It will be possible to remove, with a simple cream the permanent tattoos that until now could only be removed by laser.
Canadian student Alec Falkenham should be proud of his invention. The young man was able to create what we had hoped for a long time ago. A cream that removes tattoos and has the appearance of a conventional moisturizer.
The invention replaces the old cells with new ones, eliminating all paint marks on the skin. The scientific name given to the cream is Bisphosphonate Liposomal Tattoo Removal (BLTR) and will be sold for only $ 4.50. It allows the removal of up to 10 cm² of tattoo and replaces the treatments currently available in the market ranging from 75 to 300 dollars.
The BLTR acts on the cells called macrophages, responsible for absorbing the pigment of the inks. The cream stimulates the body to produce new macrophages leaving the skin “clean” and without any scarring.
Alec Falkenham is studying Pathology at Dalhousie University in Canada and still does not know when the BLTR will be available for commercialization.
