Treatment overview

With laser tattoo removal from RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, a permanent decision doesn’t have to be so permanent after all.

What sets our treatment apart is a breakthrough tattoo removal with a technology called PiQo4, one of the safest and most advanced laser treatments available.

Dr. Daniel Ritacca uses PiQo4 and other lasers to target your unwanted ink, successfully removing difficult ink colors (such as blues and greens) and other previously treated tattoos. All this can be accomplished without damaging the surrounding tissue.



Dr. Ritacca and the staff at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa guarantee that we can help remove even the most difficult tattoos within a few sessions.

For an effective treatment plan, we will look into the tattoo location, your skin type, and the amount of ink present in the tattoo.

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including Laser Tattoo Removal. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

Your Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment

As with any procedure at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we will begin your laser tattoo removal treatment by ensuring your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.
      • Each tattoo removal session is relatively quick, lasting only a few minutes each time. After being provided with a pair of protective eye shields, Dr. Ritacca will determine the most effective wavelength or energy level for your treatment. We then use a small device to pass through the top of the skin and remove the tattoo pigments.


The Recovery

After treatment, you may experience some redness at the treatment area.

This will go away after a few hours. Each treatment has the benefit of little downtime, however we recommend that you avoid strenuous activity for 24 to 48 hours after treatment.

Happy patients


Just moved to the area from the city. Great experience and friendly staff.
-Miriam Cardenas
Jacque helped make my skin feel refreshed again even while pregnant, thank youu! <3
-Yoandra Lopez

I have to admit I tend to be skeptical of having treatment to my face however as a former colleague of Jens, I completely entrust her and her expertise with facial procedures and would highly recommend a friend, family member or colleague looking for an esthetician to visit Jen.

Jen is an amazing resource on skincare, products, and knowledgable without pushing product or sales.

I believe she always has my best interest at heart . So much so that I plan an office visit every time I return to Chitown!

Simply put she is amazing and will make you feel the same!
