Tattoo Removal Cream: An Option That Works?

What Is Tattoo Removal Cream?

Tattoo removal creams are products that claim to help make tattoos less noticeable or remove them altogether. Many turn to these creams and purchase from them in local department stores or online in hopes of removing unwanted tattoos. So, do tattoo removal creams really work?

Do Tattoo Removal Creams Work?

If you read tattoo removal cream reviews, ads, or infomercials, you’d think it was a miracle cream. All you need to do is use the cream to get rid of unwanted tattoos once and for all. They will tell you they are the best options for tattoo removal.

Tattoo removal creams claim to fade your tattoo. And it’s true that some can help with slight fading. But don’t let fancy marketing pull the wool over your eyes. The claims of the majority of tattoo creams are not true.

The best these creams can do is remove tattoo pigments from the top layer of skin. Tattoo removal creams cannot access the layer of skin where the tattoo ink is present, so they cannot effectively remove your tattoo.

The Risks Associated with Tattoo Removal Creams

Tattoo removal creams often contain a variety of chemicals that cause pain and skin damage as well as a variety of other harmful side effects.

Possible Dangerous Side Effects of Tattoo Removal Creams

  • Chemical burns
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Itching
  • Scabbing
  • Skin discolouration
  • Infection
  • Permanent scarring

Other Dangerous Tattoo Removal Options to Avoid

Tattoo creams are not the only tattoo removal options to avoid. Trichloroacetic acid tattoo removal, dermabrasion tattoo removal, salabrasion tattoo removal, and even surgical excision can do more harm than good.
