Radiation Mark Removal Program
Laser Dermatology is proud to announce the introduction of the "New Beginnings" radiation mark removal program.
Based on a program devised by the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), “New Beginnings” offers free removal of radiation tattoo markers after therapy has been completed.
Using gold standard tattoo removal lasers, the PicoSure® and Revlite SI ™ Q-switched YAG laser, these reminders of past cancer treatments can be removed without leaving a scar.
Once cancer free, people can be distressed by the constant reminder of when they were unwell. Laser Dermatology has successfully been using lasers to remove decorative tattoos for 21 years and in that time we have seen people who have requested to have treatment marks removed.
We feel that this treatment should be available to anyone, at no charge, once their treating doctors have given permission to proceed.
Who is eligible?
Anyone who has completed cancer treatment and has been given clearance by their doctor.
Who will do the treatment?
Our experienced laser nurses will perform the laser treatment. You do not need to see the dermatologist for this treatment.
When can I come?
Appointments are available Monday thru Friday 9-5 and Saturday from 9-1.
How much does it cost?
The treatments are completely free.
How does the laser work?
A full explanation of the laser technology can be found at www.laserdermatology.com.au
How many treatments will I need?
As the ink is usually black only 2- 4 treatments will be necessary.
What do I need to bring?
All we need is a letter from your treating oncologist or surgeon giving us permission to remove these marks.
