Removal with the RevLite SI Laser from Cynosure now at Murphy Plastic Surgery starting at $99

RevLite is the most advanced laser for removing black and multi-colored tattoos for any skin type.

Murphy Plastic Surgery is dedicated to the fight against breast cancer. We will gladly remove any radiation tattoos, due to breast cancer treatments, complimentary. You must be “cancer free” for 5 years, and have the approval of your doctor and/or radiologist.

What to Expect

With the RevLite laser, your’re getting the most advanced technology to safely remove tattoos with maximum success and comfort. As the light energy gently vibrates and shatters the tattoo ink into easily eliminated micro-particles, the short pulses feel similar to snaps of small rubber bands, followed by a warm sensation.  A temporary whitening will follow the first treatment; over time, the tattoo particles will fade through the lymphatic system and the skin will retun to its natural color.  Dark blue, black and red inks offer highest degree of success, followed by orange and purple; green and sky blue may require additional treatments for significant fading.  Tattoo treatment ranges from 4-15 sessions. At Murphy Plastic Surgery we offer packages of all sizes. The bigger the package, the more you save. Pricing starts at $99 per treatment.  After numbing cream is placed on the tattoo, the actual treatment session only takes 10 to 15 minutes.  Tattoos must be at least 3 months old before tattoo removal treatment can occur.

The RevLite SI is the MOST ADVANCED technological laser for safely and successfully removing tattoos without damaging or scarring the surrounding skin.

We are the only local practice using the RevLite SI laser for tattoo removal treatments.

 

Congratulations to Sandra, the winner of our

Most Regretted Tattoo Contest!

Here is Sandra’s story:  “I got Buster Bunny holding a cherry because the person who got it did not deserve it.  Sounded great to a headstrong, almost 18 years old.  But, that was 20 years ago.  I never planned on having a child, so the placement did not seem to matter.  Buster is now meaningless, deformed, stretchmarked and has hairy feet.  It is simply embarrassing that I thought I needed to make this statement.  I am embarrassed to see myself naked.”

Most lasers only have two wave lengths to target dark blue, black and red inks. The RevLite features four wavelengths to target a wide range of colors, from blue, black and red, to orange and purple, and even difficult to treat green and sky blue.

Tattoo Reversal Made Safe and Effective

The most advanced technology comes in the form of Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers using PhotoAcoustic Technology which safely penetrate the skin and targets each tattoo ink color with specific wavelengths, causing tattoos to gradually fade during a course of 4-15 treatment sessions.

My review is really for the sweet girl Heather that works here. This place offers more services than just plastic
surgery. They have massage and salon services at their co-business Renew MD, face cleaners and dietary products. ANYWAY, Heather is wonderful and friendly and I thought she needed her own review under this business :)

I went in for a consultation and was very impressed by the staffs’ professionalism…

Cathy 6/2011

After breast feeding 4 babies, losing weight, and turning the corner of 40 my breasts took a dive to the South Pole.
My consultation with Dr. James Murphy was relaxed and I felt he was veryknowledgable of what I needed to have done. Their was no pressure from him oranyone in his office to set the procedure up. But I knew I would not be happy until I had a lift and breast augmentation done. I must say it is quite an improvement from the day I walked in his office. My breasts are back to looking
youthful & perky and Dr. Murphy took all my considerations in. I didn’t even have to take pain meds. I don’t know why I waited so long to have it done. I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy for breast lift and augmentation to any woman. What are you waiting for?

Sue 10/2011

I felt confident with Tracy and reassured. She took all the time necessary to answer my questions. I feel good about the whole process and very appreciative for the great pricing. Thank-you so much.

I went in for a consultation and was very impressed by the staffs’ professionalism. Everyone really made me feel at ease and confident. Dr. Murphy was very informative and willing to guide the patient to making a decision that is best for them.

