Top Five Ways to Remove a Tattoo

· Uncategorized · Comments Off on Top Five Ways to Remove a Tattoo

Solutions for an unwanted tattoo….

  1.  The absolute safest and most effective way to remove unwanted ink is with a Q-switched laser.  The latest technology virtually shatters the ink and the surrounding skin is left unaffected.
  2. The second option is makeup.  Dermablend or Tattoo Camo offer products that are quite effective in hiding a tattoo.
  3. Surgical removal is effective for small tattoos in areas where the skin is stretchy enough to be excised and stitched back together.  This option, however, will leave a scar at the incision site.
  4. Chemical removal creams and acids – NOT a good idea.  These creams use acids the peel away layers of skin, most likely leaving a scar behind.  They are highly irritating to the skin, and typically will only fade the tattoo, not remove it.
  5. Dermabrasion and Salt Scrubs – also NOT a good solution.  While they sand away the surface of the skin, if you go deep enough to where the ink is deposited, you are going to end up with a scar.
