How Celebrating National Tattoo Removal Day Can Increase Profits

National Tattoo Removal Day is just 46 days away! Each year on August 14, thousands of individuals and businesses celebrate the innovative procedure of laser tattoo removal. Astanza, the leader in tattoo removal laser technology, founded this nationally celebrated day to highlight the laser tattoo removal industry, support patients who removed a tattoo, encourage those interested in laser tattoo removal, and recognize the numerous practitioners and laser tattoo removal businesses that perform this high-demand procedure.

Spectrum Laser Aesthetics, a leading aesthetic practice in Tyler, Texas, has participated in National Tattoo Removal Day the last two years. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, they experienced their highest laser tattoo removal sales thanks to National Tattoo Removal Day promotions and successful marketing efforts. We recently interviewed Jarod Stevens, co-owner of Spectrum Laser Aesthetics, to learn more about how they profited from celebrating National Tattoo Removal Day.

Unless you have clients that have already taken advantage of your services or have a business card with your website address, they might never discover all your services.
