Zapatat’s Accelerated Removal Technique, which we call “ARTSM,” is the world’s fastest laser method for removing most tattoos. ARTSM is based the R20 concept of 4 laser treatments (“Passes”) in 20-minute intervals. Through extensive testing, Zapatat refined the technique, improving both safety and effectiveness. We call our procedure “ART” because our years of experience, trained specialists and refined techniques take our tattoo removal method far beyond the original R20 concept.
ARTSM is 20% technology and 80% technique/skill. A single ARTSM typically clears 50% – 85% of a tattoo’s ink density in just 3 months. Typically it’s the results of 5 – 7 standard treatments (9-12 months). ARTSM has no additional risk of side effects however ,it’s a rigorous treatment and proper after-care is essential. Our clients love Zapatat’s ARTSM because they get fast tattoo removal — in the fewest visits — with only a modest increase in cost, if at all. Zapatat has completed over 1,000 ARTSM sessions, which makes us the leading multy-pass provider serving the entire Washington, D.C., area including Virginia and Maryland.
