Tattoo Removal Creme

Are you thinking about getting a tattoo removal creme and wondering if it will work? You’re not alone.

Because tattoo removal with a laser is expensive and painful, you can see why just applying a topical ointment has its appeal. Plus tattoo removal cremes are popping up everywhere. It has to work, right?

Not necessarily. According to the mayo clinic, a reputed medical hospital, there is no evidence that they work. Dr. Lawrence E. Gibson, M.D., writes

“At best, tattoo removal cream might fade or lighten a tattoo. The tattoo will remain visible, however, and skin irritation and other reactions are possible. Remember, tattoos are meant to be permanent. Because the ink is placed beneath the top layer of skin, complete removal of a tattoo is difficult.”

Dr. Gibson advises that people should consult a qualified dermatologist for safe and effective ways to remove tattoos.

So, here are some things to do before plunking your money down on expensive tattoo removal cremes:

  • Do your research. Check to make sure the information you are reading is on a reputable sites. This is important. Make sure the site is not just a site that’s trying to make money by selling the cream.
  • Check the evidence. Are the clains supported by evidence-based science? Who conducted the studies? Have they been published?
  • Don’t be fooled by photos. The before and after  pictures you see can be faked with Photoshop.
  • Talk to a reputable dermatologist about what works and what doesn’t, and see if the ingredients are harmful.
  • Get real testimonials from real clients. Ask to speak to them personally.

Good luck getting your tattoo removed. Remember, take your time getting your tattoo – tattoos are for life.

 

New Removable Ink Takes The Scare Out Of Getting A New Tattoo

Always wanted a tattoo but are afraid that you may regret it? Hey – don’t fret it. It’s a real worry.

Body art is a $1.5-billion a year industry, with one in four adults age 18 to 50 sporting one or more tattoos. About 17 percent of them would like to remove a tattoo, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Now the good news – Freedom2ink has developed a biodegradeable tattoo ink that is easier to remove than traditional inks of the past.

Freedom-2™ has been especially developed for less painful, lower cost tattoo removal. Traditionally, the removal of tattoos was a painful, slow expensive process, that, unfortunately left a pretty ugly scar. With the American company’s new ink, it takes just one laser treatment, instead of the traditional 12 sessions that most tattoos require, to remove a tattoo.

How tattoo removal with Freedom 2 works

Freedom-2 ink is made of biodegradable safe dyes that can be easily absorbed by the body. This would normally be a bad thing for a tattoo, but what the engineers at Freedom 2 did were is coat each bead of dye in plastic. The plastic keeps the dye from being absorbed by the body. If you ever want the tattoo removed, laser treatment will break open the plastic capsules, and your body will reabsorb the non-toxic dye.

The erasable inks may even hold up better over time than the old permanent inks, as they also standardized the diameter of the plastic beads, which creates a more stable image that won’t blur over the years.

This is great news, as the rise of popularity in tattoo art in the US shows no signs of slowing down.
