What You'll Get
Despite their destructive cinematic depictions, most lasers are content with assisting slideshow presentations and translating DVDs for people who don't speak fluent binary. Embrace the altruistic portion of the electromagnetic spectrum with today's Groupon to D-Inked. Choose between the following options:
- For $50, you get one session of laser tattoo removal for an area up to 16 square inches (up to a $150 value).
- For $100, you get one session of laser tattoo removal for an area up to 32 square inches (up to a $200 value).
Both options include a free consultation.
Focusing exclusively on laser tattoo removal, D-Inked's certified staff whisks away unwanted skin paintings, leaving behind body canvases ready for a new tattoo in an average of four to eight treatments. Initial sessions begin with in-depth consultations, in which the amplified-light experts answer all patient questions about the procedure and evaluate the tattoo's colors, grammatical accuracy, and ink density and depth before photographing the area to be treated. Sessions typically finish in less than 15 minutes and employ the Astanza Trinity laser, an FDA-approved light intensifier designed exclusively for tattoo termination. Able to generate beams across the electromagnetic spectrum, the Astanza can remove a wide range of pigments. Tattoos do not burn away, but instead receive calibrated laser light in bursts lasting only 6 billionths of a second, or the amount of time it takes to fall in love. Broken apart by the laser, pigment is reduced to pieces small enough to be scrubbed away by the body's immune system.
While patient experiences vary, Astanza pulses have been likened to rubber-band snaps, and a cooling machine hovers nearby to provide relief. The Astanza laser is designed to greatly reduce the risk of scarring from treatments, though treated areas may experience sunburn-like symptoms, including reddened skin and blistering. During their consultations with D-Inked's staff, clients can discuss removing only certain parts of tattoos, such as text or that second otter that makes the forest scene too busy, and patients may also opt to apply the value of this Groupon to treatments of larger areas.

When it comes to why their clients want to have tattoos removed, the technicians at D-Inked have heard everything from “wrong name” to “new job.” Regardless of a patron’s motivation, they use only one tool to remove tattoos: the FDA-approved Astanza Trinity laser, which shines in multiple hues to break down an array of ink colors. The number of treatments necessary to completely oust old ink varies based on factors such as the tattoo’s color and how old it is, because newer ones can run away from lasers faster. Most clients need six to eight sessions. As for pain, most say that it feels like a rubber band snapping the skin, a level of discomfort comparable to getting a tattoo.
