Here’s a review from one of Flash Tattoo Removal’s clients:
“They know what they are doing and they do for sure have the best laser out there. I had multiple treatments before from a company advertising on Groupon and it was the worst mistake I made. Call Dave and he will take good care of you. I still have 4 sessions to go and it’s fading really well.”
Here’s another one:
“I had a great experience with Flash Tattoo Removal. I truly felt at ease and comfortable at the get go, despite the fact that I would be receiving laser treatment! They also are the first to have the latest state of the art laser in Calgary – and that’s what really sold me when I found them (as I’ve previously been hesitant to proceed with having my tattoos removed)!! They were super informative and knowledgable and walked through all the steps with me. They made sure that I had all of my questions answered without feeling rushed and I really appreciated that. The first procedure was successful and I will no doubt be back for the next few visits! I can’t wait for my embarrassing tattoo to be removed and I am so glad that I found Flash Tattoo Removal!!”

“I’m getting laser tattoo removal on my eyebrows and have now gone for two sessions.
Every single employee I have encountered at this studio is so pleasant and kind. Brittany has gone above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and at ease with this procedure. She is relatable, professional and so happy.
Although the room for removal has a very medical clinic feel, the staff make the entire process very comfortable.
I suggest anyone looking for tattoo removal consider this location.”
Here’s another one:
“Life changing is all I can say! I had chin hair and as a professional it was embarrassing. Waxing and threading irritated my skin and was time consuming since I had to do it every 3 weeks. After a few laser treatments the hair was gone for good. I wish I had done this years ago. I guess better late than never!”

Here’s a review about Storwick Dermatology:
“This guy is awesome! I’ve been to 4 dermatologists in 10 years (cuz I can’t find one I like) but Dr. Storwick is great! He’s friendly, professional, did an extensive mole check (super thorough) and he has really high tech equipment.
His office is extremely clean and the staff were very professional. I’d highly recommend getting a referral to him! Lots of different services I noticed he offered: Botox, tattoo removal etc. he didn’t try to up sell me at all. This guy is the best I’ve seen by far.”
Here’s another one:
“I was referred here when I was living outside of Calgary about 15 years ago and THANK GOD.
Dr. Storwick is highly regarded (since he’s brilliant) and his clinic is amazing. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, although admittedly the phone recording can be a little annoying at first.
You need a referral for dermatology but if you’re considering laser hair removal GO HERE. Latest equipment and a highly trained nurse does it. Isn’t that more reassuring than a recent high school graduate in a hair salon who took a course on the weekend and is now shooting lasers at your crotch?! Thought so.”

Here’s a review about Tiki Town Tattoo’s services:
“Im currently seeing Keith for tattoo removal at Tiki. The shop is super clean, the staff always friendly and accomodating. I’ve recommended Keith to other friends for piercings, and have seen him my self for piercings in different locations. He is so well trained and is adamant about being on top of the latest in the industry, as well as making sure they are always extra hygenic in the shop. Unfortunately, he no longer pierces, but they have the best prices for tattoo removal that Ive seen (yes, its still an expensive procedure). Keith is very casual in manor, and easy to talk to when using the laser…he puts up with my nervous banter when Im being lasered (it hurts a LOT more than getting a tattoo) Cant wait for this sucker to be gone! (the tattoo)”
Here’s another one:
“Back in April I was looking for a neo traditional tattoo artist to do a scifi piece for me and came across Nicole May. She’s very talented and created exactly what I was hoping for, I couldn’t have asked for a better artist to do the piece for me and will definitely be going back to her for future pieces.”

Here’s a review about Skinpossible’s services:
“I am amazed by the customer service in this clinic! Everyone I’ve encountered is so pleasant to deal with that it’s almost like the owner who hires them makes them go through extensive customer service training. I have been coming here for my fillers, laser, Botox, cool sculpting and emsculpt. They are so Honest with what they can deliver and what they can’t. They tell me straight up if something will not work for me and not just try to con me of paying for a service I don’t need. They are always so descriptive and honest with the pain and what you will exactly feel for each procedure so I always know what I’m getting into and not surprised. My most recent visit was what made me have to write this review and it was because I took off my wedding and engagement ring left it on the table to get my emscult treatment done I had left without it because after a treatment you’re just all excited and happy for results you don’t think of anything else except how beautiful you’ll be after so I left and right away received a call from my esthetician and told me I left my ring there!!! I had a heart attack because this was a 3 carat ring and easily could have been stolen but the people here are so awesome!!!!”
Here’s another one:
“When I came to Skinpossible I was feeling insecure as I got microblading or scalp tattooing that turned out pretty bad on my forhead to change my
Hair line. The work was blotchy and a blue colour. So Stephanie at skinpossible did a fantastic job assuring me removing the ink was possible and comfortable. I had 1 tattoo removal treatment so far and 2 more to go. I’m so satisfied and happy with the service and quality control overall of Stephanie and the entire team. They found me a package deal cost, the place was clean and beautiful and the business was fantastic. Thank you and I’m looking forward to a lot more services from Stephanie.”

The colour turned out perfect too! She was so friendly and personable. I would recommend Vanity House to anyone considering permanent makeup. Great experience!!” —Mel Mohan
“Love my semi-permanent makeup! It really makes all the difference! I now have both a beautifully gentle eyeliner and really really great eyebrows.

I very highly recommend Vanityhouse by Tina Stephenson!” —Vannette Keaste
