Numbing Cream For Tattoo Removal will help eliminate pain by numbing deep into the dermis layer of skin with it’s fast water-based absorption qualities. Getting your tattoo taken off is a very painful medical procedure. Most procedures will take several months & sessions before it is completely removed or at least 75% faded for a good cover-up tattoo. This means you will have to go back to the laser specialist 4-8 times before your tattoo is officially gone. Ouch! A laser hitting the tattoo ink hurts because the ink is trapped deep into the dermis pockets of that particular skin layer. For the laser to extract the tattoo ink it has to tear away multiple layers of skin in order to break up the ink residing in that spot which is why it takes several trips to the office to get a tattoo permanently removed. A strong numbing cream for tattoo removal containing 5% lidocaine is the only way to approach this type of procedure for ultimate comfort.
