The Future of Tattoo Removal
The future of tattoo removal is wide-open as scientists, entrepreneurs and researchers continue to provide consumers with safer, more effective, and ultimately more affordable ways to help erase unwanted tattoos.
One of the more exciting breakthroughs in the future of tattoo removal involves tattoo inks that can easily be diminished when they come into contact with a specific chemical. This would mean that an unwanted tattoo can be erased in a much shorter time frame than what is currently available.
Additionally, the future of topical products such as tattoo removal creams has also progressed over the last few years and will surely continue to do so in the near future. This is due in part to researchers finding more inventive ways to combine ingredients. Through trial and error, these researchers have been able to discover formulas that are not only safe, but that are highly effective as well. The hope is that one day all one will have to do to remove an unwanted tattoo is to apply a layer of a tattoo removal cream or gel and wait for the tattoo ink to draw to the surface and fade away.
While the future of tattoo removal remains bright, there are thankfully a variety of ways to help get rid of a tattoo today.
For example, besides traditional methods like laser tattoo removal and over-the-counter tattoo removal creams, there are also more advanced techniques like skin grafting in which a clean piece of skin is grafted over a piece of skin with a tattoo. Once the graft takes, the tattoo will no longer be visible.
While this is an effective tattoo removal method, it is also extremely expensive as it is not covered by almost all health insurance plans as it is considered an elective surgery. Furthermore, it is also risky in that some skin grafts do not take as well as others.
Due to the health risks as well as the cost, only a very small percentage of consumers rely on skin grafts to replace their unwanted tattoos. Most consumers prefer to use methods like laser treatments and tattoo removal serums.
