Freedom Ink

What’s New

Dr. Eric Seiger was recently featured on ABC and Fox News for starting Freedom Ink, a free tattoo removal service for ex-gang members. 

Dr. Eric Seiger recently featured on ABC to discuss Thermage.

"Here’s what thermage does – think of your skin as a pair of jeans that are just a little too big either because they stretched, or because you lost weight.

You can gain more weight and the jeans look good. Or if they’re too baggy, you can actually take them in, and that’s like surgery. But there’s a third thing. If they’re a little loose on you, you can actually take them and throw them in the dryer so they shrink up and look good. That’s’ what thermage does."
