Methods of Tattoo Removal-Tattoo removal Creams

There are many methods of tattoo removal and we will explore the different options today. Not all methods are right for everyone, it is best to do your own research and decide.

Over the counter Tattoo Removal Creams

This is the cheapest option that can be used at home. These tattoo removal creams will lighten your tattoo by peeling away the top layer of skin and exposing your dermis layer. Once this layer is exposed, the cream starts breaking up the ink particles from the tattoo. As the ink particles are broken up, the skin scabs over, and when the scab falls away, it takes some of the ink with it. This is a simple explanation of how tattoo removal creams work.

How quickly do Tattoo Removal Creams Work?

The process of using tattoo removal cream is never a fast one. Tattoo removal Creams work by breaking down the skin layers and scabbing over. This takes time. Depending on many factors, expect weeks, or even months to really fade it.

Tattoo Removal-New Tattoo

So you had a great weekend, but ended up with a tattoo you may not even remember getting. OK, so maybe that's not exactly what happened, but just how long do you need to wait to perform tattoo removal on a new tattoo?

Well, it is not a good idea to attempt immediate tattoo removal on a new tattoo. On average, it is recommended that you wait about six weeks before attempting any form of removal . Your skin will need time to heal first, then you can consider treatment. If you wish to visit a physician for laser removal, it is best to notify them regarding the age of your tattoo, as they may delay your visit until they can treat your healed skin. Besides, why take risks and chance skin infections when the tattoo removal process is fairly slow anyways.

Tattoo Removal Results

What tattoo removal results can you expect? Depending on which method you choose to use, your results will vary. Some scarring and/or color variations are likely to remain on the skin. The healing time does vary depending upon the procedure that you chose to use and how much had to be done. Using a physician will provide much better tattoo removal results, but this option is not available to everyone. Most insurance companies will consider this an elective procedure, so you will be on your own and paying for it.

If you used a non-surgical procedure at home, the results may be more of a fading than a complete tattoo removal. In many cases, this result can be just what is needed, and the price is much more reasonable.

Tattoo Removal-Does it work?

Do you have a tattoo that no longer fits your life and you'd like to do away with it! Well, tattoo removal is nothing new, but the methods and options available today have greatly advanced. As long as you have the motivation to do it, tattoo removal or fading is very possible today.

How successful will you be in removing that unwanted tattoo completely, well it depends. The factors that determine if you will be left with scarring or color remaining in the skin include how experienced the tattoo artist was, and how evenly the color was applied within one layer of skin. Another important consideration is the length of time you've had the tattoo, as the longer its on the skin, the more difficult tattoo removal becomes. Also, the location of the tattoo as well as the overall size are factors as well.
