Norah Clair Gourlay, RN, MSN
Aesthetic Nurse Specialist
Whether you are looking to remove a part of an existing tattoo, such as a name or color, or you want to erase an entire piece, the National Center for Tattoo Removal can help. As one of the only tattoo removal practices in the Washington, DC area to offer PicoSure Technology—the most advanced tattoo removal laser available—we have removed hundreds of tattoos, and we have the experience and expertise to solve even the most complex tattoo removal challenge, large or small.
In the past, remnants of ink were often still visible on the skin after laser tattoo removal, and it was difficult to pinpoint small areas, but not anymore. PicoSure uses PressureWave Technology, a precise, targeted method that breaks ink up into small particles that the body then naturally eliminates. This means everything from the smallest edit to the largest removal is now possible—safely and effectively.
To ensure you get the very best outcome, our tattoo removal practice is guided by aesthetic nurse Norah Clair Gourlay—one of DC’s only PicoSure practitioners. Armed with a clinical understanding of the skin, Norah Clair brings her extensive experience in skin rejuvenation procedures such as Botox, dermal fillers, and laser skin treatments to her tattoo removal approach, ensuring results which are as safe as they are aesthetically pleasing. Plus, Norah is able to offer her patients both topical and injectable skin numbing options to increase comfort during treatment. When you are ready to rethink your ink, trust your skin to Norah Clair Gourlay and National Center for Tattoo Removal.
PicoSure® uses advanced picosecond laser technology to remove tattoos better than any other treatment! PressureWave™ technology sends laser pulses lasting less than one-trillionth of a second to safely blast away unwanted tattoos without harming your skin. PicoSure laser treatments can remove some tattoos in as few as three sessions.
PicoSure laser tattoo removal is the fastest and safest way to remove your unwanted tattoo. This advanced technology can even remove stubborn blue and green ink without damaging the surrounding skin, ensuring remarkably precise results. Now, your tattoo no longer has to be permanent!

Dr. Barlow is very warm & caring, in an uncomfortable situation. His staff is very friendly & treats you like a friend, not a patient. I left the consultation with a complete understanding of the procedure, recovery, pricing & payment options. I knew, walking out the door, that I had no need for additional consults with any other practice.
I had initials of an ex tattooed on my ring finger. I made an appointment to get it removed with Norah, that was the best decision I ever made. It was very affordable and the best part was they also use a numbing medication and I didn't feel a thing. I was beyond impressed with her services and results. So happy!
I am HIGHLY Satisfied... I have absolutely no complaints with any aspect of my procedure, from the initial consult to follow up appointments.
Norah is an exceptional nurse-- very professional and extremely knowledgeable of aesthetic services, including but not limited to laser tattoo removal, injectables, and surgical procedures. Highly recommend her for your aesthetic needs. Don't delay-- make an appointment with her ASAP!
