All Natural Tattoo Removal
The art of tattooing has been performed since ancient times
and will continue to be performed for years to come all over the world. People
get tattoos for a variety of reasons. Tattoos may be a loved-one's name,
identify an individual belonging to a group, a symbol of a significant event in
someone's life or something that seemed like a good idea during a rebellious
time in someone's life.
Laser technology for tattoo removal has advanced over the
last decade, however many of the latest lasers continue to have a challenge
with removing certain colors like aqua green or blue. Some tattoos can be
significantly reduced in one to three treatments. However, multiple treatments
are usually required.
Toxic acids have been used as an alternative to lasers for
removing tattoos, and unfortunately tattoos had been replaced with scars. Some
permanent makeup artists have been successful with removal of unwanted cosmetic
tattooing with some acid solutions without scarring, however this is dangerous

A safe all-natural non-acid saline solution can now be used
as an alternative to laser tattoo removal. After a specific technique is used,
using a tattoo machine with a specific needle configuration, the solution is applied
directly over the area. Over time a scab forms.
Patients have to take extreme care during the healing
process. The longer the scab stays on, the better the results. Once the scab
falls off the process is interrupted. The scab must be kept dry. Patients experience
more pain at the site of tattoo removal after 4-5 days. An average of 3-5
treatments are required, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. The biggest advantage to this
procedure is that all tattoo colors can be removed.
Non-laser, all natural solution tattoo removal has risks
just like laser tattoo removal. Pain,
swelling, infection, scarring and skin discoloration can occur. There is a
higher risk of hypo and hyperpigmentation with darker skin types.
A technician performing non-laser, all natural solution
tattoo removal must not only be trained in proper techniques of performing the
procedure, but must know how to minimize risk of complications as well as know
how to treat complications from the procedure.
