Why Tatto Removal Creams Don't Work

Jan. 19, 2017

If you are having second thoughts about that tattoo you once loved and want a quick, easy and painless way to get rid of it, you may be tempted to try one of those tattoo removal creams on the market. The honest truth is, they don't work.

Most tattoo removal creams claim that they can entirely remove your unwanted tattoo because they contain bleaching ingredients. The reality is that some creams can fade your tattoo, but it's next to impossible to completely remove it.  You need laser tattoo removal for dark blue and black inks. That's because the ink from tattoos lies far below the surface in the secondary layers. Topical creams simply can't reach there. What ends up happening is that the cream will remove some of the color from the top layer, leaving you with a distorted tattoo.

In addition to not entirely removing your once-loved tattoo, the chemicals contained within the creams can produce harmful, unwanted side effects that can include scarring, chemical burns or permanent skin texture changes. Additional problems can occur when directions for using the cream call for you to abrade your skin before applying it. Your results will only equal the same fading that you would see over time with sun exposure or gradual skin bleaching. In addition, bleaching and/or natural tattoo removal creams also cost a lot, which means you will end up wasting your money while your tattoo remains.

Fortunately, there is a solution that truly works and yet is not horribly expensive. The Eraser Clinic uses laser technology to help you remove those unwanted tattoos and get the look you want. We use only the most advanced lasers that will completely remove your tattoos in a reasonable amount of time while also eliminating side effects such as scarring or changes in skin texture.
