Wrecking Balm tattoo removal cream can be purchased either online or from many high street retailers without the need for a prescription . This removal cream activates the skin’s natural regeneration ability and is reputed to break down the tattoo ink contained inside the skin cells resulting in new, ink-free skin. The upper layers of skin are gently removed during the first step of this process using a handheld device. For the second step a chemical serum is applied which breaks down the tattoo ink pigments inside the skin. The skin cells will start to regenerate over a period of four to six weeks with noticeable results.
Another tattoo removal cream is Profade which can be used over a period of time to fade tattoos, this process can take from 3 to 9 months. Depending on the colours of ink used, the age of the tattoo, type and depth of ink, the speed of process can vary. Do not use this tattoo removal cream though on places such as lips, wounds or eyes. Similar to wrecking balm Profade is designed to work in three stages. Stage one involves applying water to the skin and then applying the first cream and massaging into the desired area. Stage Two is when the base cream is applied which will clean the site of the tattoo. The last stage is applying a thin layer of cream which will eliminate the tattoo.
Unlike Profade, Tattoo-OFF can be used on the face area and can be used to remove permanent tattoos as well as regular tattoos. The specially formulated cream used in Tattoo-OFF is made from natural botanicals, such as calendula flower extract, orange peel, aloe leaf juice and lemon extract it is also hypoallergenic. Tattoo-OFF can be purchased in either multi packs or trial sizes which all include the three required creams.
Various levels of success can be attributed to the different brands of tattoo removal cream. The Food and Drug Administration says the creams offer no proven credible benefit, and adds that many of the ingredients in the creams are listed as “high risk” on cosmetic safety databases. While a dermatologist at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Lawrence E. Gibson, says “At best, tattoo removal cream may fade or lighten a tattoo. The tattoo will remain visible, however, and skin irritation and other reactions are possible. Remember, tattoos are meant to be permanent. Because the ink is placed beneath the top layer of skin, complete removal of a tattoo is difficult.”
