The patient in the video is having a name tattoo removed…not the heart tattoo.

Dr. Gold uses the Kirby-Desai scale to determine approximately how many treatments his patients will need to fully remove their tattoo. Treatments are recommended at 8 week intervals, giving the body’s scavenger cells adequate time to consume the ink that is shattered by the laser. Treatments take only a few minutes, are mildly painful and are surprisingly affordable. Numbing gel is used to minimize pain before the treatment, and after-care includes the use of cortisone cream.
