Now Offering Tattoo Removal!

We use the Sybaritic TA-2 Skin Clear which is a Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser. The Q-Switch laser is proven to be the most effective way of removing a tattoo. Non Q-Switched lasers and Intense Pulsed Light theraphy (IPL) are also used but are not as effective at tattoo removal. Plus there is the risk of them damaging the skin around the tattoo. Not all lasers remove all the pigments in a tattoo and some work better on certain colors then others.
