Laser Tattoo Removal & Laser Skin Treatments
Dr Anne Malatt has been practising as a doctor for over 30 years, as an eye surgeon for over 20 years and has been in Bangalow for 15 years. She now has a Medlite C6 laser, one of the industry’s best for tattoo removal.
The laser light energy is shone onto the skin and absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo. This light rapidly heats and breaks up the pigment-containing granules in the skin cells. The pigment is then freed up to be absorbed by the body’s white cells and lymphatic system over the next few weeks.
Several treatments are required, spaced at least eight weeks apart, but the after-effects are minimal and the end result is great, fading the tattoo without causing scarring.
The laser can also treat some scars, including acne scars, fine wrinkles, and skin pigmentation (freckles and brown spots from sun damage and age).
