Fresh Start for a Mother of Two

Posted in Uncategorized

Posted in Uncategorized

When Lasercare Tattoo Removal opened for business just over two years ago, it was to fill a void in tattoo removal in Alaska.  All of the lasers being used for tattoo removal were older technology with many unwanted side effects, and they were not very successful at removing tattoos.  Before bringing a new laser to Alaska, Lasercare performed extensive research on any and every laser used for tattoo removal.
