Tattoo Removal Cream and Solutions
Tattoo Removal Cream and Solutions
Also known as the Tattoo Fading or Erase Method of Tattoo Removal
I would like to address the issue of tattoo removal cream and solutions. However, before I even proceed any further, I’d like to dispel the myth that “Tattoo Removal Cream, Tattoo Fading Creams, TattooErase Methods do not work”. Do not believe that. Much of this is said out of ignorance. It is a fallacy. Just like anything else, some will work better than others.
They do not want you to believe that these creams work, simply for ‘economic” reasons. Just think for a moment how many laser specialists, tattoo artists, and others out there make their living. If you were one of them, would “YOU” recommend an easy to do, Do-It-Yourself method for tattoo removal to anyone?
Of course not. This is a myth put out by others who would rather that you believed that tattoo fading doesn’t work.
This simply is not true. By the way, this method of tattoo removal is also known as tattoo erase method and tattoo fade method.
How do I know? Well, I have a “homemade” tattoo that is about 18 years old and I did try one of the tattoo fading methods I listed below, to try to remove an old girlfriend’s name.
Did it remove”MY” tattoo? Nope! But, do you want to know the truth why it didn’t work for me?
Well, to becompletely honest about it, it was due to my own laziness and forgetfulness. That’s right! If you don’t use it,it won’t work! What a revelation, huh?
Just like everything else in our life, we have to follow the directions or it generally will not work.
BUT, I can tell you this———– Although I only used it off and on for about two months, it did actually lighten my tattoo. Not alot, but certainly enough to notice the difference.
I do know that if I had followed the instructions completely, as I should have, my tattoo would have been gone completely or very significantly lightened. I am just that type of person that is always trying to “hurry” things up. Just a bit impatient so it just was not for me.
Just remember that the tattoo removal cream method is just like any other method of tattoo removal in that it is dependent on many different factors such as the size of your tattoo, was it done professionally or not, the depth of the ink, and the colors used in your tattoo that you want toremove.
Your red and black inks are much easier to remove than the greens and blues.
Another positive note about tattoo fading cream removal systems is that they ARE painless and do not leave any scarring. Although it is a fact that the tattoo removal cream method is much slower than having a Laser remove your tattoo, it is also much less expensive. As long as you are willing to follow all the directions to a T and are willing to invest the required time, you should see either a much lighter tattoo or a tattoo that has faded almost completely.
A possible caution that you might want to consider with some of the tattoo removal creams is that some of them may contain an ingredient called Hydroquinone.
Hydroquinoneis a skin bleaching chemical that is suspected by some to be a cause ofcancer and another skin disease called Exogenus Ochronosis. (“suspected not proven”)
Products that contain Hydroquinone are not allowed to be sold in France, Australia, Japan and England.
However, it must also be stated that as of today, there has been no actual proof of Hydroquinone causing either of these conditions.
