Tattoo and Body Piercings Scars
Tattoos and body piercings are more common than ever. Where the public perception and acceptance of tattoos and piercings was once very narrow, these elective body modification procedures are now mainstream with millions of people being tattooed and pierced everyday. Further proof of a mainstream acceptance of body modification is evident by a variety of television shows that focus on tattoos and piercings. Tattoos are no longer just for soldiers and bikers and piercings are no longer reserved for the ear lobes of little girls and women, body modification is now common amongst both the young and old, rich and poor.
However, just as the popularity of body modification has exploded so too has the tattoo removal industry. The fact is that many people either regret their choice of body modification and or are employed at a company that does not allow visible tattoos or piercings. While it is much easier to remove a piercing than a tattoo, there will still be visible evidence of both. When you remove a piercing, the puncture wound will still remain. When you remove a tattoo, there is often the formation of scars due to the fact that the most effective way to remove a tattoo is to essentially burn it off by periodically burning off the top layers of the skin until the tattoo diminishes.
Those that were tattooed and pierced and have since decided to reverse their body modification procedures are left with unsightly scars and puncture wounds. Thankfully, there is a variety of scar removal creams, gels, and pads to choose from which will help diminish the appearance of these scars. While there are many products to choose from, the best products are generally silicone based scar treatments. This is because recent studies have shown that silicone is a highly effective way to reduce the appearance of scars. Silicone based scar removal treatments essential form a barrier over the scar which allows it to retain moisture. Essentially the silicone barrier speeds up the healing process by reducing the scar's exposure to natural elements. Those that use a silicone based scar treatment to diminish their tattoo and body piercing scars typically report noticing positive results in as little as two weeks. Other options to help remove tattoo and piercing scars include plastic surgery which may result in surgery scars.
