Avatar n tn Maddy: Laser is the on;y nonscarring removal method. Using cream anesthesia or injections, it's not very painful. Black is easiest; colors take more treatments. You should expect to need several monthly treatments, and some pigment may remain. To find a reputable place, call the dermatologists in your area. Price is important, since the treatment is pretty standard. Questions to ask: Do you treat many tattoos? Do you have lasers for all the colors of my tattoo?
Avatar f tn The doctor basically gave me the options of laser treatment to remove the tattoo or to cut the tattoo out which will leave a big scar. But I know this Dermatologist to be very conventional and mainstream his thinking so I am researching other options. Since someone mentioned a possible fungal infection as the cause of the rash I'm going to try colloidal silver spray for a few weeks starting tonight.
Avatar n tn I want to get it covered up with another tattoo. I tried laser removal, and it seriously hurts more than childbirth so i never went back. i have been reading articles whether or not it was safe to get a tattoo while pregnant and i'm confused. Although there is no medical proof that getting a tattoo while pregnant is dangerous to the fetus, some articles say yes, others say no. What do you guys think?
Avatar m tn Of course laser scar removal can be used on the genitals to treat scars since laser removal is commonly used in removing warts caused by HPV. From my personal experience, laser therapy is not bad at all and involves very little pain after a session of laser treatment although the pain might be a little annoying when the treatment begins (it feels like bacon grease that occasionally splashes up and hits you in the wrist when you're cooking; nothing too painful).
Avatar f tn He was physically fine, but it will cost thousands of dollars to remove the tattoo, which may have to be done at a Massachusetts hospital, his father said. He said community support has been overwhelming. A high school administrator called to say school faculty members want to pay for the laser treatments. "I think the kids should pay for the laser removal," he said. The high school, he said, has scheduled four assemblies next week to address the issue of bullying.
233488 tn?1310696703 It is done by skilled surgeons using prosthetic iris implants that have been clinically tested and approved by appropriate national agencies. Nor is this using a laser to alter iris color although I would never recommend this surgery to a patient of mine. Nor are we talking about contact lens to alter the appearance of the eye iris color when worn if the contacts are fit by a skilled ophthalmologist or optometrist and worn by an informed and meticulous patient.
Avatar f tn If this were my kid, I'd talk to her about what it takes to laser off a tattoo. Maybe even have her talk to a dermatologist. (Lasering works, but it is said to be pretty painful, and of course this would be elective so means it would cost her some bucks if she ever changes her mind. And if she did change her mind about having it, it would likely be after she is 21, and out of her purse to pay for the removal.
Avatar n tn dark headed, so I have heard that the laser hair removal works well on this type of person. hum...wonder how much a all over body hair removal would cost? :) My husband doesn't seem to be bothered with it don't know why. I've talked to my doctor and he said this was common...there is medication I could take but it only controls the hair growth...it does nothing for what is already there...
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar n tn I am pretty sure a dermatologist can use a laser to help with the scarring it is expensive though. It is a little like tattoo removal which I know some drs will do free for former inmates. Maybe you could find a caring dr. to help you. It never hurts to ask you may get lucky. If the scars are fresh they make silicone sheets that you can put on the scars and leave them on as much as possible they really help. Also retin a or renova can greatly help fresh scars. That requires a prescription.
Avatar f tn I found a book online called The Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis Its a medical book for sale and you can only see a couple pages, but from the index there was a whole chapter on plate removal due to immunologic response. Also.... Allergic reactions to metal implants: Influence of wear debris Properties of implant materials and particles.
Avatar n tn I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