Cathy 6/2011

I have been a patient of NNPSA (now Murphy Plastic Surgery) for over 13 years now. Dr. Murphy has quite frankly saved my life! I first met Dr. Murphy in 1999 when I had a breast augmentation. And in June 2010, he performed a preventative bilateral mastectomy due to a very strong family history and the fact a mass was found on my mammogram. My mother and sister are both breast cancer survivors, having had the same cancer, same breast, same age. And that age was 48. During my annual mammogram when I was 48, they found a mass. After two years of MRIs, ultrasounds, and “watching” it, I decided to take back my fear of breast cancer and take control of my life. Dr. Murphy helped me do just that!! Even after five surgeries/procedures, I have never looked back for even one second and/or regretted my decision. I don’t think I could have done it without the unwavering support of Dr. Murphy and his staff each step of the way.

Heather, 6/2012

Their was no pressure from him oranyone in his office to set the procedure up.

Sue 10/2011

I want to thank Dr. Murphy and his staff for making my surgery go so smoothly. First of all, I am extremely pleased with the overall results. I was looking to shed some years without changing my look and we succeeded very well. The staff throughout the orientation, during the procedure, and after, took a personal interest in how I was doing. They positively reinforced me every step of the way. I am thoroughly pleased with the entire experience. Any further enhancements will definitely be done by Dr. Murphy and his outstanding staff.

Dear Dr. Murphy:
I keep trying to figure out the right works to express to you the blessing we felt with your being the surgeon on duty the night (2/20/09) of Chrystle’s horrific snow boarding accident and the simple thank you, heartfelt, seems to cover it the best.
She is even more beautiful now as the accidents (remember she totaled the car on the Monday) have forced her to reevaluate some (make that all) choices she was making and she has matured into a very different individual than she was prior to the accidents. However the fact that your incredible skill as a Plastic Surgeon returned her as she was prior is still unbelievable to us and for that we are grateful beyond words.

Fondly, C.

Dr. Strand,

Thank-you for your amazing work.  I came to you on such high recommendations and I will continue to highly recommend you.  Without much time or consulting, you gave me a beautiful set of breasts and an increase in my self esteem.  Thank-you for your time and talent.

Dr. Murphy is awesome as well as Tracie Murphy and the entire office staff! They treat everyone special and give individualized attention for all your needs and questions. Great detail is given for whatever procedure you are having. They truly are perfectionists at this office and are located right next to the surgery center. Look no further for the best plastic surgery Doctor and staff in the Reno area.

My face-lift has made such a difference in the way I see myself. Dr. Murphy & his staff are extremely caring and compassionate people. I felt very comfortable in their care. I had a major heart scare 6 months after and his staff called my home to check on me. That says a whole lot in my book! I would never consider going to anyone else! Dr. Murphy & staff—YOU’RE THE BEST!!!!!

-Kim Sammons

Some of the surgeons I saw said it couldn’t be done. The surgeons who did my radical mastectomy left my chest in a terrible state. Then I made an appointment with Dr. James Murphy and immediately I like him. He has a great bedside manner, cheerful, encouraging and supportive. He told me “yes” that I was candidate for breast reconstruction. He showed me pictures of his results and immediately I knew I could trust him. The whole experience was amazing and I am very happy and delighted with the results. My new breast looks excellent, natural, full, size, the shape I wanted and there is hardly any scaring. Dr. Murphy is an excellent surgeon who can be trusted with his amazing abilities. I would encourage any patient to submit to his care and feel comfortable know he is going to do a wonderful job with his talents. I speak from my personal experience and it was a good one. Dr. Murphy is an excellent surgeon, I highly recommend, and has improved the quality of my life.

Dear Doctor Murphy,


I want to thank you very much for your concern and care for me throughout my recent operations. As you know, I was a little reticent to have this operation at my age, but my husband wanted me to get it taken care of. I am grateful that my friend recommended you. Your reputation is par excellent with the Renown medical group and they made every effort to make me feel comfortable and at ease with my surgeries. Thank Meghan for all her help – she always seems to be there and had an answer to any questions I had.

Sincerely, Karen 2/2011
