PLEASANTON, Calif., March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ON Light Sciences, a leader in office-based tattoo removal accessories, was awarded Patient's Guide "Most Innovative Laser Tattoo Removal Product of 2016" in a special report on this rapidly growing field. Its FDA-cleared system called the DeScribe® Transparent PFD Patch introduces an entirely new method for rapid, multi-pass tattoo removal.
"Tattoo removal can often be a lengthy and difficult process," said David Sell, President and CEO of ON Light Sciences. "The DeScribe Patch allows multiple, optically effective laser passes in one brief treatment session. This is an important advancement that will benefit those with standard and recalcitrant tattoos. To date, both patients and physicians are pleased with the results."
In a simple set of steps, the clinician can pre-treat a tattoo with liquid PFD provided with the Describe product, cover the area with the PFD-infused Patch, and then perform multiple laser passes directly through the Patch in a few minutes. The silicone Patch prevents evaporation of PFD, conducts heat from the epidermis and blocks ejected skin debris. The white, optically opaque bubble layer is rapidly reduced by PFD's ability to absorb gas. PFD's optical clearing properties then significantly reduce optical scattering and allow treatment lasers to penetrate more deeply into tissue, breaking up ink particles at greater depths without epidermal damage.
Dr. David McDaniel, MD, FAAD, Director of the Laser & Cosmetic Center of Virginia Beach, VA recently noted that: "We have been interested in rapid multi-pass laser treatments for some time, and the PFD Patch appears to be the best way to integrate that into our practice."
