I always enjoy meeting new patients for the first time, hearing their stories and examining their unwanted tattoos. As you can imagine, I’ve seen and heard quite a lot since the introduction of the revolutionary PicoSure laser for tattoo removal. Some of the stories are pretty moving and many of the tattoos have an interesting history. Sometimes, the tattoos are where you wouldn’t expect to find them. I met one such patient yesterday, who had an interesting story and an accompanying tattoo in an odd location. He had lost his left eye when a friend shot him with a BB gun. He wore an eyepatch for years and then decided to get a tattoo on his eyelid of a small rose. Like millions of other people, he wound up regretting that decision and got numerous treatments with a P.O.S. Q-switched laser (there’s a lot of them out there). Unfortunately, the treatment results were poor at best. So now he’s left with an obvious aqua-blue tattoo remnant on his eyelid. Fortunately for him, I have removed numerous remnants left behind after a patient has been treated by a “technician” with some P.O.S. He had his first treatment today and I’ll post an after picture when the ink is cleared. Until then, if you have a tattoo in an odd location that you would like to finally be rid of, I can be reached by phone @ 512-479-9997 or just stop by my NEW location in Austin, TX: Austin Medspa on W. 6th St.
