Though its primary purpose remains disrupting college lectures and movie screenings, laser light has also proven useful in the precise removal of human hair and unwanted tattoos. Today's Groupon lets you reap the benefits of America's favorite repurposed supervillain weapon: for $115, you get $350 worth of laser tattoo-removal or hair-removal services at Dr. Tattoff. This Groupon can be redeemed at one of three locations—in Beverly Hills, Encino, and Irvine. You must redeem your first laser-treatment session within six months.
Using state-of-the-art laser technology, Dr. Tattoff's professional staff uses intensely focused pulses of light to remove unwanted hair and ink. Experienced beam wielders will distance your body from unfortunate tattoos by aiming an intensely focused beam of light at permanent typos or a "Pluto is #1" banner to break up the ink particles. Tattoo removal starts at $49 per square-inch for the first five inches (minimum $75 per visit) and goes down from there depending on size. Most patients admit the process can be uncomfortable, although it's still less painful than light-saber treatments. Though the number of tattoo-removal treatments needed depends on the size and ferocity of the image, Dr. Tattoff offers a tattoo-removal guarantee: if you complete the number of recommended treatments and the tattoo ink is still detectable, up to one year of additional treatments will be finished for free.
If it’s a body part and it has hair, Dr. Tattoff's staff can utilize their laser-based expertise to banish unwanted follicles to a realm of darkness, where strands band together to form reduced-price Halloween wigs. De-fuzz faces for a smooth, beard-free front ($195 per treatment), or remove whisker-tipped lips ($70) without resorting to a Groucho Marx séance. If you'd prefer to remove body fur, opt for smooth underarms ($125), Brazilian bikini lines ($200), or gleaming legs (full for $395). Check out Dr. Tattoff's complete list of services, where you can also purchase treatments as a package for a total cost discount. Call ahead to schedule your appointment to permanently erase hair, ink, and hairy ink.
Two Groupons may be used for laser hair removal, but only one can be redeemed for tattoo removal. Dr. Tattoff offers a tattoo- and hair-removal guarantee, offering one year or six months of free services, respectively, for ink or follicles lingering on your skin after the recommended treatments.
Dr. Tattoff has been featured on a number of television programs, including The Doctors, ABC World News, Dr. 90210, and LA Ink. The Beverly Hills location gets a four-star average rating from Yelpers, and the Encino location gets a 4.5-star average rating.
- If you have a tattoo you want to get removed, I definitely recommend Dr. Tattoff in Beverly Hills. The staff is friendly and try to make the process fast and painless. – Joanna P., Yelp
- I was so happy after the first procedure -- most of the black outline was gone and the colors were fading already. It was totally worth the cost and pain (neither of which were astronomical). – Molly G., Yelp
