What you once loved... doesn't have to last forever!
Did your tattoo seem attractive in your 20s, but not so attractive today? Or is your tattoo a permanent reminder of what was just a temporary feeling? If so, you are not alone! That change of heart, or feeling of regret, is the #1 reason why people seek tattoo removal.
Fortunately, de-inking has progressed from a so-so, time-consuming process to a much faster, safe, and effective method. Finally, that unforgettable tattoo can be forgotten with the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available on the market - enlighten! The Cutera Enlighten™ Laser is the most advanced laser system for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.
Q: WHAT IS ENLIGHTEN?
enlighten is the most advanced laser system for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.
Q: HOW DOES ENLIGHTEN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL DIFFER FROM OTHER LASER TATTOO REMOVAL OPTIONS?
enlighten features extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses which efficiently and quickly break down the ink particles in tattoos. A 'picosecond' is one-trillionth of a second and is 1,000 times shorter than the 'nanosecond' pulses used in existing lasers for tattoo removal. Picosecond laser pulses have been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions than traditional laser used historically in the past.
Q: HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
The total number of treatments varies depending on the composition, age of the tattoo, depth and the color of the ink, as well as the size of the tattoo. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions, and your provider can give you a better idea of the total number of treatments needed during your complimentary consultation and once your treatments begin.
Q: WHY ARE MULTIPLE SESSIONS REQUIRED?
Tattoo ink is deposited deep in the skin. In order to reach all of the ink in the skin, multiple treatment sessions are needed for clearance. The depth, size, and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed.
Q: WILL THE TATTOO COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR?
In many cases, yes. However, it is very important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others. Treatment goals will be determined during your consultation.
Q: IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Patients compare the procedure to a rubber band being snapped against your skin. Topical or local anesthetics may be available from your provider to minimize discomfort.
Q: DOES IT MATTER WHERE I GO?
YES! Chances are, your tattoo artist told you that the difference between a great tattoo and a poor tattoo is the artist. The same goes for tattoo removal. The effectiveness of the removal all depends on the experience and the skill of the provider and the techniques they use.

Haley was amazing! She was so nice and so good at explaining everything she was doing, which I appreciated! I will definitely be back for future services with her!– Rachel
My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage with cupping from Kayla Hayes. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!– Leah
Express Facial + Brow Tint and Wax with Morgan!! I don’t get much “self-care” time so I chose the Express Facial and it did NOT disappoint! Fresh face and cute brows to start the new year off!– Ashley
Walking into this space is like stepping into a bubble of love and beauty. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly. The services provided are superb. I loved my massage with Angela. Thank you for what you all do to help the rest of us feel ah-MAZING!– Debra
I just wanted to say that after my appt with Haley last Friday, I was feeling super optimistic that I could have clear skin again. After my chemical peel, my skin continued to get clearer and clearer. I started using the EltaMD Skin Care lotions and really love them. The ladies up front were super nice, as was Haley, and I am grateful for that. Thank you guys so much! I will def be back!!– Terri
Mary Johnson did such a great job helping to remove my frown line. I was nervous and she put me right at ease. Quick and no pain! I would highly recommend her. Revive offers such a relaxing atmosphere– Amanda
Definitely a 5-star Medical Spa!!! Just finished my 1st ever dermaplaning appointment with Morgan. Morgan was very friendly, told me exactly what she was doing and the benefits of dermaplaning. I was so excited to see my results!!– Morgan
I was really impressed with how Kisha mapped out my face before she injected my Botox. I have had Botox at other places and have never experienced this. Her experience and treatment process truly put me at ease during my appointment. I will definitely be back!– Reece
Wow! - is all I have to say! Big city level of service. Any treatment I've had here so far was top notch and every staff member I've worked with was super knowledgeable, professional and made sure I was comfortable.– Sarah

I drove two hours from my home, past Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, to Revive for toxin and lip filler. I have done my research on injectables for a while now and was impressed with Revive's website. Professional and appealing!– Sandy
Mary was great! She spent time with me. She answered all of my questions since this was my first time getting injectables. She really analyzed what would be the best options for me based on my concerns. The results were awesome. I felt like in 2-3 days I could already notice a difference. After two weeks the results were remarkable. I definitely recommend others to consult with Mary and take advantage of Revive's great new client discount!– Jessica
You cannot go wrong with Revive at The Group! The staff are incredibly experienced and very friendly. When I began getting aesthetic treatments, I knew I needed to go to a place I trusted. Thank you for the best experience as a first time client of aesthetic treatments and Botox!– Ashley
I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!– Kara
Tattoo Removal with Lisa was lovely and relaxing. She went through a thorough consultation so I knew what to expect. I'm extremely happy with the process and results after just one treatment! I highly recommend Revive and Lisa for any tattoo removal needs. Thank you THANK YOU!– Ann
