SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SouthWest Tattoo Removal Program, a non-profit organization located in San Antonio, Texas, is providing free to low cost laser tattoo removal to help previously incarcerated individuals and victims of trafficking. Their mission is to provide inexpensive tattoo removal to create positive employment opportunities and help improve the lives of others. Individuals without gang, abuse and/or trafficking related tattoos may also utilize SouthWest Tattoo Removal Program's services at lower rates than normal retail and help the mission of the organization.

"A tattoo can be a very negative mark for some individuals," said Loretta Kent, founder. "SouthWest Tattoo Removal Program was created in hopes of giving people from former gang members to abused traffic victims a second chance for a brighter future. By removing ink that is misrepresentative of who those individuals are today, we're erasing negative reminders that control them from moving forward."

SouthWest Tattoo Removal Program has invested in the Astanza Duality Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. This system produces light energy through two versatile wavelengths – 1064 nm and 532 nm. Together, these wavelengths target a wide range of tattoo ink colors across all skin types. The Astanza Duality uses ultra-quick pulse durations and high pulse energies to emit unmatched high peak power for better ink shattering and faster results. The Duality selectively targets ink deep within the dermis without harming any of the surrounding skin tissue. Most patients see results after just one to two treatments.

"Loretta and the team at SouthWest Tattoo Removal Program go above and beyond to give their patients the best care possible," said Opal Taskila, Astanza Sales Representative. "We are extremely proud to have the Duality be part of such a selfless organization. Their drive for helping others and passion for giving back to the community will be sure to make them a top provider for tattoo removal in the San Antonio area."
