Cancer patients undergoing radiation treatments are usually "marked" with 2-3 small tattoo marks on the skin. The marking ensures that the radiation therapist positions the radiotherapy machine in the exact location each time. The skin marks are permanent unless removed with a laser after all treatments are performed.
New Beginnings is a Radiation Mark (tattoo) Removal Program offering free mark removal for cancer patients. I am honored to have been selected to provide this free service by the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.
Our state-of-the-art laser devices enable us to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients. This is one small way we can use to provide some comfort to those who have suffered from cancer.
Patients only need to provide us with an official letter from their oncologist or radiologist approving the removal of any radiation marks (tattoos).
