New Tattoo removal system available in our area

A new tattoo removal treatment is now available on the gulf coast.
The machine used for the procedure is the only one within 250 miles.
   
This is the Trinity Laser System,  it uses 3 full powered wavelengths of light energy to treat the complete range of ink colors- including those sometimes difficult to remove blues and greens.

Dr. Jacque Lebeau also has a faster and more powerful machine called Ruby. It is used for the more difficult cases. Each removal session can cost around 150 dollars. Depending on the circumstances a custom could need up to 10 sessions.

Those who have already undergone the procedure at Dr. Lebeau's office say that the pain associated with the removal wasn't much greater than when they originally got the tattoo.

Dr. Jacque Lebeau- Lebeau Clinic
"The laser actually goes down and when it interacts with the ink it shatters it into smaller particles. The bodies immune system absorbs it from there."

"When we do the treatment it literally can take less than 5 minutes to do the treatment. And that is after care and putting on the bandage. Sometimes treatments can be literally seconds."

The Ruby Laser can be used to removing sun and age spots.
