Absolute Tattoo Removal - Cryo consultation

“You cannot do without this machine.” That’s how Absolute Laser Tattoo Removal nurse, Christina Swift, described the clinic’s reliance on their Zimmer Cryo 6 device.

Absolute Laser Tattoo Removal created this video testimonial and treatment demonstration to highlight their use of the ‘Zimmer Chiller’ for patient comfort and safety. They noted that the cryotherapy technology cools patients’ skin to as low as -30°C during laser procedures.

Swift explained that the Zimmer unit’s ease of operation facilitates a reduction of skin temperature prior to laser treatments. She began, “It’s a simple machine. It doesn’t break down. You just have the start button and the power – and that’s it – and you’re ready to go. This machine will get the patient’s skin to negative 30 degrees.”

In advance of the treatment, Swift talked her patient through the laser tattoo removal process. She explained, “I like to hold it in the area that we’re going to be working on for probably about 20 to 60 seconds to get the area cold. Then I’ll get the laser ready and we’ll just go to it.”

She continued to direct cold air from the Zimmer Chiller alongside the laser. The Zimmer skin cooling device helps to minimize pain and protect against thermal injury from laser procedures. Verbally checking in with her patient, Swift gained confirmation that the comfort level was quite tolerable. During the video demonstration, the short tattoo removal session was shown in entirety. The procedure was completed quickly. Happy with the results, Swift concluded, “One treatment – that’s awesome.” The patient appeared tranquil and free of pain and discomfort.
