A Clean Slate: New Advancements in Tattoo Removal
Written by Corina Paris   

An effective, inexpensive alternative for removing that inky blight

We’ve all done things we regret in life, and more often than not, we learn to live with them. But what about those regrets that seem a little more... permanent? For example, suppose you thought it would be wildly romantic to tattoo the name “Mark” over your left buttock in your twenties. Suppose you and Mark broke up. Suppose your next boyfriend didn’t believe you at all when you said that “mark” was just a cute little pun on tattooing. And it’s realistic to expect that, by now, that tattoo is not only regrettable in name, but is no longer looking as cute as you once thought it did, either.

Tattoos tend to fade over time. Colours lose their intensity and blacks fade to blues and greys. As our skin stretches and sags, so too does the tattoo. For women who have had pregnancies, tattoos on the lower back, hips and especially the abdomen can be badly affected. Any substantial weight gain or loss or change in skin texture (i.e., aging) can have a dramatic affect on the appearance of your tattoo.

Until recently, the only effective methods of tattoo removal involved plastic surgery or multiple laser treatments, which were extremely painful and expensive and often left substantial scarring in place of the tattoo. Thankfully, a new methodology has become available that eliminates tattoos in a couple of treatments for all but the most stubborn cases. The treatment is called EliminInk, and it’s a revolutionary method of ink extraction developed to remove tattoos easily, effectively and permanently.

There are many benefits to using EliminInk over other methods of tattoo removal. The EliminInk tattoo removal treatment is painless and fast. In most cases, only two or three treatments of EliminInk are required to completely remove the unwanted tattoo, meaning fewer sessions to obtain satisfactory results. Aftercare is simple and requires only that the patients follow a short set of instructions. Choose your technician carefully by considering his or her training, experience, and examples of previous work. Check for licensing, certifications and liability insurance, and ask for references from previous patients.

This summer, reveal your arms, ankles and belly with confidence. Walk into that boardroom without wearing your youthful regrets on your shoulder. Go dancing with your husband without another man’s name on your hip. You can have a clean slate!
