Today, getting an ink on the body is becoming a trend but along with this, there are a bunch of people who regret getting the ink. New procedures now exist for removing unwanted tattoos, many of them remarkably successful. And many DIY home remedies are on a rise. Here are some quick home remedies that will help you remove tattoo.
For starters, be very careful about rubbing salt into your tattoo. If you have got a tattoo that you are not much happy with or you are bored with it, here is what you can do to remove tattoo. Your skin has effectively two layers, the dermis, or inner part of the skin, and the epidermis, or outer layer of your skin. When you get a tattoo, the ink travels past the epidermis, or superficial layer of skin, and into the dermis. Rubbing salt onto the epidermis is easy but useless. You need to get the salt into the dermis; even if you did manage to rub away the top layer of your skin to get at the ink, it’s probably not going to end well. Mere rubbing some salt on your tattoo will only end up giving you a rash. It may also cause pigmentation of the skin, wrinkling, and possibly scarring. Know that doing this procedure at home can have significant adverse consequences, and may make your tattoo look even worse.
The concept of using salt to remove tattoo is more like a myth. Although there is a dermatological procedure that uses salt as a slight abrasive, there is probably one glaring reason why salt is thought to be a good tattoo eraser. When you get a tattoo, you are told not to submerge the tattoo in water, especially salt water. Soaking your tattoo in salt water, in fact, will only cause the ink to disperse, run, or possibly fade. It won’t cause your tattoo to magically vanish. It’s likely your tattoo will look worse after you soak it in salt water if your tattoo is newly inked. And here is the truth, if you have had your tattoo for several weeks or longer, it’s likely that submerging your tattoo in salt water will have no effect.
The laser tattoo removal is the safest method. Also it is the most effective one. Doctors of aestheticians shoot highly-concentrated pulses of light at the ink, which can help shatter the ink and lead to a remarkable reduction in visible ink. Doing a laser tattoo removal, will be a cost effective procedure. Depending on the size of the tattoo, laser surgery will set you back anywhere from $100 to $1,000.
With cryosurgery, the skin is frozen and the ink burned off with liquid nitrogen. Chemical peels cause the skin to blister and slough off, removing some of the tattoo ink. Neither is a horribly popular option, as they are both expensive and painful. If you are desperate however, they may be worth considering.
