How was your appointment with Dr. Chavez?

Oct 19, 2019
Dr. Chavez and her staff were fantastic! My eyebrow tattoos are now virtually undetectable to the naked eye after 3 to 4 treatments. When I went in for my consultation, I was immediately struck by Dr. Chavez’s complete honesty and professionalism. She explained the process and the difficulty of removing cosmetic inks. She did not set unrealistic expectations and explained that this might not be a quick fix. She also explained potential side effects, like potential skin darkening. She started with a small test area to see how my skin would respond before beginning treatment. Any skin darkening I may have experienced was short-lived. The layers of cosmetic inks disappeared with each treatment, transitioning from brown to auburn to yellow and finally back to normal skin tones. I am so thankful I took a chance on Clearwaves! Yes, I recommend them!
