A large percentage of patients who get tattoos eventually decide that it was a mistake and they begin looking for ways to get rid of them. The standard way to get rid of a tattoo is with laser treatments and, fortunately with the current laser technology, a large percentage of tattoos can be eliminated with little or no evidence that they were ever there.
Unfortunately, some people try online or over-the-counter preparations to get rid of the ink and wind up with permanent scarring or skin color changes with minimal, if any change in the tattoo. These preparations generally just damage the skin and do not target the ink like the laser does.
Don’t compound one mistake with another. Leave tattoo removal to the experts.
