If you ever regret getting a tattoo there are effective methods of removing it. One such method is the TCA tattoo removal. TCA, which is a chemical peeling agent, stands for trichloroacetic acid. While laser treatment is the one of the most popular methods today, it is rather costly. It would be a good idea to look into other tattoo removal options before resorting to laser treatments.
Actually, even before the medical community had introduced laser tattoo removal method, specialists are using chemical peels like TCA. Today, TCA can be successfully implemented at home using TCA chemical peels available at some stores and online. For these people, TCA tattoo removal method is the more sensible alternative to laser treatments that are rather time-consuming in addition to being expensive.
TCA works by forcing exfoliation which can cause the upper skin layers to peel off. Depending on your skin type, your skin may react immediately, experiencing the peeling effect after just two days of application. However, peeling may be experienced for two to three weeks. After the peeling wears off, you may apply the solution again. There will be some slight side effects but this should be tolerable and would go away after a few days. Pain, for instance, will not be as bad as compared to laser tattoo removal method.
What is good about TCA is that there is no need to neutralize it. TCA, unlike fruit acids, neutralizes itself 20 minutes after you applied it. However, TCA can’t be washed off, sinking deep into your skin to start the exfoliation process. To minimize the toxicity levels in the area, you have to apply TCA just once. Applying and reapplying TCA would not do any good as the body limits its TCA absorption. You also can’t hasten the process even if you apply TCA consistently; it can only exacerbate the condition of your skin.
Remember that you may burn your skin if you apply 100% TCA as well. With 100% TCA just one minute of application may be enough. A good way to tell is when you get a white frosting on the skin and a burning sensation which is indication of good penetration. Then immediately rinse well with cold water.
You may dilute TCA with water and use lighter solutions but lighter TCA solutions require longer treatment time. Most TCA tattoo removal products available are very diluted but our 100% TCA Removal is very effective. We recommend using our unscented Tattoo and TCA Peel pre-treatment for a week beforehand to unclog your pores and cleanse your skin. With proper pretreatment you can dilute the TCA to 50% and achieve effective results . You need to do this until the burning effect subsides.
After using TCA Tattoo Removal you must let you skin heal from the chemical peel before using again. Temporary loss of pigmentation in the area can occur and you should keep the area out of sunlight and use a sunscreen if exposed.
