Tattoos can be memorable, but they can also be regrettable. If you regret getting a tattoo or don’t like the appearance of a tattoo anymore due to fading or blurring, there are options to remove it. This can also be beneficial if you experience a complication due to a tattoo, such as infection or allergic reaction.
Tattoo ink is drawn beneath the top layer of the skin, which makes removing the ink challenging and complex in some cases. Depending on the ink, size and location, different treatment options may be recommended. For example, some inks respond better to laser treatments. Small tattoos may be best suited for surgical removal, while larger tattoos may not be.
Consult your provider about what options would work best for you. Don’t attempt to remove the tattoo on your own. DIY creams and at-home treatments for tattoo removal will be less effective and may cause issues like infection or irritation.
