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
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
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
