Tattoo removal alternatives!

I have heard of so many different ways to get tattoos removed. I have heard of laser removal, creams that help remove tattoos, and others. I always wondered if some of these tattoo removal methods were safe since you either shoot yourself with a laser or apply some magical cream that happens to take off the tattoo. Lasers just seem dangerous in general, but what about creams? I always wondered if it was some sort of acid or something. Well, I don't know exactly how they work, but it appears the FDA is banning tattoo removal creams, so I guess I was right. They must be dangerous.

I ran across a great press release helping to warn people about the dangers of some methods of tattoo removal, and it is important that everyone knows that there are safer methods out there! Take a look at this press release for some very valuable information! Press Release

Headline: FDA bans Tattoo Removal Creams?

San Diego - With the launch of it’s new website, warns the public about possible health risks associated with using tattoo removal creams purchased on the Internet. The new site states “many” tattoo removal creams sold online contain Hydroquinone, which is usually the active ingredient in skin bleaching creams.

In August 2006 the FDA proposed a ban on over the counter skin bleaching creams containing Hydroquinone due to concerns about Cancer and Exogenous Ochronosis. This proposed ban is similar to those already enacted in Japan, France, Great Britain and Australia for the same reasons. CEO Rick Barker notes, “Indirectly—and probably without knowing it—the FDA is saying they think the tattooed public may be at risk if they use tattoo removal creams containing Hydroquinone. This is particularly true when you consider most skin bleaching cream makers––prescription or OTC––never recommend Hydroquinone be used more than 4-6 months for maximum effect. Many tattoo removal cream makers online offer supplies well beyond this recommended period.” sells TCA at its website to help consumers remove tattoos in a natural non-laser fashion. TCA is a popular non-prescription skin-peeling agent commonly used by doctors, health spas and private individuals to remove fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars on the face. TCA has twice been medically tested and proven to fade and/or remove tattoos on the body. TCA looks and feels like water and is applied with a q-tip. There is no Hydroquinone in TCA.
