About Us

Who Are We?

Medical Tattoo Centers of America was started by Layla Salim. Born and raised in Minnesota, Salim graduated from Mayo Clinic’s School of Health Sciences Surgical First program. After graduation, she worked at a cosmetic surgery center and later a dermatology center, where the need for a medical tattoo artist dedicated to hair loss and scars was evident.

Why Choose Us?

Medical Tattoo Centers of America is the first center of its kind in the state of Minnesota. We specialize in female and male hair loss solutions and provide several traditional services that help clients look and feel their best. For maximum comfort and privacy, only one patient is scheduled at a time. Your care and privacy are our number one priority.

Will It Work for Me?

Because every patient is different, treatment varies greatly from patient to patient depending on several factors. This includes, but is not limited to, the location of treatment, size of the area, desired outcome, current density, and skin pigmentation. This is why all of our services require a consultation to determine eligibility and cost of treatment. All consultations are free and may be done in person or via email. All services also include a free touchup within the first six months after initial treatment.

Our Safety Procedures

At our clinic, we provide the utmost safety and sterility for you and for us. For any procedure we do, we will go through a surgical scrub to ensure our hands are sterile. From there, we will don a mask and gloves to add an extra layer of safety for you and us. Between each appointment, we thoroughly clean the clinic with sanitizers and cleaners that are typically found in hospitals. Additionally, we ask that if you need to bring someone with you for your appointment, you limit it to just one person. To learn more about the safety procedures we adhere to, contact us today.

Do You Qualify for Treatment?

While we need to do an in-depth analysis of your health during your free consultation, you need to meet a few basic criteria before we can hold this consultation. We cannot meet with:

  • Anyone under 18
  • Pregnant women
  • New moms
  • Breastfeeding mothers
  • People with communicable blood diseases
  • Patients who currently have cancer or have been in remission for fewer than six months Contact us if you have a note from your oncologist, and we will make new arrangements.

Payment Options

The work we do requires a great deal of time and significant skill, which means our services require an upfront investment. During our initial consultation, we’ll get to know you and discover what you have gone through and why you’re interested in our services. With this information, we’ll offer you a competitive quote based on what you’re asking us to do, the time it will take, and the resources and supplies we’ll need.

Once you have accepted our quote, you must pay 25% upfront to confirm an appointment. Before your appointment takes place, you will need to pay for the procedure in full. Once these preliminary steps are taken, we will do the procedure and help you feel and look the way you want.

If something comes up and you need to cancel or postpone your appointment, you must give us a 48-hour notice, or you will lose your deposit. Additionally, you must pay for your procedure in full before your appointment, or it will be canceled. We accept cash and major credit cards for your procedure. We do not accept personal checks, money orders, or CareCredit. Sorry, we do not offer financing plans. To learn more about our policies and accepted forms of payment, please contact us via phone or email.
