Now that you’ve decided to have it removed, Limelight Medspa can give you a state-of-the-art tattoo removal option to help you restore that mindset: we make the removal process as smooth and pain-free as possible to reinstate your pride and confidence in your skin and body.

Fortunately, today’s laser technology allows Dr. Tripti Burt and Dr. Neena Will at Limelight Medspa in Chicago to perform laser tattoo removal in a safe and effective way.
