Dr. Shaw uses the newest and fastest laser technology in Richmond known as the Cynosure Picosure to safely and quickly remove unwanted tattoos. The The laser works by breaking up the ink in the tattoo into tiny fragments which are then naturally cleared by your body’s immune system. This gradually fades the image until it disappears or is unnoticeable. The unique properties of the laser target the ink colors without harming your body’s natural pigments.
The speed and effectiveness of the Picosure has revolutionized laser tattoo removal.
Picosure tattoo removal technology is 100 times faster than conventional Q Switch tattoo lasers. This allows for extremely rapid clearance of tattoo ink, as well as shorter treatment times. On average, patients get complete clearance in half the sessions of conventional tattoo lasers. This means less time, less pain, and better results.
Travis Shaw M.D. is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon with over 10 years experience using lasers. He is also Richmond Virginia’s only Picosure laser Luminary. This means Dr Shaw teaches other physicians the most effective techniques for using the laser. He treats many patients with complications from lasers used in spas or strip malls,and is an expert in treating severe scarring and burns using the latest in laser technology.
Other laser tattoo removal services in Richmond state they have plastic surgeons “supervising” their facilities, but here is what they won’t tell you: Their plastic surgeons supervision consists of doing nothing more than signing charts. You will never meet them face to face, have them examine your skin, make proper recommendations, or follow your progress. If you go in to one of these facilities, just ask to speak to the surgeon, and see what they say.
In contrast, each and every patient is personally examined by Dr Shaw prior to any laser procedure. He will thoroughly discuss your medical history, examine your skin and tattoo type, and make personal recommendations customized for you.
