated is an important part of the recovery and healing process. Since your skin is made up of almost 65% water, wouldn’t it make sense that you need to drink water to stay healthy? Decreasing alcohol consumption will also help your tattoo removal heal faster. This is due to alcohol’s natural dehydrating effects, and will cause ink pigmentation to linger longer.


Quit Smoking

There are many studies out there that explain how smoking affects your body’s ability to heal when removing a tattoo, but we’ll give you some quick facts. First, the laser tattoo removal process can be 70% less effective for tobacco users. Smoking weakens the immune system and leads to reduced antibody response. This is directly responsible to delaying the healing process. Also, carbon monoxide restricts your blood vessels, which can cause ink pigmentation to linger longer than usual. With all of this in mind, maybe getting that tattoo of your ex can serve as motivation to finally quit smoking too!


Shield From Sunlight

At some point during the laser tattoo removal process, your doctor probably warned you about exposure to the sun during the healing process, and for good reason. If the area surrounding your removed ink is burned or blisters, it may lead to permanent scarring. Also, if you tattoo removal requires multiple sessions, tanned skinned will delay the process because darker skin is tougher for the laser to penetrate and break up ink particles. If you do go outside, apply sunscreen or cover up with garments of clothing!


The laser can only do so much to remove your tattoo. The rest is up to you! Treating your body right and making healthy choices in your everyday life can greatly speed up the tattoo removal process.

8 Factors of Tattoo Removal

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Thursday, May 25, 2017
8 factors of tattoo removal

When someone considers getting their tattoo removed, the most common question they ask themselves is “how many sessions will this take?” In truth, the answer can vary depending a number of factors. While it is difficult to foresee the exact number of treatments it will take to completely remove your tattoo, success can be determined by the following conditions:


Related: How Laser Tattoo Removal Works and Common Techniques


1. Age of the Tattoo

The older your tattoo is, the more likely the pigment has faded and may be easier to remove than fresher, darker ink. 

2. Size of the Tattoo

Common sense tells us that the larger the tattoo, the more ink was used to on your skin. Because of this, larger tattoos require more sessions to eliminate and may be difficult to predict. The good news is that no matter how large your unwanted tattoo is, new laser technology is becoming more efficient at blasting it away! 


3. Ink Color

Green, blue, and black inks are typically easier to remove, while yellow, orange, and red inks are a bit more difficult. New technology such as the PicoSure laser has been able to more efficiently remove these tattoo colors. With the revolutionized PicoSure laser, tattoo removal sessions have been reduced to only a few treatments for black and blue inks!

Related: There's Only One Laser You Should Use For Tattoo Removal

4. Skin Color

Tattoo removal is generally more effective on clients with lighter skin tones. This is because lighter skin doesn’t significantly absorb laser light, which means most of the laser energy is focused on the tattoo ink. Alternatively, those with darker skin tones tend to siphon a portion of that laser light away from the tattoo, making removal a bit 


5. Smoking

Smokers have been known to experience a slower rate of wound healing, and rend to exhibit signs of skin dehydration. Because of this, the effectiveness of tattoo removal lasers may be lessened.


6. Tattoo Location

This one might not be so obvious. Your tattoo’s location can determine how many treatment sessions are required for complete removal. This is because areas of the body that have limited vascular supply, such as the hands and feet, heal slower than areas like the chest or back. 


7. Scar Tissue

During the initial tattoo process, some people develop scarring or tissue damage. Ink pigments that exist under these types of scars are much more difficult to remove, and may require more tattoo removal sessions. 


8. Cover-up Tattoos

Cover-ups are the most difficult tattoos to remove, with reason. Because a cover-up tattoo contains essentially twice the ink of a normal tattoo, and often times uses darker tones, more treatment sessions are typically required to remove one. 

