A Free Gift to Breast Cancer Survivors - Laser Tattoo Removal

To honor breast cancer survivors, New York City Dermatologist Dr. Arielle Kauvar, whose work has been featured on this blog, is offering a very special service for women who have gone through radiation treatments.

Dr. Kauvar is graciously donating her time to offer free laser removal of medical tattoos used to guide radiation for breast cancer treatments. Many times, women may want these small freckle-like reminders of their treatment removed. The markings may also be visible above a low-cut dress, or bathing suit.

Here's the info:
