Mike is currently working in the following areas:
New laser tattoo techniques (including the glass slide method he devised in 2012)
New IPL clinical techniques to improve results
Theoretical analysis of the tissue denaturation processes
Pain relief using electrical impulses
Investigation of the laser-ink interaction in tattoos
Investigation of the effects of RF currents within the skin.
With a bit of luck, and some sweat, he hopes to publish more on this work in the near future.
Pit marks on a glass slide
|Above are some microphotographs of tattoo fragments embedded in glass slides following laser treatment with a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. These images show that ink particles fly out of the tattoo at high speed.|
