This week on The Daily Beat: We look into the health hazards in tattoo ink.
Today on the Daily Beat, Thursday, August 27, 2015: Part 2 of our interview with Bruce Klitzman, senior director of Duke’s Kenan Plastic Surgery Research Laboratories and associate research professor of surgery, speaks with us about his invention of a new tattoo ink called Freedom-2. It is made up of Food and Drug Administration-approved biodegradable and bioabsorbable pigments. Whereas removals currently take about eight to 10 laser treatments, the new tattoo ink can be removed in a single session.
Invented by Kim Koger, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and co-founder of Freedom-2, and Bruce Klitzman, senior director of Duke’s Kenan Plastic Surgery Research Laboratories and associate research professor of surgery, will enable people to get tattoos without worrying about long and expensive removal procedures.
Joe Virgillito chats with Prof. Gerald Friedman about COVID-19 and the case for Medicare For All. J. McVay and Jacqueline Soller discuss 2011 movie, ‘Contagion.’ Plus a preview of Scoville Unit’s upcoming BTR Live Studio session. | listen
