At the time, she loved the tattoo. It
was beautiful, vibrant and feminine – a
tiny ladybug on the top of her hand,
between her thumb and pointer finger.
Her mother begged her to get it in a
different spot, somewhere it could be
hidden if need be. But Julie wanted the
world to see.
As the years went by, the tattoo slowly
faded; eventually the little black dots
lost their definition and she found
people questioning the small piece of
art, instead of complimenting it. “What
is it?” and “What does it mean?” were
phrases she heard almost daily, and
tried to get used to. However annoying
the beetle had become, it wasn’t until
the day Julie was denied a job, at the
age of 32, that she knew she had to do
something about it.
“The manager and I were joking, and I
felt like I was nailing the interview,” Julie
remembers. “Of course, my hands were
under the table the whole time. When the
interview was over, I went to shake her
hand and her eyes instantly went to the
tattoo. I saw her eyes widen and I knew.
I called to check in a few days later... and
the position was filled,” she said.
But Julie had a friend who had been
raving about the Fountain of Youth Skin
Renewal Centre for years, as an avid
supporter of its injectables and laser
hair- removal services. When Julie found
out about its tattoo removal services, it
was a no-brainer – she give it a shot.
So how does it work? Fountain of Youth
uses Cutera’s state-of-the-art Enlighten
system – one of only three machines
of its kind in the state of Michigan.
Featuring dual-pulse durations and three
unique laser wavelengths, Enlighten
has emerged as the premier solution
for laser tattoo removal because of its
power to clear all ink colors from the
skin, and in fewer treatments than other
Ink particle size; tattoo color; depth of
ink particles; tattoo age; and location
on the body are factors in the speed of
clearance and number of treatments. But
on average, results are attained in four
to six treatments. In addition to tattoo
removal, Enlighten can also remove
unwanted pigmented lesions, and can
address skin revitalization concerns.
To begin the treatment, a registered
nurse administers Lidocaine and topical
numbing to the tattooed area. Then, a
Certified Laser Specialist administers
the treatment. The Enlighten laser works
by firing a beam of light through the
skin in extremely short bursts. The light
targets the ink, shattering it into dust-like
particles. Once the particles are small
enough, the white blood cells in the
body absorb them and carry them to the
liver to be expelled naturally through the
Once the process was explained to
Julie during her free consultation, she
was sold. The Fountain of Youth even
set her up with in-house financing, so
her removal didn’t have to break the
bank. After several treatments, Julie’s
tattoo was gone forever, along with the
judgment that had followed her through
her younger years.
The Fountain of Youth gave Julie back
her confidence, and there is a broad
range of other services that can do the
same for women of every type. “From
injections to lasers to fat reduction, we
can correct the issues that hinder you
from realizing your natural beauty,” said
Sue Alderson, R.N., owner of Fountain

sculpting, spider-vein removal, waxing,
skin tightening and much more. The
Fountain of Youth also offers top-of-the-line
medical-grade skin care products
that will maintain progress and enhance
“I’m so happy with my results. The staff
at Fountain of Youth made me feel
very comfortable. The atmosphere was
professional and relaxing at the same
time. The team of registered nurses and
estheticians were detail-oriented and
very friendly,” said Julie.
Sue Alderson added, “At Fountain
of Youth we make your beauty and
confidence our priority. Whether you are
looking to reduce the look of wrinkles,
eliminate fat, or just looking to exfoliate
your skin, we are here to help.”
