I have been wanting my tattoo removed for about 10 years and finally got up the courage to do it. I found Medermis Laser Clinic online and made an appointment. I was very apprehensive about all the glowing reviews (thinking they were fake), but after I met with Iris, I decided then and there to start my treatment. She told me it would take 6-8 sessions, and it actually only took four. I finished up last week. She and the rest of the staff were nothing less than professional, courteous and friendly. Honestly I think the one star poster is confused and talking about another company. It is polar opposite from my experience, and to call Iris a witch is cruel, ridiculous, and in no way accurate. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever dealt with in a professional setting.
As for the tattoo removal itself, she takes you in a room and you lie on a small bed. She places an ice pack on the tattoo for about 5 minutes. Then she removes it and puts a bigger ice pack on for about 30 seconds. Then she goes to work with the laser. I felt absolutely nothing. Seriously. Nothing! The ice numbs your skin so all you feel is a bit of pressure where the laser is hitting you. I had to laugh when it was over.
If you have been thinking about having yours removed, I HIGHLY recommend Medermis. I had a 1""x1"" tattoo removed for about $280 and four treatments. Way cheaper and much less painful than I ever expected.
