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.
Thank You Thank You Thank You, Daniela!!! :)

Dr. Chavez's office is 3 hours from my home, but her and her staff are so worth my trip! In my professional field, I really started to become very self conscious of my wrist tattoos and wanted them removed. I researched other Dr's in my area, but what kept me coming back to Dr. Chavez's web site, is the fact that she has done so much research over the years to find what laser works with what colors. After 2 treatments I already see a lot of fading! Dr. Chavez & her staff are great!
I just figured out how to respond to reviews, so, I wanted to say THANK YOU! I'm sorry for you long drive, but, I'm so honored that we get to see you!!! :)
