Since the 90s, laser tattoo pop over to this site removal procedures have significantly increased in popularity. The rise of laser tattoo removal specialty clinics attests to the appeal of this process. Nevertheless, myths about tattoo removal still abound. This article will attempt to debunk or verify some of these myths.

Myth #1: Fading creams work better than laser: Tattoo removal fading creams are plentiful on the net. This writer has attempted one of these creams personally and found no effect on his own tattoo. Unless a harsh acid is present in a fading cream, such as glycolic acid, that burns off your skin and makes a scar, there is no possible "fading cream" that would remove tattoos. Tattoos are created from a multitude of inks with distinct chemical compositions. It isn't clear what substance in a cream would make these compounds "dissolve" when applied over the skin.

Newer Q - switched lasers, like the ruby and YAG, work otherwise. They photothermically fracture the tattoo pigments and rely on the body's immune system to clear them from the tattoo. It's not required or common, if too much energy is employed by means of a Q - switched laser although scarring is possible.

Myth #3: Multicolor tattoos can't be removed: It's famous that black tattoos tend to react better to laser removal than some other colours.

Myth #4: Cosmetic tattoos can't be removed: This is sometimes true. Some flesh-colored decorative tattoos contain iron pigments. When these are treated with laser, they may convert to a distinct chemical form that becomes black. These iron-containing inks are also very difficult, if not impossible to remove. On the other hand, if they feature pigments that are nonmetallic, they are as readily removed as other tattoos. Eye liner tattoos pose a special challenge due to the proximity to the eye and require special laser eye shields to avoid harm to the world. Additionally, there is the threat of losing eyelashes, though usually not forever, from the laser treatment. Tattoos on lips can be treated but the teeth have to be protected.
