The DeScribe patch is a transparent plastic patch infused with the chemical perfluorodecalin (PFD). PFD is an inert, non-toxic, transparent liquid that has been used in a variety of medical applications for years. Because of its unique affinity for gases, as well as its powerful index matching and optical clearing properties, PFD speeds clearance of the opaque white layer of nitrogen bubbles (frosting) formed after a conventional single laser pass. By absorbing gas, reducing optical scattering and enabling index matching, the DeScribe Patch allows for immediate retreatment. With the ability to safely perform multiple treatments at each session, the tattoo removal process speeds up. The patch has also been found to improve healing after laser treatment and improve the overall outcome of the removal process.
The DeScribe patch was recently approved by the FDA. It is only available to licensed medical professionals. VanishMD offers DeScribe patch treatment to clients in Long Island and New York. Our clients have been excited about reducing the number of visits to our office for treatment and enjoy faster healing. This treatment method has been useful for those with an urgency to remove their ink, i.e., start of employment, induction to the military or law enforcement agency, social event etc.
