The Truth About Tattoo Removal
Tattoo removal is achieved in one of two ways. The first is that the body absorbs the ink and the second is that the ink is pushed or extracted up and out of the skin. All methods other than laser removal require breakage of the skin so that ink can be pushed out via natural, mechanical, or chemical processes. Lasers are the only method that can break down the ink without breaking the skin, allowing the body to absorb the ink naturally and pass it out of your system.
The truth of the matter is, other than physical excision of the tattoo (which is expensive and leaves a scar), the only truly effective way of completely removing a tattoo is with a professional laser. Though home tattoo removal and non-laser tattoo removal may seem appealing, they are rarely effective.
