Board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Lane Graves brings his knowledge of safety and pain management to the treatments performed at his spa-like tattoo-removal studio, Rewind Laser Clinic. The staff at Rewind prides itself on cultivating a relaxed, zen-like atmosphere that strikes clients as soon as they walk through the door—the lobby is decorated with light, natural woods, live plants, and comfy couches, and ambient music fills the air. Once clients enter the treatment room, Dr. Graves and his team use the Quanta Q Plus C laser to zap inks of all colors, causing them to break down and get swept away by the body's immune system. Whether the goal is to fade the intensity of a tattoo for cover-up work or erase the name of a favorite J.K. Rowling character entirely, the team will create a treatment plan that's as efficient as possible.
When clearing the body of blemishes, the doctors and certified laser technicians at Inkfree, MD trade caustic chemicals for modern, FDA-approved laser systems. Effective against all ink colors, their tattoo-removal treatments permeate the skin to dissolve ink particles with light from a laser wand. Laser hair-removal sessions zap away excess peach fuzz, and laser facials nix sun damage, age spots, and errant freckles. Inkfree, MD's lasers even target sub-surface blemishes, freeing legs from the grip of spider veins and healing toenails made brittle by infections of unsightly, yellowing fungus.
Clean Canvas Laser’s technicians pulse beams from their Quanta Q-Plus C laser to rid patients of unwanted tattoos. The quick treatments are effective on a wide range of colors—even the typically stubborn green and blue pigments—and generally achieve total removal in 5–15 sessions.

The shades are drawn in a small room, where a lone figure refracts powerful beams of light through garnets and rubies. The light is helmed not by a supervillain bent on the earth's destruction but by one of Sugar Land Laser Tattoo Removal's expert technicians, who aims to obliterate unwanted ink. Wielding the double-laser Astanza system, staff experts combine three wavelengths of light as they fade away single and multicolored tattoos.
