Why People Choose Dr. Rand for Their Laser Tattoo Removal

Since 1995 I have performed over 20,000 laser tattoo removal treatments. At this point, over 90% of my patients are referred to me by satisfied patients, doctors or tattoo artists who have already seen my results. 10% of my patients choose me as a result of diligent research on the web or after hearing my work reported in the media such as New York Daily News,  New York Post, Fox News, CBS News, NBC I-Village, CNN, the Miami Herald, or Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood.

If you have already decided that you have a tattoo you want removed, now you have to decide whom to trust. My patients were all certain that they wanted to remove their unwanted tattoo as effectively as possible. They were also equally determined not to compromise their safety and health.

The New York area Laser Tattoo Removal marketplace includes the following choices:

Private Medical Practices
A Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon is clearly the best place to obtain excellent medical surgical and cosmetic care for the skin. Often people have an established relationship with their doctor and consult initially with them regarding this procedure. Most doctors will refer their patients out to other more qualified colleagues if their own experience with a particular procedure is lacking. Many doctors routinely refer their patients to me because I specialize in tattoo removal.

Larger Medical Cosmetic Practices
Aging and beauty, not tattoo removal, are the main focus in most cosmetic medical practices. Few doctors who focus on many cosmetic procedures have the truly specialized expertise and long-term experience specifically with laser tattoo removal. There are often different doctors with various degrees of experience with different procedures. Medical studies have shown that specialization and the frequency with which a procedure is performed often translates into optimum safety and results. I specialize exclusively in laser tattoo removal and perform it personally every day for every single patient.

Some offices employ physician assistants or form associations with Nurse Practitioners who perform their laser tattoo removal in proper accordance with New York State guidelines. I do not delegate to any paraprofessionals or “physician extenders”.  I perform all laser tattoo removal personally for every patient.

Some physicians do employ rental laser companies staffed by laser technicians to bring in the laser weekly or monthly for occasional laser tattoo removal or share them with several centers. I own and personally operate all of my state of the art lasers that are all maintained and by the manufacturers to perfection. They are never mobilized between offices which can invalidate their warranties, place the laser out of alignment, lead to malfunctioning, and less than optimal performance.

Non-Medical - Cosmetologists, "Medical" Spas and Laser Franchises
Privately owned by bold entrepreneurs or corporately run, places like these have sprouted across the country although less so in the New York area where discriminating New Yorkers demand qualified medical doctors. Appealing to consumers either by a pampering touch or opulent settings these places are savvy and try to fill every popular niche by offering offer a buffet of cosmetic services from Laser Spider Vein Removal to Laser Hair Removal. Unfortunately they often specialize in marketing not medicine. They often offer the illusion of medical supervision, which may translate into a physician on call who may simply have a financial interest in the facility. A doctor rarely performs any procedures and is rarely even on premises. Non-medical personnel, old or inadequate lasers, and little long-term experience in tattoo removal are common. Some places may operate outside of their scope of practice or approved licensure and in clear violation of New York State Guidelines.
It is not appropriate in New York State for a laser technician, medical assistant, or cosmetologist to perform laser tattoo removal.
