This is a question that we are asked on occasions, so we thought we would do a little bit of research. Unfortunately Tattoo removal creams are not effective in removing tattoo ink from the skins dermis. There is no way that cream can penetrate deep enough to target this second layer of the skin. Whilst they made fade a tattoo they cannot provide you with complete removal.
Tattoo removal creams contain lots of chemicals, which are intended to dissolve the tattoo from the skin. Some of those creams will have an acid base, which if could penetrate to the dermis could potentially cause scarring so their safety should be questioned.
Lasers continue to be the best way to either remove or lighten your tattoo if you don’t want to compromise your cover-up.
