Being a consumer can sometimes seem overwhelming. When researching a product or service, it can be challenging to decide how to get the best value for your money. There are some great resources out there that offer assistance in this area. One of which is Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports is an independent, nonprofit organization that tries to help consumers stay informed for a safe and healthier world. Consumer Reports recently issued guidelines for safe tattoo removal. We were eager to see how Milwaukee Remove A Tattoo measured up.
See a Doctor for Tattoo Removal
The first recommendation was regarding who is performing the laser tattoo removal. According to Consumer Reports, the “best bet is outpatient laser tattoo removal, performed by a physician who specializes in laser surgery to eliminate the body ink.” At Remove A Tattoo a physician, who has been specially trained in laser tattoo removal, performs all laser treatments. Find out more about Dr. Brotzman.
Skip the home treatments
Another recommendation by the article was to avoid home treatments or tattoo shops that offer laser tattoo removal. We tend to agree. Tattoo removal creams don’t work and may have harmful ingredients that damage the skin. Laser tattoo removal, on the other hand, does work.
Finally, the article noted that laser tattoo removal does not work as well on people who smoke. As we have discussed before, there are many things that you can do to help your body clear the ink faster. Smoking is not one of them.
The rest of the article talked about lasers and what to expect with treatments. We were pleased to see that Remove A Tattoo is offering laser tattoo removal treatment in line with the recommendations from Consumer Reports.
