I wanted to write today about tattoo removal creams, our Technican gets asked quite often if they work, are they safe etc. In the past year I have seen the results of quite a few people who have been treated with creams and needles and their results were “Shocking”. If we could remove tattoos, which are meant to be permanent, with cream, you will most likely end up scarred. I have also seen photos of clients who have had this treatment done previous to Laser Tattoo Removal with nasty looking results.
A tattoo is a permanent mark made on the body when pigment is deposited into the dermal layer of the skin through ruptures in the skin’s top layer, the epidermal layer. Modern-day tattoos are applied by using an electric tattoo machine with needles that rapidly puncture the skin with an up and down motion not unlike that of a sewing machine. Depositing the ink in the dermal layer will ensure that it will not move out of the skins surface.
The ink deposited into the dermal layer of the skin is way beyond the reach of any creams. The only ingredients that could do this would be acidic/caustic. We all know that acid can cause severe burns and horrific scars.
Lasers are used to destroy the pigments in the tattoo. Tattoo ink is a colored liquid and when the laser attracts to the color it crystallises the ink…making it a hard substance. The body recognises this crystal as a foreign object and either digests (metabolises) it or pushes it out through the skins surface, much like a splinter. For this reason I say it's a "No Brainer" to choose Laser Tattoo Removal
