American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery – New Beginnings: Branding Tattoo Removal Program

Board-certified ASLMS member physicians across the country have volunteered to remove branding tattoos absolutely free of charge for survivors so that they can have the new beginning they deserve!

This pro-bono service is open to all survivors of sex trafficking with branding tattoos. Patients must have completed or be actively participating in a residential program or recovery support group affiliated with NTSA. Patients are required to provide documentation from their case manager stating they are a sex trafficking survivor at a safe and appropriate stage of recovery to undergo tattoo removal. This program is offered year-round. To learn more, check out our webinar below!
