AUSTIN'S BOTOX & COSMETIC FILLER SPECIALIST

IMG_5833I prefer natural-looking Botox and Cosmetic Filler results. That’s my thing and my style. Not everyone is like that, (ie. Hollywood frozen deer in the headlights face).

People contact me from all across the country asking for referrals for reputable cosmetic injectors. I have many colleagues to direct you to. If I don't have one in your area, here is my favorite answer and a great tip...

During your consultation visit, pay attention to the aesthetics of the staff. If the staff looks crazy and overfilled, that is likely the style of the injector. If you think the staff looks great, that’s a good sign.

DON'T ASSUME YOUR INJECTOR IS QUALIFIED

Experienced injectors know that certain fillers are particularly suited for specific areas of the face. You get what you pay for, and when it comes to your face, that is kind of important! In Texas, there are medspas allowing front desk people to inject under the title "Medical Injector", there are schools allowing students to inject, and if you don't do your research you could very well end up with a droopy eye or a face full of cosmetic filler that will take months to go away. Do your research and read real reviews.   MORE...

BEST LASER TATTOO REMOVAL: PiQo4

LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

We are excited to be the FIRST AND ONLY IN AUSTIN to offer this laser! The PiQo4™ laser  is the best LASER TATTOO REMOVAL system on the market, and is capable of treating more tattoo inks than any other picosecond laser. Users of the previous version already report results with 40% fewer treatments.

The system treats all tattoo colors, traumatic tattoos, and amateur tattoos.

Kristin Gunn has over 20 years in the tattoo industry, along with extensive knowledge in skincare. As an owner for 10+ years of Black Cat Tattoo Aftercare, Kristin is well versed in tattoo healing, tattoo inks and what it takes to effectively remove a tattoo.

HOW MANY AUSTIN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE?

The number of treatment sessions depends on the following:

  • The type of ink and how much of it was used
  • Color and depth of the ink
  • The location on the body (tattoos closer to the heart tend to clear faster than those that aren’t)

Everybody has different factors, but owners have seen over 50% reduction in treatments with the PiQo4 versus other lasers.

LASER TATTOO REMOVALDOES AUSTIN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL HURT?

Every patient has a different experience with tattoo removal. Does it hurt? It’s going to be uncomfortable. The question is, “How much?” Since PiQo4 treatments are completed much faster, patients often get through sessions without issue. Both cold air and topical numbing cream can be used on the area if needed.

WHEN WILL YOU SEE LASER TATTOO REMOVAL RESULTS?

Changes are immediate and lightening progresses with time and repeat treatments.

ABOUT THE PiQ04 TATTOO REMOVAL LASER

The PiQo4™ laser tattoo removal system is capable of treating more tattoo inks than any other picosecond laser and users ofthe previous version already report results with 40% fewer treatments.

The system treats all tattoo colors, traumatic tattoos, and amateur tattoos.

Four Wavelengths – Effective Shattering of 9 of the most Popular Ink Colors:

The PiQo4 enables you to treat the broadest range of tattoo colors, on wide range of skin types. Since each ink pigment color absorbs a very specific wavelength, the PiQo4 is equipped with four wavelengths- 1064nm, 532nm, 650nm and 585nm – that target 9 of the most frequently used colors ranging from light orange to dark black.

HOW DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?

The pigment in your tattoo will absorb the energy from the laser and shatter into smaller pieces, and then the super fast pulse of energy from the laser has a shockwave-like effect that assists with the shattering of the ink. As a result, the ink acts like sugar cube breaking apart into smaller granules.

HOW DOES THAT BODY AID IN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?

Once the ink is broken down by the tattoo removal laser, the body will respond by moving fluid to the area to help flush away the ink. This immune response will be obvious to the patient in the form of some swelling and redness in the area. Over the following days/weeks/months, the small shattered ink particles will be flushed away naturally.

WILL I NEED MULTIPLE LASER TATTOO REMOVAL TREATMENTS?

All tattoos have layers of ink, stacked on top of each other within the skin. The thick concentration of pigment particles cannot always be completely broken down in one session. We will go over your entire tattoo with our lasers, breaking up as much ink as possible.

CAN I USE TATTOO REMOVAL CREAM INSTEAD OF LASER TATTO REMOVAL?

No. We have seen no evidence that “magic creams” help to fade tattoos. At best, they may act like a mild skin bleach to lighten the surrounding skin. Looking at the ingredients and components of such products makes one wonder how they would purportedly remove tattoo ink. The medical community agrees with us — these creams are a gimmick, and a waste of time and money.

WHAT IS THE COST OF AUSTIN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?

Ask your tattoo artist if he has a discount code for his tattoo shop. If not, have them call and get one! The cost of each session depends on the size of the tattoo being removed. We will price each session during the Free Consultation but can give an estimate over the phone. We will categorize your tattoo according to its size, and we offer large discounts for buying a package of treatments in advance and treating multiple tattoos in the same session.

HOW MANY LASER TATTOO REMOVAL SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

The number of sessions needed to remove a tattoo depends on three factors: the age of the tattoo, the color of the ink, and the density of the ink.

  • Age: Older tattoos can be removed with fewer treatments than newer tattoos.
  • Color: Certain colors are more easily removed than others. Black and red tattoos are the easiest to remove. Orange, yellow, pink, purple, brown, and other shades are slightly more difficult to remove. The most difficult colors to remove are light green, light blue, and teal/turquoise.
  • Location: Because tattoo removal depends on the body to flush away the shattered ink particles, areas of the body with less circulation often take more time to show results. The toes, fingers, ears, and nose are areas that may show slower results.
  • Ink Density: Shading in a tattoo is easily removed. Some tattoos with letters use shading to fill in the outlines of the letters. Some tattoos with certain designs use shading for clouds or other visual effect.

ARE THERE LASER TATTOO REMOVAL SIDE EFFECTS?

No. This is a question that many new patients ask about, and we understand their concerns. We are the FIRST IN AUSTIN with the BEST tattoo removal laser. This will not scar the skin because the laser does not go deep enough in the skin to cause a scarring response. And, the pulse from the laser is so fast that only the tattoo pigmentation is affected and surrounding cells and tissue are left undamaged.

MY FRIEND HAD LASER TATTOO REMOVAL AND HAS A SCAR

Scarring was an issue 10 or 15 years ago when the equipment used for tattoo removal was relatively crude. There is no need to be concerned about scarring unless you have a history of keloid scarring, which our staff will discuss with you.

WHAT SIDE EFFECTS OF LASER TATTOO REMOVAL ARE COMMON?

Even the best tattoo removal laser has some little things you have to deal with. Most patients experience some redness, swelling, and minor blistering of the skin after a tattoo removal laser treatment. These side effects are temporary and your skin will heal back completely. We provide our patients detailed aftercare instructions to help them manage their skin after the treatment.

Why Platelets Rejuvenate Skin

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP is injected into specific areas of the skin (or applied topically) and acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.
