Out of sheer curiosity, I’m hearing a lot about tattoo removal cremes that, over the course of 6 months to a year, fade your tattoo until it’s gone. I know that it actually disappearing is not the usual result, but I have heard that in most cases, it fades considerably. I also know that the alternative is a painful and expensive laser treatment, which takes several procedures to succesfully remove the tat. But this brings me to ask, why wouldn’t you use the fading system until it stopped working, thereby reducing the amount of laser treatments (and therefore, pain and cost) you’d need to remove the tattoo? Any ideas? And by the way, I’m talking about traditional tattoos, not that new ink that breaks down with one laser treatment. Thanks.
