DeScribe Tattoo Removal Patch: Dr. Biesman on DeScribe Tattoo Patch
Dr. Brian Biesman discusses the DeScribe Tattoo Removal Patch, a single-use, optical clearing device accessory for use with lasers for removal of tattoos.
The Describe Tattoo Patch is a single-use, optical clearing device accessory for use with a 755 Q-Switched Alexandrite laser for tattoo removal. As a physical barrier, the DeScribe Patch may protect the epidermis from thermal injury by allowing heat absorption by the silicone patch (1). The Patch allows up to 4x as many passes in each treatment session versus without the Patch (2†). It allows higher laser fluence for targeting more stubborn ink (1†) and reduces light scattering which allows for deeper penetration (1†). Less injury can translate into faster healing times. Faster healing times can translate into reduced time between sessions.