At Inkoff.MD, Dr. Chung and his staff have been successfully removing tattoos with the very latest technology. Utilizing PicoSure Laser Treatments, we completely eliminate your unwanted ink. Call us today for the quickest tattoo removal in Honolulu! (808) 949-8346





10 Reasons People Remove Tattoos

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Wednesday, April 26, 2017

 
There are lots of reasons people consider getting their tattoos removed. Initially getting ink can seem like a great idea, and you'll always love that barbed wire on your bicep right? Unfortunately times change, and so do peoples attitudes toward the permanent artwork on their bodies. If you fall into one of the following 12 categories of tattoo regret, it may be time to consider getting that ink removed for good especially if it is affecting your employment.

1. Body Placement

When you're 18 and everyday the mirror greets you with the healthiest, most toned version of your self, tattoo location is often an afterthought. Fast metabolism is a wonderful thing. However now that you're in your 30's, that tummy-tat has gotten significantly more shapely. Short of joining a gym and getting your act together, tattoo removal may be your best bet.

2. Cover Up Gone Wrong

It takes a skilled artist to cover up a tattoo, and if you opt to go the cheap route when picking one, you may end up worse off.

3. Impaired Judgment

Sometimes there’s no accounting for taste. If you find yourself at the tattoo parlor after a rough night out on the town, your judgment might just be slightly impaired. The good news is you don’t have to live with those decisions forever.

4. Your Tattoo Has Faded

The grayish splotch on your shoulder was once a bright and vibrant tattoo, but years of basking in the sun and enjoying the beach has caught up to you. If you’ve neglected your ink to this point, you may just want to get rid of it all together.

5. You’ve broken up

One of the top reasons people choose to get a tattoo removed is that it serves as a painful reminder of love lost. If that significant other didn’t turn out to be THE ONE after all, why live with the heartbreak forever?

6. What Was Cool Then, Isn’t Now

Getting back to barbed wire, why? Just why? (Sorry Brian Urlacher fans)

7. Joining the Military

Getting some military themed artwork to honor your service years is common, but you’ll want to make sure they accept the tats you already have. Approval before you enlist is subject to the regulations set by each branch of the armed services.

8. Parenthood

Bringing a child into the world can definitely give you a different perspective on things, and “Laugh Now, Cry Later” may not be the message you want to instill in your offspring. 

9. It Was Misspelled

Believe it or not, this still happens, a lot. If you want to get lettering done, double check, then triple check. If that still doesn’t work and you end up with “No Regerts” on your arm, its time to get that tattoo removed.

10. Your Tattoo Doesn’t Say What You Think It does

Getting a tattoo on vacation to an exotic location can be a great way to commemorate a life-changing experience. Another experience you may end up having is when the locals tell you that your tattoo means something nonsensical.

If you are considering tattoo removal, whether large or small, Dr. Chung has the experience and technology to help. Contact us today for a consultation, and feel great about your skin again!

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works and Common Techniques

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Friday, March 24, 2017

About 45 million people in America share body art in the form of tattoos. And about half of those people seek to have their tattoos removed at some later point. Often folks are a little regretful of having placed a tattoo in a highly visible location. Regardless of the reason, you need to know your options for laser tattoo removal to choose the best route for you and when it is best for your body.

Few risks are incurred when employing the right type of lasers. The most important factor is the professional performing the procedure. You want to check the background of your choice.


Why Is the Immune System Involved?

Lasers do not remove tattoos. They are merely a mechanism that allows the dye to be removed. Lasers break apart the tattoos into small pieces, allowing these little sections to be hauled away. Your immune system does the actual manual labor of removal with the help of white blood cells.

Your immune system is amazing. In constant motion, it removes foreign bodies from your blood and tissues. The foreign bodies may be organic, such as bacteria. Inorganics are also targeted, such as chemicals and metals. Tattoo dye is often made of a combination of pigment and metals. Some dyes even include mercury.

The immune system needs time to move the pieces. The area of skin must be allowed to heal. For these two main reasons, several weeks need to pass between laser treatments. There are other considerations as well.


