While tattoos may seem like a good idea in the youthful years, many patients regret having these tattoos completed as they enter into their adult years. Perhaps the location of their tattoo keeps them from the career they want, or maybe the tattoo is a trigger for a memory of the past that a patient wants to move on from. Whatever the reason, tattoos don’t have to be permanent. With the help of Remington Laser Dermatology Centre, patients can achieve ink-free skin with laser tattoo removal.

How laser tattoo removal works

Laser tattoo removal works on the skin by breaking up the pigmentation of the ink and allowing the body to natural absorb and flush it through the body’s lymphatic system. When this happens, the tattoo will slowly begin to fade over time until it is no longer visible. To achieve this, patients need to undergo several treatment sessions.

Can laser tattoo removal be used on any type of tattoo?

Whether your tattoo is large or small, dark or light, or old or new, our laser device can assist. There are certain characteristics of a tattoo that may make it more difficult to remove, and therefore require more treatment session. Many factors need to be considered when determining how many treatments are needed, including:

  • The age of the tattoo
  • The quality of the inks used
  • The colors of the inks used
  • The area of the body
  • The size of the tattoo

During an initial evaluation appointment with Drs. Todd and Kent Remington, patients can voice their concerns and ask questions about the procedure. Our team can also give an idea to the patient as to how many treatment sessions are required to achieve the results they desire.

Urinary incontinence can be an embarrassing situation for many women. Whether they experience mild leakage or more moderate stress incontinence, there are solutions to help women gain their self-confidence back. A non-invasive treatment such as Incontilase can make a difference!

What is Incontilase?

Incontilase is a specialized laser therapy that can be used for the treatment of mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence. This device uses a non-ablative laser that stimulates the body’s natural production of collage in the vaginal canal. It helps shrink and tighten the soft tissues of the vaginal canal, allowing for better support of the bladder to reduce or even eliminate urinary incontinence concerns.

What are the benefits of Incontilase?

Incontilase is:

  • Non-invasive
  • Comfortable and pain-free
  • Non-surgical
  • No cutting
  • No bleeding
  • No stitches
  • Minimal recovery
  • Effective
  • Affordable

Studies continue to show that Incontilase is an effective and safe treatment for stress urinary incontinence, and studies showed that after 120 days following treatment, 70% of patients were dry. 94% of patients reported improvement in their symptoms, with 68% experiencing full treatment results. These amazing statistics show the benefits of Incontilase as a non-surgical approach to urinary concerns.

Who is a candidate for Incontilase?

Most women who are dealing with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence may be considered appropriate candidates for treatment. These individuals are those who are dealing with bladder leakage or dribbling when laughing, sneezing, or coughing.

What should I expect after treatment?

There is essentially minimal recovery time needed following treatment sessions. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities, though sexual activity should be held off until one-week post-treatment. Any post-treatment concerns should be discussed with the doctor. While treatment is not permanent, it can provide long-lasting improvement when patients continue to seek routine Incontilase treatments spread out over several months. In most cases, patients experience results after two to three treatments and can maintain results with treatments once or twice a year.
