Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center is excited to announce that, effective immediately, PFD patches will be available for use in tattoo removal procedures.
The ON Light Sciences DeScribe® Transparent PFD Patch "is infused with perfluorodecalin (PFD), an inert, non-toxic, transparent liquid that has been used in a variety of medical applications for years. Because of its unique affinity for gases, as well as its powerful index matching and optical clearing properties, PFD speeds clearance of the opaque white bubble layer formed after a conventional single laser pass. By absorbing gas, reducing optical scattering and enabling index matching, the DeScribe Patch allows the powerful clinical advantage of immediate re-treatment."
By allowing technicians the ability to immediately re-treat an area, Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center is now able to significantly decrease the number of individual treatment visits a patient would typically require.
