Working as a laser hair-removal specialist, Carmen Vanderheiden heard a common sentiment from the clients who had tattoos: "Please, hit it. I want it gone." The Tataway founder told the Back Bay Patch that as many as 80% of these tattooed clients asked her not to shield their ink from the hair-zapping laser. Since opening her tattoo-removal parlor, Vanderheiden has found out why, listening keenly to the story beneath each inky regret. Some clients have told her that they're tired of a tattoo's design or its placement on their body. Others have confided that the tattoo feels like a stain from some painful time in their life.
These stories make no difference to Tataway's tattoo-removal chart. During free consultations, the clinically published Kirby-Desai scale tells Vanderheiden the number of laser treatments each client can expect based on skin type, lifestyle, the tattoo's pigments, location, and number of spelling errors. After each treatment, topical ointments and sterile dressing help sooth the skin and prevent infection.

Beauty is serious business at Allure Plastic Surgery Center, and the company's four plastic surgeons have been trained accordingly. Dr. Elliot Heller co-founded the American Academy of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, and his colleagues boast board certifications and advanced training in specialties such as reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, and nonsurgical body-contouring alternatives. These physicians focus on keeping their visitors comfortable as they usher them through the surgical suite or into the office for outpatient procedures such as injecting Botox, exfoliating with microdermabrasion, performing laser hair-removal, or simply supplying ultra-flattering mirrors.
Dr. Tal Dagan is a board-certified ENT and cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon for the nose, face, eyes, head, and neck. But his talents extend into less invasive procedures as well, many of which help patients stem the signs of aging with non-surgical chemical peels and cosmetic injections. When it comes to his ear, nose, and throat work, Dr. Dagan also treats a wide variety of ailments, such as vertigo, sinus allergies, and voice and swallowing disorders. Not all of his patients come to him in discomfort, though. His practice can also create molded earplugs for swimmers as well as custom-fit earphones and in-ear monitors for musicians.
Dr. Laurence Kirwan is a board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon. He specializes in face, breast, and body, along with noninvasive procedures such as Botox, fillers and laser treatments.

Dr. Kirwan is just as busy outside of the office. He has written several books on plastic surgery, and he participates in expert panels nationally and internationally.
