Your wedding day should be the happiest day of your life, and having an unwanted tattoo should not get in the way of your joy! Whether it is an ex’s name or a tattoo visible with your dress or tuxedo, we want to help you have skin you love on your wedding day.
While we cannot make your tattoo disappear over night, with enough time we can help you fully remove your tattoo before your wedding day. Planning ahead is key, because tattoo removal can take between 12 and 18 months, depending on the tattoo. Even if we do not have time to achieve complete removal, your tattoo can be drastically lightened and easier to cover with makeup.
We do not want a tattoo preventing you from wearing the dress you love or not taking certain photographs to avoid it being seen - you should feel beautiful on your wedding day and we can help!
Additionally, consider a carbon laser facial to clear your complexion and brighten your skin before your wedding day - we know you’ll love the results!
Tattoo removal is a safe and effective process that uses state of the art technology to provide amazing results, but there ARE risks involved. In order to minimize the chance of any adverse side effects, here is a list of what NOT to do in the days and weeks leading up to your treatment.
It is important to be honest with your technician before you get a laser tattoo removal treatment about your sun exposure, medications, and medical conditions. This is vital to ensure that you do not experience negative side effects and have the best removal process possible.
If you are thinking about getting your tattoo removed, or perhaps already undergoing laser treatment, it is important that you educate yourself on how to properly care for your body and skin during the treatment process. While the laser breaks down the ink, it is up to your body to flush out those broken down ink particles. The healthier you are, the more efficient your bodily functions will be. Namely, it is the lymphatic system that rids our bodies of foreign objects such as ink particles. Keep in mind that it takes time for the body to process the ink once it is broken down - this is why fading may not be noticeable until 4-6 weeks post treatment.
Using laser technology to remove tattoos is undoubtedly the safest and most effective way available, but lasers put a significant amount of heat and energy into the skin and, although uncommon, adverse reactions can occur. Luckily, there a few things you can do to ensure faster fading and significantly lower the chances of any negative side effects.
Remember: LESS IS MORE.
Seriously, leave it alone and drink some water.

There are some side effects to laser tattoo removal, and there are specific ways to sooth your skin to allow your body to recover and remove your tattoo.
Laser technology has made huge advances in the last few years and the lasers designed specifically for tattoo removal are able to effectively remove ink of all colors. The laser works by breaking down the tattoo pigment in your skin, with different wavelengths to target harder to remove colors (shades of green). As the ink breaks down, your body works to metabolize and remove it entirely. While it does hurt, the treatment is targeted and performed quickly - the laser works fast to break down the ink so the average tattoo can be treated in under a few minutes. The smaller the tattoo, the fewer pulses necessary to break down the ink and the faster the treatment. The laser emits intense light that is absorbed by the tattoo pigment, creating a shockwave, and the pigment is fragmented and therefore easier for the body’s immune and lymphatic systems to flush through your body. Once the ink is broken into smaller particles, your body works to flush these ink particles out of your system. That is why your health is critical to the success of laser tattoo removal - the healthier you are, the better and faster the ink particles will be flushed from your system, ultimately saving you time and money.
The laser only targets the tattoo ink, and there is virutally zero chance of scarring. Any scarring is most commonly the result of getting the tattoo itself. Laser treatments are the safest and most effective method for removing unwanted tattoos. Don’t trust the quick fix promises of creams or topical treatments - they will not give you the same results as laser treatments and they come a much higher chance of adverse effects. Tattoo removal is a process, because most professionaly done tattoos will take at least 6-8 treatments to completely remove - but with your commitment and our laser, you can get your skin completely back!
Do you have sun and age spots that you want to have removed from your face, neck, arms, and hands? We can help! Spots that are the result of sun damage can be removed quickly and effectively with our laser. The laser targets unwanted pigment without damaging surrounding skin, and will leave you with clearer, younger looking skin.
Sun and age spots can be removed in as little as one treatment. The length of each treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated but can be completed in just a few minutes! It is a safe, simple, and non-invasive treatment that produces real results.
Once treated, a scab will form over the area and flake off after a few weeks, leaving clear skin behind.
This really does permanently remove your sun and age spots. While new spots may appear on these areas of your skin, this won’t happen if you avoid sun prolonged exposure. Birthmarks and other marks not caused by the sun may reappear slowly over time. Limiting sun exposure and wearing SPF 30 sunscreen (or higher) when outdoors will help to ensure your skin stays free of age spots.
The cost of age spot removal depends on the area and number of spots that will be treated, but it is affordable and effective!
The Carbon Laser Facial, also known as the "Hollywood Peel” is a fast, little to no downtime procedure that rejuvenates the skin, treats and prevents acne, and kills bacteria. It also evens out your complexion and stimulates collagen production to leave you with clearer, healthier looking skin.
It is a gentle procedure and safe for most skin types, and while one treatment improves your skin, it is most effective if you have several treatments. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Kim Kardashian, use this facial to get their skin ready for the red carpet - and now it's your turn to be treated like a celebrity.
Why It’s the Best Option
This is not a chemical peel and there are no harsh chemicals or products applied to your skin. No abrasive tools or scrubs are used. And unlike other treatments, adverse reactions are rare and there is little to no downtime!
It completely improves your skin. Not only does it even your skin tone and help to prevent acne, it kills bacteria, reduces appearance of fine lines and acne scars, and thoroughly clears out your pores . It’s gentle yet effective.
What to Expect
You should not wear makeup (eye makeup is okay) to your appointment. Metal eye shields are used to protect your eyes from the laser. The carbon mixture is applied to your skin and left for about 10 minutes to sink into your pores. Then, the laser is used to evaporate the carbon mask, taking oil, bacteria, and dead skin with it while creating a thermal, exfoliating effect. There is a slight snapping noise as the laser passes over your face and you may feel a slight prickling sensation. We then pass the laser over the skin again to take off any excess carbon and stimulate collagen production.
Your skin will feel so soft and your pores will be visibly improved, in just 30-45 minutes!
The laser treatment is only part of the tattoo removal process; half of the process is the laser breaking down the ink, and the other half is how you treat your body. Below we have some tips to help your body metabolize the ink faster by improving your lymphatic system, which supports your immune, digestive, detoxification, and nervous systems.
Healthy habits can improve your body’s ability to flush out the tattoo ink and reduce the number of treatments necessary to remove your tattoo.
