What is

Tattoo elimination
 

A tattoo is something that can mark you for all your life. When patients decide to remove it, sometimes they think it is impossible and that from their regret it will leave a mark forever. But through time, technology has allowed that this symbol, image or work that you once tattooed, and that you no longer want to have, be removed from your skin, without surgical procedures and without an anti-aesthetic scar.

Tattoos of different sizes, shapes and colors may be vanished through SPECTRA LASER. This procedure is getting our clients happier because it is noticeable as soon as sessions are performed. From the first session, how tattoos are erased is seen in a matter of minutes (watch video).
