The ability to provide improved tattoo fading using multiple laser passes in a single office laser tattoo removal session is limited. In part, this is due to the loss of laser effectiveness caused by epidermal and dermal vacuole "whitening" generated during the initial laser pass at the tattoo site. The Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device generates acoustic shock wave pulses that clear epidermal and dermal vacuoles to enable multiple laser passes in a single office laser tattoo removal session. The objective...
Laser is a widely accepted tool for tattoo removal, with standardized treatment protocols. Nevertheless, cosmetic tattoo removal may be challenging, because tattoos are performed in proximity of "sensitive" areas and because the ink used in cosmetic tattoos may contain substances that are not standardized and may modify their colour at a high temperature. In this case series we aim to evaluate the effectiveness of Q-switched Nd:YAG laser for cosmetic tattoo removal. Our study included 20 patients with cosme...
Colored tattoos are common among young adults worldwide. However, ultraviolet radiation (UVR) may affect tattoos by causing abnormal healing, premature fading, scabbing, dryness, and scarring. Although tattoo artists provide sun safety information to their clients along with aftercare instructions to prevent premature tattoo fading, there is insufficient evidence to support these findings. We present a case of a white male with premature fading of his colored tattoo due to excessive UVR exposure. This artic...
The purpose of this paper is to describe a sustainable free laser tattoo removal clinic for economically disadvantaged adult probationers.
Tattooist-related technical failures of tattooing were hitherto unstudied and related to clinical complications. Tattooing requires talent, training and experience. Amateurism is a challenge in popular tattoo industry with no formal education and certification of the tattooists.
It is not known whether tattoo-related complications are becoming more frequent and, if so, how quickly.
It is estimated that approximately 24% of the US population has at least one tattoo. However, tattoo ink ingredients include heavy metals (high atomic number Z) that are not regulated, which can cause skin reactions. This study investigates the dosimetric effects in surface dose due to high-Z elements in tattoo ink under electron beam irradiation. Four commercially available tattoo ink colors, black, red, yellow, and blue were chosen. The elemental composition of the tattoo ink samples was analyzed using X-...
Traumatic tattoos can be treated with several methods, including mechanical and chemical devices. However, they are rarely used due to the high risk of permanent side effects such as scarring and depigmentation. Recently, laser devices, especially the Q-Switched (QS) laser and the Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL), applied in combination, have achieved complete clearance of the lesions without any risk of side effects. Herein, we reported three cases of traumatic facial tattoos successfully treated with combined PDL a...
The electrokinetic (ζ, zeta) potential was determined for a series of commercial tattoo pigments. A standard experimental method involving the measuring of the level difference formed in a U-shaped tube filled with a solution containing the dye after application of some potential difference was used to find ζ-potential values. All of them were negative and sufficiently large to ensure electrophoretic mobility of the pigment particles in a special gelatin-based electrophoretic bed. Gelatin-based beds, one ...
BACKGROUND: The incidence of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer in the Hispanic population has increased. Hispanics are more likely to present with advance-staged melanoma and worse overall prognosis. Thus, public health campaigns are necessary to target the underrepresented Hispanic population. OBJECTIVE: To explore Hispanic tattoo artists’ skin cancer knowledge, sun safety recommendations, and their willingness to implement primary and secondary skin cancer prevention in their daily work routines. ...
Tattooing is a widespread phenomenon, with an estimated prevalence of 10-30% in Western populations. For psoriasis patients, current recommendations are to avoid having a tattoo if the disease is active and they are receiving immunosuppressive treatments. Although scientific data supporting these recommendations is lacking, dermatologists are often reluctant to advocate tattooing in psoriasis patients.
Exposure to metals and metal-based nano- (NPs, 1-100 nm) and submicron-particles (SPs, 0.1-1 μm) contained in tattoo inks and related health safety is currently receiving a great deal of interest. Twenty inks of different brands and colours were sampled in Italy in 2019. The SemiQuant Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) analysis allowed quantifying the concentration of 18 metals (Al, As, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, Sb, Se, Sn, Ti, Zn) in inks. The Single Particle ICP-MS ...
Cutaneous reactions to tattoos are increasing as the prevalence of tattoos increases. Lichenoid reactions often occur in red tattoos and are usually localised to the tattoo. We present a case of recurrent lichenoid reaction occurring in both the black tattooed and adjacent non-tattooed skin.
To evaluate the effect of a single session of micropulse laser trabeculoplasty on the cornea in eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma.
Chronic wounds affect roughly 6.5 million patients in the United States annually. Current standard of therapy entails weekly sharp debridement. However, the sharp technique is associated with significant pain, while having minimal impact on the bioburden. Our study proposes the Er:YAG laser as an alternative method of debridement that may decrease procedural pain, reduce bioburden, and potentially improve overall healing. This pilot study was performed as a prospective, randomized, controlled, crossover cli...
