Enhancing Tattoo Removal - Don't Forget the PFD Patch!

Laser practitioners and patients alike can't get enough of the latest tattoo removal accessory, the DESCRIBE® PFD Patch.

What is the DESCRIBE® PFD Patch? 

The DESCRIBE® PFD Patches are FDA cleared, small squares of silicone infused with PFD (Perfluorodecalin) – a completely inert, harmless liquid that allows practitioners to treat a tattoo up to four times with the laser in a single treatment session.

The PFD liquid resides between two layers of silicone. The upper silicone layer prevents the PFD liquid from evaporating and protects the skin from heat emitted from the laser. The lower silicone layer gently adheres the Patch to the patient’s skin.  

A certified laser tattoo removal practitioner applies the PFD Patch over the area being treated so that the laser fires through it.  After each pass, the practitioner readjusts the Patch to use a fresh section.  Often times, users will see real tattoo ink ejection during the course of a laser treatment when using the DESCRIBE® PFD Patch. Although ink ejection is possible, the silicone patch acts as a barrier that catches any bio-splatter, protecting both practitioners and patients.
