How to Fade Tattoos
There are assorted reasons for people wanting to fade their tattoos. The two most popular reasons are – you are fading a tattoo to enable a tattoo artist to put a cover-up over the bad ink and the other reason – is the goal to fade a tattoo previous to receiving laser tattoo removal.
Fading a Tattoo for a Cover-Up
Typical for the first scenario is the wish to cover up a badly done piece of art, or you’ve had a change in taste, or you made the huge mistake of getting a lover’s name inked permanently on your person. As long as you still like tattoos in general and there is no problem with having body art in that specific area of your body, then a cover up can be the answer for you.
As you may already know, your options for cover ups are restricted by the color and size of the underlying tattoo. The new tattoo work has to be able to cover the old work in color and size. If you have the patience to fade your tattoo prior to the cover up you may broaden the artistic options you will have to choose from. This way you won’t be as limited in your options.
Fading a Tattoo for Laser Regimen
Folks are finding that combining the application of tattoo removal creams or using Rejuvi with laser helps to lessen the number of laser removal applications necessary, which results in saving them money. The price of Rejuvi and tattoo removal creams is much less than laser. These products can fade the tattoo before you even kick off the laser appointments.
Laser removal is still the champion at completely removing tattoos but it is by far the most expensive. Some medical institutions now present reasonable interest rates for patient financing for optional procedures such as laser removal. I would advise you fade your tattoo as much as possible prior to making your appointment for your free evaluation. That way the cosmetic office will be able to better calculate the amount of laser treatments you’ll need.
