What Tattoo Removal Methods Actually Work?

Why You Should Opt for Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment

With so many different tattoo removal methods out, it can be hard to sort fact from fiction and choose the right one for you.

There are so many different methods of tattoo removal out there, and it can be difficult to choose one that’s right for you. To give you a hand, we’ve drawn up a list of the most common methods, and done a little bit of digging to see if they are all as brilliant as they seem.

Laser tattoo removal

Laser tattoo removal is the most popular method of tattoo removal, as well as the safest and most effective. Your tattoo will be removed over a number of sessions, with the laser breaking down the ink bit by bit. Yes, it can take time, but it has a very high success rate. In regards to pain, if you can bear having a tattoo you can certainly bear this! Tattoo Removal Experts are the providers of the best laser tattoo removal London has to offer.

Tattoo removal creams

Tattoo removal creams seem almost too good to be true. They can be applied in your own home and are painless to use. What’s not to love about that? Well, the bad news is that they are too good to be true. They just aren’t strong enough to penetrate the skin to the level needed to break down tattoo ink, and should be avoided.

Skin grafts

The rich and famous do have access to treatments that the rest of us don’t, but one music star took his tattoo removal treatment to the next level. Pharrell Williams, rather than opting for laser tattoo removal, had his tattoos removed using skin grafts. There’s no doubt that it worked – but it’s a hugely painful and complex process.

Surgical removal

Some people choose to have their tattoos removed surgically. This is much better suited to smaller tattoos, as quite a lot of skin can need to be removed. While it is effective, it does come with a risk of scarring and infection. If you have a larger tattoo, it simply won’t be a viable option for you anyway.


Dermabrasion is a popular beauty treatment, but it is also being marketed as an effective tattoo removal treatment. It can work, but it is very painful and a person is left with large, open wounds that need to be taken care of. Such are the risks involved, it can be hard to find a practitioner who is willing or even able to perform it.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are another kind of tattoo removal that are seeing an increase in interest. The process pretty gruesome to even think about though. Chemicals are applied which then remove the top layer of skin, taking the tattoo ink with them. There’s always the risk that you could react poorly to the chemicals too, due to their strength.

Laser treatment is the right choice

As you can see, laser tattoo removal is by far the most straightforward method of tattoo removal. If you find a qualified practitioner like Tattoo Removal Experts, you will be looked after every step of the way, and have a treatment plan that is perfectly suited to your unique needs.
