The trained technicians at Houston Tattoo Removal Clinic help delete unwanted tattoos using an FDA-approved, noninvasive laser. An initial consultation factors in everything from the tattoo's depth and age to skin type to determine the most effective treatment. During the procedure, a handheld laser hovers over the ink, delivering short bursts of energy to fade the pigmentation without damaging the skin around it. Though some designs may take up to 12 treatments to fully banish, many require only two visits, and virtually all patients observe no scarring afterward.
The laser technology can also fight age-related blemishes with services such as liver-spot removal and scar reduction, but Houston Tattoo Removal Clinic's true passion is in helping Texas youngsters erase the mistakes of their past. Aside from its outreach work with the Texas Youth Commission, the clinic proudly expunges tattoos from the faces and hands of kids aged 17 and younger for free—an act of benevolence that has helped wipe troubled teens' slates clean for a healthy, happy future.

MEDermis Facials' board-certified medical director captains a team of certified laser specialists and medical aestheticians, who help their clients reach aesthetic goals with the help of advanced technology. Together, the team has safely erased more than 200,000 unwanted tattoos of all shapes, sizes, and colors using Lutronic Spectra lasers. The cutting-edge apparatuses emit q-switched beams of high-energy light, which help disband ink particles and prepare them to be naturally jettisoned from the body via the lymphatic system—technical speak for "laser eraser". The lasers flit over skinscapes, fostering smooth, even skin with minimal risk of scarring, disrupting natural pigments, or attracting bored cats. In addition to getting rid of unwanted ink, the talented staff can also help to correct skin troubles with peels, microdermabrasion, and other skin care services.
In addition to removing tattoos, Professional Medical Corp's experienced doctors harness the photon-borne powers of the PinPointe FootLaser to painlessly and effectively whisk fungi from patients' nails. Additionally, the team helps clients safely and effectively manage foot pain through MLS laser therapy. Such therapies can treat pain associated with plantar faciitis, neuromas, arthritis, joint pain, sore muscles, post surgical swelling, and more. When used, MLS laser improves vascular activity, improves nerve function, boosts metabolic activity, and promotes faster healing.
"What is it going to be like when you're a grandparent with that ink on your body?" Clients of Blank Slate Laser Tattoo Removal never have to find out. Whether it's the initials of a former lover or a full-scale portrait of a hometown mayor, the technicians examine each tattoo to determine a realistic program to eradicate it. During the removal process, the beam from the Quanta Q-Plus C laser system passes through the skin and breaks up the ink for the body to reabsorb. Though movies have people convinced that being hit by a laser beam may obliterate body parts, in actuality, the laser feels like a snap from a rubber band. This snap is ameliorated by blasts of cold air from the laser system's cooling device. Post-treatment, skin may be red and swollen with minor blistering. Patients should wait six–eight weeks between treatments to allow adequate healing and ink fading.
