The Youth Removal Project is a community outreach program to help young people remove visible gang tattoos.
The YRP (Youth Removal Project) was established as community outreach to help young people remove gang tattoos.
Since its inception the program has been steadily evolving. We now offer free removal of any gang tattoo from the hands, neck and face of those individuals under the age of 18 that qualify for the program.
The program is offered free of charge to anyone under the age of 18 that has a gang related tattoo on their hands neck or face. (A parent or legal guardian must be present during the procedure)
Because laser tattoo removal often requires multiple treatments, all subsequent laser sessions are offered free of charge even if the minor turns 18 before the tattoo is completely removed.
Fade Fast was founded on the the idea that tattooing can be a positive adornment to the human body.
However, visible gang tattoos can often limit job prospects and carry social stigmas that might hold our children back from succeeding.
The Art / The Science / The Process
The science of laser tattoo removal is actually fairly straightforward. A beam of collimated light delivers energy into the skin, which is absorbed by the ink, causing it to fracture into smaller particles that are then carried off by the your body's lymphatic system.
The art behind the process is a bit more complex. There are numerous factors to take into account including an understanding of tattoos, skin types, healing and of course the different types of lasers and pain management techniques.
The process takes several treatments spaced six to eight weeks for best results. Yes, removal is a serious commitment, but the procedure is actually quite fast, with most treatments lasting less than ten minutes.
Patience - We all want instant results but laser removal takes time and patience. Treatments are normally spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. However, the longer you wait the better the results.
