Operated by Dr. Richard Burgmeier, Perfect Skin invites patrons to shed outgrown tattoos with a course of laser tattoo-removal treatments. Dr. Burgmeier personally performs each treatment, wielding a RevLite laser with four wavelengths that each possesses unique abilities to handle specific ink colors and skin types. An application of topical anesthetic prepares skin one hour before treatments. Then, superfast pulses of light gently break inky images into tiny particles, which the body absorbs into its lymphatic system for future expulsion. Professional tattoos usually require six or more treatments, though tats drawn by amateur artists or rogue jackhammers may subside after only four sessions.
Freshly zapped skin will be dressed with ointment and a bandage if necessary, as some clients experience bleeding after treatments. Skin generally heals within one week, and tattoos begin to fade over the next four to eight weeks. Dr. Burgmeier finds that waiting at least six weeks between treatments and sleeping in a pit of erasers may decrease the number of sessions needed to complete the job.