Healthy Immune Systems Remove Tattoos

Recall that your immune system is constantly working. It is battling toxins made from normal chemical reactions in your cells on a daily basis. They are the byproducts of digestion, cell growth and a whole host of productions transpiring in your body. Without any outside intrusion, your immune system constantly works; when you are awake, at rest, and even asleep.

When a foreign body is added to the system, it sends out special workers to remove the threat, for that is how foreign bodies are viewed. Bacteria causing a sickness are immediately rendered inert in a healthy immune system. And you remain healthy. But when there is an onslaught, such as a severe cold or flu, your body is working doubly hard to eject the intruders. For this reason, when you decide to schedule a laser tattoo removal session, you want to be in good health. You don’t want your immune system to already be battling a cold. If you have a cold, then the tattoo and cold will take much longer to fade, as the immune system must divide and conquer, instead of focusing on one or the other.

Antibiotics also negatively affect laser tattoo removal. Skin becomes a bit light sensitive when using them. Lasers emit light in various pulses. The light may damage the skin more when you have antibiotics in your system.

In order to reduce overall stress to your immune system, you want to be in good health for each laser tattoo removal treatment. It ensures your body can handle the normal tasks while discarding the toxins found in the dye.


Laser Tattoo Removal Techniques

The most common form of tattoo removal is currently the use of a laser. Lasers produce intense light in very short bursts. The light then goes through the top layer of skin harmlessly. When the laser makes contact with the pigment from the tattoo, it breaks the ink blots into smaller pieces. Not all lasers are the same. An array of laser wavelengths are used for different colors, as light is absorbed. Dark colors break up more fully than light colors, on average. Expect to endure several sessions to fully remove your tattoo. Usually, it takes ten times the effort to remove one than it does to add one to your skin.


PicoSure

This particular technique is approved by the FDA. It uses energy in short bursts. Not only does it help remove a tattoo, it can lighten age spots, reduce wrinkles and acne scars. The pulses are a trillionth of a second long. The tattoo ink breaks into small pieces, whereby the immune system of the body carts off the ink to the liver for expulsion.


Q-Switch

This is an active laser. It is considered a very effective technique for dark dyes. It will not work for light blues or yellows. Though rather expensive, it is very effective.


Q-Switched Ruby

The difficult-to-remove colors are often broken down by this type of laser. The wavelengths are measured in nanoseconds. This technique will also be effective for darker colors.


Q-Switched Nd-YAG

This uses crystals which help focus light for gray, dark blue and black dyes. Yellow, red and orange colors are also broken up with this laser tattoo removal technique. Wavelengths are able to reach deep skin tissue layers.


Q-Switched Alexandrite

Used mainly for green, blue and black tattoos. This is a popular technique, as green is often a difficult dye to remove.


Dye Handpiece

This particular kind of laser offers an array of wavelengths and therefore colors for removal. However, it is not very effective. Handpieces lower the power of a laser, and tends to scatter the light. Though not as expensive as other techniques, it appears it is not worth the money savings.


Passive Laser

More often than not, a passive laser is too weak to eliminate a tattoo completely. This form of removal simply fades the tattoo.


Laser Tattoo Removal

The three biggest considerations for laser tattoo removal are:

Wavelength of the laser vs. color of the dye to be removed.
Talent of the professional using the laser.
Your current health.

One great way to choose your professional is through recommendations from friends and family. You should have a handle of what technique you wish to choose, to know what colors and how many sessions will be necessary. And you should always schedule a session when you are healthy, not when you are battling a cold for ensuring the best results.



Ink in the Workplace: Tackling the Tattoo Taboo

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Thursday, March 02, 2017

tattoos in the workplaceInk was once a mark of rebellion. If you spotted someone with permanent patterns scrawled on the surface of their skin, it was likely this person stood for something outside the realms of social normality.

