How to Remove Tattoo at Home

Getting a tattoo is a creative way of expressing ourselves. As the tattoo business is now big, the number of people who regret getting inked has also risen. People may love the ink initially, but want to get rid of it later for whatever reasons. There are numerous procedures in the market for tattoo removal.

A lot of them are remarkably successful and others not so much. One of the popular methods of tattoo removal is the Saline tattoo removal. Here’s everything you need to know about using saline solution to get rid of the unwanted tattoos.

What is Saline tattoo removal?

Saline tattoo removal is more of a natural approach to removal of tattoos. It is less painful and less intrusive. A natural solution, called Li-FT is implanted over the existing tattoo to break up the pigment. The solution contains ingredients like sea salt, orange flower extract, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, sterile water, Potassium Sorbate and Potassium Benzoate.

It is effective, but slower than some other tattoo removal procedures. It is safe and natural only when performed by a trained technician. It is similar to the sailbrasion that was once performed by the physicians. It is ideal for dark skin tones, sensitive skin, and for those who have allergic reactions to tattoo pigment. It is used to lighten tattoos including the ones around the eyes.

How does it work?

The very first step is similar to traditional tattooing. A technician, tattoo the saline solution into the area to be treated using a device that is very similar to an ink gun, to puncture the topmost layer of the skin to open the area. The high concentration solution in the cells surrounding the pigment and beneath it rise in the area containing concentrations of salt.

This process is called equalisation. Equalisation forces the pigment from the dermal layer upward to the epidermis, that is the foremost layer of the skin, by osmosis to equalise the concentration of salt water.

The pigment is pulled to the skin surface and heals into a scab. When the scab is shed, the pigment falls off with it, revealing a lightened tattoo. Three to four procedures are expected before the clients can see the desired results. After healing of the treated area, it can be re-tattooed.

How is this different from laser?

The laser works by a totally different mechanism. It uses a beam of monochromatic light. Each color of the tattoo needs to be targeted separately with the correct wavelength to penetrate and break up the particular color. With time, the immune system absorbs the pigment and the tattoo is lightened.

Some differences between saline and laser tattoo removal.

● with saline removal, most of the ink is lifted through the skin surface. With laser removal, all of the ink is absorbed in the body.

● Saline is color agnostic. It works on all colors, whereas laser machines emits only certain wavelengths. This means that it can only break up certain colors of pigment.

● Laser removal cannot target white ink.

● Saline treatment is cost effective in comparison to the laser tattoo removal.

● Laser damage the epidermis and dermis. Saline does no damage to the skin.

● Saline removal does not cause any injuries. Laser removal includes major risks of second and third degree burns, keloid and hair loss, hypertrophic scarring.

● Often time laser turns the tattoo to unwanted colors like red, green or orange and is not removable after that.

● Saline works for all permanent makeup, including microblading. The laser cannot remove microblading since it does not see the pigments in case of any scars.

● Laser is not suitable for dark skin colors. Saline works for all skin colors.

● Laser treatment may take up to 30 sessions and often cannot be finished due to the skin damage that is caused by the number of treatments. Saline requires less sessions and does not cause any harm to the skin.

● Saline requires 4 weeks between each session. Laser requires at least 8-12 weeks between each session.

● Laser is not safe around the eyes. Saline is safe to be used for any area.

● Laser cannot treat allergic reactions caused by the ink. Saline is a good option in such cases.

● Saline is safe and organic. Laser rays may cause cancer.

● Laser treatment is much more painful in comparison to the Saline treatment.

Who should avoid Saline treatment?

● Those who have glaucoma.

● Pregnant or lactating women.

● Those who are under 18 years of age.

● People with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and undiagnosed blisters or rashes on the area to be treated.

● Those diagnosed with blood conditions that are transmittable like HIV or hepatitis.

● People prone to inflammatory hypopigmentation or keloids.

● Those with active skin cancer.

● People undergoing chemotherapy.

● People with allergies to numbing agents or alcohol.

● Those with high blood pressure, healing disorders or mitral valve disorder.

● People who are hemophiliac.

Tattoo removal creams: Dangerous Myth or Pain-FREE Solution?

If you are second-guessing a tattoo, you are definitely not the only one. From aesthetic outgrows, former partner’s names to drunk tattoos gone wrong, there are multiple reasons why one would be looking for getting rid of it.

Laser is still the most popular method. Between its high cost and pain, it is not everyone’s cup of tea and it is why most people look for an easy way out, a cover-up. Another popular option is tattoo removal creams that are said to be pain-free. However, before you reach out to try a DIY and try these gimmicky products, it is important to brush up your knowledge a little.

Are these tattoo removal creams safe? Do they live up to their claims? Are they efficient? Following are the information we gathered about these products which you need to know.

Tattoo Removal Cream
Tattoo Removal Creams

What is a tattoo removal cream?

As the name implies, it is a product that claims to lighten or remove the permanent ink. They claim to use bleaching and peeling the top layer of the skin to diminish the pigment. These products have gained popularity in recent years for being pain-free and economical.

They are easily available in general stores and online retail shops. You can imagine how products with bleaching properties or claiming to remove the top skin may have severe side effects. Before trying these products, make sure you have thorough knowledge about them.

How do these products work?

Most tattoo removal creams use skin bleaching agents like hydroquinone and trichloroacetic acid. However, some claim to use natural alternatives and no harsh additives. When you apply a product containing skin lighteners and caustic acid, the skin’s top layer gradually starts peeling and the macrophages filled with the ink are released and break down into the lymphatic system.

