Dr William Frazier Explains the Importance of Using a Doctor to Remove Tattoos
The majority of all individuals active in the laser tattoo removal industry are non-medical personnel. Dr. William Frazier of Vero Cosmetic Surgery & Medispa finds this fact alarming and explains the importance of using a doctor for laser tattoo removal.

According to Astanza Laser, "Entrepreneurs with no medical background in over 45 U.S. states operate highly profitable laser tattoo removal businesses on a day-to-day basis. Some states have no regulation on the subject, most require very little to be done, and a few have stricter regulations that favor medical professionals with advanced degrees."
Most common regulations include "some combination"
Use of an FDA cleared device for the removal of tattoos.
A physician medical director affiliated with the practice.
A certified laser operator with at least 16 hours of hands-on training.
A laser operator with laser safety training and certification.
States such as Colorado and New York have little to minimal regulation for laser tattoo removal and an equally small number of states (e.g., Ohio, New Jersey) only allow physicians to fire a laser.
In Florida where Dr. William Frazier (board certified cosmetic surgeon) operates, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and physicians can fire a laser into a patient's skin. The difference is that Dr. Frazier is Yale-trained, experienced and trusted for over 25 years and practices using the most advanced laser in tattoo removal today.
In the video below, Dr. Frazier explains more about the PicoSure laser and demonstrates its usage in a live procedure.
The laser works fast on tough colors such as blues, blacks and greens. Previously treated tattoos are easy to treat as well with this advanced laser; whereas other inferior lasers require twenty or more painful treatments, only four to six are required with the PicoSure laser.
Pain management and avoidance are top priorities for Dr. Frazier and Dr. Bailor. They address them by saying, "Pain-free tattoo removal is here. With local anesthesia injected to numb the tattooed area and also chilled air to cool the skin, you can now enjoy quick, comfortable, and affordable sessions."