Gangs could be identified by their markings. Hysterical protestors wore ink to show commitment to a cause. Long-serving felons were distinguishable for the designs they acquired in prison.

Tattoos can still represent revolt and resistance to this day, but they have also begun to move inside the circle of modern social acceptance.

Inked skin is no longer an exclusive indicator of off-center opinions and lifestyles, but rather an artistic reflection of individuality and certain values.

Tattoos can say things about a person that words never could. The main issue, however, is that the corporate world is still hesitant to hear them. Whilst society as a whole has become increasingly more open-minded about tattoos, there remains a high degree of controversy surrounding inked skin in the workplace.

Many are attempting to tackle the big taboo around tattoos in the employment sector. But will tattoos ever be considered completely acceptable in the working environment? Should they be?

As the debate rumbles on, we take a closer look at the current status of tattoos in the workplace and attitudes towards them.

Slowly Shifting Stereotypes


For many, tattoos are no longer purely associated with crime, violence, and insurgency like they were once upon a time. Opinions about inked skin still vary, but tattoos are not considered the huge social taboo that they used to be.

The good news for tattoo wearers is that ink is being slowly accepted by a growing number of SME’s, with practical approaches starting to be enforced by smaller businesses. Some of these companies have no problems whatsoever with tattoos, whereas others kindly ask employees to cover the inked area with long-sleeved shirts and collars if they are attending important meetings or interacting with clients.

However, an interesting trend is apparent when it comes to tattooed people and bigger businesses. Evidence suggests the further up the employment ladder you travel, the less tolerance you will find towards tattoos.The more money and “professionalism” a position involves, the less likely that tattooed skin will be permitted.

Despite the shifting stereotypes amid the lower reaches of society and smaller businesses, the stigma towards tattoos in the workplace remains intact in corporate spaces.

Health & Safety


Tattoo-related health issues are much rarer than many people think. Nowadays, many tattoo parlors are as bright, clean, fresh and crisp-looking as a health care center.

If studios continue to commit to a bright, professional image, show sublime health & safety standards, and offer a clean waiting area for customers, we can expect to see increased acceptance of tattoos in the workplace. The cleaner the image – the greater the chance of professional environments becoming more accommodating.

The reputation of tattoos has also suffered due to the fact that, until recently, they were considered impossible to eradicate. It’s true that tattoo removal is still challenging and may leave a mark in some cases, but thanks to the evolution of science, it is now a real possibility. Follow-up procedures and aftercare can also be performed to minimize scarring, and as laser treatment becomes more affordable via payment plans, the intimidating "permanency” that formerly surrounded tattoos is slowly subsiding.


There remains a growing sense of awareness around health and safety with tattoos, suggesting that studios are acutely aware of societal demands for excellent hygiene and high standards. This will surely help enhance the reputation of tattoos in the long run.

Appreciating Creativity


Tattoo parlors are creative hubs just like many marketing or business agencies.

As innovation and creativity become increasingly attractive in the digital age (where so many tasks are performed on auto-pilot), companies are beginning to respect the work of tattoo studios and appreciate why people might want to get their skin inked with these types of patterns.

For a long time, companies were happy to work alongside tobacco companies. Working with tattoo studios, on the other hand, was seen as widely unprofessional. But the balance is shifting. Businesses now go out of their way to avoid any kind of association with tobacco or other “unhealthy” products but are eager to work with tattoo studios given how these parlors promote art and creativity.

As businesses begin to understand the values of tattoo studios, more companies will begin to embrace tattoos in the workplace overall. The shift is happening, albeit at a very steady rate. 

Personal Significance


An influential factor in tolerance levels towards tattoos is whether a particular pattern has personal meaning.

A visible tattoo is often a talking point, and if the owner of the ink can explain the reasoning and rationale behind getting the tattoo, then someone who was initially suspect beforehand immediately begins to soften.