However, the ink is injected into the dermis which is the second layer, and not the epidermis (the first layer). Since the tattoo removal creams only slough away the epidermis, most times they are not effective when it comes to removing ink. The best these creams can do is fade the tattoo away. This leaves a discolored, distorted version of the tattoo which can lead to permanent scarring.

Are these creams safe and efficient?

The short answer is, no. these creams are neither safe nor efficient. They don’t have the best health track records. Dermatologists and health professionals are strictly against the use of these “miracle creams”. There have been incidents where these products have burned customers’ skin or permanently scarred it.

Some products also contain harmful cancer-causing chemicals.

tattoo removal cream side effects
Tattoo Removal Cream Side Effects

While ingredients like trichloroacetic acid, which is one of the main ingredients in these creams, are safe to use for medical purposes but can be very dangerous if used without supervision and specifically without knowledge of its potency.

Another harmful ingredient used in these creams is phenoxyethanol hydroquinone. It is addictive that can cause cancer, damage the central nervous system, and can be harmful to unborn children.

While manufacturers claim that these creams are gentle and natural, in reality, they can damage the skin and can be highly potent. It is smarter and safer to avoid using such creams. Also, make sure not to be fooled by the claims that any of these tattoo removal creams are FDA approved. The food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never approved any such product.

Potential Side Effects

While the aforementioned chemicals are regulated by the FDA, their use in tattoo removal products is not. These chemicals can cause side effects like redness, burning, rashes, peeling, permanent discoloration or inflammation, and permanent scarring.

If you have allergies, these creams could cause symptoms that can be potentially life-threatening. These symptoms include rashes, hives, nausea, swelling, vomiting, and anaphylaxis.

Do these products work?

There is not enough evidence to say whether these creams work or not. Most times they can be very damaging not just to your skin but to your overall health.

Popular Tattoo Removal Creams

There are n number of tattoo removal creams available in the market. Following are four products that are popular and easily available.

Inkology tattoo removal cream

Inkology is one of the most popular tattoo removal products available in the market. It claims to be FDA-approved. It also claims that it does not use harmful ingredients and is all-natural, hypoallergenic, safe, and clinically proven. The product also boasts that it is suitable for everyone and that it does not contain ingredients like hydroquinone, TCA, or chromabright.

Inkology Tattoo Removal Cream
Inkology Tattoo Removal Cream

However, not all of these claims are true. There are some issues with the ingredients that are very concerning. One of the ingredients used in the formula is phenoxyethanol, which as mentioned before is known to cause side effects like damaging the nervous system. Phenoxyethanol can be especially dangerous if absorbed into the skin and that is exactly what these tattoo removal creams do, penetrate the skin.

Inkology claims that it does not use chromabright in the formula but it lists it as one of the ingredients and it is mentioned twice. While chromabright is not known for being harmful, the claims made by Inkology are deceptive.

Another deceptive trait by Inkology is that it is FDA approved. Like mentioned before, FDA has never approved a tattoo removal cream, DIY tattoo removal kits, or ointments. In fact, FDA’s official website tells you not to use such products and that they can cause burns, rashes, and scarring.

Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade System

Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade System
Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade System

If you google tattoo removal creams, Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade System appears on the top of the results. It is surprising because it has an average rating of 2.5 on Amazon. Like Inkology, this product also deceptively claims that it has an FDA-approved formula while assuring its customers that it is 100% safe and effective.

As for the ingredients used in the product, there is no informed list of ingredients listed anywhere on the internet. Even the packaging does not provide any information about the ingredients used. Several sites promoting this product claim it does not have a “specific” list of ingredients, which for a variety of reasons, is deeply troubling.

Even though there is a lot of hype around this product, it does not seem to live up to the expectations. Customer reviews claim that the microbead cleanser, which is one of the steps in the system, causes extreme discomfort. Customers also say that the cream is not painless but incredibly painful. Reviews also speak about scarring, skin irritation, and allergic reactions lasting up to two weeks.

When it comes to effectiveness, reviews claim that it does not work at all.

ThINK tattoo removal cream

ThINK Tattoo Removal Cream
ThINK Tattoo Removal Cream

ThINK was formerly known as the Lazer cream. It was earlier marketed as Lazer cream but was discontinued and eventually relaunched by renaming it thINK cream. It is marketed as 100% natural and effective and that it can diminish all old and new tattoos and all colors.

ThINK tattoo removal cream is one of the cheapest tattoo removal products available online. It is available for less than $50. However, it does not offer a one-month purchase option. The minimum supply that you have to buy is 3 months.

The manufacturer also claims the product is clinically tested but like the Wrecking balm tattoo fade system, this product also does not provide information about the ingredients contained. There is no information on the internet or the packaging which is a major red flag. There is also no information about where the product is manufactured.

Tat B Gone Tattoo removal system

This is yet again one of the most popular tattoo removal products available in the market. Tat B gone tattoo removal system is claimed to be simple, affordable, and comfortable and that it does not cause scabbing or scarring. The reviews say otherwise. Amazon reviews reveal the product has numerous side effects and that it does nothing.

This product follows in its deceptive competitors’ footsteps by not providing any information about a list of ingredients, does not contain a label, and has sketchy packaging. Customers have also said that it does not fade the tattoo instead turns the skin yellow.
