How to remove a tattoo – the facts

The reasons why a person decides to reduce tattoos can be very diverse. For example, the tattoo has ceased to be liked, has ceased to be relevant, or when the tattoo was applied thoughtlessly. There are cases when it becomes difficult to get a job because of drawings on visible parts of the body, after which a person will be forced to think about either changing jobs, or mixing the tattoo forever.

There are also situations when tattoos were performed poorly or by an inept master and over time they begin to deform on the skin or “float”.

Very often, tattoos with the names of former lovers are reduced, when the tattoo was applied in a fit of love and exalted feelings, but over time, love did not meet all expectations, but the name on the skin always reminds of that period of life.

Methods of mixing tattoos

Let’s analyze the most popular methods of tattooing:

  • Surgical scalpel. This option is only suitable for people who are not afraid of pain and the sight of blood, because the method is truly not humane, and it is impossible to call it simple and safe. The drawing on the body is removed with a scalpel, cutting off the area of ​​the skin on which the tattoo is applied with a sharp point. In the case when the drawing is large, several procedures may be required. Painful sensations, the type of blood and the likelihood of infection can be associated with this procedure. Scars are another unpleasant bonus that is a companion for surgical removal of a tattoo..

  • Microdermabrasion method. Another way to replace a pattern with a scar or scar. This procedure is carried out using a special grinding machine, which removes the top layer of the pigment of the pattern. In addition to the fact that such a method is rather painful, in the future, the operated skin area will require careful care: constant and correct skin treatment, a bandage.
  • Cryodestruction. This type of procedure is performed by removing pigment using substances of low temperatures (liquid nitrogen). The essence of the method is that the pattern on the body is covered with a layer of liquid nitrogen, after which the process of tissue dying off begins. Healing also cannot be called quick and painless. A huge drawback of tattoo removal with liquid nitrogen is the inability to control the depth of the freezing liquid injection, as a result of which “clean” skin areas may suffer..
  • Camouflage method. Camouflage refers to the way a tattoo is covered with flesh-colored paint. That is, one tattoo on top of another. This method is not painless, but unlike the three previously listed, it excludes the appearance of scars and scars..

  • Laser removal – Currently the most effective, less painful and effective way to deal with unwanted tattoos. Before the procedure, the doctor determines the density of the pattern, the color saturation, and the depth of the pigment. With the help of laser beams, the pigment is heated, due to which it gradually loses its color. Thus, the coloring matter under the epidermis is destroyed naturally, without pain or scars. Another advantage of laser removal is that there is no need for a recovery period, because the laser acts only on the pigment and does not harm the skin in any way.
