    Erasing Ink: Laser Tattoo Removal

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Whether for personal or professional reasons, some people may want to erase the signs of previous decisions. If you want a tattoo removed, talk to your cosmetic surgeon about laser tattoo removal. By harnessing laser light, the treatment can fracture the pigmented ink without harming the patient’s outer layer of skin.

    What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

    Laser tattoo removal eliminates unwanted tattoos in a similar way that sunspots, freckles, and other pigmented lesions can be removed. The treatment works by emitting a highly focused beam of laser light that harmlessly passes through the outer layer of skin but is absorbed by the tattoo ink. This light is converted into heat, causing a sudden rise in the temperature within the ink which results in its fracturing. These tiny particles are then naturally processed by the body’s lymphatic system and are typically shed from the body one to two weeks following the procedure.

    Treatment Considerations

    If you are considering laser tattoo removal, remember that the color, depth, and chemical composition of the tattoo will influence the effectiveness of the treatment. For example, black, dark orange, dark blue, and red tattoos tend to respond more quickly to laser tattoo removal treatments. Green, brown, light orange, purple, and light blue tattoos, on the other hand, tend to require more treatments. Treatments usually last between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the size and location of the tattoo. While fainter tattoos may fade after a single treatment, most tattoos require five or more sessions. These sessions are spaced six to eight weeks apart to allow your body enough time to fully shed the fragmented ink particles.

    Busting 3 Myths about Botox

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Advancements in technology and plastic surgery continue to provide patients with new treatments and procedures to help them look and feel their best. In addition to plastic surgery procedures, your plastic surgeon can also perform non-invasive treatments to address aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Among the most popular injectable treatments, Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that helps to eliminate wrinkles and restore a more refreshed appearance. Talk to your plastic surgeon about Botox, and learn more about the common misconceptions of the treatment below.

    1. Botox is Unsafe: One myth surrounding Botox injections is that the treatments are unsafe because Botox is derived from a toxic substance. Botox, however, is an FDA-approved treatment that is made from a purified strain of Botulinum toxin bacteria. In addition, the amount of bacteria injected into a patient’s skin is so minimal that it does not cause serious side effects nor spread to other areas of the body.
    2. Botox Affects Your Nerves: Another common myth behind Botox injections is that they can affect your nerves, impacting facial expressions or causing numbness. Botox does not affect the nerves but is rather injected into specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles. The injections block nerve signals from telling your muscles to contract, but the nerves themselves are left unaffected. An experienced and qualified plastic surgeon will be able to safely administer the treatment for natural-looking results.
    3. Botox Injections are Painful: Some patients may fear Botox injections because of the prospect of pain or discomfort. In actuality, though, most patients report only an initial minor sting for the first few seconds after the injection. Once the injection is given, there is typically no discomfort and patients are free to return immediately to their regular routines.

    For more information about Botox injections, please contact Dr. R. Scott Yarish.

    Rhinoplasty and Recovery: Nose Surgery Overview

    Last updated 2 years ago

    A harmonious facial appearance and profile can help patients to put their best face forward. With nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon can shape and contour the nose to correct internal deformities, address breathing problems, and enhance proportion.

    Rhinoplasty Procedure

    • For cosmetic reasons, incisions are generally made inside the nose. Occasionally small external incisions are required.
    • Through the incisions cartilage and/or bone are cut, trimmed and manipulated to reshape the nose and alter its external appearance.
    • If surgery is for a breathing problem, the same general technique is used to straighten the septum.
    • Sometimes a chin enlargement will be offered in conjunction with a rhinoplasty to improve the profile.

    Rhinoplasty Recovery

    • With significant structural work on the nose, the patient goes home wearing a splint holding the bone and cartilage in their new shape. A light nasal pack may also be applied to protect the septum. Inside packing would be removed within 24 to 48 hours, the outer splint within a week.
    • There is minimal postoperative discomfort, easily controlled by medication.
    • Most swelling and discoloration will subside quickly over two weeks.

    For more information about rhinoplasty or nose surgery, please contact Dr. R. Scott Yarish. Dr. Yarish is a leading, board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston with over sixteen years of experience and expertise in surgical and non-surgical procedures.
