Tattoo troubles

21st July 2012  : 

You thought it was a good idea at the time. You couldn't imagine ever disliking that cheeky design, or the name of your true love visible for all to see. Until that important interview came up, or that true love turned out to be not so lasting after all. But the tattoo, on the other hand, is oh so lasting.

Many people want to remove tattoos from their bodies, but the problem arises when it's not as simple as signing up for treatment and waving goodbye to those tired tattoos. In some cases, the medication a person is taking can affect whether or not they want to go ahead with the procedure, or what treatment is best for them. If you are on blood-thinning or steroid treatments, you will need to talk to your skin care specialist. When tattoos are removed by laser treatments, these medications can interfere with the healing process. As aspirin also thins the blood, it is equally a risk, and alternative painkillers are usually recommended to relieve any discomfort experienced after the procedure.

Other methods for tattoo Removal

All is not lost, though. There are tattoo-removal creams out there, some of which seem to do the trick, according to customer reviews. But do your research; there are lots to choose from, and it can be a pricey mistake if you get it wrong. Another increasingly popular way of getting rid of an unwanted tattoo is to cover it up with a new one. Many tattoo artists are becoming highly skilled at this, though again, be sure you pick one with a good track record.

For the rest of us, laser tattoo removal is by far the easiest and most efficient way of ridding ourselves of not only tattoos, but a whole host of skin conditions, such as acne, unwanted hair, birth marks and moles. So, get zapping!
