An Effective Combination

The DESCRIBE® PFD Patch is a single-use optical clearing device accessory used during laser tattoo removal. The silicone Patch is infused with the optical clearing agent perfluorodecalin (PFD).1,2 Together, this combination offers advantages for you and your patients.

How DESCRIBE Patch Works

PFD is a metabolically inert, nontoxic liquid that resolves the laser-induced whitening, allowing for immediate re-treatment.2,3*

PFD may also improve laser access to tattoo pigment, which helps to break up ink particles.1,2

The Patch has a medical-grade silicone barrier that minimizes evaporation of PFD and conducts heat away from the epidermis to protect it.2

The Patch provides a physical barrier that may protect both you and your patients from potential laser-generated airborne contaminants.1,2



Use of the DESCRIBE® Patch results in up to 4x as many passes per treatment session (p<.0001).2,4†

With/Without DESCRIBE patch

Laser-induced whitening resolves more quickly when the Patch is used, allowing for more laser passes in a single treatment session compared to conventional treatment.2-4*
