What You'll Get
Until engineers grasp the technology to create disappearing ink tattoos and self-shaving follicles, tats and fuzz will be attached to your body in ornery symbiosis. Today's deal severs the bond between your skin and the no longer welcome: for $185, you get $600 toward laser hair or tattoo removal treatments at East Side Laser Center in Shadyside. If you don't use the full $600 on your first treatment, the balance of your Groupon carries over to your next visit. Use it toward multiple treatments to permanently erase ink, hair, or hairy ink.
If it’s a body part and it has hair, East Side Laser Center can likely zap unwanted bodily threads into oblivion. Emancipate jailed bristles from your face with a smooth upper lip ($130 per treatment), or lift and separate your unibrow ($70). Make your countenance aerodynamic to facilitate time travel ($308), or slicken up for your bi-weekly swim meet with a full arm ($440) or leg ($605) treatment. Check out East Side Laser Center's complete list of services (look under the "single" column for value).
The skilled professionals at East Side Laser Center aim an intensely focused beam of light at clingy ink spots to break up tattoo particles. Get rid of that Cancun-induced tattoo of Popeye eating a can of rattlesnakes. Eventually, your tattoo will fade away like Casper in Egon Spengler's ghost trap. East Side offers advanced technology that allows removal more quickly and with less pain than most other facilities, which are often rusty and haunted. You will feel a slight sensation during the process, but it will elicit no more stinging than you endured while getting your tattoo. Tattoo removal starts at $165 for a 1-inch diameter tattoo (that sweet silver-dollar tat on the back of your neck) and goes up from there, depending on size.
Most of East Side Laser Center's clients are out introducing the sunlight to their newly tattoo- or hair-free skin, but one Google Mapper loved the way the clinic scrubbed that youthful indiscretion right off:
- After getting ink done back when I was a little younger, I never really thought about how it would look if I was meeting with a client with a giant shark on my forearm. I called East Side Laser Center and was a little nervous at first…but I am incredibly happy now that it has been removed. I'm not gonna lie, it didn't exactly tickle- but at the same time, it was well worth it. I would recommend East Side Laser for anyone looking to get their tattoo removed. – bayou bengal
