Are you the handyman type? Are you the type of person that is always breaking out your tools and tackling do it yourself projects around the home? If you are, you might be interested in learning about do it yourself tattoo removal. I’m not suggesting that you break out your electric sander and go to town on your tattoo. What I’m referring to is using some DIY tattoo removal products like tattoo removal cream or TCA tattoo removal liquid. These products are quite appealing to people who have learned the cost of laser tattoo removal.
Here’s the lowdown on these do it yourself tattoo removal products. If you’re the type of person who can’t stand waiting for the first coat of paint to dry so you can put the second coat on when you are doing home improvement projects, you might find it a little difficult to undergo DIY tattoo removal. Using home tattoo removal products is definitely one of those home improvement projects or should I say personal improvement projects that will require you to be patient.
The reason for this is very simple. These products are designed to slowly fade your tattoo over a period of time. Don’t let this be disappointing to you if you haven’t heard this before. The fact that these DIY tattoo removal products are formulated to work slowly actually works in your favor. If they were formulated in a strong enough form to quickly to remove your tattoos, there is a very high likelihood that they would be uncomfortable to use and you might even develop some lasting side effects from using them.
In order to understand why these do it yourself tattoo removal products work slowly, let’s first take a look at the anatomy of a the tattoo. Your body is covered in skin. That’s no surprise but it might surprise you to know that your body has more than one layer of skin. When a tattoo is applied, the tattoo needle punctures the top layer of skin which is called the epidermis. The tatoo needle then deposits the tattoo ink in the lower layer of skin which is commonly known as the dermis. After you receive a tatoo, you probably remember that you had to wait sometime for your skin to heal from the tattooing process. What was actually happening during this time was that top layer of skin, the epidermis, was regenerating a protective layer of skin over your tattoo. This is the reason that tattoos are permanent and don’t wash off when you swim or bath.
In order for any of these do it yourself tattoo removal products to work, they first need to break through the top layer of skin so that they can begin to act on the skin cells that are holding the tattoo ink. TCA tattoo removal liquid is a chemical that is commonly used for chemical skin peels in beauty salons and health spas. If you use this product for your DIY tattoo removal, the TCA acid will cause your skin to peel and with repeated uses, the tattoo ink will be exposed. Further use of the product at this time, will begin to break down the skin cells that are holding the tattoo ink and this is how acid tattoo removal works to fade your tattoos at home.
Tattoo removal creams work in a similar way. Some tattoo removal creams are nothing more than skin lightning agents and you could use these products till you’re blue in the face and never see your tattoo fade at all. The most popular brand of any of the tattoo removal cream products is called Wrecking Balm. To my knowledge, they are also the only company that makes a tattoo removal cream that offers a money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the results. These other lesser known tattoo removal creams are Dermasal, Tattoo Off, Tat B Gone, and Tat Med. You really have to ask yourself why other companies that make tattoo removal cream aren’t willing to offer you a satisfaction guarantee? Could it be because they don’t work? I’ll leave you to come to your own conclusions.
Wrecking Balm works differently than other tatoo removal products because they have a three step process. The first process utilizes a special dermabrasion tool to gently sand away the top layer of skin and expose the skin cells that are holding the tattoo ink. This isn’t done in one sitting. It is done over a period of many weeks or months. When this dermabrasion tool has successfully unveiled the skin cells that contain the tattoo ink, the Wrecking Balm tattoo removal cream goes to work and begins to break up the cellular matrix of the skin cells which results in fading of the tattoo.
It doesn’t take much effort to apply Wrecking Balm at all. You can do it in about 10 minutes and you apply it three times a week. Talk about an easy do it yourself project. You probably tackle do it yourself products around the house to save money all the time. Why not tackle a do it yourself project on yourself and remove your tattoo with a do it yourself tattoo removal product such as Wrecking Balm in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
