Is X-Tattoo Removal Right for You?

    Yes! More then likely. Every tattoo is different, removal techniques—including the type of laser used—must be tailored to your particular needs. And some tattoos are especially stubborn. Green, yellow and fluorescent inks are notoriously difficult to remove. Their absorption spectra often fall outside most lasers’ targeted color spectrums. What’s more, tattoo inks sometimes contain chemicals like iron oxide or titanium dioxide, which makes it even more difficult for laser beams to “explode” color pigments.
    You would be a good candidate for tattoo removal (meaning you won’t suffer scarring) if you have medium to fair skin and a tattoo that contains dark (but not dense) ink and a superficial ink depth. Medium or fair-skinned people react well because the laser can selectively target ink. If your tattoo happens to be on your arms, chest, buttocks, or anywhere else with good circulation, even better. Areas with poor circulation are more work to treat.
    If you have darker skin, don’t worry.Tattoo removal is still possible on people with darker skin tones, but your physician must use lasers with specific wavelengths to minimize potential problems.

      Why would I want to remove my tattoo?

        It’s estimated that more than 50% of individuals who have a tattoo want it removed. Skin’s elasticity and moisture decreases over time so today’s tattoo may not look the same after six or more years. Sun exposure will distort the colors, and tattoos often stretch or sag depending on where they are located on the body. As your weight tends to fluctuate so will your tattoo, and the Tattoo image will distort as time pasases. Tattoos change over time it’s to be expected

        When considering tattoo removal, accurate information about treatment options and realistic expectations are important to achieve a successful outcome. X tattoo removal is a simple solution for those who decide to Delete faded, stretched, or distorted tattoos.

        The choice to get a tattoo that is later regretted is related to the end-of-history illusion, in which teenagers and adults of all ages know that their tastes have changed regularly over the years before the current moment, but believe that their style will somehow not continue to grow and mature in the future. As a result, they wrongly believe that any tattoo that appeals to them today may always appeal to them in the future.

        Scottish Skin care Firm Rapped over False Tattoo Removal Claim

          We are glad to see that the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) have gotten tough with a Scottish skincare firm that was claiming to have  lotion that makes tattoos disappear in as little as twelve months. According to the Daily Record, the firm was making false claims that they had tested the product in two studies when in fact, they had not. False advertising aside, most tattoo removal creams are ineffective and in a few cases dangerous – the ones that use the same sort of acid that topical wart removers do can cause permanent scarring as they  work by taking the ink out while taking off thick layers of skin along with it.
