Do You Need a Healing Cream for Tattoo Removal?

tattooOne study suggests that as many as one-third of all people with a tattoo regret their decision in some way – whether it was the design they chose, the location, or the fact that they now have ink permanently marking their body. If you find yourself in the group of those wishing they had avoided that particular trip to the tattoo parlor, you may have considered getting a cover-up tattoo or perhaps removing the tattoo altogether.

andnbsp;

For people wishing to remove all signs of their tattoos entirely, like the Belgian woman who had 56 stars tattooed across her face, there are new technologies now that do a pretty incredible job of removing the ink. But before we get into that, let’s get clear on what a tattoo actually is…

andnbsp;

Getting a tattoo involves having permanent pigment inserted into the dermal layer of the skin through ruptures in the top of the skin’s surface. Modern day tattooing uses an electric tattoo machine with needles that quickly and repeatedly puncture the skin in a similar motion as a sewing machine needle. The process is quite painful, but hopefully leads to a lifelong joy of wearing the art of your choice on your body.

andnbsp;

Should you wish to remove your tattoo, it may not be possible to completely remove all traces of the ink. Most dermatologic surgeons warn that absolute removal is not possible since tattoos were applied to be permanent, and there are more than 100 different tattoo inks today – all with different qualities and longevity. The determining factors in how easy a tattoo is to remove with these new technologies include size, color, location on the body, health of an individual, how old the tattoo is, and how well the tattoo was applied in the first place. There are a number of methods that are proving more promising and effective than ever, especially when used with a good healing cream to help the skin heal after being treated.

andnbsp;

Tattoo removal used to involve some very painful surgeries that would often leave unsightly scars. Now people have the option of being treated with lasers, which have become the preferred treatment because they don’t involve surgery, are lower risk and have less side effects. They often do, however, require multiple treatments to remove the ink. The procedures are done on an outpatient basis and patients may or may not require topical or local anesthesia. Very often, a good healing cream can assist the skin in recovering from the laser treatment and prevent scarring.

andnbsp;

When a laser is being used to remove a tattoo, surprisingly, blue and black are the easiest colors to remove while green and yellow are the hardest. This is because black pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths and the other colors absorb the laser rays selectively and will only respond to lasers targeted to their pigment color.

andnbsp;

There are three types of lasers designed specifically for tattoo removal, and they all involve a technique where the laser emits short, high-energy pulses to break up the ink so that it can be absorbed by the immune system and expelled from the body.

andnbsp;

Undergoing laser removal can be quite painful – even more painful than getting the original tattoo put on. We have heard it likened to having hot grease splattered on your skin or being snapped by a rubber band. Ouch! Sometimes people will take a non-aspirin pain reliever prior to the procedure or apply a prescription anesthetic cream a couple hours before to help with discomfort.

andnbsp;

Immediately after the procedure, the doctor will generally apply an antibiotic ointment and dress the area to keep it clean. After the risk of infection has passed and some healing has occurred, many people find benefit from using a nourishing healing cream to support the skin and lessen the chance of scarring. Skin may feel slightly sunburned for two or more days and the treated area could stay red for a few weeks. If the site forms a scab, you’ll want to take care not to rip the scab off and to let it fall off naturally.

Read This Before Buying a Healing Cream for Eczema

If you have ever had eczema or know someone who does, please let us know what you think of this video. We have had a number of people who have reported great results when using our product, Jeans Cream as a healing cream for eczema. Through researching the skin online, however, we have seen that many eczema sufferers will find a healing cream that works to heal and soothe their skin for a while, and after using that same product over and over, the itchy red rash will return. It must feel frustrating to keep searching for answers and finding only temporary or limited solutions.

That’s one of the reasons we find this blog so interesting. Many people believe that the skin and the gut are connected. The woman who made this video is the blogger at PrimitiveMommy.com. She has made the connection between skin and gut for herself through personal experience. She has discovered that much of her eczema problem, as well as her son’s, stems from an intolerance to certain foods like eggs, kale and spinach. After cutting these food triggers out of her diet, her eczema has dramatically lessened in severity.

Watch the video and see what she has to say. Then, let us know what your perspective is on this issue. Have you discovered any allergic cause to your skin challenges as well?

andnbsp;

April in the above video strongly encourages people do not use steroid creams. There are a few reasons for this. The skin develops resistance to the steroids over time, and stronger steroids with harsher chemicals need to be used to help the skin absorb the medicine. Often, steroid creams – instead of simple healing creams – have unhealthy or painful side effects such as: thinning of the skin, easy bruising, burn marks on the skin, liver and kidney damage, permanent dilation of some blood vessels, and a weakened immune system.

andnbsp;

At one point somewhat recently, April had such a bad outbreak of eczema, that she had to keep bandages on her hands and arms. Rather than resort to steroidal creams, she took a look at her eating habits to explore how her skin may just be reflecting issues going on inside her body. And, indeed – April discovered a number of allergies, including those mentioned above. Once these foods were removed from her diet, her skin got night-and-day better.

Stretch. Run. Walk. Jump. Dance.

Jeans Cream Healing Cancer Through Dance

We all know the saying, physician “There’s nothing like a good cry.” And we know how true it is. When what we’re feeling gets stuck, stuff it’s terrible. We get cranky, frustrated, sluggish, or confused. But when our emotions move through us, we are relieved and become free to face the world anew.

The same is true in our bodies. When our blood and lymph aren’t circulating well, our bodies weaken and become toxic. We are more susceptible to disease.

Circulation is vital to well-being and physical healing. So move. Every day. Swing your arms. Twist your hips. Bend your knees. Stretch. Run. Walk. Jump. Dance.

Feelings Always Win ~ Let Them Heal You

Cathy ThorneHow many times have you tried to will away a feeling to no avail? Some of us try to stuff our feelings, ignore them, or positive-think them away, but no matter how we try, our feelings always win. They come out in distorted ways (this is especially true with anger and resentment) or they take us over at the most inopportune times.

While allowing our honest feelings may be uncomfortable at first, by surrendering to the inner experience of a feeling – the pure energy of it – you can begin to feel in a way that allows an emotion to complete its process and heal you. Our feelings are always giving us important information about what’s important to us, what we truly need, and whether our thinking is healthy or not.

The next time an uncomfortable feeling emerges, close your eyes and let yourself feel the truth of it for a moment before trying to do anything about it. The more you do this, the less you will be swung around by your emotions, and the more you’ll be living from a centered place of power and authenticity.

What Would You Say to the Heroes of 9/11 Who Now Have Cancer?

firefighters 9/11Yesterday the federal government added over 50 cancers to the list of health problems that will be covered by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, order which brings coverage to rescue workers and people who were living near ground zero on September 11, 2001. While many argue that funding for this will run out pretty quickly, they are also glad the post-tragedy problems the heroes of 9/11 are facing are finally being acknowledged.

Certainly each cancer has its own set of challenges, symptoms and treatments, but from what you learned through the course of your own battle with cancer, what would you like to tell those who fought hard for others on the day the towers fell and are now fighting hard for their own lives?
