    Kelly L. - Tattoo Removal Scar

    November 17, 2008

    Kelly had a tattoo removal that resulted in a debilitating scar (tattoo removed surgically with 80-90 stitches)

    Her friends had given her the nickname “Frankenfoot” because the scars were so terrible

    Aside from vanity purposes her scar was very painful and made it difficult to wear shoes

    Visited a specialist, Dr. David Vasily, M.D. in 2006 because she was getting married and wanted to wear a nice pair of shoes and be comfortable

    Other doctors told her they couldn’t treat her foot, but Dr. Vasily said the laser technology would give her dramatic improvement

    After just 3-5 treatments she noticed a huge difference and was able to wear shoes

    She says the scar is 95% better 

    She now can wear shoes with no problem and said she looked great for her wedding
