What You'll Get
Like octopi, tattoos contain ink, are typically found among sailors, and can frighten young children in swimming pools. Protect tots from scary tats with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a laser tattoo-removal package at Suncoast Skin Solutions in Lutz (up to a $597 value). Each package includes three sessions that treat a tattoo of up to 6 square inches in size.
At Suncoast Skin Solutions, Dr. Christopher Ewanowski and physician’s assistant Kristine Poyner wield a dual pulsating Ultralight II Laser System to absolve patients of black- and color-inked skin sins during tattoo-removal sessions. During each 15–30 minute treatment, patients recline in comfy surgical chairs that overlook a conservation site while light burrows into dermises to fade pigment. After 6–12 sessions, tattoos fully fade, ensuring a smooth surface for jotting down grocery lists. Following each session, patients experience feelings similar to intense sunburn on the treated area, followed by crusting and flaking of skin before healing within three weeks. For an additional charge, Dr. Ewanowski and his staff will numb skin prior to treatments with anesthetic or back-to-back viewings of Ingmar Bergman films to lessen lasers' prickly snares.
Ultralight II Laser System does not perform well on aqua and green ink.