This goes for employers, too. Many recruiters will be able to sympathize with a prospective staff member sporting a tattoo of a loved one’s name. Tattoos with personal significance have a greater chance of being accepted in the workplace than those which appear as “noisy” patterns, and many employers will factor this into their decision during the recruitment process.

Unsurprisingly, employers often deem facial tattoos to be inappropriate. Whilst society is beginning to accept inked skin, many people remain far less comfortable with facial tats. Given how the business world is two steps behind society in condoning body prints, it is safe to say that facial tattoos aren’t likely to be accepted in work environments any time soon. In the case of big name corporations, they may never be embraced.

We are beginning to see smaller businesses accept tattoos in the workplace, with many offering a “cover-up” compromise. However, amid high-paid corporate positions, tattoos in the workplace remains a huge taboo.

There is some way to go for ink to be wholly accepted, but tattoo enthusiasts can take some heart from the direction in which things are heading.

What Are Radiation Therapy Tattoos & How to Remove Them

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Tuesday, January 10, 2017

radiation therapy tattooAccording to the National Cancer Institute about half of all cancer patients receive radiation therapy. Radiation is one of the most common treatments for breast cancer as it uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. If you choose to get radiation therapy to treat breast cancer you will be given radiation therapy tattoos.

Radiation Therapy Tattoos


Before you start radiation, you’ll probably get four small tattoos on your breast. They will help the radiation therapist easily find the spot you need treatment. This will spare healthy tissue and prevent recurrence. Think of it as placing a bulls-eye target on your body so the technician can work on the right spot.


The spots will be blue or black and made by a drop of ink from a slim needle. They will be very tiny and probably not exceed 1 millimeter in diameter.


A Testament of Survival

Most women keep the dots to remind them of the disease they conquered. They also give doctors a reference of where your treatments are. Some survivors even turn their tattoos into creative body art pieces to celebrate their life.

If your oncologist believes that you have a low chance of recurrence then you may want to consider having them removed. If you decide to remove your radiation therapy tattoo then consult with a tattoo removal specialist.

Removing a Radiation Therapy Tattoo

Cost is dependent on color and size of tattoo, so with black ink being the easiest ink to remove and the small size of the markings the cost will be minimal. The most innovative lasers for tattoo removal is the Picosure laser and the Q-switch Nd:YAG laser. Usually tattoo removal causes more discomfort in sensitive areas. To relieve any discomfort take a Tylenol a few ours before the treatment. Take time to do your research and ask a professional the right questions before the procedure.

There's Only 1 Laser You Should Use For Tattoo Removal

Dr. W. Y Chung, MD - Friday, December 16, 2016

tattoo removal technologyThe nature of the technology culture is to be continually innovating products. If you were looking to buy a new iPhone you probably wouldn’t dream of buying the original iPhone 1st generation. It’s not compatible with the new operating system so new apps won’t work, not to mention it would run at a prehistoric pace. No, you’d probably opt for the newest phone. Just like choosing a phone, you should choose the most innovative technology for laser tattoo removal. There are 2 benefits of Picosure lasers that make it the best laser on the market.

Fewer Treatments

Picosure technology breaks up tattoo particles in smaller particles by applying short impulses of lasers in trillionths of a second. This allows for fewer treatments because your bodies immune system is able to remove the particles faster. Dr. Gary Lask, director of dermatologic surgery at UCLA, comments, “By doing that you’re getting a more intense reaction. That destroys the tattoo particles.” This treatment will remove a black tattoo in about 5 sessions.

Efficient Color Removal

Certain colors are usually the most difficult process of tattoo removal as there are varied wavelengths for certain pigments. Oranges and reds are the hardest to remove, while blue and black are relatively easy. Picosure, however, makes the process of removing color easier.

As the expert Dr. Lask remarks, “It’s the first new breakthrough for tattoo treatment in about 20 years.”

With that advice in mind you shouldn’t settle for sub par laser tattoo removal treatments. Consult a professional for your tattoo removal needs.
