The Astanza Before and After Photo Contest rewards Astanza clients for the best before and after pictures for aesthetic treatments obtained in their individual aesthetic, medical spa, physician, tattoo shop, or laser tattoo removal practice. These pictures are judged in terms of the overall removal results.
The contest is held annually from January 1st to December 31st, organized into three categories, and judged by Astanza Laser’s team of experts.
Up to three winners will be awarded every year for the following categories:
- Best completed tattoo removal before & after photo: Complete tattoo removal photo entries must show a comparison of a tattoo prior to treatment and complete removal of the tattoo after treatment. Entries with faded tattoos only will not be entered into the contest – tattoos must be completely removed in order to qualify.
- Best lightening AND cover-up before & after photo: Lightening/Cover-up tattoo removal photo entries must showcase the lightening process (a tattoo prior to treatment vs. the tattoo lightened after a few sessions) AND the new cover-up tattoo after sufficient lightening. Entries with faded tattoos only will not qualify to win – they must have an accompanying cover-up photo.
- Best aesthetic treatment before & after photo: Aesthetic before & after photo entries include results for pigmented lesion removal, vascular lesion removal, skin resurfacing, photofacials, and acne reduction. Photo entries for this category must show a comparison of the skin prior to treatment and complete removal or significant improvement after treatment.
