As we visited some places to get a Fresh Start on our professional career in Houston and Killeen we ventured to a few tattoo removal clinics in the Austin Texas area. After searching the Google reviews we settled on Austin Affordable Tattoo Removal as they were the only treatment center with a 5 star rating.
Eraser Clinic is known as “The Laser Tattoo Removal Experts.” The clinic safely removes tattoos using innovative laser technology for faster healing and fading. Laser tattoo removal is effective because it focuses laser energy on the tattoo to break up the color.
Eraser Clinic uses lasers that are exclusively designed for tattoo removal. The clinic removes all colors and types of tattoos, regardless of where they were placed on the body or their age. Typical treatments at Eraser Clinic take only 60 seconds to complete; most professional tattoos take up to 12 treatments to be completely removed.
Westlake Dermatology performs a variety of dermatological procedures, such as plastic surgery, and also does tattoo removal treatments. Westlake Dermatology is one of the first 15 clinics in the world that uses the new PicoSure™ laser tattoo removal treatment.
PicoSure™ delivers short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in a process that is up to 100 times shorter than the nanosecond technology used in most traditional laser tattoo removal systems. PicoSure removes even the most complex tattoos efficiently and with as few as 8 treatments.
However, one major downside of PicoSure is that it currently cannot be used on African-American Skin. It is also unable to remove cosmetic tattoos like eyeliner or eyebrow tattoos.
Pigment Tattoo & Laser Removal is a tattoo studio that also does laser tattoo removal, which lends the studio a unique expertise in this field. The studio establishes how many treatments the tattoo will need for removal during a consultation with the patient. If more sessions are needed after the first amount, they are provided at no extra cost. Pigment also price-matches against other laser tattoo removal services. They are committed to providing the best service possible, at the best price.
Pigment uses PiQo4 lasers that can be used in either nanosecond or picosecond mode. This delivers larger spot sizes that provide deeper treatment that is up to 40% faster than other lasers.
Pigment is also a participant in the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program, a nonprofit that removes gang and prison tattoos, at no cost, to help individuals improve their lives and gain meaningful employment. The Fresh Start Program also removes tattoos that were forcibly applied. Pigment is one of only four tattoo removal studios that participates in this program.
MEDermis says that it is the only tattoo removal studio in Texas that specializes in laser tattoo removal. MEDermis uses the Spectra by Lutronic laser to safely remove tattoos with minimal risk of scarring for the surrounding tissue.
The entire MEDermis staff has been with the laser clinic since MEDermis opened 9 years ago. This consistency may ease concerns among potential patients about inexperienced staff.
