The word "tattoo" is derived from the Polynesian word “tatu” which means, “to mark”.
Ever since this practice of permanently marking one’s body began some thousands of years ago, there have been those who wanted the deed undone. Over the years, techniques used to remove tattoos have included dermabrasion, acids and surgical excision, each option with its own drawbacks.
Today, advances in laser technology allow for safe, fast and effective treatments.
Q-Switched lasers are the gold standard for tattoo removal and are characterized by their ability to deliver large amounts of energy in incredibly small bursts, measured in nanoseconds. This unique ability allows for the tattoo ink pigment to be fragmented without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
Westside Laser & Light uses the REVLITE SI laser from Hoya Con Bio and are currently the only clinic in Canada to offer this technology. This advanced platform allows us to perform our treatments with unparalleled flexibility, greater efficacy and patient comfort.
Larger spot sizes and significantly more power allow for both faster and fewer treatments.We use the Zimmer Cryo-6 cold air for added patient comfort during the treatment. Between treatments, we provide our patients with an advanced post-treatment recovery kit¹ to maximize comfort and satisfaction.
Our Award-Winning clinic is located in the Springborough Professional Centre, just off 17th Ave SW near the 69th Street LRT Station and the Westside Recreation Centre.
The price for a single treatment begins at $99.
