The outside has all the markings of a house: steps that rise up to a covered front porch and windows carefully framed in a burnt sienna hue. But the tiny neon "open" sign gives it away. This is the home of Polina Salon & Spa, where Stella Briker spends her days. She dances her scissors through hair and paints on highlights using hair dye rather than the usual sidewalk chalk.
The certified laser technicians at SkinRenew Laser Tattoo Removal use an FDA-approved Quanta Q-Plus C laser to gradually remove unwanted tatts. The treatments are effective on all colors of ink, and can aim to erase tattoos or merely lighten them to make way for new body art. The number of treatments required depends on the colors used, the age of the tattoo, and the type of ink used, but most can be removed within 6–12 sessions. The Quanta Q-Plus C laser is known for being highly effective yet less invasive than other laser models.
