What People Say About Dr. Lauren Chavez, MD

Dr. Chavez and her staff were fantastic! My eyebrow tattoos are now virtually undetectable to the naked eye after 3 to 4 treatments. When I went in for my consultation, I was immediately struck by Dr. Chavez’s complete honesty and professionalism. She explained the process and the difficulty of removing cosmetic inks. She did not set unrealistic expectations and explained that this might not be a quick fix. She also explained potential side effects, like potential skin darkening. She started with a small test area to see how my skin would respond before beginning treatment. Any skin darkening I may have experienced was short-lived. The layers of cosmetic inks disappeared with each treatment, transitioning from brown to auburn to yellow and finally back to normal skin tones. I am so thankful I took a chance on Clearwaves! Yes, I recommend them!

Very happy with the results of my treatments. Would highly recommend Dr. Chavez. She is always very accommodating in scheduling my appointments because I have to drive 180 miles to get to her office.

Dr. Chavez is one of the most kind yet professional doctors I have met. She takes the time to get to know you as a patient and gives realistic advice on procedures which will be best for you. Her staff is very personable and helpful. I have been a patient for over three years and I am still very pleased with the results of the procedures I received. I would highly recommend Dr Chavez and her staff to anyone.

My permanent makeup eyebrow tattoo removal has been progressively successful over the course of several treatments. Each time, the technician makes the procedure as comfortable as possible (numbing, special cold air application, etc.) , and Dr. Chavez is attentive to my needs. My favorite part is seeing the before and after pictures. Each time there is a strong noticeable fade.

I went to Clearwaves and Dr Chavez to see what could be done to revise some scars on my face and head due to an injury. After an initial consultation, Dr Chavez and the Clearwaves team jumped right in and began a Profractional Laser Treatment on the area and the results have exceeded my expectations. I'm delighted with the results. In my case, there was little to no pain. Considering the quality of equipment and the specialized level of skill provided the prices charged are extremely reasonable.

I've been going to Clearwaves in Albuquerque N.M. for tattoo removal, and have had a wonderful experience! Dr. Chavez and her staff are very professional and dedicated to the work they perform. From my very first visit I felt welcomed, important, and listened to. Dr. Chavez is very thorough in her work and takes her time to speak with me and make sure I understand the treatments and the process. Dr. Chavez and her staff are always very caring and personable which has been truly refreshing!

I have been seeing Dr. Chavez and her staff for years. She has succesfully helped me so much with sun damaged skin and now red spider veins showing up on my face. I would highly recommend her and how professional and caring her and her staff are.
